Ruing the Day on eBay

I think there should be a new category of psychological condition should be investigated. Its name is ‘eBay regret’. This describes the emotional fallout of impulsively bidding for something stupid on eBay and then actually fucking winning it.

Need an example? Just look at this pottery owl I won the other day.

Surely the most pointless – and, quite frankly, rubbish – thing I’ve ever bought in my life…

Looking at the pic of your pottery owl on eBay, I would amend my previous desription of it to the following:

It looks like an owl with a bowl of American cheese poured over it's head - which has obviously put it in a "fowl" mood.
