Pretty much anything advertised on the tube that has the quote “But wait, there’s more!”

Tattoos and piercings. Good work isn’t cheap and cheap work isn’t good.

I quit buying from Harbor Freight when 5 out of 6 items in my order were broken or not functioning. I figured I should be able to use an item at least once before it breaks.

Ate a 79 cent hot dog at a gas station on the 2nd day of my 5 day vacation to my favorite place on Earth and spent the next week unable to eat and constantly ill.

I bought a nice pair of corduroy trousers in the sales for £10. They were a nice warm material in a colour I like so I snapped them up. When I tried them on I found the seams don’t run straight but go down the front rather than the sides of the leg. I use them for cycling when I move too quickly for people to notice.

You can have it cheap, quick, and of good quality. Pick any two.
