If you ever tried to sell someone on bidding websites you know that there is no way it can end well. Also, if you put your mate on eBay for sale, your account will be suspended for being a security threat and engaging in human trafficking.
Teresa Turner, of Kings Lynn, Norfolk, didn’t become a suspected criminal when she put her husband for sale on Facebook but her plan did back fire.
Teresa, mum-of-one, got a little fed up of her hubby Rob, as he got on her nerves. She decided to “put him up for sale,” assuming that it would knock him down a peg or six but it actually did the exact opposite.
A number of women bid for him and gave him a glowing response.
“I have a 33-year-old husband who is no longer needed due to getting on my nerves,” Teresa wrote in the post. “I don’t want no money [sic] he is FREE he is house trained and toilet trained, first to collect.”
The members of the “sell it in Kings Lynn” gave him 300 reactions to the post. And it seems like the straw that broke camel’s back was Rob since he played an annoying video to her constantly that got on her nerves.
“I just found this video of a person crunching really loudly, and she told me to stop playing it,” Rob said. “I just played it to her over and over again, so she went upstairs and then I just saw this notification on Facebook saying I was for sale or something.”
He said: “She’s always telling me to do the washing up, cut the grass… she even cut up my football boots so that I wouldn’t play football.
“It was because I’d broken my leg twice though and I’m not supposed to run, so it was from a good place, really.”
Even though no one came to collect Rob, that’s okay for Teresa.
“My husband thought it was funny and still does. He’s got a great sense of humour, thankfully,” she said. “It gave a lot of people something to laugh at and it brightened up their day. I’m happy that our silly sense of humour made others laugh.”
