So I am selling a bottle of cologne on ebay that was purchased for me that I really don't like.

Yeah, I know, I swore off ebay like last year. But I could use some extra money and haven't had any problems thus far.

A potential buyer asked me this question:

used perfume, cologne? wow man you are rare umm i would never buy somethin like this

O RLY? Then why did you ask me a question about it?

but is it a tester or edt and why are u sellin it u said u used it tell me the reason plz and after all i will buy this for 23 shipped if u want consider thanks

:confused:I thought you said you would never buy it. So why are you making me an offer?

A short time later, I got this follow-up question

dont take my words offensive plz im tryna b friendly lol i take that offer back 25 shipped tryna b a little nicer what do u say? ;)

I say you need to take an English class.

Seriously, though, I am going to be nicer and tell him I can't accept his offer. I've got other people looking it at.

Spoken as someone that has bought and sold a lot on Ebay do not take his offer, do as you stated and decline it. He's just the sort of douchewaffle to leave you an incomprehensible negative rating for some silly reason.

If Ebay works like our local little regional version, the questions will show if you answer them, and others will see what a turd they are.

To answer the first: "Thank you for your opinion."

To answer the second: "From someone who would 'never buy' something like this that's an intriguing offer, but I decline." (I assume your reason for selling is already in the listing, if not add it here - he did ask).

To answer the third: "Let us see how the auction progresses."

The internet: Destroying the English language ever since AOL.

Before AOL the internet was mostly safe. Before AOL people could spell on the internet. Now, you need a translator just to read some sites like Craigs list, EBay, and many forums.

I fear the current generation of English / lanugage teachers.

But - in some people's defense - some of it is a language barrier (but these are CLEARLY not that).

How about "I'm sorry, I'm not sure I understand you. Besides which, I can only send to someone in my own country, and given your language skills, it would appear that you are not local".

:devil:

(ok, sure, I'm being slightly racist and un-multi-cultural... and mean :D)

I just got a private message from YouTube commenting on my spitz puppies:

"R U sellin ur puppys still?"

Sorry, but even if we did have any to adopt out your lack of typing skills and butchering of the English language makes me shiver to think how poorly they'll be treated under your "care".

But that's how they told me I had to spell on the intarwebz in "Leet-Speek for Dummies"!:devil:

"Can I axe you a question"

"I'm sure axing anyone anything is illegal in all 50 states."

"Can I axe you a question"

I have a friend whose response to this is "Why did you axe the poor question? Did that question do anything to you?"
