Aussie Man Sets Up Posters Asking To Call Ex-Girlfriend And Give Their Best Wookie Impersonation
| Last updated
A Queensland woman is growing frustrated after her ex-boyfriend set up a bunch of posters around her local area with her phone number on it.
The posters asked people to call Jessica and give their best Wookie impersonation.
Everyone has their own way of dealing with the breakdown of a relationship, but this is certainly a new one.
Jessica dumped the bloke when she saw him messaging people on Facebook. Oh, he also dumped a car with no wheels on her driveway to block her in. But the icing on the cake was advertising her phone number on posters everywhere that they could win AUD$100 for the best Chewbacca impression.
That was two weeks ago, and there have been plenty of 'applicants' since then.
While some of the messages have been funny, the 29-year-old woman has received calls night and day for a fortnight.
She told 9News: "I'm getting phone calls at really strange hours of the night about one o'clock to about four o'clock, aye. I thought it was quite funny actually, I thought it was a good joke."
Their three-year relationship came to an end when Jessica logged into the man's Facebook account to discover that he'd been sending inappropriate messages to other blokes whilst he was supposed to be with her.
In response, he posted bills around town advertising a 'Chewbacca roar contest' with a prize for the best impression.
Jessica has asked anyone who sees the posters to pull them down, but if they feel like making an entry, that's fine too.
She continued: "Just pull [the posters] down please and yeah, have a laugh for me and if you want to make a phone call, go for it. I don't mind, bring it on!"
It's taken her a while to adopt this stance, however. She admitted that at the beginning the calls were distressing for her and her children - some of them were taking place in the middle of the night, waking up her kids.
Jessica told Cairns Post: "Someone called and said they thought it might have been done as a joke because they watched [a man] put up the poster. It hurts my feelings. I thought when we first met he was mature, but it just goes to show having a job doesn't mean you're mature."
As for the car, which he left outside her house with no wheels so she couldn't move it, she explained: "The police got in contact with me and finally they're going to do something about it."
