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?

Watch out
When I was younger, my brother and I used to accompany my mum and dad when they went shopping, and on other journeys, etc.

Now, my folk's aren't well off, but they're not skint either, so extravagance wasn't an option really - we scraped by every day.

Anyway, this day, we accompanied them around a 'market', which generally sold cheap stuff, and a lot of second hand stalls (I remembered one sold second hand porno mags! :' )

As my brother and I shuffled behind the folks, I noticed a really crappy, old watch in a massive pile of assorted junk at a particular stall. For 20p, you could have a cheap, dirty, scratched bezel, with a stained strap. Just something you didn't want to look at for too long, never mind wear on your wrist. I laughed, and without hesitation (but 100% jokingly), said 'I bet my dad buys that!'

Now, I don't really need to explain what my dad revealed he had bought on the way home ...
