A PERENNIAL PROBLEM for parents around the country is what to do when you need to take your punishment up a notch.

It looks like a dad in Cork has solved that problem: he’s taken to DoneDeal to sell his son’s phone because of a illegitimate gaff party last Saturday night. The excellent ad tells the story:

So the young fella was left alone there Saturday night and decided to invite over some of his hormonal and greasy friends for a session. Aaaahhhh ’twas a great night by all accounts.
My son is now being labelled a “Legend” and for this reason I have taken his phone off him.

The seller is from Mallow, Cork – and has attached a very reasonable €9000 price tag to the phone

The dad lays out the two options confronting him:

Option 1 I can sell the phone to buy some wipes, dettol solution, bottles of cif and general janitorial items to clean up the mess caused by those uneducated amoebas who called to the house that night and who thought they were great shur……
Option 2 I go out the back and drop kick it over the wall

Both fair.

Finally… he sums up his sales pitch as:

Quick sale lads
