Daughter Auctions Father's Ghost On eBay

It's amusing some of the items that get listed on eBay. Here's an example.

A woman comforted her son's fear of his grandfather's ghost, by selling it on eBay, It had more than 34 bids!

Mary Anderson from Hobart, Australia, said she placed her father's 'ghost' on the on line auction site after her son, Collin, said he was afraid his grandfather's ghost would return someday.

With the eBay description she headed it:  This Isn't A Joke. Mary explained to bidders that she had decided to sell the ghost because of her young son Collin.

"I always thought it was just normal kid fears until a few months ago he told me why he felt scared. He told me, 'Grandpa died here, and he was mean. His ghost is still around here!'"

Mrs. Anderson didn't want to put off potential bidders so she added: "My dad was the sweetest, most caring man you'd ever meet."

She also included her father's metal walking stick in the auction, so she would have something 'solid' to send the winning bidder. The proceeds of the auction were used to buy Collin a special present,

Mary added one proviso for the winner bidder: "I would like to ask you to write a letter after you've received the cane, and the ghost, to my son, letting him know that he's there with you and you are getting along great."

  2. Very clever ploy to placate the son! Did she actually sell it to any of the bidders?
