Good scam

she has neglected to mention that the ex is a skinflint who never spent more than a fiver on anything. I wonder was there any other gobs smacked.

Suspicious?

Sounds very suspicious, given that there is another similar auction elsewhere: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/6-SECRET-SANTA-UNWANTED-UNOPENED-XMAS-PRESENT-GIFT_W0QQitemZ230416939980QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Women_s_Underwear_Design_2?hash=item35a5eb7bcc

Also from Huddersfield, also in the garish pink extra large all-capitals font.

Maybe

He dumped her because she couldn't figure out how to turn the caps lock key off.

That would drive me insane.

And your point?

Re: Point

'Size 16' not really fitting with a description of 'little', perhaps?

Give him a break

He had to buy presents for all the special women in his life.

malicious gossip

Hmm. I wonder if said coworker was simply making a play? Did she actually confront the two-timing boyfriend, or did she just dump him?

Hmmm...

So they split up on the 22nd, so how comes she has the presents he bought for her?

Sounds a bit odd to me too...

Plus technically if he bought them, and never gave them to her, then they are not hers to sell... Aka theft.

The best thing about this

To me, the best thing about this is the promise to donate the proceeds of the auction to charity. Clearly she's not trying to profit from the breakup. Paris, because she understands the right way to make this kind of gesture.

sad

that people still can´t stop cheating on each other. hope the lass has a strong heart, certainly appears to have spirit. kind of her to turn her loss into something positive for another.

Funny

But I see almost this exact auction several times around Christmas after all....

Ergo it's almost certainly a scam!

Spelling

Why is it that so many people don't know how to spell "definitely"?

How....

does she know what is in two of the gifts??

Has she been peeking??

I used to know some girls from the Huddersfield area, they have very strange names up there; the three I knew were called Cowpat, Piglet and Countrymouse..

Paris, cos that is how I imagine Piglet looks these days :-)

I don't believe that the human species is intended to be monogamous - or at least the male isn't at any rate.

Consider this analogy...

A man walks into a sweet shop.

He looks around, admiring all the lovely different sweets.

He picks up just one. To be fair, it is a nice one - the purple one from Quality Street.

And then he goes and says, "you know what? I only _ever_ want to eat the purple ones from Quality Street for the rest of my life. I won't ever let another sweet past my lips. Not even the purple one from a box of Roses - even though it's very similar and could easily be mistaken for the one from Quality Street. I'll be very careful when I'm drunk."

Now, come on. Does this sound like the sort of thing any right-thinking bloke would say?

Female readers may ignore the following question. Which do you prefer: sweets or sex?

The vast majority of people do not restrict themselves to one type of sweet, so why do it for something as important as sex?

Paris... because she doesn't believe in the one-sweet-for-life deal either.

Re: "Which do you prefer: sweets or sex?"

I think your question posed to women would actually prove your point further.

Given that the female answer is invariably "Sweets", blokes have a damn good reason to go looking for the other wherever they can get it.

Paris: Coz I'd cheat on her too if she put her sweets before my plums. :0)

Perhaps not - there is no denying certain animal instincts are still present in modern man.

But as the evolved species man should be wiser. Naive? perhaps.
