Nothing ticks me off more than thinking I bought something really good, and it turns out to be cheap, rotten, garbage.
Either through false claims or other means we have all fallen victim to buying a product that fell far short of our expectations.
Most recently, I purchased this...

I thought woohoo! never shave my legs again! only seconds to work!never cut myself again!
This product cost me $17.00, and it doesn't work in seconds.
Took me a full 10 minutes to do the same size area that I could swipe with a razor in 2 seconds flat, and the hair grew back at the same rate as if I shaved it off with a 25 cent razor.
I'll never use it..just let it collect dust in my bathroom cupboard.

So what products have you bought that you wish you hadn't?
Share it here and spare us the trouble and expense.

(yes I know I could look up product reviews online..but I'm always here )

My electronic drum set.
Usually with those you can change the heads or the pads when they get old or damaged.
Mine i bought just assuming that was the case.
It turns out once you ruin the pad the kit is finished.
Its a drumset so obviously they will get beat up and bashed around.
They made it so you can't upgrade anything or replace anything.
Whoever heard of a company that doesn't sell parts for its products??
If I had my way I would just

Ditto. I do use it on my knees though since those are bony and treacherous. Sitting on the couch watching tv, or talking on the phone, doing my knees. Once used it in the car at a traffic light.

Thought I could use the small one for my eyebrows. Nada.

The select comfort bed. Which is an expensive mistake to make. My husband and I have very bad backs. Not being experienced in shopping, I didn't know what to look for.

He likes his side firm, I like mine soft. Perfect for us, right?

Well soft means a deflated bag. So basically I sleep in a bowl. Sometimes my husband rolls into me.

Never again. Took me a few years to pay off that mistake too.

The only advantage is that when I was preggo, it came in really handy. It was comfortable then for some reason and I could change it as needed.

Leather furniture when my wife is a cat person. We have three of the little monsters and what was once a lovely new chair which is now shredded.
