There are two ways to look at a bad relationship – the serious way, admitting that your soul has been raked over hot coals and subsequently let it ruin your life by coloring every subsequent relationship afterwards… or just laugh, ironically, and with much acid.
Kudos to a Craigslist user in Pocono for bringing humor into an otherwise dark subject, selling an engagement ring. “The ring is in like new condition, only worn for a short period of time by Satan herself,” he says.
So as not to mislead innocent buyers he very courteously puts a disclosure on his listing saying “ring may be cursed as it tends to leave a path of destruction behind it. Possible events associated with this ring include but are not limited to: damage sustained to house, vehicle, heart, downed powerlines, fallen trees, and swarms of locus.” Um… good to know.
Don’t feel too bad by not purchasing this ring with a jaded past. The seller already has plans if no one buys it by Christmas. “If not sold by Christmas I plan to throw it into the fires of Mordor.”
I hope he has better luck next time…!
