When it comes to giant douchebags, Raymond Rennison may just take the cake. This ass hat ordered the following auction on eBay from one of our associates.
Notice the large amount of photos available on this auction, including:
And, most importantly, the nice short description:
Apparently, Raymond missed all of that, and was shocked when he received exactly what he bid on. So what did Raymond Rennison do? Did he contact the seller and say, “Hey, I was an idiot, didn’t read the description, and would really like to return this thing. My bad. Can I?” Nope, not Ray Nope, this giant asshole files a claim. Gets the money yanked right out of our seller’s PayPal account. And what does this idiot’s claim say?
His claim stated that the item was “so old” the sticker was coming off, that duck stickers were coming off, and the box had damage. You know, just like the ad states and PHOTOS show..
Yes, you’re reading that right. He is pissed off that he got exactly what he ordered. So, congratulations Raymond Rennison of Alta Loma, California. You’re our giant asshat idiot of the day.
Now, if you know Idiot and a Half, you know we like to make sure people know how what our opinion of them is. So, we emailed Raymond. It was this nice, short, simple message:
Subject: This is all about you. Looks like you bought an item on ebay recently. Here’s your story! http://www.idiotandahalf.com/2014/04/raymond-rennison-of-alta-loma-california-is-a-giant-asshat/
Well, Raymond didn’t like it too much. I would think a whole post dedicated to someone would cheer them up, maybe not. Here’s what he had to say about it, then we’ll tear it apart. Sounds like fun!
I have contacted PayPal and Ebay and my lawyer about this email..You should get your facts first before you slander someone. First of all I didn’t buy this item from Ebay, I bought it on Amazon.com. In that ad, which I still have, there is no mention of the toy having any damage..it was advertised as new. I have bought many items on ebay which have come to me unusable and sometimes not as described which I accept for buying a used product. Purchasing on Amazon.com as new is another story. There are none of the pictures of the toy in bad shape or any disclaimers of such ad which is why I bought it. I intend to take action on this slanderous act. My lawyer says none of your facts are true in the purchase and I have definite proof of that I guarantee you…I recommend an immediate cease of this slanderous link. Do not send any further emails directly to me. I am forwarding this email to my lawyer and paypal as well.
Ray, Ray, Ray… Here’s a few things you may not have thought about yourself.
- It’s sad when someone uses the internet, and has no idea what site they are on. I have to wonder how often Raymond is tricked by fishing emails and fake websites.
- There is a big difference between slander and libel. Being he claimed he talked to his lawyer, I would have thought he would have known that. Maybe he needs a new layer?
- On that note, name calling isn’t a crime – yet. And, considering this post has screenshots proving each point it makes, that makes nothing about the story in this post untrue. So, where is the libel?
- Lastly, why contact PayPal and eBay if he is going to claim this is an Amazon purchase? La-la-la dream world!
So, we took the post down for a day or so, and emailed Raymond back.
If what you are stating is true, we would be more than happy to pull the post and ream the person who told us about it a new one. Can you send the link to the listing on Amazon, where no damage is listed?
We have yet to see a link. We doubt we will. We’ll send Ray one more email after this one, then leave it be (wouldn’t want to be harassing him). Stay tuned!
And, just in case someone really doesn’t know what eBay looks like – like Ray – we have found the auction and done a full page screenshot.
