There is no limit to the level of idiocy in the world. See this? That's an auction Matt and I threw up a few days ago. Note well the following phrases:
"As-is: fix or for parts"
"This is a dead pedal"
"one of the guys in my band plugged in the power supply with the wrong polarity and blew it up"
"It doesn't turn on with the battery in it or with a 9v adapter."
In my mind, that's pretty fucking clear. And yet, the guy who won the auction sent me the following e-mail, which I quote it verbatim and in its entirety:
dose mxr phaser work right
Mr. Bob Dodd, a.k.a. unewink: you, sir, are the very definition of fuckwit. I look upon you and despair.

After he called me to let me know that he won't be paying for the pedal (he sounds exactly as you might imagine he sounds), I now have to comb through the other bidders to see if anyone wants to take it, and failing that, I have to list it again. I only hope to god he never breeds.

Tonight, I finally get to see the house that I want in Downingtown! I feel bad for feeling so happy; the owner's husband's funeral was this morning :/
