How do I answer this question from a buyer?

No primary category set

It’s cold in the warehouse and cold fingers don’t make for accurate typing. In my defense I’d like to point out that “W” and “S” are very close together on the keyboard and that it’s a lovely White shirt….

  1. HAHAHA I do that ALL the time..

    my other disaster concerns accounts. I have to type that really slowly around the two ccs and the o…

  2. That is class Chris, thanks for sharing. We are only human. It also shows why eBay COULD be great again, it’s users are generally more human & down to earth, the customers communicate in a much friendlier way (usually) This customer obviously has a GSOH! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Contrast that with amazon, where customers assume they are dealing with a monolithic company so often don’t even try the tactful approach 1st, they come in all guns blazing. Now if only I could get some sales on eBay it’d be ace!

  3. Nice one Chris ๐Ÿ˜†

    I once thanked someone for “shitting at the whirlpool bath shop” I and O are also close together.

  4. I once had some safety goggles for sale. Others were selling loads and I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why mine weren’t selling.

    It took me three months to realise I’d listed them as safety googles. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

  5. Would be very funny for everyone to list incorrect titles and get eBay’s server to suggest “Did you mean: shite shirt?” instead of “Did you mean: white shirt?” which it does if you search for a shite shirt ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Didn’t understand the fuss (see definition #2 and #3 below) until …

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shite
    “The word shite may refer to

    A variant of the word shit, ‘Shite’ is commonly used in the United Kingdom and Ireland

    The shite, the principal character in a Japanese Noh play

    Shite, the person who performs the technique in aikido”

    Could have been worse. The Bots could have flagged the item for being counterfeit theatrical/martial arts clothing. :mrgreen:

  7. LOL But ebay reduce my standing on ebay for putting Twat when i meant tweet. Re twitter. This was a bad typo but i corrected it within 10 minutes though ebay didnt see my point of view and now my policy compliance is…..
    Policy compliance Medium

    This is just because of the above word and yes i have written 3 times asking them to reconsider.
    I am also dyslexic (really i have a degree and i am a RN nurse +++) so its not just me being thick.
    Sorry assuming you will all think that.
    Really peeved with ebay

    I contacted them after i received a reduced account

  8. Next thing, you will see eBay bidding on the term “shite shirt” in adwords and your listing coming up. Not impossible.
