Patience Is Not My Strongpoint

An auction on Ebay that I've been watching for the past 24 hours is about to end in 47 minutes. It's for an item that retails for $750 and the max bid right now is only $260. The item is in like-new condition and judging by the many photos, appears to be perfect aside from a small scratch in a sticker.

My plan is to swoop in with 2 minutes to go and put in a bid. I won't bid too much because I can't justify it right now, but hopefully it will be high enough to at least outdo whatever the other bidder's limit is. It's really hard not to bid early. But I must not give the other guy enough time to get an email alert and spring into action.

I think I need to take a short walk.
