Brutally honest eBay post for wedding dress prompts surprising outcome
LONDON — Finding out the love of your life has cheated on you is one thing. But then having to foot the bill for the divorce? Well, that's a whole other level of awfulness.
This is the terrible situation Samantha Wragg of Chesterfield, UK, is facing. And she's taken to eBay to sell her wedding dress. The product description of her ivory Art Deco dress is likely the darkest one to ever grace the site.
"Great condition but needs dry cleaning before wearing to get rid of the stench of betrayal," reads the product's description.
"If you want a dress that is full of bad memories and shattered hopes and dreams then this is the one for you," it continues.
Wragg apologized for the lack of photos of the dress, admitting that when she found out her husband was living with another woman, she burned and permanently deleted everything with his "disgusting" face on it.
"I didn't have time to get it dry-cleaned myself before my cheating scumbag of a husband decided to call an end to our marriage," wrote Wragg. "It cost my poor parents around £2,000 ($2,629) brand new in 2014."
While her dress might have originally cost £2,000, it's looking like Wragg is set to make one mighty profit from her misfortune. The dress has already reached almost £66,000 ($86,817) in bids, which might be pretty useful for Wragg's divorce bills.
"If you've got any questions — either about the dress or the skank that my husband ran off with — then please feel free to contact me," Wragg continued.
Here's hoping the dress brings someone else some happiness...
