Now if you’re like me, or a lot of guys for that matter who are or were married, you may at some point in your life considered getting a divorce. Having been there and done that and still alive after two divorces, I gotta hand it to this guy who had the balls to list his wife on eBay hoping that someone would bid on her.
Hey, what the hell. Why go through a messy divorce when you could dump your spouse and make a few bucks to boot.
Admittedly, this guy Simon O’Kane who lives in the U.K. said that he thought it would be a really funny idea to create an eBay listing to auction off his wife because he was kinda ticked off that she was not giving him enough sympathy when he wanted it. Sounds like a logical plan to me.
The poor guy explained that after getting fed up with his wife’s lack of sympathy he decided to place the ad on eBay. He said, “I came in after work feeling a bit tired and unwell – my wife was 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.”
Well, ya gotta hand it to the guy. it was either that or justifiable homicide.
Now, first of all, it’s illegal to post an actual human being for an auction on eBay. And, that said, which I just did if you were paying attention, the ad has since been taken down. BUT……not to my surprise or anyone elses, he got some offers, which is not a surprise to me, but somewhat of a surprise to me because he listed his wife under the eBay heading, “Vehicle Parts & Accessories”
BUT….when ya think about it, it DOES seem like the most logical heading to use if you’re listing your wife for sale. After all, she does HAVE parts, and most women I know DO come with accessories.
And on top of that he listed her condition on eBay as “used.”
Um….not gonna touch that one folks.
OK…OK….tooooo hard to resist……………………..
Here’s a view of the guy’s ad:
O’Kane went on to describe his wife in the ad as, “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 out there that is more deserving of her than me (oh dear god please let there be).” O’Kane then specified that there were to be no returns once his wife was claimed “…EVER!”
Cripes, is this guy still alive and breathing?
Anyhow, his wife, Leandra did attract a ton of bidders before the post was removed, And the highest bid when it was deleted was $87,000. Such a deal.
Here’s the wording of the actual ad:
Soooooo, what did his wife say when she learned of the ad? Her words, which indicates that she was somewhat pissed off: “I was absolutely fuming — I wanted to kill him,” she said. “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.”
YES……she was pissed off that he used a bad photo. OMFG! A bad photo. The freakin nerve of that prick. Least he could have done was find a great pic of her. Bastard.
But, like all women, after cooling down a bit, and, assuming she took a chainsaw to her hubby, did say that she was kinda intrigued by the response to the ad.
“Um, you got offer how much on the last bid dear? Hmmmmm.”
And she went on to say, just like any typical woman would say, “If eBay hadn’t taken the listing down, who knows how much I would have got?
Notice she said “I” rather the “he.”
Always gotta share the money ya make off of eBay.
The article stated that despite her anger, she appeared to still have a sense of humor over the whole eBay episode, or as the article stated, “she seems to have an extremely lenient sense of humor, or is at least pretending to while she plots her vengeance on her husband.”
Can anyone say, “Lorena Bobbitt.”
O’Kane said the couple did get a few “pervy” messages from potential buyers asking for more photos, but that most of the responses were funny. “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,” he commented. He’s then quick to assure “It wasn’t like I’d actually let someone have her – she’s too good.”
Gotta love those pervs.
Now personally, having gone through two divorces, I can think of how appealing that camel offer might have been thinking of at least one of my ex wives.
