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?

My experience of cheap tat is somewhat limited as I am, old boy, a bit posh*.

My younger brother's best mate bought me a Calvin Klein belt from Spain.

"Wonderful", I thought, "he has realised my value".

It has various washing instructions embossed upon it in chunky letters (it looks good, honest). Among the words, the immortal legend "Do Not Tuble Dry" is marked. As is "May Loose Colour".

His contempt for me was revealed, but I had the last laugh, as it is still preventing me from indecently exposing myself, this very day, 6 years on.


* almost certainly not true.

I'm currently wearing a Levis Nike belt I bought in Greece. Never a problem. Yes, Levis AND Nike
