Surrender Mili Wifey, Or That Time I Met The Wicked Old Witch Of Ebay



I thought I would take a Netflix Luke Cage recap break to give all of my lovely friends a story time. Even though, you should be embracing the Marvel-osity because superheroes are awesome and avenging is just one big party.


Until you catch the #nerdfever, I will bring you another chapter in my soap operatic life. I know, I KNOW, why do I have to be so dramatic? Because drama keeps popping up out of nowhere. My life should seriously be a Broadway play.

Scratch that. A musical.

*Over the top orchestra music*
*Obnoxious singing voice begins here*
It's Mili Wifey's Life, there's passion and pizazz!
In Mili Wifey's Life, and all that jazz!
She's just trying to be a milso and pug mommy.
But the crazy is coming at her like a Drama Tsunami.
It's Mili Wifey's Life!
There might be some strife!
But she's blonde and she's lively,
and you best believe she's fiesty,
She's Mili Wifey!
Mili Wifey, you better run for your Lifeyyyyyyyyyyy!

Oh come on, you guys would pay $175 to watch this on Broadway, right? #oramIright


But truly, I digress.

Anyhoo, my parents have been cleaning out their storage and I found all my old pageant gowns, Barbies, my mother's evening wear she wore when I competed in pageants, along with a host of other items. And I thought to myself:

"Mili Wifey, you could sell all this stuff. You could make money. You could contribute to the family's finances."

Basically, you could pay off some of those bills you have because of moments in your life like this:


I have a YSL problem. YOU SEE LIKE, I really need designer things. #sorrynotsorry

Thus, I went about the process of placing items up for sale on Ebay. I thought to myself, this will be fun. I can make money. I will learn the value of a dollar. I will combat my gross consumerism I love so very much. And to be perfectly honest, I did fairly well. I made a good amount of money to pay off some bills and most of my buyers were extremely happy.

Until, that is, I met:


The Wicked Old Witch Of Ebay.

Now, let me just tell you friends that last week I was extremely sick with a sinus infection. And, on Monday, The Wicked Old Witch Of Ebay purchased a beaded top owned previously by my mother. Since I was ill, I messaged her it would be Tuesday or possibly Wednesday morning before the top was mailed to her. She understood and was kind about the situation, even wishing me well. Being that she was so nice, I made sure Military Husband took the package to work with him on Tuesday. I even sent the top she purchased to her through priority mail. Therefore, she received the top on Thursday.

By Thursday afternoon, The Wicked Old Witch Of Ebay sent me this message in all capital letters:

HI. I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW I AM REALLY DISAPPOINTED IN MY PURCHASE. AS A MATTER OF FACT, I AM ANGRY. I AM AN OLD WOMAN AND YOU TOOK ADVANTAGE OF ME. YOU SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME THIS XL RUNS SMALLER THAN A NORMAL XL. I CAN WEAR AN XL. THIS DID NOT FIT. THAT'S NOT ALL. THE TOP, CONTRARY TO WHAT YOU SAID, WAS USED. BEADS ARE FALLING OFF EVERYWHERE. YOU ARE A LIAR. YOU ARE A FRAUD. I AM FILING A COMPLAINT WITH EBAY. HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER BUT YOU ARE A SCAMMER.


My reaction: I immediately looked at the listing because I was upset. I listed the item as "Used Clothing." Never did I once say this item was new. As for the size, my mother bought the top when she was a size 16-18. The top is marked XL. I would assume that fits an XL. I wear a size small and there has been more than one occasion when I have purchased size smalls and the small fit unusually tight. This is just typical with clothing. As for the beading, I noticed no beading falling off this top. I did wear beaded clothes for years in pageants and beads do fall off, but it never was a problem for me. As a matter of fact, I included the extra bag of beads (unopened) that came with the top.

I wrote the Wicked Old Witch Of Ebay the following:

Hello! I am so sorry you are disappointed with your purchase. I think it is only fair you allow me to handle this problem instead of contacting Ebay first (this is actually suggested by Ebay). I will refund your money if you send me back the top. Please send confirmation by tracking number you have sent me the top and I will immediately refund your money.

And this was her response:

YOU ARE A LIAR. WHY WOULD I PAY TO SEND THIS BACK TO YOU AND WAIT ON THE MONEY NOT KNOWING IF YOU WOULD SEND IT. YOU SEND ME MONEY OR ELSE I FILE A COMPLAINT AND WRITE A BAD REVIEW OF YOU. YOU WON'T SCAM AN OLDER PERSON AGAIN!


My reaction: I sent her a refund. Now, I know some of you might disagree with this choice, but I really did not want her writing a bad review on my Ebay account. I have a high ranking on Ebay, and I still had listings. A "recent bad review" surely would not be favorable to selling anything on the site.

I wrote her the following:

Hello again. You should have received an email notifying you that I refunded your money. I am sorry you were disappointed. The XL fit my mother and she was a size 16-18 at the time she purchased the top. The item was listed as "used" which you can clearly see if you check the listing. However, I refunded your money because I do want to maintain a good reputation as a seller. Have a wonderful day.

And do you know what the Wicked Old Witch Of Ebay did?


She wrote as her review of me:

SATISFACTORY EBAYER I GUESS. BUT A REAL BITCH!!

Really? REALLY?

I was nice to her. I sent her the top faster than I guaranteed through my listing. I had Military Husband take time out of his day to mail it to her. I refunded ALL of her money without even receiving the top back.

Le Sigh.


Once my final listings are complete, I am DONE with Ebay. 

This is the world's way of reminding me that I am actually sane and not the crazy bitch I believed myself to be.

Have you ever sold anything on Ebay? Have you ever had an experience like this? Please let me know in the comments below!

The Wicked Old Witch Of Ebay poisoned my Ebay account with senile poppies because I am,

  2. I'm sorry to hear this experience. It pisses me off to be accused of something I'm not. And be called names without even hearing my side yet. I hope she's happy now. And in this conversation/scenario, let me remind you that you're the sane one.

  3. Oh, this makes me so mad. I think you got scammed by this person. I don't blame you for not wanting to sell anymore on eBay. I've never sold on there but thought about it. This makes me really not want to do it. Wish there was something you could do that would warn people against her...maybe give her a bad review.

  4. My sister keeps insisting that some of our junk be sold on ebay and I keep resisting. Why? Because she wants me to mange it and I consider it all a huge aggravation. Your post verifies that. The customer wasn't unhappy. She just found a very convenient way to get something for free. She is likely wearing it now and telling all of her friends of her clever scam. And I bet she isn't even an old lady.

  8. Ugh! This is why I hate people, what a wicked bitch!

  9. This makes me mad! I sell on Ebay all the time, so I know how frustrating people are. Ebay tends to protect the buyer over the seller too, unfortunately. I have only had one complaint and it was so upsetting because I couldn't reply to her review and explain it to the public.
    Don't give up! The majority of people are normal, it's the minority that are hard to please.

  10. eBay is a PAIN in the ass these days. I sell Natalie's outgrown clothes there and I've received e-mails like that too. It drives me INSANE. People want to get stuff for free and it pisses me off.

  12. I haaaaateee eBay. I've bought and sold through them, and they're always a huge hassle. I deleted my account after it was hacked and someone bought things from it, which eBay was no help (Paypal fixed it) with and one of the crazy sellers called me (how they got my #, I have no clue) and threatened to take me to small claims court, so I "damn well better not be lying". One, why would I lie? And two, it'd be more expensive to go to court than to just refund me.

  13. OMD! Thank you for letting me know. I have been contemplating selling some stuff on EBay but I don't need the grief! What a nutjob.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Did you get the top back? There is just no need to behave in that manner. I've bought and sold on ebay in the past but it's been I while. Don't think I'll be selling my old junk on there anytime soon.

    BTW I'm not being ignorant but I'm giving the Luke Cage posts a wide berth for now since you seem to be watching them a lot faster than I can.

    1. Don't worry about it! I put them up and get a lot of hits months later on the recaps. My agent Carter ones got real popular a few months ago. I know it takes everyone time. But I just like to get them up and done! Haha!

  15. I would report that lady to Ebay as a fraud. I bet she probably does this to people all the time.

  16. Well, I guess you can write a mean review right back! Ugh! I hate that people like that ruin things for everyone else.

  17. I have the same affliction of the necessity for designer things....

  18. Wow, she clearly needs some pills of some kind. I've debated becoming a seller on Etsy, but then I hear stories like this....

  19. Eek! Sounds like she was out to be mad, no matter what. Some people you just can't please.

  20. Can you rate people who purchase items so that other people know not to sell to them? :P She sounds like a piece of work!

  21. I hate selling things on eBay. I'll list like 100 descriptive items and bitches will still be like "what color is it?" Idk, look at the damn picture! Ugh
