They were $99 and 20 miles away. I just had to have them. (The heart wants what the heart wants.)
I emailed the seller and asked for a better picture of the 'hidden' chair. He didn't provide one, only saying they were all in the same condition.
He had a 100% rating. I took a chance, paid for them, then arranged with a friend w/truck to pick them up.
It was getting dark, so we loaded up and came home.
Then, this morning - in the daylight ....
....I flipped them over.
The 'hidden' chair is damaged - right on the bend of one of the runners. Son of a .....!
Really, it's no use going through any eBay arbitration.
Even though I suppose I could have refused the purchase when I picked them up and contacted eBay, I'm just too tired anymore and have to pick my battles.
Obviously, the seller deliberately deceived me. Buyer beware. *sigh*
I'll see if I can strengthen this runner, somehow. If not, this chair will (most likely) become a planter.
As for the 'heart wants what the heart wants' - I'm really gonna have to slap that thing. Stupid heart.
