The Wonders of eBay
Sam and I have spent the entire day on eBay, looking for things for other people. There are many dumbass kids who come to school here without proper equipment, and Sam (being a kind, wonderful, caring sort) finds things for them on eBay. Saddles seem to be the most common wanted item and there are some great deals on there. Unless you’re a dumbass kid who came to school here without a saddle. Then you refuse to pay more than $200 but you want a goddamn Prestige. I mean really, you’ve got to be willing to pay a little more than that.
Then, and these kids irk me far more than the aforementioned dumbasses, there are the kids who just want to borrow things. Yes, Laura, I’m talking about you. These kids borrow things until they either break them or find something better to borrow. Either way, it’s downright obnoxious. If you plan to borrow a saddle, at least offer to clean it. Or do something else in exchange. Saddles are an expensive investment, and these borrowers do not respect them. Really, letting people borrow anything is a bad idea. Laura, for example, has gone through AT LEAST five pairs of borrowed boots and half chaps. “Gone through” here meaning “destroyed with no compensation to owners.” That girl is probably the worst offender on campus. She will never pay for anything, even if she says she will. How she sees this as okay is beyond me.
Now that I’ve got that out of my system, I’ll return to eBay. So far I’ve bought two saddles and a pair of dress boots from there. I think it’s a fantastic place to find anything equine. Because that shit is expensive. You know it. I know it. So let’s just wander over to eBay and find us some deals. Like my Petrie dress boots for $81. That’s right. Sam found them. She rocks.
