In Case You’re In The Market For One,You Can Buy A Positive Pregnancy Test On Craigslist
A girl in Buffalo took to Craigslist to sell her positive pregnancy test, and now we’re calling this a “trend.” This isn’t a trend, people. This is a couple of women taking the entrepreneurial spirit a little too far and a few media outlets picking up on it.
The girl claims that she had “been asked numerous times for a positive test” so she decided to get paid for it. I totally understand. When my friends were constantly asking me to use my fine art background to take photos of their kids, I started my own company. It’s sort of the same thing – without the bodily fluids.
A New Jersey woman saw the ad and decided she would make a go of it, too. “The lady in Buffalo New York was selling these, so I figured I would too.” In the immortal words of my grandmother, if everyone else jumps off a bridge, would you? I love those words of wisdom.
The Daily Dot is troubled thatÂ “the sellers assure they wonâ€™t ask questions and donâ€™t care what the tests are being used for.” Ha. The newest domestic danger – positive pregnancy tests. If you see something, say something.
I wasted a considerable chunk of my morning perusing random cities on Craigslist to see if I could find an ad for one of these things. I got nothing. This isn’t a trend, people. Let’s nip it in the bud before the Men’s Rights Advocates get a hold of the story, and we are left reading a laundry list of comments like this one, left on the Daily Dot story:
I would be surprised if more people hadn’t heard of this.Â It is a common scheme.Â Woman shows her boyfriend the positive test then says she needs $500 to go get an abortion — the guy is almost always MORE than willing to cough up the dough — easy $500.
Yes, it’s a common scheme. I’m really bummed I never got the memo.
