A prankster husband took objectifying women to the next level when he put his wife up for sale on eBay like a second-hand car – but was stunned when bids topped the average price of a Jaguar.
Father-of-two Simon O’Kane posted a picture of long-suffering Leandra alongside a tongue-in-cheek ad detailing his reasons for selling her and the pros and cons of the ‘purchase’.
These included her ‘decent bodywork and skills in the kitchen’ and describing her as ‘not new has been used but still got some good miles left in her.’
Motorbike enthusiast Mr O’Kane, from Wakefield, Yorkshire, put his wife up for sale at around 10pm on Wednesday after claiming she was unsympathetic when he moaned about feeling unwell.
The 33-year-old was stunned when bids hit £65,880 within two days – though she ‘wanted to kill him’ when she discovered the next day that she was ‘for sale’.
The post reads: ‘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. Reports DailyMail.
He was stunned when the bids hit 65,880 pounds within two days and his wife, said she “wanted to kill him” when she discovered what he did the next day.
“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,” Leandra, a beauty therapist, said. “If eBay hadn’t taken the listing down, who knows how much I could have fetched.”
Simon said they did get a few “pervy” messages from potential buyers asking to see more photos, but said most of the responses were funny.
“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,” he added. Reports NDTV.
