STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — A Castleton Corners man was so annoyed that his potential love interest’s newborn daughter was taking up too much of her time that he decided to post an ad selling the baby on Craigslist, police allege. Paul Marquez, 22, posted the ad twice on the website’s “baby+kids” section, according to law enforcement sources, set the price at $100, and gave out the mother’s number to a possible buyer who contacted him. The first ad, posted on July 29, was flagged by Craigslist and taken down, but the second, posted a day later, stayed online longer, sources said. ”Heyy I have a 2 month old baby name [redacted] she loves to play nd have her little fun but there is only 1 problem, the doctor said that she has asthma nd if she turns a certain way she can stop breathing, she’s really getting on my nerves nd I don’t want her Please email me,” Marquez wrote, according to sources.
Not like I have any kids or anything, but I totally get where this dude is coming from. It used to just be him and his girl with no distractions and all the freedom in the world. We’re talking blowjobs on the reg, sex on the reg, other cool stuff on the reg. Life was a playground so to speak. And then here comes this baby, just sucking up everyone’s time and resources and putting an end to your blowjob quota. See that’s no good. That’s what we call a regression of pleasures. So what’s there to do? Well there’s selling the infant on the internet, that’s what there’s to do.
Now I like the fact that he used Craigslist instead of eBay or any other site. You need the sketchiness of CL when you’re dabbling in the flesh trade. But what I don’t understand is why he was only asking for $100. Bro that’s a baby you got there. Shit is valuable. Like I know you want to kick it out the window and all, but there are people who would pay good money for that burden. At least a thousand bucks. I’m not sure how much the asthma hurts the retail value, but I do know that $100 is way too low of a starting price. C’mon, you’re selling a baby here. I get that you wanna dump him off on someone as fast as possible, but $100? Dude, don’t be stupid.
