eBay really does sell EVERYTHING.

June 24, 2008

A man is selling his life on eBay. We’ve all heard of the girl who wanted money for education and sold her virginity on eBay (let’s hope she comes out with a first class honours). Life, virginity, soon someone will want to sell his parents on eBay (not me, I love them =)). And I thought people just sold clothes and fake handbags on eBay. Pschtt

When people go through divorces, I can only imagine how hard it must be for them. Some move back in with parents, some get drunk, some cry everyday. But for Ian Usher, he wants to leave Australia and sell his life there to some idiot who would pay millions for 15 minutes of fame.

So, what’s up for sale in Ian Usher’s life? Apparently everything; his house, his car, his motorbike, his bicycle, everything inside his house (TV, computer, kitchen utensils, his whole wardrobe, couch, rug), his FRIENDS (wonder how much I’d get for Sofia hehe), his JOB!! My god, this guy really hates his life. Oh wow, he has a relaxing spa in his house. Maybe I should bid. His house does have a nice view. Oh wait, he’s 5’10”, I won’t fit into his clothes.

In his website, he wrote: “However, I am still not sure whether this is inspired madness, complete foolishness, or just some sort of mid-life crisis. Whatever it is, it’s all going up for sale in one big auction. Everything I have and everything I am.”  Well, you better be sure what it is, Ian Usher!!

Anyway the bid is currently at RM1 million. One person wrote “Oh, do you have a dog to go with the house? Or a goldfish? I’d really like that.” What a joke! You have RM1 million for god’s sake, buy a freaking goldfish.

In his listing, “Will arrange for local pickup only (no postage).” I bet workers at the post office are rolling off their seats laughing at the joke-of-the-year.

What is with these kind of people giving up on life like that?? Time gets a little rough, they run away from problems and “start a new life”. Why don’t you fix the one you already have, and not screw up another one! Oh well, easier said than done, who knows what he’s going through. I guess he does look and sound like a nice guy, if not a little creepy. Despite my personal criticisms, I do hope he manages to sell his life (he has a reserve price). Can you imagine otherwise? He’d be known as the guy who couldn’t sell his life on eBay. Oh god, he already hates his life, who knows what else he’s not scared to let go.
