Dad sells son's 90-dollar video game online for more than 9000


MONTREAL (AFP) - After catching his 15-year-old smoking pot, a father sold the hard-to-get "Guitar Hero III" video game he bought his son for 90 dollars for Christmas at an online auction, fetching 9,000 dollars.

The sale took place after the father spent two weeks searching for the video game for the Nintendo Wii gameboard.

"So I was so relieved in that I had finally got the Holy Grail of Christmas presents pretty much just in the nick of time. I couldn't wait to spread the jubilance to my son," the father wrote on the eBay website.

"Then, yesterday, I came home from work early and what do I find? My innocent little boy smoking pot in the back yard with two of his delinquent friends."

The man, a school teacher, who kept his identity private, said he sold the coveted video game to punish his son and discourage him from smoking dope.

The sale was a boon for the family's bank account, since the game the father purchased for 90 dollars (US) was finally sold to an Australian who plunked down 9,100 dollars for it.

The naughty son, however, will not go without a present on Christmas.

"I am still considering getting him a game for his Nintendo. Maybe something like Barbie as the Island Princess or Dancing with the Stars ... I know he will just love them," the father said, tongue-in-cheek.

Applause Wow... I'm all the way with the Dad on this one! LOL
I can't believe that guy paid that amount of cash for that game... people are a little nuts sometimes....
I think if we were to sell the Nintendo Wii, we would get a couple thousand dollars ... those things have dissappeared from every store I know of grinsmiley

yea, people are a little nuts! If I did have an extra 9,000 dollars to spare, I sure wouldn't spend it on THAT!

I can't believe that people can't wait for stuff like that. There is no way I would fork over that kind of cash, when, with a little patience, eventually you will have one of your very own.

But I do agree that the father did the right thing. Hopefully it made a difference for his son.

Me too. Thumbsup It's a greedy society we live it, isn't it? But it's parents like this that give us all hope.

I agree too. It's outrageous how much money people will spend for some things.
