This is a question Waste of money

I once paid a small fortune to a solicitor in a legal case. She got lost on the way to court, turned up late with the wrong papers and started an argument with the judge, who told her to "shut up, for the love of God". A stunning investment.

Thanks to golddust for the suggestion

For some dull reason I had two accounts. Wanted a copy of OSX, found one on eBay, low price, so put in a cheeky bid. Logged in later to check how it was going, but stupidly did it under my other account. 'Ah-ha!', thinks I. 'It'll not get away that easily!'

So I bid. Against myself. Ended up knocking up the price by about a tenner, and won the item.

These days I just use one account.

Car auction
Mate of mine did a similar thing when bidding on an old Mercedes at a car auction. He took his wife with him to look at the motors and it was a case of 'this one?' 'yes, this one!' 'are you sure?' 'yes, it's perfect', with each nod and hand gesture knocking the price up by fifty quid.

He won it in the end having outbid his own missus to do so and pushing the price up by two hundred and fifty notes.
