Okay so I was super impressed with myself because I found a good deal on a bunch of potato heads and accessories for my son (he is 3). With the $4 shipping the total was $34 and it came with 8 Potato heads and a crap ton of little parts...
Then I got an e-mail that said:
Hello. I shipped your Potato Heads today. The P.O. says that you can expect them on Wednesday (it took two boxes; they are bulky, even though I packed many small pieces inside the bodies of the Potato Heads.) Unfortunately, the Ebay estimate of shipping at $4.00 was very low; I had to pay $19.75, total (including delivery confirmation). Would you mind remitting the difference, or at least splitting it with me?
The only thing I could do was respond with:
I am sorry, but had I known the shipping would be that high I wouldn't have bid on it. We are very low on funds right now and this is a Christmas gift for one of our kids. When I was looking for a deal, I took shipping cost into consideration.
