A plastic bucket is a household item that can be found in almost every home. But what if we told you that this basic item, which is a requirement in every home, costs Rs. 26,000? Would you even believe it? No one would, of course. But a seller on Amazon just woke up one day and decided to sell their ordinary pink bucket for Rs. 25,999.
Everyone who saw the price was surprised. We're not sure if anyone bought this item for their home, but it certainly inspired a number of memes and jokes that made our day.
Read on to know about the Plastic Bucket and it's speciality:
Plastic Bucket For Rs. 25,999
A twitter user Vivek Raju shared a screenshot of the bizarre pricing of plastic buckets on Amazon that gained the attention of a lot of people. The item is titled as 'Plastic Bucket for Home and Bathroom Set of 1'. The bucket is very generic and has a size: 31.5 cm x 31.5 cm x 30 cm.
What surprised us even more is that 25,999 is the discounted price after 28% off. The actual price of the item is Rs. 35,900.
Sharing the post, the twitter user wrote, "Just found this on Amazon and I don't know what to do".
