As if we needed further proof that you can indeed find ANYTHING on Craigslist, a new trend has cropped up: women selling their positive pregnancy tests on the classified ads site.
You moms out there are kicking yourselves because YOU didn’t think of this money-making opportunity, aren’t you? Well, good thing I kept mine! Woo-hoo! (Too much information? You can tell me so on my new site: FiveYearOldPositivePregnancyTestsforSale.com.)
One post from Buffalo, New York, sums up the appeal for potential shoppers:
“Wanna get your boyfriend to finally pop the question? Play a trick on Mom, Dad or one of your friends? I really don’t care what you use it for.”
That particular test was going for the reasonable rate of $25 dollars. The tests in Texas seem to be slightly more expensive, at $30 a pop. Perhaps because of more demand from Southern ladies looking to trick their men into marrying them.
Another ad reassures buyers conscious of name brands, “This will NOT be a dollar store test. Will be either Clearblue First Response or EPT.”
PHEW. As I always say, if I’m going to buy a urine-soaked pregnancy test to play a prank on my parents, it had better be top-of-the-line.
Other possible, totally classy uses for the positive pregnancy tests include:
- Using it to make your boyfriend cough up money for “doctor’s appointments”
- Telling your wife/girlfriend that you found it in the trashcan and she has some ‘splainin’ to do.
- Having Maury Povich buy them in bulk, thus giving his show plenty of material
- Keeping it by your bedside, because who wouldn’t want to wake up to something that somebody else has peed on? (In short, a substitute for toddlers who are potty training.)
