so, you work in an office. you deal with a sales staff. sometimes they try to butter you up with gifts.
if you’re anything like my mother, you thank the sales guy, and immediately hand off any gift at all to your staff. you give these things away to others.
or, if you like books, and you’re given books to read as part of your job, you keep them for yourself, garage-sale/used-bookstore-sale-them them later, or donate to a library.
why would you auction such a gift on e-bay?
seems a touch tacky, no?
people of the interweb, i respectfully request that you refrain from bidding on this.
if i can win this auction, i shall run a contest for all of you, and I will give this book to the winner free of cost.
