Do I sense a tad of built up frustration?


;)


'Exclusive to Us'
...I made it.

'Extension Telephone'
...ringer not working.

'Original Cables'
...cables need replacing.

'Original Two Tone Phone'
...originally two broken phones.

'One of these sold recently for £1000'
...I'm expecting no less for mine.

'(famous person's) phone'
...we were told that so it's true and worth a lot of money.

'Sold for Parts/Spares'
...nothing will get this working. We've tried.

Well actually a lot of that is dead on true. Unfortunately I've been duped as well. But my biggest thing is when it's obviously not what they say it is, such as an AE 80, calling it a westerns electric phone, telephone.
Not! Or there listing has such bad English they are not selling from the USA, but rather China, or some other places.

Here's a new one which I read recently:

'Unusual raised monogram'
...somebody put a sticker on it.

I think we all know what "used" is, sellers and buyers can agree on that...

Excellent, Good, fair & poor are some of the different "conditions" we might expect to find the "used" items we seek.

Which brings me to...

     "Condition is used"

Used is not a "condition" of a item...Please stop saying that!

I use terms such as 'Good used condition' - is that ok?
If not I'll stop henceforth.  ;D

Realtors are the same if not worse. I looked at a house, part of the description was a "wood floors". When I looked at the house they had ripped up the carpet, so it was the subfloor & it was wood but not what I expected😀 My other favorite is Fixer upper, in other words junk.

The scariest part of this list is, that most of it's true. Can't remember how many times I've seen ads that use these definitions and not just on eBay.
