Woman Puts Soul up for Auction, eBay Pulls Plug
July 10th, 2012
Some people look to connect with others by joining clubs or organizations. Others end up meeting lifelong friends or the love of their lives online.
Then there are others, (okay, just one) like Lori N., who thinks that the way to connect with people is to “sell” her soul on eBay.
How she’ll manage to deliver her soul to the winner is beyond me. Unfortunately, none of us will find out how she plans to do it because eBay has since pulled the plug on the auction.
Lori’s reason for selling her soul was because she was running out of options after figuring in a car accident last year that has left her with a number of injuries that made it hard for her to find a job. So yes, it’s to raise some money but at the same time, to connect “with somebody else’s soul.”
This isn’t the first time that someone has tried to sell his or her soul on eBay. They were all cancelled, of course, for the following reason:
eBay does not allow the auctioning of human souls for the following reasons: If the soul does not exist, eBay could not allow the auctioning of the soul because there would be nothing to sell. However, if the soul does exist then, in accordance with eBay’s policy on human parts and remains, we would not allow the auctioning of human souls.
Best of luck to you, Lori. And don’t lose hope: tomorrow’s another day. And who knows? A miracle might be on its way.
