Elaine writes about her “social experience” that she went through at 3 am waiting for the US launch and this Daily Mail article details how shelves were wiped out within 10 minutes after one LA store’s opening. Clearly some people are very eager shoppers. But, in the words of Peter from Family Guy, you know what really grinds my gears?
Crazy eBay ladies.
Yes, I said it. And if you are a crazy eBay lady, why you gotta be so mean?
Bloggers like Lauren from Style of One's Own posted on Instagram that she could grab a couple extra purses for her readers. Cool in my books. She’s not ripping anybody off, it’s a reasonable amount (~3 items), and those items have already been confirmed to specific people. But the greedy ladies who swoop in there loading purses by the cartful so they can sell at 3 times the price online? Not. Cool.
Now I understand reselling like this isn’t illegal or immoral or one of the worst things you could do in life. But it’s still pretty douchey, just sayin'. Why not leave some merchandise for future customers, like the lady who’s been busting her butt working long hours and can’t afford to line up outside at 7am because, oh right, she has more important things to do. Why do you have to be so greedy and grab everything at the expense of others, even those who have been waiting just as long as you have?
So to any of those over eager shoppers who are stockpiling merchandise only to resell at triple the price - it’s Friday and I’m just sayin’... maybe it’s time to chill out.
Anybody else out there who's frustrated with swipe and sell online shopping? Leave a comment below!
