For Sale - Nagging Wife (London)

LONDON (AFP) – A British man fed up with his wife's complaints advertised her for sale -- and got a number of offers.
"Nagging Wife. No Tax, No MOT. Very high maintenance -- some rust," wrote Gary Bates, 38, in a small ad in Trade-It, more usually used to buy and sell cars or household goods.
Bates, a self-employed builder from Gloucestershire, southwest England, snapped after his wife Donna on got on his nerves while she was watching television and decided to place the ad as a joke.
"She was nagging me for doing something small, while she was watching some rubbish on TV. So I just thought I'd put an ad in to get rid of her.
"I didn't think anyone would ring up but I've had at least nine or 10 people calling about her. It's gone mad. There was no one I knew -- just people asking, 'Is she still available?'"
The couple only married last year, and Bates said his 40-year-old wife -- whom he advertised in the magazine's Free to Collect section, along with some of his fishing tackle -- initially gave him "a bit of an ear-bashing."
But he said: "She's seen the funny side of it now though!"

Nope. I called the guy and she's already taken. It would have been so nice to always walk in the garage and it be clean with a plate of bacon waiting.

They're in London so I assume if she cooks it would be British food. Nasty slimy boiled everything...yeesh.

So, how is Aussie food?
Btw, I can hardly tell you have any accent at all.

Aussie food is lots of bbq's & roast lamb, chicken, pork, not quite as fattening as in the US, your American food is very good but I put on 20 lb unfortunately, guess it could be that I am a pig also, ha!
Well I do have a bloody accent, but it's all good mate.
