I love buying and selling on Ebay. This past week I bid on and won this really cute pink bucket hat.
When I went to pay for it, it was showing as having been paid and feedback was posted for me as being a quick payer. I immediately contacted the seller on Ebay and told him there was an error and asked him to send me an invoice. I got an Ebay message today and all it said was “check your personal email.” So I went to me email and there it was. One of the most touching emails I have ever received.
NO VETERAN PAYS FOR MY AUCTIONS!!! Just let me thank you for everything that
you have done. I'm a 6'5'' 380 pound guy that will most likely cry like a
little girl if i was where you were in Iraq. Please accept this as a very
small gift from us in my family, again thanks you for everything and fighting
for our freedom. God bless you and the USA. Between us on this (wink).
Ebay has a “Me” section where you can post pictures and things about yourself. He had taken the time to go look at that. Not sure why, but he did. Here is a link for you to check it out for yourself. http://members.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewUserPage&userid=flipper3964
Here is what I have on my Ebay post:
I am originally from Louisiana but have been in Ohio for six years. I live with all boys ~ my husband, son, and dog! I enjoy shopping and selling on Ebay. I have met lots of really nice folks through Ebay. I am a proud Air Force veteran, having served Iraqi Freedom. My husband serves in the Air Force and is a veteran of the Persian Gulf War and Iraqi Freedom. Please pray and suppport our troops!
I flew medical missions as an EMT and helped care for our wounded soldiers. They are true heroes! It was a privilege for me to serve them! I feel so undeserving of this sweet gesture, but so very touched.
I love you, America!
BTW - that is me eating a grasshopper in Survival School. Good stuff!
