Come on, ‘fess up. Who here has clicked on something and bought it when drunk…?
I just spotted a $275 purchase of raffle tickets I did last night to win a $10k bike. I meant to choose the 5 tickets for $55 option but chose that option x5….. Yikes. Fortunately, they sorted it and I don’t have to explain this to SWMBO.Posted 3 years ago
I signed up for an Ironman, once.Posted 3 years ago

Had no idea the morning after until my housemate told me.
Got a good price on it mind. 😆

I bid £600 on a charity auction to go for beers with an England Rugby player at a Christmas party last weekend and promptly won….was not feeling great when I’d sobered up the next day….I’m skint as it is!!!Posted 3 years ago
On a night out a few weeks ago googly eyes came up in conversation. I purchased a pack of 2000 googly eyes in assorted sizes on amazon. These have come in very handy in the office over the Christmas period.Posted 3 years ago
A one kilogramme ingot of pure copper… does make a great paperweight!Posted 3 years ago
An inbred frame on here, (not a lot of money, but It was money I really couldn’t afford at the time) even had the chance to bail out of it the morning after, but I didn’t want to lose face.
Nope, none of those. None at all.Posted 3 years ago
Lol, I have to laugh at this post. Found myself in this situation last night, £200 for new cycling shoes is cheap at 1 in the morningPosted 3 years ago

Following on from Aphex about $50 on raffle tickets and shouting about $200 of food for some brewer mates as they were contributing beer – not a month where that was sensible
A Land Rover Defender.
… I wonder if the reserve is over €9000…
Oh, it is.Posted 3 years ago
A trials bike, with an engine and everything.Posted 3 years ago
I’m banned now. In no specific order, a RS4 (!) in my defence I’d sold my company and had been on the bubbles, saw it, bought it. A painting that is frankly shite. A driving experience thing which was alright and most recently a 2 night stay at glen eagles with a M5 to drive there, golf etc which actually was a bargain but not exactly on the fiscal plan!Posted 3 years ago
Oh and 2 bikes or part bikes. One almost fits me….

I checked my e-mails one morning and discovered I’d bought a canoe from amazon whilst drunk the night previous. Another time a packet came through my letterbox and when I opened it, it was the Greatest Hits of Slade. Which I have no recollection of ordering.Posted 3 years ago
Bobario the canoe is brilliant!Posted 3 years ago
A drum kit.

A “spare” rx8 to match my other one… Bid £250 and won because it was listed wrong. Realised it was going to cost £200 to get it to my house and fessed up and told the guy about his error so he was happy to relist and forget my purchasePosted 3 years ago
Having never been drunk a day in my life, these are well and truly hilarious!!Posted 3 years ago
Put a cheeky bid on a GRP folkboat with newish sails. Only went and “won” it.
Bloody brilliant boatPosted 3 years ago
My mate reminded me he bought a turbo trainer from America. Trainer was cheap, the $180 of postage wasn’tPosted 3 years ago
Enve wheels…Posted 3 years ago
Honestly, drunk shopping is probably what keeps the carbon wheelset industry going, as the prices are ludicrous! I’m amazed how many are out there! They are ace though 😆

Talking about an album I really liked in the pub one night, the consensus was “that’s not their best work, this is.” When I got home at like midnight or something I ordered the CD.
Got up the next morning, and the box was through the letterbox. I couldn’t for the life of me work out how a CD we’d been talking about the previous night had miraculously appeared the next morning, I thought I was being eavesdropped by Google or Facebook or something.Posted 3 years ago
Day before yesterday, a Worx pressure washer and two pairs of Adidas Terrex cross trainers.

Few years ago I meant to stick a bid of £123 for an old Alfa on ebay just to keep an eye on it as you get outbid notifications etc on your phone, knew it would go for more so was purely just to keep a wee eye on it.
A week passes and I forgot about it till I found out I won it, seems I bid £1234 by mistake… The seller phones me up almost instantly as the notifications pop up on my phone as well to talk turkey as I’m still getting a grasp of what is happening.
It ran ok enough for 3 years as well, till it turned in to a a rustbucket and was scrapped, worked out alright.Posted 3 years ago
A Gibson SG which I’ve hardly played.Posted 3 years ago
The other night a went out with other cyclists I know for our usual annual drinks.
I was persuaded to sell a hard tail Ive built this year I then came home and spent the funds on a new XC race bike.
I don’t have any intention to race XC. Ever.Posted 3 years ago
A Fender Strat Delux which I’ve hardly played.
A shitty 1990s Carrera Road bike which I’ve hardly ridden on accounts of already having a nice 1990s road bike.
Both cheap though on account of them ending around midnight on Ebay.Posted 3 years ago
I’m just about to buy a porsche cayenne and I’m not drunk. After reading the horror stories about the engine reliability I think I need to be!Posted 3 years ago
