I wish they'd say what the little bastards did. :smirk:


HOUSTON (Dec. 24) - A father of three children in the Houston area has gone from playing Santa Claus to playing the Grinch.

The man decided that his children were being naughty instead of nice -- and he's taught them a lesson by auctioning their presents on the popular auction site, eBay.

The man, who asked the Houston Chronicle not to reveal his name, decided to sell off the presents because the youngsters had misbehaved. His children are nine, eleven and 15.

"Three undeserving boys have crossed the line," the eBay listing says. "Tonight we sat down and showed them what they WILL NOT get for Christmas this year. I'll be taking down the tree tomorrow."

His auction posting continues, "This isn't a scare tactic for the kids. This is the result of bad choices that can't be undone. Neither can this."

The man is offering to sell three of the wireless video game systems as well as several games.

The bidding was up to $1,025 as the auction wound down.

"Your e-mails, good and bad, are much appreciated and will be put in a scrapbook for when the boys have their own children," the man writes to those seeing his listing. "Since this has become a bit of a Christmas soapbox, we would like everyone to think about what it says about (our) society and culture when good family values and accountability are taught and it becomes worldwide news."

"My last name is not Scrooge," he adds.

That is something my father would have done. Twenty years later, I have the upmost respect for him.

It seems like the old man is making too much of a spectacle about it though.

He shouldn't tell them what the stuff is, or what he was doing with it. Just tell 'em no presents this year, and then never mention it again. Let them wonder. That way they might modify their behavior in the hope they'll eventually get the goodies. Of course, the guy should still sell the swag and spend the money on himself.

I guess swapping mom and dad's "personal lubricant" for habanero sauce was a *bad* idea after all...


Scott :lol:
