Guy Wants To Sell His Water Cooler In Exchange For Eggs, It Turns Into A Hilairous Bidding War

Bidding wars online can get pretty pricey pretty fast. No matter how basic the item might seem if someone finds something they really want or need they are willing to go all in. Some things, however, you can’t put a price on – well at least a traditional price – as two bidders found out as they were thrown into the strangest bidding war you’ve ever seen.

Facebook user, Aussie Ben the Bloke, wanted to unload a water cooler he was no longer in need of, so he put it on sale for a rather egg-cellent price and hilarity ensued, as two strangers put all their eggs in one basket, so to speak, to purchase the item.

The user was looking to unload a water cooler that he was no longer in need of, but instead of selling it for traditional currency he decided to spice things up with an unusual request.

He explained that he was selling the appliance because they had no use for it after buying a new fridge. Ben stated he had kept it “out of spite as the wife said I wouldn’t use it now we have a new fridge,” but now it was time to sell. Instead of going with the original asking price of $3.50, gave a new condition – $0 but the buyer must supply “two uncracked eggs with smiley faces drawn on them.”

Unsurprisingly, his inbox quickly filled up with offers but was narrowed down to a bidding war between two women, Amber and Donna – and boy did things egg-scalate.

Amber tried to see if she could cut some corners by buying eggs with pre-drawn smiley faces on them, but Ben was clear – hand-drawn only.

Not to be outbid Donna continued the bidding war and even threw in some egg-based jokes for good measure.

He informed Amber of the new egg price and she tried to see if she good persuade him with real money ($20) but it was of no use, he was set on eggs.

It was then revealed that Amber had a leg up in the competition as she was a chicken farmer – Ben had to consider the “eggconomy.”

But Amber was not so easily scared off and increased her offer once again.

Late in the game, another bidder tried to throw their hat into the ring but backed out when they realized how egg-streme things had gotten.

Amber was happy to win and informed him that she would send over the eggs complete with smiley faces.
