A lady from Plymouth has gone viral after she posted her leftover Chinese takeaway on Facebook in an attempt to sell it on.
Now, as someone who has an incredibly strong aversion to chucking away food… no, I still don’t get it, just stick it in the fridge and eat it for breakfast!
The half-eaten meal was posted on the Plymouth Crazy Sell and Buy page by a woman from the Devonport area of the city, at about midnight on March 11th, reports Plymouth Live.
In an impressive effort to move on her unwanted grub, the woman uploaded a photo of a stack of takeaway trays showing four mystery dishes, a bag, two sauces and prawn crackers.
And all she wanted for the lot was a fiver. Just to give that price some context, the poster stated she had originally paid 'well over £39 for it’ - which to be honest poses more questions than it answers.
She was keen to point out that it had ‘only been sat here for a few hours’ and that it needed to be ‘gone ASAP’ which is hardly the best marketing campaign I’ve ever come across.
Seemingly struggling for interest in the quickly congealing bounty, she later confirmed that the bundle contained four chicken balls (rooster, surely) with sauce that had been ‘undipped', rice, prawn crackers, chicken curry ‘untouched', half a bag of cold chips, chicken satay, crispy chilli beef and chow mein.
Her original post did get some interest, gaining over 30 comments. Some helpful people suggested she could pop the leftovers in the freezer while someone else enquired: “Is it still available?”
She responded: "Serious buyers only. Can deliver for small free [sic] need to walk my dog anyway. Let me know."

A screenshot of the post was subsequently shared to the 'U OK hun?' Facebook page, quickly generating an alarming amount of interest (mostly concerning the original price).
Unfortunately Plymouth Crazy Sell And Buy is a private page, so at the moment we are unable to provide any closure as to what happened to the food - although Plymouth Live has contacted the seller for more information.
I just hope it didn’t end up in the bin!
