EBAY Drama

I sabotage my good karma.
I bid on an item at ebay....
Let these 3 email exchanges sum up my experience:


You retracted a $75.00 bid , but you also bid $36.00 earlier and that was the bid that won. Are you still wanting to cancel this bid? Please let me know. Brad

Dear Brad,

Yours was the 1st bid I bid on. I had bid up to $55.55, then I got confirmation that I had needed to bid higher. I didn't, still thinking it was a Barbie Doll house, I went back into Ebay in search of another one. I found it, and gave a top bid of $50.50, I then got confirmation on that one that my bid was good.
This morning I went back on line to check out the Doll House, because porcelain just didn't seem appropriate for my 6 year old granddaughter to have as a play house.
I then went into Google and realized my mistake! I didn't think anything of my bid, thinking someone will probably out bid me because the $55.55 bid on your item wasn't enough.
Lo and Behold....a few minutes later, I get notification that someone had dropped out of the bidding (on your item) and I was the highest bidder.
Panic set in and you know the rest of the story.

Merry Christmas and Much Thanks

Too funny. You sound like you got it all together now. Thanks for the story. I'll have something to tell my wife at dinner. Thanks again. Brad
