Guy Lists “Used Girlfriend” On eBay

A guy thought he had played the perfect practical joke on his girlfriend by putting her up for sale as a “used girlfriend” on eBay. But it backfired once he started receiving bids exceeding $90-thousand.

Dale Leeks posted a picture of his “used girlfriend” Kelly Greaves on eBay in the United Kingdom, listing her condition as “for parts or not working” citing a “constant whining noise.” For an extra jab, he described her as “fairly tidy but close up shows signs of wear.” He and his girlfriend had a laugh about the prank, with the girlfriend thinking no one would see it – that is, until he started getting offers.

First, Leeks was just getting bids and messages on eBay from amused friends who had seen the prank. But soon, he was getting very real bids from around the world for thousands of dollars.
