UNKNOWN INCIDENT WATER/LIQUIDS

"the steam generater on this machine does not work however it does power up and the iron does heat up."

I'm a broken iron, man, diddle-diddle diddle dum dum dum
So, it’s not so much a steam iron as just an iron then? And quite an unnecessarily bulky one too, I’d imagine.

“please note that the water tank is missing”

Well, that’s something I suppose, shoud reduce the postage cost.
It’s not just me though, is it? Surely I’m not the only one to be wondering exactly who would want to buy a faulty iron? Something that you hold in your hand, which gets very hot under normal use and you have to be careful with. Would you really want to try to do your ironing with one you’ve been told, right from the start, is faulty?
Oh well, go on then, if you must:

HIJINKS

"the wheel bearing collapsed and shot the wheel off…"

poor thing :(
“…which we never found half way along the A30 carefully ruining our 2 week holiday to Newquay!!”
Terrible shame. Terrible, terrible shame.
If this was a film, I’d be cross-referencing all rogue-wheel sightings along the A30 on my Macbook with the dodgily concealed Apple logo on the lid right about now, but instead I’m busy bunging the URL into Firefox so I can get the link for the jpeg image to go with this post which saves me having to print screen, crop and resave it. It’s not nearly as sexy as it sounds.
“There is a bad earth on the lights and this is an easy fix”
Shame the caravan itself doesn’t have a silver lining. Or maybe it does?

UNKNOWN INCIDENT

"XBOX 360 WIRELESS CONTROLLER dog bites"


Well, that doesn’t look bad, maybe it was a very small dog, with soft teeth or something.

“Picture above is not of actual item”

Oh.

And hang, on, you’ve got another one exactly the same and you couldn’t take a picture of that, either?
Did this dog also eat your camera or what?

HUMAN ERROR

"unfortunately after starting I was unable to finish"

Ideal for transporting rust from place to place
Eyes bigger than your belly?
Well you’re not getting any pudding ’til you’ve cleared all of that, starving kids in Africa, etc etc etc

“THIS ITEM IS FOR PICKUP ONLY”

So, I’ll need something to carry it with? Which, if I already have, I’d need this for what, exactly?

UNKNOWN INCIDENT

"The first thing you'll notice when you use a SZ2XP is how much better things look on screen."


Not quite the first thing I noticed about the screen, to be honest…

Cosmetically, it is in a good condition with a few scratches on the lid cover due to normal use and usual wearing on side pannels.

Apart from the cracked screen, that is.
So; Cosmetically good, providing the lid remains closed.

It is fitted with Hard Disk Drop Protection, like an airbag for your hard disc.

Shame it didn’t have a similar feature for the screen really.

HUMAN ERROR

"it has a few battle scars here and there as it was my sisters and she is rubbish at driving lol"

Ren-oh-no

“the previous owner of the car was also my brother, so i can definatly say its wanted for nothing, or has not been abused.”

Until your sister got hold of it, obviously. At which point it really wanted its timing belt changed.

UNKNOWN INCIDENT

"Here we have a razor scooter i carnt seem to get it to work."

“could be something or nothing im useless or you could take it back to the shop”

Blimey, that truly is a staggering level of ineptitude, if you’re aware you could take it back to the shop for a full refund but instead you’re selling it at a loss…

"WAS MY DAUGHTERS,SHE ACCIDENTALLY DROPPED IT…SHES BOUGHT A DSI NOW,WANT MONEY TOWARDS NEW GAME."


Money towards game=much better investment. Well done, your daughter, for understanding this simple fact.

RAGE

"This has been totally battered (Axe damage on the screen by the looks of it)"

Axe damage?
Um, Disrepair Man? I think we might need a new category for this one.
Don’t think ‘Rage’ is going to quite cover this one.

UNKNOWN INCIDENT

"crack to the bottom left of the screen, does not actually affect the picture."


Apart from in the bottom left, obviously.
