Deal of the decade on ebay

Check out this link:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=2192&item=4556985749&rd=1 [Broken]

Look at the price and read the sellers blurb below the item details

Do I detect a slight marital dispute here? :rolleyes:

I read an urban legend like this ages ago.

The man had left his wife for another woman, and gone to live abroad. He told her to sell all his posessions and send him the proceeds. She sold his Porsche for £20, and sent him a cheque...

To a true car lover, this woman is almost in the same class as Lorena Bobbitt. :eek:
 
You know, the deal got snapped up in five minutes. I wonder what the chances are that the buyer actually lives close enough to pick up the car... and I wonder what the woman will do if he doesn't. What can she legally do?

Also, why would the car be in her name if her husband loved it so much that selling it would be a way to get back at him?

Cos it's more expensive to insure a car if you're a 'he' than if you're a 'she', perhaps?

She's really stupid. If she really owned it, she could have driven it into any car dealer and sold it on the spot and at least made some money.

No, she understands a guy's Psyche Evo..

Sellling it for a decent price would be bad, but selling a petrol-head's pride and joy for 50p would hurt oh so much... The humiliation!! The shame!!
:cry: :cry:

It would be absolutely unbearable...

Oh, geez, I didn't even notice the selling price! That is stupid. If it's in her name, he couldn't take it with him when she kicked him out anyway. She could have even just driven it and parked it away from the house so he couldn't try. She could have used the profit to pay the divorce lawyer. But what a deal for the person who got the car!

I think that was the point. He's gonna be even more pissed off that she didn't even make any money out of it.
 
that's gonna be a bad fight when he gets home...

Hmm... that would be a fantastic way to get rid of an old broken car. She's given no specifics, and not actually said whether the thing works or not. Sell the thing for 50p, and then the new owner would have to pay to have it towed away :biggrin:
 
It amazes me, the things that are sold on E-bay. On one hand you have the above and on the other you have this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=1469&item=5591163987&rd=1 [Broken]

So they allow this nut case to go on for a week, but they shut down the guy selling the "entire universe"? What gives? :mad:

And what's up with this? Isn't this basically just a lottery and therefore illegal?

Edit: I see that the seller has added this disclaimer: "This auction is for the stuffed squirrel ONLY. As a free gift I will be including cash to fill his belly with. This is not a lottery, raffle, or gimmick and complies with all of ebay's rules and regulations." What a joke. :rolleyes:
