Why do people seem to get mad/angry when you outbid them?

Had a nice pair if Infinity home speakers come up today, that sold new
for about $1400 each...bidding started at $50, I got them for $115 for the pair

once I started to move them the others that were bidding and a few whom did not
seemed to be pissed at me for winning them...What gives? had just as much
right to bid as me

We tried a new approach today, had 8 total units, we did 4 whole and 4 "by the piece"
guess which brought the most?

the "by the piece" units by over 1/2 as much

You don't live up north do ya?  Seriously, I've not had that problem myself.  A few of us will rib each other but no one has gotten mad.  You either bid to win or drop out when get to your max.  I think many people that get mad are those that get hot and heavy in the bidding and hate to loose.

We have had one guy like that. Gets all up set when he does not win.

I am with Craig don't see it much down here (with the exception of noobies).

Most of the time when the bidding starts and you are friendly to the opposing bidder This saying comes up "THERE ARE NO FRIENDS AT AN AUCTION" Then there is chit chat after the bidding is over.
