    What are the worst things you have ordered from Flea bay or Amazon etc when you have drunk too much, so far I've got 6 Stetson cowboy hats that I've never worn at over a hundred quid each, and numerous odds and sods that I'll probably never ever use, plus this cruise control that came with no instructions, I'm still trying to work out how to use it.

    I bought an aging Land Rover Discovery off Ebay, late, very late on a friday night.

    I flew over to get it and it broke down on the return trip.


    REALLY must stop going on Ebay after being at the pub...................:(:eek::worried:

    Not me but my boss came into work a couple of weeks ago and produced a cattle prod type stun gun he'd bought while drunk :joy: I was nearly gonna zap myself in the leg with it to see but he reckoned it was decapasitating so I chickened out, looked at my apprentice and he run off :joy:

    I'm sure a psychoanalyst could help sort you deep seated desire to be a cowboy. [​IMG]

    Never in a million years, I love western Movies, I've even got a replica Colt 45 with a gunslingers harness.

    I used to throw stupid bids at mountain bikes and gear... and won too many... the old lady was always mighty pissed off when I had to travel half the country the pick up another £50 “bargain”

    I very nearly bought a 5 grand Alfa Romeo while watching England play rugby at the pub, luckily they scored just as the bidding ended!

    My wife was sat next to me when i was reading the start of this thread on not knowing what the clamp thing did on the cruise control, she said it should tighten round your nob to remind you not to be one when out on a ride!

    I'm proper Scottish, and therefore physiologically incapable of making silly purchases on fleebay. By the time I get drunk enough to lose financial reason, I'd be too incapable to operate a computer (or stand, or talk coherently). Up to that point I'm too mean to part with folding money, electronically or otherwise (never invite me for a drink, hoping I'll get a round in). If there was such a twilight zone, where I had lost reason but could still make online purchases, I think I'd have a knackered BSA A10 occupying pride of place in the sitting room...

    ...and divorce papers to sign.

    That story about the guy with the tazer is priceless! Very funny.
