Watch it !

Just been on Ebay.... wanted a couple of 18mm watch straps..... 99p (each)  inc p&p From Hong Kong..... !   ...   What a bargain.... no need for second thoughts...
so....


why are there [font=Verdana]"9 Watchers"[/font]   watching a " Buy it Now"  Watch strap....

makes you wonder..... perhaps they are waiting for the price to go down....or maybe they are just wasting time !..!...    Roll eyes

Re: Watch it !

naw I often shove things on buy it now in my watch list for a later date, or to ask the comptroller if its something we want/need......
but since it takes a form 43 filled out in triplicate and submitted at least 3 months in advance to get approval for unplanned spending it can take a while to get a definitive answer and then make the purchase  Cheesy

Re: Watch it !

Guilty as charged!
I do the same thing. See something I want / like / need / desire but can't afford at present s I'll add it to the watch list for a later date.
To date over 50 items have vanished and been wiped from my 'wanted' list  Roll eyes
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Watch it !

ahh but mine has an iron fist on the grounds that if I buy 1 99p item then i'll probably buy fifty 99p items so if I can prove I still want or need it after 90 days then its able to be discussed ......
I'm not sure why I agree to such things other than someone has to wipe my arse and I'd best do what they want .....

Re: Watch it !

Maybe other sellers who want to see if these items sell at the advertised price ?

I have £0 income at the moment and thus every penny counts - especially 99 of the little critters!

Re: Watch it !

I often use 'watch it' as a memory jogger.
