This is a question I was drunk when I bought this

Last weekend I realised that I was in a shoe shop sober for the first time... which is why I have such a wierd collection of shoes I don't wear. Thank god I don't have an Ebay account.

What rubbish have you bought whilst drunk?

I once bought a job lot of 4,000 new Sharps and Moben wardrobe and kitchen doors on eBay whilst under the influence of many pints of Strongbow (yes, I was a student at the time).

Seemed a bargain at the time at £1.34, and was the ideal get rich quick scheme, as I reckoned I could make a tidy profit by selling them individually.

What I hadn't reckoned in my drunken state was
A) How to get them from the other side of the country to where I lived
B)Where to store it all once I'd got it back.

I ended up having to hire a lorry to go and get them all, and stored these doors around my house and shed for 12 months while I gradually sold them all. I just got used to them being a way of life - making impromptu mini tables, seats and mega-size fly swatters of them. I couldn't even get into one of my bedrooms for a while...

Made a nice profit in the end though, and bought a new car with the proceeds. Never again though - I'm not sure I could cope with yet another birch-veneer ironing board...
