  1. I know this is not actually for sale on Ebay, it's for sale on Craigslist but I thought i'd post it here. The description of the item for sale is very vile and I found it to be very mean but I thought certain parts of it were hilarious.

    Buy my boyfriend's creepy ex-wife's engagement ring

    Date: 2005-04-27, 12:06AM CDT

    When my boyfriend made a huge mistake and asked his creepy ex-wife to marry him, he gave her a lovely ring with a synthetic stone (they were broke).

    He told her they'd replace the diamond on their fifth anniversary, but that wasn't good enough for the creepy ex-wife. She told everyone who admired it that it was fake, and that she couldn't believe her fiance got her a fake rock.

    What a *****.

    So she secretly started shopping around for a diamond. When she found one sufficiently out of their means, she insisted that they buy it. To shut up her shrill, creepy shrieks, my boyfriend agreed. They couldn't qualify for a big enough line of credit for the creepy ex-wife's ring, so the creepy ex-wife's creepy mother cosigned for it.

    My boyfriend eventually wised up and left the creepy ex-wife, but now he's stuck with this ring (that she so magnanimously gave back, not wanting to be stuck with the payments and the 25 percent interest rate).

    Sometimes the creepy ex-mother-in-law complains about having the loan still on her credit report. Well, you should have thought of that before you co-signed for a ring for your creepy daughter, you *****.

    I don't want the ring. It has creepy associations, and anyway, I think buying expensive engagement jewelry is stupid. (No offense, Pumpkin. It wasn't your fault.)

    But it would be perfect for YOU! Don't tell your future fiancee it's a divorce ring. Just show her the appraisal papers. She'll squeal with delight and throw you on the bed and ravish you right then and there.

    This stupid ring cost $7,000 on sale when my boyfriend's creepy ex-wife insisted on buying it.

    It's appraised at over $10,000. We have the European Gemological Labrotory (EGL) report. Details are at the bottom of the ad.

    We still owe $5,500 and that's exactly what we'd like to get for it. I want it out of our lives and off our credit. If you can't afford that, make an offer anyway. Its creepy presence is pissing me off.

    E-mail us for more information at the above address.

    And before you give it to her, make sure your bride-to-be isn't creepy!

    P.S. If you don't want the creepy ex-wife's ring, then click on "best of craigslist" up there so maybe lots of people will see this and perhaps buy the creepy ex-wife's ring.

  2. oh god, who would want the creepy aura that surrounds this ring??
  3. I didn't find it weird. I found it hateful.
  4. Me too, geesh - the things people will do...

  5. [[ Hi Linda! Nice to see you! It's been a while, my friend. ]]
  6. I would say the person who wrote that listing would be someone to stay away from. I would not trust that listing for anything. It's probably totally made up. But if it's not, that poor guy really seems to find some real winners to ask to marry him, right?
  7. I think it was written in a dark-humor way to grab attention.

    Some people think if the listing is funny enough, or disturbing enough, it will grab attention and get offers going.

    And to continue playing devil's advocate with this one:

    To be honest - I am pretty confident that if my BF had an e-ring on his credit report that he was STILL paying on I would be pretty annoyed that "we" were making payments every month on a ring for the previous girl, KWIM. I guess - I can see the humor in her posting, and to be frank - if it were me, I may have wanted to supliment "creepy" for a different word (starting with the letter B).
  8. I agree that the listing sounds totally made up. They used the word creepy 200 times too many, as if they are trying to convince their audience that they really "hate" this ring and just want it gone.. STAY AWAY!
  9. ITA! And the request to add it to "best of"...def not real.
  10. The description is off putting ! Nobody will want that ring. How crazy.
  11. Who would want a ring that someone was forced to buy for a horrible woman that got them into loads of debt? Your relationship would be doomed!

    Not a good selling tactic in my opinion
  12. I don't think anyone would want to buy that ring, I'm sure all the stuff they wrote is just for "attention" but I totally agree it's not a good selling tactic.
  13. Not to mention the horrible ("creepy")woman who is selling the horrible ("creepy") woman's ring. That guy sure knows how to pick wives!! But of course it is a totally made-up listing.:P
  14. Also, if you put it on the 'best of' category, they remove all of the contact details, even the forwarding craigslist anonymous e-mail they give you, so it wouldn't increase the chances of it getting sold. But then again, the person writing the ad seems a bit unhinged, so I doubt little details like that will deter her.
