I went to a CHRISTmas party this evening and dh stayed home with the kiddos. It was going to be a boys' night of wrestling with each other! All is well until dh receives an e-mail saying:
CONGRATULATIONS! YOU ARE THE HIGH BIDDER!
Hmmmmm??? We haven't bid on anything lately...
He looks further down the e-mail to see:
You are currently the high bidder for the following eBay item
Yes, you saw that correctly!!!
|Your maximum bid:||US $6,466,557.00|
I had no idea that we were:
1. That wealthy!
2. Won the lotto!
3. or my 6yo has a side job that is making a whole lotta money!!!
Needless to say, I think he will be grounded from the computer for some time. Although it is really hilarious, isn't it?! Especially since we were able to retract the bid.
I always knew he was smart with the computer, but I guess not so much with money...because that model airplane was NOT worth quite that much money!
And you know my frugal (read cheapskate!) husband almost had a heart attack over that one! But now we're just laughing hysterically about it. Guess it also teaches daddy dearest to not leave tempting eBay windows open on his computer. Dash, however, did have to click many a button to type in bid, confirm bid, etc. Good thing he did decide to do a search on toys or something...then we'd have really been in trouble!!!
