How about a little crow for breakfast?

I don't know where the phrase "eating crow" came from, but according to Wikipedia it means:

To eat boiled crow is to be proven wrong after having strongly expressed one's opinion. In North America, the expression is simply to eat crow.

So this morning I am having a triple helping: I listed a bag I truly believed to be a designer bag worth at least a hundred dollars and assured buyers it was authentic, only to find a Made in China tag inside after a prolonged search. I think I'll just cancel the auction all together.

Then, I sold two puzzles I was relatively certain were complete and listed as such, only to find one of them with a pencilled notation that four pieces were missing on one. I counted the other and found it was short by two pieces. I've actually been paid for both of these already and have to return their money....their money that I could REALLY use right now.

So there you go...feeling really dumb this morning. Hopefully I can make it right with everyone and ease my conscience.

I forgot to order sugar for work this week...it's kinda hard to bake without sugar. At least you don't have to actually work with the people you messed up on...I actually got called a c@#t this week for my mistake. I just have to make it through tonight and then I'm having a glass of wine and enjoying the weekend.

I just got another lukewarm feedback...hate that.

Ugh. At least you know you'll get paid when you work...I feel like I'm spinning my wheels.

I 'eat crow' often. It seems I'm developing a taste for it...
