Husband tries to sell wife.
I read the following article this morning and immediately my thoughts turned to Medbh, which is not as strange as it sounds. Seriously, had I not a phone phobia I would have run her up to share this with her.
Dear Paul Osborn, if you suspect your wife is cheating on you, either deal with it or leave her. Offering her up for 'sale' is complete and utter bollocks. Not saying a cheating wife is classy either, but she's not property to be bought and sold. Hard as it might be to get your head around, there it is. repeat, not property.
From classy paper, The Sun.
"A JEALOUS husband who suspected his wife of an affair took revenge – by putting her for sale on eBay.
Paul Osborn, 44, kicked out wife Sharon and advertised her on the internet auction site – with bids hitting £500,100.
It offered his “cheating, lying, adulterous slag of a wife” to the highest bidder – and became an internet phenomenon, with users forwarding the link worldwide. But Sharon, 43, denies an affair and cops are now investigating Paul for harassment.
MoT inspector Paul heard rumours in March that Network Rail manager Sharon, his wife of 24 years, was having an affair with a man at work.
Paul said: “In a fit of rage I put the advert on eBay. I later took it off because I realised it wasn’t the right thing to do. I was just so angry.”
Sharon and her colleague made a police complaint against Paul. Neither was available for comment last night. But the unnamed man’s wife said at home in Hemel Hempstead, Herts: “There’s nothing going on. They work in the same office, that’s all.”
Thames Valley Police confirmed it was investigating, saying: “Statements have been taken from two people. ”
See? Even revenge can be sexist.
