    Got a ebay notification pop up on my phone today telling me I am now the proud owner of a BMX.! Went out on the lash last night and must of placed a bid. Can’t remember a bloody thing.

    Anyone else done this.?

    I won a washing machine pump last week, that is broken in exactly the same way as my current washing machine pump.

    Ace.

    I’ve also bought whilst drunk:
    A cracked 4x frame to use for XC (I’m 6 foot, it was a 13 inch),
    a 63cm roadbike
    a book case
    a chainsaw that doesn’t work for more than 20 seconds
    a VW camper van

    I’m not allwed my own account anymore and the wife has to “second” every bid!

    We needed a bathroom cabinet, saw one on eBay.. It looks ok.. Bid and win, and four days later was the proud owner of a bathroom cabinet for a dolls house, three inches by five inches big.. 😳

    Accidently bid on 2 identical pairs of wheels and won both. A bit of a pain in the arse. But made worse by the fact the GF was also bidding on them as a surprise birthday present so each cost me £30 more than they would have cost me otherwise. And also nearly bought a Austin A4 for my dad and accidently bid. £25000 not £2500. Luckily the seller was trying to scam and it didn’t exist. Oops.

    No, didn’t happen. Got made to retract the bid by the minister of fun. £600 bid would have won it though.

    This made me chuckle.

    Ive maid lots of CRC drunken purchases but no ebay ones.
    Usually they’ve been things I’ve wanted for a while but had the sensible restraint to postpone till a more financially appropriate time.
    Remove the restraint and some regrettable purchases happen!!

    Read this last night, thought I will have a look on eBay, and managed to buy a Garry Fischer by pressing buy it now rather than escape. Hoping the vendor will understand I am an idiot…

    a Hymer 6 wheel motor home

    the old ‘That? Oh, it’s been in the garage for ages.’ trick was always going to be a bit tricky with that one.

    Not me but a mate of mine was a nightmare for buying from qvc/ebay when he was pished. Candy floss maker, waterbed or a propellor for a outboard. He didn’t have a boat and hated the water…think his missus drown him in the waterbed

    Bid on an RGV250 at 1am. Auction ended at 1pm, but went out with family and forgot all about it. On my return I’d won! My wife is very understanding…

    Mrs Davesport was standing at the door one morning having a chat with the female postie who we know quite well. I sauntered past, said hello & Mrs D said “this” has arrived for you ! It was a flat package wrapped in brown paper approx two foot long & four inches across. Hmm, it’s addressed to me but I can’t remember ordering anything 🙂 so I started unwrapping the mystery package. The brown wrapping took a bit of getting off & underneath was a very dangerous looking & razor sharp machette. Mrs D & the postie visibly recoiled when it became apparent this thing wasn’t a toy. I immediately blamed the kids for ordering the thing but a quick look at my ebay history revealed I had ordered the thing in a drunken haze at 2 am several days previous.

    Anyone need a machette ? 8)

    The bathroom cabinet is my favourite so far!

    I inadvertantly acquired a boat. In my pre-biking days I did a lot of dinghy sailing and was toying with replacing my Laser.

    Found an RS300 and thought it looked interesting. Decided I should really keep saving for the engagement ring…

    Got Pissed up.

    Bought it.

    Delayed marriage proposal for a year or so.

    On the plus side, having a boat called “Kate’s Ring” started a few conversations.

    Still married. I Miss the boat.

    I also bought a BMX whilst having a rather large glass or two of a nice red.
    So if anyone wants a rough looking Eastern Shovelhead BMX, let me know.. 🙄

    No brakes, tyres aren’t great, seatpost is seized, chrome flaking off the rims, grips are shot.
    I was planning on sorting it mechanically & selling it back on, just haven’t got round to it yet.
    What I paid for it £40.

    How long do you recon it will be before someone’s drunk enough to buy this?

    Double slipper bath. £500. We were redoing the bathroom anyway at the time, but that caused a radical rethink of style. Probably cost another grand in getting matching high flush toilet and fancy sink.
    Still love it though.
