Aussie Bloke Tries To Sell Ex-Wife’s Wedding Dress For Fishing Gear And Beer
Getting rid of mementos from past relationships can sometimes be an emotional experience. The mere sight of seeing a photo or piece of clothing can spark feelings of regret or unhappiness.
But not for Scott.
This legend has decided that his ex-wife's wedding dress is taking up too much room in his place and he'd rather go fishing and enjoy a few cold ones - so he's posted an advert on a Facebook page for people in Darwin looking to buy, swap or sell various items.
Scott is selling the dress for $200, which is a steal considering he paid ten times that much initially. According to NT News, the post reads: "I was actually going to have a dress burning party when the divorce became final, but then thought some lucky bloke would be glad to pay only $200 instead of $2000 for a dress.
"The dress cost about $2000 that my ex-father-in-law swore up and down he would pay for, but didn't, so I got stuck with the bill - luckily I only got stuck with his daughter for eight years.
"I think it's funny that one picture makes it look like the chest plate off an Imperial Storm Trooper. Personally, I think it looks like a $2000 shower curtain, but what do I know about this?"
But he saved his best moment for last when making the final sell to potential buyers: "Ladies, you won't regret this. You may regret the dude you marry, but not the dress."
It's not the worst way to claw back some funds after splashing out on a wedding that didn't end happily ever after. But it seems like Scott isn't the only one looking to get rid of old memories.
Dan Campbell posted a savage ad on Gumtree after his mate's marriage ended because the wife was allegedly cheating. The hilarious ad reads: "Wedding Dress for Bride Seeking Eventual Infidelity."
It adds: "Due to be married soon? Not planning on staying faithful? Want to sleep with one of your soon-to-be husband's closest friends? Then THIS is the wedding dress for you!
"This stunning, tuille swathed, ivory bridal gown has a proven track record of producing an adulterous, deceitful, double-crossing and traitorous soulmate.
"A one of a kind garment designed by Benedict Arnold, believed to be derived from the very cloth Judas Iscariot himself wore to the Garden of Gethsemane to betray the only son of God - Jesus Christ."
Well, hell hath no fury like a woman (or man) scorned.
Hopefully these guys either got managed to get some closure, or got enough cash to go fishing and get some beer.
