Default regretable purchases

This thread is going to be for the dumbest **** you have bought and regretted immediately. I am starting this thread because I am now a member of this extremely large club.

I made a purchase of over 200 knives from the knife show and am in the process of trying to cancel my order.

We finally became pretty financially OK in 1983 so I told spouse she could pick out any car she wanted. She looked for quite a while and finally picked a Dodge 600 (she loved the fact that it talked).

Did my best to talk her out of it but no joy. A bigger POS was never made by Detroit and it literally fell apart in 3 years. It was nearly 20 years before we bought another American made vehicle - and that was a Ford truck...

I used to live in hotel rooms for about 5 years of my life as a traveling contractor.

Once the work day was done, there wasn't much to do if you didn't want to drink your paycheck away or hand it all over to some stripper.

One night I was flipping the 13 or so channels and got stuck on some stupid infomercial for this revolutionary new ab machine that could be used even in your hotel room on vacation.

Now, who doesn't want washboard abs, right?

I was just looking for pictures to show you all how stupid this little thing is, but I can't find any and I don't remember what it was called.

It was this 12" x 12" green platform that had four wheels, like the kind used by inline skaters, but the really cheap ones. Then it had pieces of surgical tubing that were attached and had handles on them. You put your knees on the trolley, pulled the surgical tubing way out and pinned them to the floor, then you used your ab muscles to scoot the trolley all the way up to where your hands were, and then back out to full extension again.

Dumbest

Purchase

EVA!!

I used it like 4 times and finally left it in my hotelroom when I changed locations.

I think it cost me like $50 too. Suckered! *party of me*

Davis derringer. In 22lr. As a back up gun.

To my Davis .380 auto.

Which was my carry piece.

Both of which I got new, for less than $200.

Live and learn.

I will rat the wife out on this! She picked it out and I paid $19.95 DVD Internet Dating. Once the DVD started rolling, my comments started very lame, watching noodles boil is better!

I inturn accidentally dropped the DVD in the shredder.

Sham WOW

If I could get my hands on vince I would choke slam his ass right in the biggest pile of dog sh!t I could find. $20 I paid for them dam things that couldn't get wet if you tied a 500# weight on them and sent them to the bottom of the Marin trench. DIRTY SOB. I tried to dry my dog off 35# of very short coat dog. I think she was more wet when I got done with the dam thing than when she was getting bathed. Not sure how that works but I swear she was more wet when I was done. She hated them so bad she ran down stairs and pissed on the couch. So Vince you owe me for the stupid shamwow's and a couch cleaning. I am just a little pissed about them.

I just paid $50 for a pillow too. We will see how that turns out. Yes I bought a sobakowa air bead pillow. It says $19.95 yeah that is for the kiddy size one If you are like me and have a KING size bed your going to be dropping $49.95 but wait you get a FREE pillow sham as well............

Jennings .25 semi-auto. Thought it was such a great deal for my wife for her first little carry gun until she looked it up on the interweb and saw that it sold for $30 bucks less anywhere than where we just bought it. Sold it that day to a pawn broker for a $25 loss. Oh and wife also noticed it was listed as a "Saturday Night Special"... Not my best showing.

I had better not answer this one as to what the purchase was, but let me just raise my hand as a fellow dumbarse who bought something that sounded fun and wasn't, exactly.
