A brutally honest ad for a buggy attracts £154,000 in eBay bids

A father of three has advertised an unwanted pushchair, or ‘green monster’ as he calls it, with a brutally honest write-up. 

In the ad, he claims the buggy has soaked up ‘pretty much every bodily fluid’ and ‘ended his happy care-free low-cost child free life.’

He writes that he never wanted children and when his wife bought the buggy, against his wishes, he says it signified his wife’s intent to have children, which started his decent into parenthood, and misery.

We have to hope this is all written with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek.

The now father of three, Joel Andresier from Southampton writes:

“As you can tell, I hate the buggy. I now have three children and a labrador and am forced to endure the school run where women I don't know try and discuss the price of Center Parc holidays and the benefits of the micro over the mini micro scooter. To summarise, my life is over and this green albatross needs to go around some other poor sod's neck.

"On the positive none of my three children were stupidly fat but it's been driven by my wife a lot so not all good.”

The buggy now has reached over £154,000 in eBay bids, surprisingly, but this may be down to the fact that the bidders feel the need to buy this man a drink, as the ad states where the proceeds will go.

He said: "Any money generated from this sale will be used to help me recover from children (and probably involve drugs and alcohol)."
