Man Accidentally Purchases Island

A Private IslandA Private Island

Rick Johnson* is a normal guy with a normal job and a normal dog, but he doesn’t have a normal home anymore. Late one evening, he was surfing through the internet and stumbled across a real estate site that allows you to make bids on privately held real estate (think mountain lairs or cloud city). While he was surfing this site, he decided that he would make a bid on his own island. Not because he’s rich though, because he’s definitely not (just ask his girlfriend). He decided to make a bid of $5,000. Now this may seem like a pretty measly sum for your own tropical paradise, and Rick thought so too, which is why he was extra shocked when his offer was accepted. “I thought it must be a joke of some kind when I first read the letter. It was also pretty interesting that it was from a Saudi Arabian Oil Sheik. I guess he just got bored with island life and decided to sell.” said Rick* when we asked him about the purchase.

As Rick* worked through the process of the purchase he stumbled across additional rules and regulations he wasn’t aware of. The Oil Sheik was quick to point out that he would only be able to accept the payment via wire transfer through Western Union. However he was kind enough to give Rick* the option of paying just $1,000 more to leave his private boat on the island as well. Rick* accepted gratefully, as he had never owned a boat before. “I’m going to name her “Red Saphire”, and we’re going to go on adventures.” says Rick*. When we asked him what kind of adventures though, he didn’t have a good answer and promptly decided we were just jealous and wouldn’t dignify the question with an answer.

We got in contact with Rick’s* sister, Margaret*, to ask her about her thoughts on Rick* owning an island.

“He did what? He bought an island? How does a man accidentally purchase an island!? Well, that’s good for him. I wasn’t really sure he would ever amount to anything, since he’s always getting scammed on the internet. Did you know that one time, he sent $500 to a total stranger, just because she said she was rich and would come marry him if he did? What a moron. Anyways, I’ll have to call and congratulate him…”

It’s great to really feel the love in this family. At the time of publishing, Rick* was still waiting for the deed to come through on his island, as well as the email that is supposed to tell him where exactly this island is, and how to get there. That lucky son of a gun, we wish we had our own personal island…

  1. something must be said for distractions and confusion often generated by a culture and society that places heavy value on fantasy and making the impossible happen. The West in particular is really big on idea of “being the exception” so people always believe they have a chance to make something happen—even if that something could destroy what good things they already possess.
