Internet is a funny space. It keeps us engaged, entertained and sometimes irritated but living without it seems equally impossible. Everything that happens in real world makes it way online, from news to shopping and views to polls. So much so that a man from Yorkshire decide to put his wife ‘for sale’ on eBay.
The incident, all in good humor was just a bickering between the couple. The notorious husband in question Simon O’Kane was apparently upset with his wide for she didn’t show enough sympathy towards him when he was unwell. So, he went ahead and posted her on sale, also adding ‘Offers welcome, may consider a part exchange for a younger model.’
The advertisement titled ‘Used wife’ was an elaborate one with him explaining both the good and bad points of the ‘product’.
His wifey, Leandra however was embarrassed as soon as she found out about the post.
“I was absolutely fuming – I wanted to kill him. 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. He always moans he’s poorly, he’s a hypochondriac, then he swans off to the gym for three – four hours at a time. I told him if that if he can go to the gym then he doesn’t deserve my sympathy.” Leandra said.
The posting that managed to give people a good laugh was soon pulled down by the site as the bidding had reached £65,000 ffs!
Simon was a little disappointed but later explained that it was all in good fun. He said, ”I was disappointed the listing was taken down, mainly because I wanted to see how high it would go, but it was for a laugh so I wasn’t actually gutted. It wasn’t like I’d actually let someone have her – she’s too good.”
