    Earn or not earning. It does not matter as long as you know what price is selling outside.

    View MO/MS as a way to check people in Cathay, AP and John3:16 and ms color. They know they can't mark up alot cause MO/MS will take their business away.

    Sitting there like idiots, people don't turn up to collect, people don't tell you they can't turn up, people who bargain with you on the spot, people who take you for granted, people who bomb your handphone and sms you with stupid questions, people who don't read information properly, people who ask you to cater to their locations specially etc etc...

    Try it and you'll see. If not, stop complaining

    Espn is right...

    For MOs or Mass Sales... (whatever you guys wanna call it), you buy if price is right for you.

    Else, simply don't buy. Simple as that !

    Even if that fella is making a profit, so what?

    You get what you want at a cheaper price and he makes some profit, it's a win-win situation isn't it?

    Uncle: You collected the battery right?

    Me: Yep.

    Uncle: Did he say will come with charger?

    Me: No.. just the batteries.

    Uncle: *gives a face*

    Me: It's quite cheap already... if a charger was included as well everyone'll be going for it.

    Uncle: At least it comes with casing.

    *walks back to escalator with me*

    Uncle: Hmph. I think he make some money out of this. If not who will do?

    Me: silence.


    It strikes me as strange how so many people like to find fault with people who organize MOs. I mean, the MO was offered, price was stated, you found the price good and went for it. No one pointed a gun at your head and forced you to join in. Even if people make some money out of it, they're still spending money and time to take a bus, sit and wait for you during collection, so what's the problem?

    And the most laughable part was, this uncle expected 4 batteries and a charger for $14.

    Willing buyer, willing seller. Even if simon is making a 100% profit off his sale to me (dun think he is ), it wouldn't trouble me one bit. As far as I'm concerned, I got a good price for something I needed. You should have told that Uncle the classic salesman line; "If you can get it so cheap, I will buy from YOU!"
