Maybe I'm being too impatient?

I bought a set of throttle bodies for my gixxer this past Wednesday off of E-Bay. I messaged the guy twice now about when he is going to send them out and to give me the tracking number. I have yet heard from him, but it is only Saturday. His score is good with two neutrals that seem to have worked out in the end. Am I being too impatient or should I start to worry? I really want to get my bike running before I leave for BNOC (Staff Sergeant school). I just want to see what you all would do?

Crappy seller. I sell lots of stuff on ebay and it always goes out the next day. Your stuff will probably come in 3 weeks, if at all.

Impatient, I have gotten things in a couple days and have gotten things up to 2 weeks. Yes they should ship out sooner, but you never know what happens on their end.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

Ebays asks buyers to wait two weeks for a response from a seller.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Did you pay fast after the auction ended? If people wait a week to pay me after the end, I don't really care how soon I ship.

Wait until the date the auction was supposed to end and then start to worry a bit. Seller may not be planning to check the auction until the schedlued due date.

Auction ended early because I did the 'buy it now' deal.
I don't even know why I looked to buy something off of ebay. Last time I did this I didn't get the part and my money was jacked.

Just so you know the guy may have already shipped said item and just hasn't repsonded to you. I have had this happen before.

I mean you won the auction Wed, chances are he didn't check until Thursday possibly and then prob didn't ship til Friday.


Not everyone is as good as you Jim

I know, but the seller is expecting the auction to still be open. What date would the auction have gone to if you didn't end it early?
