A man identified as Simon O’Kane from Wakefield, Yorkshire has shocked many people by posting a picture of long-suffering wife Leandra on eBay for sale.
According to The Express, the father-of-two made the listing at around 10pm last Wednesday after he claimed Leandra was not playing the role of a devoted wife.
However, what the man never expected was that many would turn up to buy his wife. Just in two days, the 33-year-old was stunned when bids hit £65,880 for his wife. The angry wife was stunned after making the discovery as she revealed her husband wanted to kill her.
Mr O’Kane, a telecom engineer and proud owner of a Triumph Daytona 650, said: “I came in after work feeling a bit tired and unwell – my was wife doing the usual concerned bit but said I was burning the candle at both ends and was basically just whining at me.
“I thought ‘right I’m going to put you up for sale’.”
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.
“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!”
When Mrs O’Kane found out about the prank she hit the roof. Mrs O’Kane, 27 and a beauty therapist, said: “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.
“If eBay hadn’t taken the listing down, who knows how much I would have got?”
After the first few bids trickled in Mrs O’Kane proved a hit with bids soaring to more than £65,000. Fellow bikers got in on the joke by asking questions about mileage and upkeep.
Mr O’Kane said: “There were a few general pervy guys asking for more pictures but most of the responses to the ad were hilarious.
The best one was ‘has she raced or rallied?’ We both liked the guy looking to exchange her for a camel, and the guy trying to work out how much bacon he could get really got us howling.”
The woman’s husband who is a serial joker later revealed it was all a joke.
