The Most Moronic Thing I Have Seen On Ebay

Yesterday I noticed something that might prove humans are de-evolving. People buying gift card on Ebay for more than they are worth. I could not believe my eyes, the total amount, both the cost and the shipping, was more than what was on the card to begin with. Maybe I just do not understand, is there something I am not understanding why someone would pay more for a gift card than was on the gift card? One of the gift cards was a Wal-Mart gift card. I have a Wal-Mart just down the road from me. Why would I buy a gift card, for more than it is worth, on Ebay, when I could just go and get my own gift card?

There are some really gullible fools around. I should give Ebay a try, see if I can get rid of some of the rubbish I've got accumulating in my house!

yeah the bid will keep going up and up . it sucks that when you have something worth well to sell the bid will end low

Maybe the person doesnt wanna leave there house .Wait then they could order from the site and get their own gift card . I have seen odd things on ebay, one being a girl selling /posing in dirty socks . The bid went up to around 25 . now that is just sick .

Yes I saw that recently too. Could not believe it! Makes no sense to me. Guess it is an addiction like playing slot machines or something. It is crazy!!

I have seen gift cards for sale on ebay before but I have never seen them go for more than they are worth. I could think of two things one maybe someone who lives in a country that does not have a Walmart is trying to buy it to send as a gift to someone or 2 someone is just bidding up the price that wont pay. Those are the only things I can think of. I think you can order gift cards right from the Walmart site though so they are not very smart if that is the case.
