How can something be so funny and so sad at the same time?

A former Ford engineer who was left behind when the company announced its “Way Forward” plan resorted to posting an eBay auction for his Dual Alarm Clock that he won’t be needing anymore. Though the wake-up device helped the man earn four Perfect Attendance awards during the seven years he was with the company, his days are now filled with watching The Price is Right and visiting the tanning salon, which doesn’t require waking up to a buzzer.

The auction ended February 8th with 83 bids having been made, the largest of which was an impressive $152.50. While that may not be enough to buy healthcare, at least this guy’s tan will be a healthy bronze.
