She should have seen this coming.
But, Tabetha Berry, a psychic from California, tells the Wall Street Journal says she was blindsided by eBay’s decision to ban the sale of magical goods and services.
Those wishing to load up on love potions, spells and other “metaphysical goods” will want to get their bids in today — the ban takes effect Thursday.
Berry, who charges $15 for a peek into the future, said she has tried advertising her services on Craigslist, but men want more than their palms read.
“I guess I could have seen that coming,” said the far-sighted prophet.
Berry is not alone. The site lists more than 40,000 spells for sale.
Including Joe Fening, 19, who is a journalism student when he’s not communing with the dead or conjuring for hire. For the sake of my profession, I’m hoping he changes majors.
“I don’t believe in this stuff,” says Fening on WSJ.com. “I just googled a bunch of things.”
The $150 per month he made were a good “source of beer money,” he said. ”I guess my own good luck has run out.”
The San Jose, Calif., company is banning spells and such because they are a “headache.”
Turns out that customers would ask for refunds if they didn’t “win the lottery after buying a spell that promised they would, or turn into werewolves after imbibing a potion.”
Even I could have predicted that future.
