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?

Shit fucking hoover
We bought an Elextrolux hoover for our first home. It was an upright one, and a complete tosser.


It only made the noise of a hoover, it didn't actually do much hoovering.

It was a bagless one (trying to immitate Dyson)and as such collected what dust it did collect into a see through chamber. Trying to get the fucker off the body of the hoover would make you crumple into the fetus position and sob like a baby.

The hose ended at the top of the hoover, so that when you were using it, the slightest yank would cause the hoover to topple over, usually twatting your foot in the process.

We bought a Dyson in Makros in the end, and the next time we went to the dump, we kicked the fuck out of it and lobbed it in the skip. Some dustbusters came over and told us to leave him alone, so we stabbed them too.
