Default Why does the holiday season bring out the morons?

I hate this time of year.

I can seriously go 10 months with little to zero problems. Xmas creeps up and the idiots crawl out...

Just this week so far [And its Wednesday AM]

2 buyers that buy first then say "I need this tomorrow". One is overseas! [12 pound package]
3 Buyers can not afford or changed mind, "please cancel"
1 buyer with 0 feedback buys and asks "can I pay with bank transfer?"
1 Buyer needs delivery this Sunday


Sigh. If it wasn't for my massive love of money I would just close eBay until January...

I ask myself the same question. Buyer purchases over the weekend expects the item to be delivered already. Im like DUDE im not a billion dollar company that can afford to do that.

You either get prepared to deal with it, or fall of the map for 2 months like I do. That's about the only method that prevents me from wanting to kill people during the holidays. I have lost so much to scammers in the past during this time of year, so I just gave up.

Yes, I'm dealing with similar doughnuts as well.

Item bought Monday at 5pm. Email Tuesday morning - "Where is my item?"

I hear you. Put two main accounts on holiday. Nowt going to harm them. 2nd year running I've done that. Eases the grief.
