A man put his wife up for sale on eBay, not realising that his tongue-in-cheek ad was going to be taken seriously by people who would send in bids going as high as £65,000.
Simon O’Kane of Yorkshire, England, put his wife Leandra up for sale when he returned home after a tough day at the office and said his wife was nagging at him.
‘Used wife’ he titled the post, then he began.
For sale one wife.
‘Not new has been used but still got some good miles left in her.
‘Reason for selling* I’ve had my fill and feel like there HAS to be someone me (oh dear God please let there be).
‘Good points: Body work and paint work still in decent shape and has some skills in the kitchen.
‘Bad points: Often makes this noise that cannot be silenced unless you order brand new shiny parts of metal.
‘Sometimes them [sic] skills in the kitchen result in you ending up in hospital.
‘All in all not a bad model for the year, I’m sure some lucky guy will get lots of use.
‘Offers welcome, may consider a part exchange for a younger model.
‘*T&Cs: Once bought you cannot return* EVER!’
Leandra, a beauty therapist, was reportedly furious when she saw the ad. “Everyone at work saw it and were laughing their heads off. Not only did he put me up for sale but he used such a bad photo.” she said.
This guy obviously has little sense – never annoy the Mrs. eBay eventually took the ad down.
