There is some weird stuff on eBay. But if you were looking through it last week then you may have seen one of the weirdest things in a long time. A woman selling herself, but not in THAT way.
This 49-year-old mum-of-two Lois Curtis, put herself up for sale on the website, hoping that a ‘rugged gorgeous Greek guy’ would snap her up. Brilliant.
In the ad, Lois describes herself as ‘used, but in pretty good condition’, with ‘good bodywork and a sense of fun’ adding ‘cooks and cleans, no warranty.. fuses have been known to blow’.
Despite receiving bids of up to £205, Lois removed the listing, as she had been bought by her Greek hunk.
I want to go live in Greece, it’s always been a dream. So my friend Apostolos, who lives over there, said “Put yourself on eBay and I will share the link all over Greece”. He has loads of friends so we just thought we would see what happened and see whether anyone was interested, just for a bit of fun.
Despite taking herself off the bidding site, she is still getting enquiries:
Since I’ve taken it down, I’ve had about six or seven people email me, asking if they can still bid. I don’t even know how they managed to get in touch. One was from America and said he had his credit card number ready and could he make a bid.
There’s another guy that’s constantly emailing me – I don’t know where he’s even from.
She hasn’t written off the idea completely though, and may consider relisting herself in the future, with the specification of a Greek buyer.
She should probably try actually going there and meeting somebody, to be fair.
