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 worked in a £1 shop once
Well, I managed a week.
Several people, not just one or two but several genuinely came up to me with items and enquired "How much is this, please?".
After biting my tongue and being polite too many times, I eventually broke and said "That one is £2.99". The (genuine) response to that? "Wow! Really?" "No" I replied. Why do you think they named the shop "Everything £1?"

I think that was followed by an obscenity under my breath. I may have known I wasn't staying but I didn't want to be arrested.
