    Augg! Missed the bid...

    Utter dissapointment. I missed bidding on a pretty rare Gallet on the 'bay by less than a minute. I had a starter bid in place, but got caught up in work stuff and forgot to check it again before it ended...

    I tell myself it wasn't meant to happen, but it feels like little consolation.
    Has this ever happened to you? Do you have bidding horror stories?

    Never happens - that's what snipes are for, and if it goes for more than the snipe then so be it, saves me getting into a bidding war I'll regret later. OK well to be honest it does happen but only when I can't be bothered to set up the snipe.

    Same here. My internet connection is prone to dropping - so setting up a snipe is a much safer way of doing it if its something I really want. I use Myibidder.com

    But I sympathise.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    That's happened to me.
    Sitting with the bid ready to be confirmed for a last second snipe then drifted away on
    a day dream.....Oh no, how did that happen.
    The ones I miss always seem to go cheaply, Marrick probably gets them.

    Me too...Marrick must be the culprit!!!

    Missing a snipe over a quarter or fifty cents always kills me too.

    It happened because you didn't use a snipe service

    Indeed. Ebay without a snipe service is like a bungy without the cord Well, with less blood. Maybe.

    I use Gixen.
