911Last week, a man from England called the police to complain about the appearance of his prostitute.  According to msn.com, he told the cops that “he had arranged to meet a prostitute outside a hotel and he did not like the look of her. He said she made herself out to be better than she was."  He asked the police to take legal action against her for "breaching the Sale of Goods act."

The Sale of Goods Act

In a nutshell, The Sale of Goods Act gives consumers certain legal rights when the purchased goods are not of satisfactory quality.  Under the rule, the goods must be fit for a particular purpose and must match the seller's description.

I guess this man doesn’t know that better-quality goods come with a price.  He should probably consider paying more money to receive finer “goods” next time.  If that doesn’t work, he can file a complaint with the consumer protection agency.  After all, in his opinion, the prostitute is simply a “good.”

In England, prostitution or the exchange of sex for money is not illegal, but I can’t help but wonder if this man was serious when he contacted the police.  In my opinion, this sounds like a joke and he should be fined for wasting the police officers time.  Nevertheless, it was an interesting story to read.
