Man's life for sale on Ebay!

IMAGE:Ebay life searchHas anyone ever told you to "get a life"?
Well where does a person purchase such an item? Ebay of course.

This is the story of 44-year-old Ian Usher who is selling off everything he owns in one big 'life package', as he wants to raise some cash for a life-changing adventure after the break down of his marriage.

Mr Usher emigrated to Australia six years ago from Britain. He is hoping to raise around $400,000 (£185,000) to enable him to start a new life elsewhere.
The 'life package' includes everything he owns in Australia including a car, a motorcycle, several surf boards, his open-planned house with spa, and even his job.

Yes that's right, he has arranged it with his (current) employer at a carpet store in Perth. His employer has agreed to take on whoever wins the auction on a two-week trial with a view to permanent employment.

Mr Usher is said to want to leave Australia with the money in one hand and his passport in the other.
