14. No point in doing low-dollar sales / buys on EBay at all.
I've been burned two or three times by scenarios like this:

I buy paperbacks and if the bill is only two or three bucks, a month will pass and then I'll get a "sorry, I forgot to send it" message. At that point I tell them that if the order were $50, I'd already have my books, they can keep my $2 and shove it up their ass, and don't even bother sending the book because I already found another fucking copy.

The point here is that neither side in a low-dollar sale is likely to be vigilant about it. The difference here, though, is that in the above instances I have a legitimate beef, regardless of your opinion of the way I handled it. No offense, but you brought it on yourself - and making your phone number available was not a good idea, either.
