A man out of London decided that as a prank, he was going to put up his girlfriend on eBay and see what happens. He showed the girlfriend his idea and she was onboard with it, thinking nothing would come of it. Boy were they wrong...later that day after posting the listing earlier that morning, the couple went out to dinner and were constantly interupted by the pinging of his cellphone going off with the numerous amounts of offers he received for his "used girlfriend". The bid reached as high as $119,000 within 24 hours!
How did he pitch his "used girlfriend" on eBay? This is what he wrote in the description:
Condition: "For parts or not working. Starts OK but after that there’s a constant whining noise that I can’t seem to stop. Bodywork is fairly tidy but close up shows signs of wear. No serious damage but you can see that she’s been used."
“Please [bear] in mind when bidding she’s 37 years old. Basically first thing in the morning she can be very temperamental, once warmed up the whining noise lessens but I would be lying if I said it goes away completely. The rear end leaks a bit but nothing that can’t be plugged."
“Any offers considered…would be interested in a part exchange with a younger model. Sold as seen, no returns.”
The ad was eventually removed from the site after 24 hours but for those solid 24 hours, they had some high bids going on! The man who put his girlfriend up for bid, Dale Leeks joked around saying that while of course he wouldn't actually sell off his girlfriend, “I would have been quite sad to see [her] go, but it wouldn’t have been so sad ‘cause I would have been crying in my Ferrari or my Lamborghini.”
At least the girlfriend got a good laugh about it because not all women would be pleased if their boyfriend did this! She's a keeper!
