Grandma Auctioned "Best Seat in the House" on eBay

Every year for Christmas, Bev Stewart of West Yorkshire, England, faces the same quandary. Her family members always bicker over the best seat in front of her TV. But this year she has the perfect solution: auction it on eBay!

It was advertised as a "a very comfy and popular item" open to all members of the family - and Bev even offered to throw in a free cushion for those with aching backs.

After the auction involving guests and family, Bev's daughter-in-law Alexis Stewart and her 11-month-old son Mark will now be sitting pretty after trumping 17 other bids with her £13.50 winning offer.

The enterprising grandma said: "There is always arguing over who gets it, it's the perfect seat. It is straight in front of the TV and has got the coffee table at the side for you to rest your drink on and the TV remote, so everybody wants to sit there.

Did strangers bid on it? That would be VERY funny some strange guy gets the seat and all the family sits around going... what the hell grandma!

What is this family doing watching TV on Christmas when they should be spending time together, or at the very least, getting drunk? I'm an atheist whose only interest in Christmas is family, food, and alcohol, but even I know to keep it about that, and not sit numbly in front of the TV ignoring everyone.

At the very least, "grandma", the best seat in the house is hers, not only because it's her house, but because she's the eldest.

Chucklebunnies. I remember that island sold on ebay. This tops it. I think I will sell a penny covered in dog poo on e-bay. Just to see if anyone will bid.
