Your Most Regrettable Drug- or Alcohol Induced Purchase
Preparation H, Horible experience, worst drug purchase in my life, almost became addicted.
Not exactly a purchase, but I decided to call the Psychic Hotline so I could show them. I effectively debated the call center worker until I was too much for her and got cut off. A mere $70 for the feeling of smug self-satisfaction.
Bought ten vodka tonics at Menjo's one night and didn't have a dollar to get home and had to drive drunk.
A three year gym membership.
I regretted it initially and then thought I may as well go since I've paid for it.
5 years later I think it's the best purchase I've ever made, however I'd never do anything like that again. Sometimes I'll be working out thinking how that impulsive action could have been disastrous. The purchase turned out okay but not because I actually knew it was a good idea the time.
Does marriage count?
The Island of Lani.
R1 and R3 seem to have missed the point.
6 cases of panty hose and I am a guy.

The title should have read "Your Most Regrettable Drug- or Alcohol-Induced Purchase" so that helped create the confusion.
OP, I've just smoked a bowl of Blue Dream and I could swear that your corrected title is the same as the one on the subject line.
Tried some crack last night, this morning purchased a pair of ballet pointe shoes, I've always wanted to be a prima ballerina. They are a size 12 wide.
S'okay, Lee Roi, honey. Everything is beautiful at the ballet.
Snakeprint jeans. What do I win
I'm not telling, but let's just say I'm out $18.
Asian mail-order bride.
Strawberry Shortcake thermos on eBay.
Lots of mp3's on Amazon. I'll smoke weed and end up buying so many and then only listen to them a couple times.
god help me, a male escort out of the back of frontiers...molly and g induced decision.
R18 I've done that, too, but that's the least of it. I've woken up and remembered nothing until I'd see all these e-mail order or shipment confirmations from Amazon.
The strangest: Harry and Louis dolls (and I don't collect dolls)
Oh well, at work we have a Holiday toy drive so some little 1D fan will have a merry Christmas.
I bought a realllllly creepy Little Mermaid pillow at the Ice Capades or the Disney on Ice equivalent. Her Fin looked like a shimmering two headed dildo. I was 9 and totes wasted.
My freshman year of college, I got very stoned at a friends apartment while we were watching some show on HBO called "Sexy TV" or some such nonsense.
There was a very brief segment on it about the Naked News, most of it focused on the female anchors. But at the end, they said they also had male reporters.
Well, being 18 and not great with weed, my own gayness, or money as of yet, I went back to my dorm room and joined up. Smoked more, watched maybe five hours of the most goofy excuse for wank material available and jerked off probably six times. I think the charge was 12.99 a month or something.
Six months later, call from my dad (who was at the time paying for my credit card which I was to use only for emergencies) "Son, I know you are on your own for the first time and all, and it is exciting, but you need to lay off the pornography on the computer."
Totally forgot about it. Hadn't watched it from the first day I bought it. Essentially outed myself to my dad, who very kindly let it go for six months before complaining.
I also think I came on here and posted how amazing "The Naked News" was and got blasted for two pages because I spelled "Canadian" wrong.
When I first started taking Ambien, and didn't realize right away that I had to be in bed when I took it, I went on Amazon and bought a bunch of books on the Catholic church. I think I bought about forty of them. I was too embarrassed to send them back and I didn't want to admit to Ambien shopping, so I just stacked them in my bookshelf. A few months later I broke my leg in several places and while I was home I decided to try to read a few of the books. Turns out that the books were about the seedy underbelly of the church's history. One book detailed the history of the Vatican's spy network, their agencies that are like our CIA and FBI that continues to this day. In the end it worked out well, but I learned my lesson about when to take my Ambien.
A really expensive teapot(!?) when I was FUCKED on a totem pole of Xanax. I went back the next day and tried to explain to the saleswoman that I had gotten my medication wrong and that's why I deserved my money back (they only did store credit). She very kindly told me that she couldn't make an exception as their system didn't allow money to be given back (of course she was lying, whether knowingly or unknowingly) and I decided to keep the teapot because I really liked it. It did suck being $200 short, though.
I bought leather pants while on large amounts of Vicodin after surgery. I am a guy. I also bought one of those abdominal shocking machines that is supposed to give you six pack abs. I was really drunk at the time, and bought it from an infomercial.
A dildo. Ordered it online and didn't realise I was on an US site and that the measurements were in inches rather than centimetres.
I was loathe to waste the money and gave that thing a good shot, but there was no way it was fitting. I keep it as a reminder of the metric/imperial divide.
All of my most regrettable and embarrassing purchases have been made while sober, but anyway... Back when I was stripping and working I made the most money I've ever made in my working life. I started buying outrageous and ridiculous club/rave clothes that were way overpriced. I wore a few things once, some never. A few months later I got into a serious relationship and gave all that shit to Goodwill. People on eBay wouldn't even buy it, and I was too embarrassed to sell it at a yard sale.
The complete series of "The Ann Sothern Show" on bootleg DVD.

Is that you Rupert?
So funny, r27.
Well, I've had some beers and have just purchased a datalounge subscription. Pretty sure I wouldn't have when completely sober.
