  • o/t small rant

    Why is it that when Americans buy things on Ebay from Canada,
    (and it is clearly stated in the auction that the item is in Canada and
    shipping times may vary due to customs) , a few days after the auction ends I get several emails a day asking why it is taking so long!!!!
    Being Canadian and buying things via ebay in the US, I do not expect my package
    for at least 2-3 weeks. And I am glad when it shows up then
    Are we Canadians a more patient people .

      Because americans have no sense, and don't understand that there is a border in the way.

      This is well known...

      Many americans believe that the suburbs of LA and NYC intersect, and that you can transfer from NYC subway to LA buses somewhere.

          That is one reason I do not ship to canada.(customs)

          And before I get flamed, I have tried it and don't like it.

            I ship to Canada all the time.
            Mainly to my grandson and granddaughter.
            I've also shipped antique small engines to Canada from eBay sales.
            It's a boarder, not a barrier.

              Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

              It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

                You've dealt with idiot americans through eBay...
                I've dealt with my share of idiot canadians through eBay..

                I've also dealt with idiot English, idiot Japanese, and an idiot Brazilian (but an idiot with a good sense of humor at least...).

                I've ALSO dealt with a much larger number of people from many countries who were intelligent, could actually READ auction descriptions, and follow directions.
                Fortunately, those folks still outnumber the *&#$^ retards who can't (or won't) READ and FOLLOW directions.

                  I shipped a guitar to Australia via regular partial post at the request of of the eBay auction winner. It took 9 weeks to get there and he was delighted that it arrived that quickly.
                  If their paying I'm shipping!
                  Sold over $7,000 on eBay last year. Probably bought $8,000
