Jade Crowley of Port Talbot posted ads on Facebook selling old toys and clothes, but clearly didn’t expect to be called a “piece of garbage” for doing so. The fact is that the price of some things caused doubts in this mother, and she posted their photos in the group for evaluation.
And on Tuesday, October 15, I received a response in private messages. Jade published a screenshot of the correspondence on her own page – she was so amused by what was happening. A woman named Rose Williams added to the chat and started insulting Jade:
Is it still available? You should be terribly ashamed that you want to sell your wonderful baby. If you didn’t want her, you shouldn’t have spread your legs in front of anyone. People like you need to stitch up your perineum so you can’t give birth, you’re just a piece of garbage.
If you, like Jade, did not understand what it was all about, then this is what the product that angered Rose looks like:
Do not rush to get scared and write another angry message. The photo is just a doll, very similar to a real newborn baby. The fact is that Jade did not explain very clearly to the subscribers of the group what exactly she was selling.
She told Unilad that she did not indicate that the photo is not a real baby, because she did not think that someone could decide that.
I went on Facebook to see if they could tell me how much they would pay for it. People wrote me messages and helped with the assessment. In the original ad, I didn’t say it was a newborn doll because normal people don’t sell babies.
Here is the ad that Jade ended up putting up on a site selling used items. She listed the price and wrote that the photo showed “a newborn doll in excellent condition with a certificate of purchase.” For an unusual toy, the woman eventually decided to ask for 220 pounds (about 18 thousand rubles).
Of course, Jade explained to Rose that it was just a doll. But no apologies were forthcoming. But the post with the screenshot got almost five thousand likes, and people are delighted that it could really occur to someone that babies are being sold on Facebook.
One way or another, the woman is not offended, because what happened rather made her laugh.
I was surprised. Yes, I understand they look very realistic, and the description was not very clear, but who sells their child in a Facebook group?
According to Jade, her family also laughs at what is happening. And she looks forward to when her little daughter grows up and hears about it too.
My boyfriend James was talking to me on the phone at the time and when I told him he started laughing and then was speechless. I can’t wait until my daughter grows up and I’ll tell you how someone decided that I was trading her on Facebook.
