Man leaves people in hysterics over his wife’s ‘pointless washing-up purchase’

A man was left in hysterics when he saw his wife’s latest “pointless” purchase.

Aaron Southard, 33, says his hairdresser wife Sarah, 31, is always buying random things online, so when her latest order arrived he thought nothing of it.

But the truck driver couldn’t contain his laughter when he saw her latest bizarre buy – a small bed for a washing-up sponge.

The unique design even comes complete with a plastic bed frame and two small white cushions.

Aaron shared a photo of the teeny tiny bed on Twitter alongside the caption: “Now my wife has ordered some pointless s**t before but this tops it. A bed washing up sponge holder.”

“I’m used to us getting a parcel nearly every day because she’s always ordering all kinds of stuff so thought nothing of it,” Aaron said.

“When she took it out of the box, I just laughed, I couldn’t believe how ridiculous it was.

“The funny thing is that we are both too scared to get it dirty so neither of us has used it.”

Since being posted, the tweet has racked up more than 137,000 likes and thousands of comments from users who can’t get enough of the bizarre bed – with some admitting they have one too.

“I actually own one of these and love it,” one person wrote.

Another said: “Haha. To be honest it would be something I would buy.”

A third person said that Aaron’s wife wasn’t alone in her bizarre purchases, adding: “I thought it was only my wife who bought this st. She once bought a dog bed because it had 50% off but we didn’t have a f dog.”

Whilst someone else put: “I want one. I don’t even wash dishes.”

Aaron says he wasn’t expecting his post to go viral and only uploaded it for a laugh.

He said: “I’m honesty gobsmacked at how popular the post has become, I went to bed early the night before as I had work the next day and woke up to thousands of notifications!”

Another one of Sarah’s random purchases included a giant inflatable waterpark for the couple’s garden, as well as an egg chair.

He added: “I came home to an aqua park in the garden last summer and also an egg chair which she said is my new gaming chair.”
