Hi All! I doubt if I’m the only one that woke up to packages at my door having no clue what they were. What is your craziest Drunk (or DOC) purchase, and did you return it?
I did a quick scroll through Amazon orders while I was drinking and saw I bought ‘The Goldberg’s Cookbook’ which I still have somewhere. Funny thing is, I never watched the Goldberg’s on TV.
66 bananas. Was doing online grocery shopping and double tapped the 6 without realising. Bananas don’t keep that well
I dont think ive ever had a drunk/high purchase. I never had the money back then to buy anything haha But alot of my pointless purchases and over spending came into play when i got clean and switching addictions from drugs to online shopping. They werent even crazy items but they were just soooo pointless. Just to spend i guess lol
That mustve been a lot of banana bread (if u bake) lol
I still struggle with that, but I remember. I’m trying to ask myself before I buy anything, is this a Want or a Need. My 2 orchids I bought today & yesterday were a need!
Oh i bought plenty of shit drunk and was surprised when they arrived. The best was when i wanted to buy one of these…a halligan.
Idk why i wanted one but instead of spending all that dough i put a drunken reminder in my calendar to ask for one for my birthday smh.
Ohhh then there were the alcohol deliveries. That became a thing and was super expensive! I justified it by saying atleast im not drunk driving smh
Oh the insanity of it all
@james83 love the banana story
Oh my gosh! Every morning I would go online and make sure I didn’t buy anything on-line on my big benders. I bought sooooooo much stuff.
Pots, pans, a vacuum, a printer, but the plane ticket was the worst one!
Oh NO! so many DoorDash deliveries for booze . I made the same justification as you! Hey, it’s better than a DUI… probably true actually.
I bought A LOT of clothes that I really couldn’t afford. Drunk me decided that I deserved everything on my wish list. I made SO many pointless returns.
I’ve done that too!! Wake up and check Amazon to see what I bought. I used to worry about drunk texting people, but it turned into drunk buying.
I forgot about QVC, then you mentioned pots & pans. I have SO many Lock n Lock storage containers, they fill 2 cabinets and I have some in the garage. QVC had a 3 or 4 hour Sunday morning kitchen show, if it was football season, I was already drinking to get ready for the game. I have Food Network ceramic stock pots (I think they’re called, 3 sizes) I have a hand blender, a bunch of KitchenAid stuff, also, all in the garage.
What was the plane ticket for?
A poster of Bea Arthur.
I bought a ticket to Nigeria. No joke
That is a legit purchase. Did you go?
Three pairs of shoes.
All the same style, just different colours.
One pair was blue - im a middle aged man why do i want blue shoes ?
They dont fit
No but it took me days to cancel it and I didn’t get a full refund.
Wow, what a good thread to remind that doing ANYTHING under the influence can go south
I never purchased something drunken. I think that’s because I don’t shop a lot and even less online. I had way too much money spent on the food delivery services the day after, on hangover-induced binge eating attacks needing various different tastes from indian to italian food
Fuck, I have a lot more money since I only order when I’m not in the mood to cook
I spent some time trying to think about this and nothing really came to mind, but then again sober or not I have never really enjoyed spending money…
I bought a ticket to Norway at 6 am for the next day, during the pandemic.
I told my friend who was living there and he was like…umm, no you can’t come over here because CORONAVIRUS
