A man who listed his girlfriend for sale on eBay as a prank was shocked when the bids reached over $119,000 within 24 hours. Dale Leeks “wanted to have a laugh” so he thought it would be funny to list his girlfriend, Kelly Greaves, at auction 😆
He described her condition as “for parts or not working” and wrote that she “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.
When Leeks showed the listing to Greaves, she went along with the prank, thinking no one would see it. But when the couple went to dinner that night, Leeks cell phone started going crazy. There were hundreds of bids and crude messages from interested parties around the world.
The auction was removed by eBay after 24 hours for violating the website’s policy against selling human body parts or remains, but not before being seen 81,000 times.
Over the years I’ve seen lots of unique items up for auction, but never a used girlfriend. eBay’s world famous sport bidders must have had a blast bidding on Leeks girlfriend.
Actually he is lucky that he didn’t have to pay the FVF on $119k. And he’s also lucky Greaves didn’t move him into the garage to sleep with the family dog. 😎
