If you’re going to break up with your girlfriend, you’d best recover all your GPS coordinates for your secret fishing spots first, lest they fall into the wrong hands.
That’s what happened to the ex-boyfriend of Angela Potter, who got revenge for his skipping out on her by auctioning off his most prized possession.
According to stuff.co.nz, Potter was cleaning out her garage when she happened upon the GPS coordinates of her ex-boyfriend’s favorite and secret fishing holes.
“My ex-boyfriend is an avid and very successful fisherman who asked me to protect his collection of GPS fishing spot coordinates [with my life no less],” Potter wrote on a New Zealand auction site. “Not a problem.”
Not surprisingly, thousands of fishermen were keen on obtaining this valuable information of fishing spots in the Bay of Plenty and many other areas of the North Island. The auction garnered 89,688 views with a winning bid of $2,500 (USD).
“I only expected it to get 100 hits,” Potter said about the auction that occurred last year but is only now getting attention on the Internet.
Naturally, the ex was a bit miffed upon learning what happened. Potter said she wouldn’t have done it had he not packed his belongings in her suitcase, which had sentimental value, and fled to Australia.
“When he refused to return my suitcase, that’s when I sold his coordinates,” Potter said. “I didn’t list them to be vindictive. I listed them as a bit of a laugh.”
Adding to the humor is the fact her new boyfriend is also an avid fisherman, but she won’t be sharing the secret fishing holes with him out of respect for the buyer.
“I wouldn’t do that,” she said. “I’m fairly honorable in that respect.”
