A Utah woman fed up with her video game-playing husband listed him for sale on Craigslist.
“Easy to maintain, just feed and water every 3-5 hours,” read the ad on Craiglist’s “Free Stuff” section. “He enjoys eating and playing video games all day.”
Alyse Bradley posted the ad as a joke, offering her 22-year-old husband, Kyle Bradley, to the highest bidder after he became obsessed with the game “Modern Warfare,” the Logan Herald reported
Bradley’s Mother-In-Law supported the sell of her son after hearing about the 48 hour binge. Kyle, a Veteran who served in Afghanistan, told a Utah TV station that gaming is one way he stays connected to military friends.
Alyse told the same station, “”I’ve had a couple personal ads for men saying, ‘Oh I’m housebroke, I’m trained, I’ll trade him places.”
Kyle has since finished the game and did state that his wife encouraged him to purchase it.
