AIBU to be annoyed by this

i sold a practically brand new next coat for 99p due to accidently listing it for starting bid of 99p plus 2.60 postage (i was going to start it at £3 plus postage so not lost a fortune). DS had only worn it about once maybe twice, it had been bought in the sale and it hadn't fit him at the right time. Anyway buyer emailed me to ask if i had any washing instructions as they weren't included in the coat i emailed back and said i wasn't sure but i would imagine it should be washed at 40 (as everything seems to be these days). Anyway they have left me positive feedback but said 'shame there were no washing instructions'. FFS you have got a next coat that would have cost you approx £25-£30 if bought brand new, with no wear to it. As its postive feedback i'm guessing i shouldn't leave a comment in reply

Erm, washing instructions are on the label sewn into the side seam. They've bought the coat, shame they can't grab a few brain cells while they're at it hmm

As long as they didn't hit your star ratings I wouldn't care what they said.

This is one of the great eBay mysteries as I see it.

Someone goes mad bidding and pays £20 for a used Primark top that cost around £6 new and they are invariably ecstatically happy with it, leave glowing feedback.

Someone pays 99p for a BNWT designer item, absolute bargain of the century and they will somehow find fault with it.
