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?

I bought a
breath testing device from a 'Texaco' garage a few weeks ago for a fiver, after 7* pints it said I was safe to drive home....

According to the police officer I wasn't!*

*may not be entirely true.

the real thing ain't much better! When officers get trained on the breath machines, they spend an evening drinking, and periodically blowing samples. I've known larger gentlemen blow under the limit after 7 pints.

This may not be part of the official training programme, by the way.
