All Stayed Quiet Through to the End of the Auction

I was getting very excited! I would get this item at about $13 plus the shipping! After all, this is what I put in the maximum bid. I even added a decimal point and 6 cents after it!

This is where I was being an idiot, a fool, a total buffoon! Trying to be funny could have had the laughs on ME!

After all, I knew I would win the auction at a long, long shot! Who else would bid anywhere near this astronomical a figure?

That's right - another fool and an idiot!

Guess What Happened???

Notice the time left and that there are two new bids - mine and one other. This other bid was an AUTOMATIC BID!!!

I Paid for My Stupidity...

Thanks for the great info Daniel. I don't know much about Ebay but your information has now peaked my interest!
When you are new to eBay or haven't used it very much, it is very easy to get caught up in doing the way eBay suggests, which isn't always in your best interest.

I've been around eBay now since 2001, though for a long space of time, I did not use it. The last couple years, I've been using it extensively again, but most of the tricks I know now I've learnt in the first three years using it, learnt by doing.

It's sad to see folks on the first day of an auction placing bids on it. When I see that, and enough people having done it, I pass that auction by.
