PayPal sucks and men are afraid of their wives...

My wife was still asleep. I have two 580Ex II and can sell one 24-105 and probably my 1D MKIII. So, I transferred money to my personal bank account used for PayPal and pulled the trigger. Paypal refused to make the payment. Triggered a security alert given this is out of my purchasing pattern... the amount.. My bank tells me that PayPal never made the request and PayPal told me that I was out of luck. I would have to add money and wait for five days. I've never had this problem before, but this is probably my largest (attempted) EBay purchase. BTW.. Adorama customer service is only Monday-Thursday. Adorama just deletes the purchase when not paid for. Well, my wife is up now and I've nothing to explain to her. I guess that it all worked out after all. I've got at least four Canon DSLRs, a few lenses and six Canon ETTL strobes (420EX and 580EX EXII).. that I should sell first.. Then I haven't anything to explain to my wife and Canon will have a new camera out that uses their new generation sensor.. yet to be shown to the world... just thinking.

... so what's new?
