How do you win a car by mistake?

Well of course I intended to bid, just didn't expect to win, thought it would go for loads more. I guess curiousity really did kill the cat.

Well done anyway 😀

I am, that's the problem. I could physically do it, but not eat for the rest of the month/ year. 

I'm going to be in the dog house later.

I think your missus needs to change your eBay password 🤣

It's telling my missus I'm worried about. 

The Galaxy goes today, leaving me with

1999 Nissan Almera - worth £250 at a push? 

1992 Rover 416 auto - £385

1987 Mazda 323 - £300.

Triple roffle? 😭😂😭😂

There's a harsh lesson here but that's not going to help your immediate predicament.

You could contact the seller and sound them out, they may have been expecting more and want to relist, although I would expect them to want the fees.

Failing that, as others have said, collect and roffle, I'll have 6 and 26 please!

If you agree to cancel the sale they should get their fees refunded.

It's even an automatic; I'm sure you said recently you didn't want another auto!

I don't think cancelling the purchase on eBay is the thing to do, it's not the seller's fault after all.

Totally agree; I was just elaborating on Spartacus's thought that the seller may have wanted more money and prefer to cancel as well.

This was the Rover I sent you in your other thread when looking for a car and you said no no no to an automatic..... 

I know, it was on my watch list, and I was like - Ooh, I wonder how the bidding is going....Oh, I'm highest bidder...Don't worry Alan, there's loads of time left, it's worth much more. 

Then 24 hours later. I wonder how much it went for in the end, shame as it was a nice car..... Oh fuck. 

Cue largest panic attack I've had for a few years. 

😳

I would help bail you out but I am so close to going away on holiday I dont think I could risk not having the money back  before I go away.....if we were to roffle it 😕

EDIT - what sort of appetite is there on here for that car?

I've just done a calculation. 

After bills, I have £399.76 left to last me to 26th July. 

That leaves £14.76 to survive on. 

 

Oh fuck.

 

 

Sell a kidney?
