I lost the Willard shirt I was bidding on.

This sounds so shallow, but I'm crying right now. I hate ebay. That shirt... seriously, it's one of the few things that I really, really want. It means a lot to me; it's just so damn perfect. I thought I'd never see it up on ebay again. And then there it was and I was so excited...

And at the last minute some fucker outbids me by $.50!!!

So mad I could scream.

I'm so sorry that fucker outbid you! *shakes a mighty fist* That really really sucks... Maybe something better will come along, and you'll crush the competition with your bids!

Oh no! *hugs you*
I just lost an auction too (on a swedish auction site). It was a thing I wanted to give to one of my brothers because he is not well right now. I got pretty sad and upset too (was also outbid in the last minute).
Have you tried contacting the seller? He/She seems to specialize in t-shirts. Maybe he/she has another or knows where to get one.

I'm sorry, this has nothing to do with the post but . . . the icon! Mr Flibble!!! *loves Red Dwarf, loves hologrammatic-virus infected Rimmer*

Meow! I've got a shirt for Psycho with the exact same set-up! It came in a film tin. I can see where I put that tin, then we know who produces it and maybe then it'll be easier to track it down! What do you think?

Doesn't sound shallow--I know the feeling. I somehow know I'm going to be outbid on this because people are already fighting over it and I haven't even entered in my bid yet.

I am sorry you lost the shirt, however. I was near-tears when someone outbid me on a "Re-Animator" Zippo lighter last year.

Try Emailing the seller to see if they have another or where they got it. Also, you can mention that you're interested if the high bidder doesn't follow through for any reason. (I sell on ebAy and it happen a lot.) Otherwise you could try the high bidder and see if they'd be willing to resell it to you after they get it, for a bit more than they paid.
