Karma officially has the worst sense of humor in the world...  
So, I bought a tape off of ebay.

I get the tape, but I don't check it right away.

Today I decide to check it.

It ends up being a tape of an hour long British program about motor scooters.

Needless to say, this is not what I thought I was buying.

I've already bought another copy from someone else. If it ends up being scooters too, I shall throw a fit. As is, I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry.

That being said, would anybody like a tape about scooters?

Oh, dear. Poor thing. I don't understand how ebay works... were you conned? Isn't there anything you can do about it?

Well, I emailed the seller and informed them of this... but it doesn't exactly seem like an honest mistake to me. I mean, the description did say that it had been previewed, and I imagine this person isn't blind to the incongruity. Best I can really hope for is that a) they send the correct tape or b) they give me my money back and I send the tape back. If not, then I can leave negative feedback for them (ooh, big whoop) and mourn my losses while considering the fact that I am up one mislabeled tape about scooters.

It's actually kind of funny. Or it would be if it happened to someone not me.

Well, I emailed the person. I'll file a complaint or something if I have too... I'd rather just have the right tape, of course, but I'm really hoping for my money back. And hoping that this other tape that I bought is the right one.

And yeah, ebay can be wonderful or it can be a true bitch. I think this is the first time something like this has happened to me though, so I guess I've been fairly lucky so far.

I love your icon btw

Hehe, thank you. Few of my pictures seem to make decent icons, but that one turned out pretty cool. :D
