This Woman Convinced Her 20 Boyfriends to Buy Her 20 iPhone 7s Which She Sold to Buy a House in China
Let us recognize today a heroic woman who parlayed her resourcefulness and hustle into a scheme that involved her convincing her 20 boyfriends to buy her 20 new iPhone 7s, which she then sold, using the profits to put a down payment on a house.
According to the BBC, a Chinese blogger using the pseudonym Proud Qiaoba shared this astounding tale about her friend Xiaoli (also a pseudonym), who sold the 20 iPhone 7s for a total 120,000 Chinese yuan (about $18,000) to a tech resale company, then used this money to pay for a new home.
While the BBC was unable to confirm whether this fantastic narrative was entirely true, they did, however confirm that the resale company did, indeed, buy 20 new iPhones 7s from a woman in early October.
The story went viral on the Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo, where the BBC reports a hashtag that translates to “20 mobiles for a house” has been used over 13 million times, with many women expressing admiration for Xiaoli’s romantic and financial savvy. According to the BBC, one Weibo user posted, “I can’t even find one boyfriend. She can actually find 20 boyfriends at the same time and even get them to buy her an iPhone 7. Just want to ask her to teach me such skills.” Some others weren’t so friendly in their assessment of Xiaoli’s endeavor, calling her “shameful.” But Xiaoli reportedly has a house, 20 boyfriends, and for a brief time, 20 iPhone 7s, so it seems like she’s still the one coming out on top.
May we all approach our goals with this scope of vision in the future.
