The eBay Note I came back to my desk after 3.5 hours of meetings and presentations to find the following on a post-it note stuck to my laptop:

Dear Jeremy,
We came by the do a leveraged buyout of your underpants. But you weren't here. Sorry! Talk soon.
Your Friends @ eBay

I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad that I was not around.

The fun part is seeing if one of my eBay friends takes responsibility of this as a result of reading it on my blog. If not, I'll just have to ping everyone I know at eBay. :-)

Fascinating. I wonder how much (or shall I say how little) those things would go for on ebay. ;)

If they want your underpants now, what else will they want?

Evil. :)

I thought eBay was already profitable?

Are they returning to the canonical dot com business plan?

I am here to say that it isn't every day that a man receives an offer for a leveraged buyout of his underpants, so I hope you're appreciating this.

And most importantly - you're in meetings and presos for over 3 hours and you leave your laptop in your cube??
