Living with an eBay-aholic

Oh dear. Ruth discovered eBay today. She has been on it constantly for several hours. I didn't realise that at some time in her past she has had contact with troopers. The air was particularly blue when she missed out on a plasma TV for the sake of a fiver, all because she couldn't enter her credit card details for some wool that she had successfully won a bidding war for.

Her technique for said victory was to wait until one minute before the auction ended, finger poised on the ENTER key, so that she could deliver the coup de grace with an increase of 50p on her bid. Never in the course of human endeavour has there been such a feral cry of elation, although the war dance and air punching are pretty common fare for Premiership football goal celebrations.
