Alyse Bradley got so fed up with her husband’s video game obsession that she decided to take matters into her own hands and offer her husband to the highest bidder via Craigslist.
“Easy to maintain, just feed and water every 3-5 hours,” reads Bradley’s ad on the popular website.
The 22-year-old Utah woman posted the ad following a 48-hour gaming binge.
Her military husband Kyle Bradley recently returned from Afghanistan with a back injury and has been glued to the controller ever since.
Apparently, the gaming obsession took a turn for the worse when Kyle purchased the newly released “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.”
Alyse decided that the only way she could pull her husband away from the video game was to advertise him online.
“I am selling my 22-year-old husband. He enjoys eating and playing video games all day,” Alyse wrote.
“If acceptable replacement is offered will trade,” she added.
One person responded to the add offering a blue bag of Skittles in exchange for the video-gaming husband. Others have responded suggesting that the couple seek marital counseling.
However, Alyse has admitted that the advertisement was all in good fun and said, “I didn’t ever think anyone would reply to this, but it’s gotten so much attention.”
Kyle does not seem too shaken up by the ad.
He told The Salt Lake Tribune, “I love my wife.”
“She supported me when I got the game … it’s just funny,” he said.
