Man Tries to Sell Baby on Craigslist

A 22-year-old New York man has learned the hard way that you should never joke about a mom and her baby — he's facing charges for endangering the welfare of a child, harassment, and social service violation after posting an ad on Craigslist offering to sell the baby. Paul Marquez went on a few dates with a single mom, but when things weren't going well, she dumped him. In retaliation, he posted a Craigslist ad stating that he wanted to sell his baby, who loved to play and have fun but had asthma and was "really getting on my nerves."

To find out what the mom and Craigslist did once they found out about the ad, read the whole story on The Stir.

I think this guy needs a #don'tdatethismanchild attached to his facebook. I joke about selling my children sometimes when they get on my nerves, but I'd never do that. If you can't handle a child in a relationship, then please don't get into one with a single parent.
