'This green albatross needs to go round some other poor sods neck'

Not everyone should be a parent and if you are seriously thinking about it you might want to turn away from this advert.

A particularly displeased father listed on eBay his three-wheel buggy with the words "you too can screw up your life".

The starting price on 19 January was £9.99; now it is going for over £154,000 but it still has not sold.

The amusing advert reads: "This was purchased against my wishes many years ago as I never wanted any children and a buggy signified my wife's intent to have children. We argued much and this buggy signifies everything that ended my happy, carefree, low-cost, child-free life.

"This buggy clearly meant she intended to have not just one but multiple children and the extortionate price of this buggy will stay imprinted on my brain till the day I die. I have bought cars that cost less than this buggy. My dad once bought a house that cost less than this buggy.

"Anyway as you can tell I hate the buggy. I now have 3 children, and a Labrador and am forced to endure the school run where women I don't know try and discuss the price of centre parc holidays, and the benefits of the micro over the mini micro scooter. To summarise my life is over and this green albatross needs to go round some other poor sods neck."

It continues: "This buggy has never been used for dog sledding, racing, or buggy bumper cars, although I once used it to concuss a randy Alsatian that tried getting amorous with my lab.

"There are many adverts on here for immaculate models and these people are all liars and scoundrels as nothing that comes into contact with a young child is ever immaculate.

"So for a starting price of just £9.99 you too can screw up your life. There are programs for those of you who need to recover from drugs or alcohol. Any money generated from this sale will be used to help me recover from children (and probably involve drugs and alcohol)."
