    :mad: Man there some mofos at e-bay.

    I have very small budget for christmass but manage to get gifts for all on my list but my girlfriend.

    So i thought of the perfect gift

    A long time algo me and my girlfrind were talking about child hood memories.

    This converstation was a year algo but i remembered it.

    She said as a child her favriote cartoon charcter was strawberry shortcake.

    And her family wasnt wealthy at the time but she could remember those strawberry shortcake lunch pails with those cool thermises and that it was made out of metal and how all her classmates had one but her.

    And how she wanted one so bad but never had gotten one.

    So i went to e-bay and sure enough they had them there the originals from her time

    so with so many for sale i manage to find a few in good condition some with and with out thermist

    the ones with thermist were a littile more but not much more

    so i bid on a single thermist and a lunch pail sepratly

    the thermist was 99 cents but i was shocked when it skyrocketed to 9 dollers and kept climbing it didnt make any since at all why pay that much when you can get the lunch pail and thermist orginal for 3 bucks cheaper?

    so i said the hell with that

    next was a lunch pail still in the plastic but there were few other ones with same plastic brand new never out of the package.

    i lost that one some one bid on it right as it was closeing to out bid me by 1 doller


    then i was ok what the hell is going on theres other ones with included stuff way cheaper then the one i was biding on

    i took a closer look at all the lunch pails it turns out nothing was bided on except the stuff i bided on

    its like some one was jacking up the price on only the things i wanted

    there was better stuff's there and some cheaper then what i was going for yet the only prices that kept going up was what i was intrestead in

    man what a scam

    so i gave up on it :'(

    that really sucks
