I have been asked many times about shipping so I will put it all here so there are no more questions.
How I go about shipping and when you can honestly expect your item.
DAY ONE OF SHIPPING- I go to see who has paid for stuff. I get really excited when I see the dollar signs lit up. I dance around the house. I sit down and say okay lets get shipping. I then decide to go do lunch first since I can afford it as I did see some dollar signs lit up. I kiss my paypal card and praise GOD. I then get in the car as there is no time for cooking,I do have to pack stuff.
STILL ON DAY ONE- I get home after a lunch which took me three hours. I have to eat AND chat. Thats why we call it doing lunch it is actually a sporting event. I get home and the phone rings and it is Fang. Fang is a buyer who talks to me for three hours plus. I'm really nice to them as they buy alot. At least I do not lie to you.
STILL DAY ONE- Fang has now sucked the life from me and I need to relax. Now you know why they are called Fang. Now I have emails to answer and emergencies to handle and that takes up the rest of my day. It is now night time and I go on various excursions,investigations,phone calls,what have you.
DAY TWO- I get up with full intentions of packing and shipping. I look again to see who bought what and answer emails. I begin to pack it. Begin to pack means this. I wonder if I shall ever find the stuff and I hang my head in my hands and fear for my life. I notice that someone has bought something I haven't seen in a good three months. Only GOD himself knows where this item is. I move on and make a stiff glass of cherry Koolaid. I ponder life.
STILL ON DAY TWO- While in my daze the phone rings again,who could it be? It is Fang again! Fang is having an emergency. They tell me that a demon is in the house and ask me to talk them through it. Can you give me advice they ask? Sure I tell tem,"GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE!" What more can I say? Again I need to get it together and go do lunch. I plan on coming back and making a dent in the shipping. It doesn't go as planned because I forgot that I have another investigation that I can't blow off because it is with the historical society. I love those people.
DAY THREE-- the deflated pumkin head private part scratcher comes over. Okay,you know NOTHING is getting done today. He is pure chaos. This guy can talk more then me! Do you people realize the magnatude of that? I mean he could blow up the world. When we used to try and talk it was one always trying to get a word in. Not a match made in Heaven by no means. He begins to tell me about this girl who broke her knee in four places and how her grandmother would not take her to the emergency room. This is the same girl who is dating my son and likes to be shot with paint balls before they make -out. People,this is a very sick world we live in! I tell him to be quiet so I can pack mystuff up. I then see this old guy who lives behind me in his yard. He is not to stable on his feet so I make sure he doesn't fall down and never get up. This takes a long,long,long time. I can almost feel my life passing me. One time he fell down and he was outside for I think two days before anyone found him. Good thing it was summer time. I'm the only young person on my street. Everyone else is old. They like to come out and spy on me too. It's also a strange street. We can run down the road naked in the summer and no one will see us. We do this when the lights go out as we don't want to scare or offend anyone and most of all ourselves.
DAY FOUR- Today is the day! It's going to happen and I can feel the magic. I get ready,I have hot tea but then I realize I have to go to Delaware and feed the homeless man Charlie. Look people,it's still only day four! I find a new homeless person and take them home to prepare to give them a home at the local Wal-mart. I do not like Wal-mart but face it,it is great for homeless people and I have been populating them for the last two years with societies discards. Wal-mart has it all. Lawn and garden which is great for sleeping. Bathrooms for washing and a camping section for God Forbid,procreating in private,tents you know!
STILL DAY FOUR- Back from Walmart and again the phone rings. Low and Behold it is a buyer asking where the item is. You can hear a pin drop............... I uh did not do it yet. How long has it been? Your kidding me! Really ! No way! I then try like heck to not laugh what is left of my mind out my ears. The audacity! The NERVE! I see it has only been a week! What MUST they have been thinking?
DAY FIVE AND THE BOTTOM LINE- It will get to you. I promise it will. It always does. AND if it doesn't I have been known to find things a good year later. The year thing was only one time so do not worry. So please just relax. I never bug anyone for payments unless I do not know you. If your a buyer for a long time as 90 percent of you are,you already know this. This is for the few new people who think I ship as soon as you pay,I don't and I can't. if you need an item as soon as you win it or pay for it, as much as I want your business I will have to pass. Please do not bid if you can't wait 7 to 8 days for me to BEGIN shipping. Then you get it about 2 two 4 days after depending on where you live. I honestly just can't do it any faster.
!!!! PLEASE READ MY UPDATED TERMS & CONDITIONS !!!!
!!!! PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING !!!!
!! IF YOU BID ON MY ITEM(S) YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS!!
ATTENTION TO ALL BIDDERS/WATCHERS: As much as I appreciate the overwhelming
response to my auctions- I have to be honest, it's a little bit TOO
With that being said- My auctions have all the available information that I
know of in the listing/description, I can tell you no more. Emails asking
me to send all the information I have on an already OVER auction will go
ignored- because again, you have it all in the auction. Use the eBay tools
for auctions/listings that have ended. Please do not ask me- that is why
the LiveHelp guys are available.
Another thing, I don't care when/how/where you got any of my phone numbers..
You are NOT to call me in the wee hours of the morning- that means
anytime after 10:00 p.m.EST, UNLESS I tell you you can. NO calls at 3am no matter what is out to get you.
I can give you absolutely no love advice. I cannot make you fly. I have run auctions on my love advise and do you really want to take it from me anyway?.
I get a ton of email everyday, I can only answer it when I'm home or
have time. Were the world an ideal place, I would have time to talk to
everyone and answer questions- but it's not and I don't. The guy who
shaves his head at 3 p.m. I find...........interesting, but again- I
cannot answer every single email. I can not tell you how to live,
breathe, when you should make a phone call, go to the bathroom or what
to wear when you dress.
I cannot email you back 10 and 20 times a day and I will no longer.This means everyone.
Lately, my shipping has been a little late- and I apologize.
I try and do it once a week. Even when late- everyone does get their items. If
I miss something I will get it to you, I always do- and to make up for it I
usually send a little something extra. I don't think recently I have been that late but you never know when I will again. I have a life and things come up. All of my regular buyers already know this. This excludes my Loving Louie who will torture me if he doesn't get it FAST.
Also, if you have been blocked, you have been blocked for a reason,
and you shall remain so. eBay provides the blocking feature as a tool
to protect sellers from non-paying bidders (or bidders with a history
of non-payment), "shill" bidders, or people who attempt to set up a
payment plan AFTER the end of an auction. (Marvin!)
I have no problem arranging a payment schedule (within reason and NOT
for just a couple of bucks either) for an item IF you contact me PRIOR
to the auctions end/close.
Emails that tell me how great you are in the bedroom do nothing for
me and never have, PLEASE tell someone else, I beseech you.
I like my men classy on the outside and a wild animal in private. If
you feel the need to tell me all about it- I doubt that it is that good.
If you are seriously seeking a mate, then send me a picture with a brief
description of yourself and what your looking for in that "special someone"
and I will add you to my dating service.
I'm sure you'll find your way through the Universe without my
assistance, Dee Dee
As I stated above, my shipping is slow- but you will get your items!
Due to the nature of what I do (which how I'm able to discover these
oddities and artifacts that you all seem to enjoy so much), I will now
be shipping only once per week. If you pay the day AFTER I have done
my weekly shipping- you WILL have to wait until the following week.
ALSO, if you live OUTSIDE of the U.S. and want/expect Expedited, Insured,
Registered Mail, or some other type of Tracking- YOU WILL NEED TO CONTACT
ME and tell me your preference and I will respond within a few days and
inform you of what shipping options are available and you will be issued
a new Invoice with the updated shipping information of your choice.
AND Lastly, whether you live in or outside the U.S. or on the moon or in
Hades- whereever. If you have doubts about your Postal Service- you need
to have your package INSURED. You know more about where you live
than I do.
I WILL NOT be responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged packages
Now get out there and bid on something! :P Dee Dee
