Stupidest thing you've ever bought

Well there are a lot of products out there that claim to be well worth it, but usually you come to find they are not. The stupidest thing I've ever bought was a round brush that when you push the button it spins and its supposed to curl the end of your hair. Well I first used it and when I pushed the button it spinned way too fast and I got my hair caught in it, it was just a mess. It took two people and 20 minutes to get that thing out of my hair, not to mention I was late for work. What a waste. What is the stupidest thing you have ever bought?

Lol I remember when my brother used to buy them, he had so many it was ridiculous and he kept on convincing my parents to buy them because he was sure they would be worth something one day!

yeawh that was everyones motive back then seeing that the cards will become some type of vaule in years to come , and i made a little bit of a lunch money hustle out of it too , kids would give up their lunch money for just 1 card, offer homework help , anything they could trade videogames, sneakers , it was nuts lol

I bought an all new wardrobe a couple of summers ago of really nice, dressy clothes because I was convinced that I was going to be a real estate agent. Then I got a job where I didn't need to dress up and forgot all about being a real estate agent, then I gained a bunch of weight and they won't fit me anymore. That's a waste. They are really great clothes too that's what's really sad about it!

Oh man that sucks! I kind of know how you feel though I buy clothes constantly because of trends, and later realize I look really stupid. And when I buy clothes constantly I continually lose weight ( because I'm dieting and working out ) and the clothes won't fit for very long. Thats where ebay comes in lol.

A pedegg it is to file the dry skin off of your foot and the fillings are suppose to go into the egg so you can throw them away it does not work like that most of the shaving ended up on my pants I an do that with a regular file. I will never buy something from one of the infocommericals again it is all just cheap stuff.

Hi there temptation! That's actually funny, forgive me. I'm just imagining how it looked like. I remember my younger sister used that kind of brush too and we had to cut off her bangs. In my case, it's this electric razor that I bought as an anniversary gift for my husband. I was really excited because I know he'd like it but when he opened it up and tried to use it, it's just like pulling the hairs off. He never used it again.

I wasted my money almost everyday trying some food which i throw when I learn that it taste bad.also. I bought some clothes in tiagges or bazaars without trying them only to realize they dont fit.There are tianges without fitting rooms.

I bought a fondue set once to have at parties ans such. Once I had recieved the product I realized that it only kept the dips warm, that you had to cook the dip first before using the fondue machine. I think it kind of defeats the purpose.

I'm going to go with a lightbox gadget I bought from Ebay so I could transfer photo negatives to my computer using my scanner..I asked the guy I bought it from would it work with my scanner..it didn't...I got it cheap,so it wasn't worth posting back,and I tried selling it on..1 Guy in Germany bid on it,and He didn't pay the bank charges for the currency exchange from Euro- the amount he paid was swallowed by the charges,and 48pence arrived in my account!
