Wee Bay

LONDON - Jack Neal briefly became the proud owner of a pink convertible car after he managed to buy it for 9,000 pounds ($17,000) on the Internet despite being only three years old.

Jack’s mother told the BBC she had left her password for the eBay auction site in her computer and her son used the “buy it now” option to complete the purchase.

“Jack’s a whiz on the PC and just pressed all the right buttons,” Rachel Neal said.

The seller of the second-hand car, a dealer from Worcestershire, central England, was amused by the bid and agreed not to force the sale through.

“Luckily he saw the funny side and said he would re-advertise,” Neal said.

Once, when I was 6 or 7, I called a psychic hotline that was advertised on television commercials frequently. Man, was my mom pissed when the bill came in. I hung up right after they picked up, but there was still a $20.00 charge just for calling.

Mishy - Didn't you have a sibling you could blame it on?

LA, At the time my brother was about 3 or 4 years old. Mom just didn't buy that it was him. But no worries, I blamed many more things on that poor kid as we grew up.

Funny story, I had no idea they could force a sale through.

That's so funny! I would have loved it if the seller had tried to force the deal through. That would be great drama!
