Well That Wasn't Fun



Recommended Posts

Earlier today I inadvertently bought about $225 worth of pens and inks ranging from Hero to Sailor 5th anniversary. Stuck my phone in my pocket and it "pocket dialed" my entire order in my eBay cart. Can you say oh......yes I know you could.

 

Luckily my husband is bailing me out of this one and is asking me why I had $45 bottles of ink in my cart :wacko:

 

The good news is I'll have some new inks to play with :blush:

Ouch! What is your husband looking to get on the deal?

 

Enjoy,

Yours,

From a person's actions, we may infer attitudes, beliefs, --- and values. We do not know these characteristics outright. The human dichotomies of trust and distrust, honor and duplicity, love and hate --- all depend on internal states we cannot directly experience. Isn't this what adds zest to our life?

He will probably be getting a pen if I don't like the one. I have to pay him back. We run separate bank accounts just because these sorts of accidents happen from time to time with me I'm sad to say.

Well, as long as no violence erupts.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

No violence just a short lecture about locking my iPhone before putting it in my pocket :/

If you could change from that ~200€ bundle of pens&inks, to a single high quality pen (say 170€) and two already high quality inks (15€ each), what would you do? :)

I go to the wall, pick up the horn, crank the handle. speak into the speaker; "Hello, Mable, give me Alice."

Technology has gone down hill since then.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

A nice excuse for purchasing pens and inks.

I will have to speak sharply to my iPhone. It has done its best to embarrass me, surely it could pocket order me nice surprises once in a while too, to make up for that.

Not the first time this kind of accident has happened?

 

I sense a pattern....

The ink still would be one that I bought, however I would have chose a 14K Duke for the pen.

I'm not so sure how smart mine really is :huh:

Time to 'fess up. It wasn't an accident, was it.

 

Oh I wanted to buy all those pens and inks...just not all at once!!!! :wacko:

Yeah, I'm pretty bad about remembering what I paid where and try as I might to record everything...sigh...

ok we don't have the same tastes. Since you're in USA, you could have a Bexley also for that price http://www.bexleypen.com/category-s/1514.htm.

In any case, you can still sell all the pens you accidentally bought, and get your better pen. :)

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav
