Canadian woman sells “cheating” husband’s possessions

A woman from White Rock, near Vancouver in Canada, sold her husband’s possessions via a listing on classified advertising website Craigslist while he was away for the weekend with his “floozie”.

The unnamed woman announced a “lying cheating sale” last weekend, saying she “wanted the house empty on Monday because that will be a shock for him to see”. She offered red leather reclining sofas, tools that he “didn’t have a clue how to use” and even a “brand new sliding glass door that he never got installed”.

The listing announced:

“Last minute spontaneous estate sale. Husband left us for a piece of trash……selling everything and moving house after 1o years of marriage…”

The woman also offered visitors to the sale the chance to view the former couple’s home, which was going up for the sale the following week.

Bargain hunters were warned not to arrive too early as she would be “thoroughly enjoying some wine” with her girlfriends the evening before, “as we clean out all his stuff”.

“Please speak softly to the ladies wearing the sunglasses”, she added.

The woman signed off by noting: “Life is too short to waste time. God put my eyes in front of my head for a reason. I am looking forward to moving forward!”

A local lawyer told newspaper The Province that proceeds from the garage sale would have to be included in the marital assets to be divided by the divorce courts.

This is a great novel waiting to happen. Or a movie. I’d love to have been a fly on the wall from the vows at the altar to the garage sale. How did stuff go so wrong? This reminds me of that McMillan novel in which the scorned wife burns her cheating husband’s wardrobe in broad daylight.
