This is a question Cheap Tat

OneEyedMonster remindes us about the crap you can buy in pound shops: "Batteries that lasted about an hour and then died. A screwdriver with a loose handle so I couldn't turn the damn screw, and a tape measure which wasn't at all accurate."

Similarly, my neighbour bought a lawnmower from Argos that was so cheap the wheels didn't go round, it sort of skidded over the grass whilst gently back-combing it.

What's the cheapest, most useless crap you've bought?

A mop
... one of those with a side handle that folds the head in half to squeeze out the water from the sponge head.

Except that the hollow metal shaft was weaker than the sponge, so on the first squeeze, the whole thing neatly folded itself in half.

At least that made it easier to put in the bin.
