Selling pokemon cards gave instant fame to a mother of 6

pokemonA mother tried to dispose off a set of Pokemon cards because her children sneaked them into the shopping cart and she ended up paying for it without her realising it. She put it up for auction on eBay and just to make sure everyone understand why she is selling them, she told her story of her shopping adventure with her 6 kids.

Probably the way she told her story and maybe other parents can relate to her experiences, her auction received more than 149,000 hits and her blog gets more than 18,000 visitors in a day. Her internet fame is peaking now.

My wife and me read through her story and were laughing all the way. Here’s a snippet.

Because I absolutely detest grocery shopping, I tend to put it off as long as possible. There comes a time, however, when you’re peering into your fridge and thinking, ‘Hmmm, what can I make with ketchup, Italian dressing, and half an onion,’ that you decide you cannot avoid going to the grocery store any longer. Before beginning this most treacherous mission, I gather all the kids together and give them “The Lecture“.

“The Lecture“ goes like this…

MOM: “We have to go to the grocery store.”
KIDS: “Whine whine whine whine whine.“

MOM: “Hey, I don’t want to go either, but it’s either that or we’re eating cream of onion-ketchup soup and drinking Italian dressing for dinner tonight.”
KIDS: “Whine whine whine whine whine.“

MOM: “Now here are the rules: do not ask me for anything, do not poke the packages of meat in the butcher section, do not test the laws of physics and try to take out the bottom can in the pyramid shaped display, do not play baseball with oranges in the produce section, and most importantly, do not try to leave your brother at the store. Again.”

OK, the kids have been briefed. Time to go.
