Auction Watch #221

Sometimes I write this when I am tired. When I’m tired, it is harder to hide my misplaced anger.

I’m becoming an angry old man. But it feels right. There should be one-last-old-man yelling about M.U.S.C.L.E. figures.

That’s how it feels when I yell about M.U.S.C.L.E. figures. Sadly, it’s probably more like this:

Speaking of misplaced angry, I shouldn’t be angry at this; but I am:

I’m a mother of three beautiful children and I help support my family with this eBay business so that I may stay home with them.

The first auction, Mattel M.U.S.C.L.E. Men LOT Of 159 Vintage Muscle Figures, is the kind of M.U.S.C.L.E. auction that really upsets me. In fairness, it is the type of auction that always frustrates me.

I don’t fucking care about your life.

Begrudgingly, I have shared, hopefully, minimal information about my life. Nobody is here because they like me. They should be here because they love M.U.S.C.L.E figures. Admittedly, after M.U.S.C.L.E. figures were released over 30 years ago, I hope people cut me some slack when I’m trying to create daily posts.

Even with that acceptance, I don’t want a sympathetic-pass. That’s why a listing like this one makes me want to vomit.

This seller isn’t some type of hero. No. They are seven steps below the bum asking for your dollar. Fuck off lady.

You aren’t trying to add a little money into your pocket; you’re trying to add top dollar into your pocket. FUUUUUUCK YOU.

Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe I’m the old man yelling at kids to stay off his lawn.

I am tired.

The second auction, Vintage M.U.S.C.L.E. MUSCLE Men, 1985 Mattel, (37) color/flesh, made my head pop too. I don’t like being this tired and angry.

Tired of those long auction listings? Tired of someone always out bidding you? Well i share your frustration, that is why i listed this one as buy it now!!!

I must be tired.

Over a dollar per figure, for shit, and he doesn’t want the listing lasting too long.

I give up.

When I’m this tired I get too angry.

(Or maybe I just need something to write about and angry if the gift.)

Uggggh. Just throwing this here:

Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

    I couldn’t agree more. If you think this is nuts, collect Hot Wheels and join a Facebook group for that line. There is enough posts in a month to feed a page like UoM for a year.
