In a fine illustration of beauty with brains, a woman has convinced her 20 boyfriends to purchase her 20 iPhone 7 which she smartly sold to buy her dream house. According to a report, a Chinese blogger using the pseudonym Proud Qiaoba shared this astounding tale about her friend Xiaoli (also a pseudonym), who sold the 20 iPhone 7s for a total 120,000 Chinese yuan (about $18,000) to a tech resale company, then used this money to pay for a new home. Proud Qiaoba wrote in the post that Xiaoli is not from a wealthy family – she is the older daughter of a migrant worker and a housewife. “Her parents are getting old and she might be under a lot pressure hoping to buy them a house… But it’s still unbelievable that she could use this method!” the report said.
The story has been doing the rounds on social media. People reportedly have been sharing the story using a hashtag (that roughly translates to ’20 Mobiles for a House’).
Now this story has raised the traditional debate- can end justifies the means? While some people have heaped praise on her tactics, others have flayed her ways. One Internet user in China posted, “I can’t even find one boyfriend. She can actually find 20 boyfriends at the same time and even get them to buy her an iPhone 7. Just want to ask her to teach me such skills.” But another called Xiaoli “the most shameless person.”
