TAIWAN — A man who thought he could pull a fast one on his wife learned the hard way that it's always better to tell the truth.

The Taiwanese man told his wife that the expensive new PlayStation 5 he bought was actually an air purifier. The woman believed him until a rat died inside the couple's home and the "air purifier" did not hide the smell, the Herald Sun reports.

Once the wife became wise about the ruse, she made her husband sell the PS5.

When the buyer showed up to get the gaming system he was met by the "sad husband" instead of the woman he had spoken with on the phone. The husband told the buyer, "it's my wife who wants to sell it."
