Source 1 – Perth man auctions ‘life’ on eBay

March 18, 2008 – 3:51PM

A man in Australia is auctioning his life – his house, his job, his clothes and his friends – on eBay, after his marriage broke up, saying he wants to start a new life.

“It’s time to move. A completely fresh start. I want to see where life takes me,” Ian Usher, 44, told Australian television on Tuesday from Perth in Western Australia state.

Usher said he was auctioning his life as “a package” with his house in Perth valued at around $420,000.

“Hi there, my name is Ian Usher, and I have had enough of my life! I don’t want it any more! You can have it if you like!,” reads his Web site http://www.alife4sale.com, which has a link to eBay for bidders.

Usher said his life auction, which starts on June 22, included not only his house, a car, a motorbike, a jet ski and a spa, but also an introduction to “great friends” and a job at a rug shop in Perth for a trial two-week period.

“When it’s over, I will just walk out the front door, take my wallet, my passport and start a new life,” he said.

Usher said his ex-wife had heard of his auction.

“Her last comment was, ‘it seems a bit mental to me’,” he said.

“My life here is absolutely fantastic,” said Mr Usher, who is originally from Darlington and became an Australian citizen in 2006.

“But I just want to make a clean break and start again, so I am selling everything lock, stock and barrel, from the contents of my wardrobe to my kettle, and from my cutlery to my car.

“Laura and I chose the house together and intended it to be our family home. Despite my life being busy and fulfilled, I still miss my wife so much. Everything around me is simply a reminder of the wonderful past we shared.”

Mr Usher, who lived in Scarborough during the 1990s, will also provide the person who buys his life access to all his friends and details of his favourite bars, restaurants and places to go.

The auction winner will even be given a fortnight’s trial with his employer, Jenny Jones, who owns a Perth rug store.

The bidding opens on June 22 and lasts for seven days, but potential bidders can get an advance preview of his life on a website complete with blogs and videos detailing exactly what is up for grabs.

Mr Usher said the idea came from one of his friends, who after a bad day, came up with the idea of selling his life as a job-lot by advertising in The Sunday Times. Although his friend never went through with the idea, Mr Usher always remembered it.

“My aim is to walk away at the end of the eBay auction with my wallet in one pocket and my passport in the other, go to the airport and just jump on the first available plane to anywhere,” he said.

“My tale is a bit of a sad one, but I am not trying to sell anyone a sob story. I appreciate that many people have had to cope with much more than I have and have had much more sadness in their lives.

“This is just my way of dealing with what has happened to me.”
