Something about eBay brings out the silly questions in people. I don’t know if it’s eBay themselves encouraging buyers, as they used to do, to ask a question, any question, just to prove the seller is actually responsive – or if there’s something more fundamental… or just mental going on.
But I do know that most sellers I talk to have a store of these stories. My own favourite remains the classic:
What colour are these black jeans?
(I know what they meant, because black jeans come in many shades. It’s still a daft question.)
What’s your silliest ASQ ever?
(PS: We had a lot of responses to the last open thread we did. We could do one of these every Saturday if you like. What do you reckon?)
