We all know what it's like to have a commitment that you desperately want to avoid however one person has trumped everyone by posting an ad requesting a positive coronavirus test to fake having the virus to avoid a "thing".
The shocking ad was reposted by the Depop-themed meme account @depoprama on Twitter and it has since received a huge reaction on social media. The person's account name has been blacked-out to retain their privacy, with the rest of the ad still visible.
"I have a thing coming up that I very much would like not to attend so naturally I'm trying to fake having covid pls hmu if you have the NHS positive text thing or a picture of a positive result," they said.
They explained how dismal their situation is by stating that if they were unable to buy a positive coronavirus test they would have to resort to "licking the poles on the District Line". Although we have no idea what the person is trying to avoid, nothing should ever come to licking poles on the Tube.
The ad continues: "To prevent me from catching many more diseases than coronavirus the former would be much appreciated!!"
The ad was reposted on Instagram where the unnamed Depop user received both praise and criticism for their request. "I swear this generation will do anything other than actually confront our problems," on user wrote.
A second commenter joked: "Hun just draw a line or something."
Another person quipped: "That's two weeks off work right there"
While a fourth gave quite a simple and reasonable response aimed at the person who posted the ad. "Just say you don't wanna go."
Hopefully they'll find a better way to deal with their commitment without having to buy a positive coronavirus test.
When asked about the ad, Depop said: "All medical devices and healthcare products are prohibited for sale on Depop. This listing was removed by our Trust & Safety team and no items were bought or sold."
