    Default Lucky day !

    I have been on pins and needles for 6 days over this and today I was relieved of my stress.

    I had a bid on it with 1 other person for 4 days. Up until a couple of days ago and then the bidders starting spilling in. It inched up slowly for the most part and was still well within my reach late last night. It was going to end this AM about a half an hour after I got to work and being 5:30 I thought nobody on the east would be bidding that early. I dropped a bid in the last few seconds that was all cash I had on hand. 5 seconds later it was over and I lost. Waaaaaaaa. But I still got my money . If you are reading this and won this razor I want you to know how lucky you really are. 1/2 hr. after the bidding closed a friend that owed me some money gave it to me. Had that happened before the bid ended I would have paid Waaaayyyy to much for that razor but it would be on it's way to my house. :<0). No hard feelings here as I am still happy to have the cash in pocket and you have helped save me from my own RAD., so I actually THANK YOU !!!!

    OH and congratulations !!!! You rackus frackus rootin tootin varmint bidder you . I hope someone from SRP got it.

    I shudder at the thought of what the final sales price was. Congrats on keeping your cash, at least until your next razor purchase.

    I didnt even bother to bid. As much as I would have loved it, I knew beyond a doubt it would exceed the parameters of what I consider "justified" Though I'm sure I could have talked myself into it...

    I usually back out when I see the bidder bus pull up to the window. I hate fights especially when everybody is trying to kill each other with dollars LMAO. This one would have been like a bomb at the end if I had the cash. I went back and looked at the bids and I was beat by 5 bucks in 8/10 ths of a second. I set my limit on the way in I just didn't have it in my pocket at the time. Ohhhh welll.. I missed a DD Stainless that way too. It keeps me focused really. Back to making the forge and buying a good slug o . I put a piece of duck tap over where the bid button is on my monitor. That should do it.


    No I did not misspell it.
