Bizarre! Man puts 'used' wife up for sale on eBay; bids hit Rs 60 lakhs

London: A 33-year-old telecom engineer in the United Kingdom has put up his "used wife" up for sale on eBay and bids have hit a whopping 65,880 pounds (nearly Rs 6 crore), a media reports said on Thursday.

According to a report, Simon O'Kane from Wakefield in Yorkshire posted the picture of his wife Leandra, 27, on eBay last week.

The advert read "used wife" for sale. It also reportedly described the pros and cons of the "purchase".

The father of two has claimed that his wife has not been playing the role of a devoted wife and hence he has decided to put her up on sale.

According to Daily Express, the initial bids alone hit 65,880 pounds (nearly Rs 6 crore) within two days.

"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," the report Simon as saying.

The advert read: "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 (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 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.”

The angry wife responded by saying: "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.

"If eBay hadn't taken the listing down, who knows how much I would have got."
