Regret...

Posted 08 April 2009 - 11:14 AM

Was just talking about buyers remorse with someone. Got me thinking about what all I've bought over the years that I really wish I hadn't.


Let's see here....

XBox, never play it
40 gallon fish tank
Contacts on 1-800-Contacts (insurance didn't cover them, would have if I got them through optometrist)
1080i LCD TV (Should have gone 1080p and just been done with it)
1TB NAS/External HDD (Blew up after a year, what a waste)

I'll think of some more, but what do you regret buying?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

The swedish version of C++ Programming by Steven Prata, I prefer the english versions of books. I bought the swedish one due to it was cheaper but some of the translations are wacky <.<

1998 Chevy Blazer. It only had 60,000 miles on it, was clean, ran smooth & was well worth the price. The thing ran wonderfully for about 10,000 miles, & then the cruise control went out, followed by the ABS breaks, the rear windshield whipper arm, the water pump, the air conditioning pump, & one of the spark plugs was blocked by the steering wheel arm (if that's what it's called), the fuel pump (replaced that & the fuel filter), & then the dang thing just wouldn't start.

So for the price I got about 30,000 miles, a little experience working on Blazer's, & a huge headache.

Oh, & I made lemon aid for quite some time.

I wish I never bought that thing.

The town I live is not very big but recently had two awful murders. I went and bought a small .380 by Jimenez out of Vegas. I thought it would be a good pistol since it was small and would fit in my purse. I shot it the other day and it has a tendency to jam. Sux. I should have shelled out the extra two hundred and got a Glock. I thought with it being made in the states the quality would be ok and didnt review it online. Total dumbass.

My mail order bride. You'd think a chick that traveled here in a box in a ship's cargo hold would be a little more grateful, but no such luck. :(

Get a little more powerful ammo. Practice more on holding the gun firmly (i.e. not limp wristing it), and oil it up real good.

If that doesn't fix it, might be worth a trip to the gun smith to check the ejector.

Hm.

-The computer I am on currently. (so much is wrong with it)
-My phone. (LG Voyager, now it seems as if everyone has one, and it sucks as an .MP3 player)

Probably more to this, I just don't want to think right now. :P

I just really hate 3rd person games.. Not to mention fixed 3rd person. I don't know, I probably could have given it a better chance, but when I'm paying $60 a pop for a game -- It better have me fucking mesmerized within the first half hour or I'm writing EA an email and driving my ass down to Gamestop to trade it in..
