willowsun Tue 12-Mar-13 17:42:06

i would be very grateful

You want someone to give you £20? confused

lucjam Tue 12-Mar-13 17:45:41

I'm pretty sure they only work once I don't think you'll find anyone willing to give you theirs!!!!

ThePathanKhansAmnesiac Tue 12-Mar-13 17:47:30

I don,t understand willow, so they,d be giving you their £20? Or is it just a generic type code thing? confused

BrittaPerry Tue 12-Mar-13 17:49:55

You are asing fir £20 off random strangers? Am I reading this right?

AuntieMaggie Tue 12-Mar-13 17:50:58

Eh? confused

SuckingDiesel Tue 12-Mar-13 17:52:47

Glad it's not just me reading it as asking for £20. Think you need to explain a bit more, OP or stop being so cheeky

MirandaWest Tue 12-Mar-13 17:53:43

Sorry - no ones likely to just give you £20

BoulevardOfBrokenSleep Tue 12-Mar-13 17:54:48

The person who bought it for you should be able to re-send the code if it hasn't been used. I think.

KindleMum Tue 12-Mar-13 17:55:43

Also struggling to see how you can lose it, given that it's not physical, it's an email. If you've deleted the email then Amazon can re-send it to the purchaser. But a gift voucher can only be used once.

So you want £20?

Lizzylou Tue 12-Mar-13 17:55:53

I lost a $10 note the other day.
Anyone like to give me theirs??

No. Didn't think so!

NatashaBee Tue 12-Mar-13 17:56:35

Ha Lizzylou, I was about to post the exact same thing. I'm assuming the OP must mean a discount code rather than an actual gift voucher though... surely?

CajaDeLaMemoria Tue 12-Mar-13 17:56:47

The code can be re sent by the purchaser if you need it to be. Unless by lost you mean it's expired?

Still, it's quite unlikely that anyone will have £20 to just hand over...

CatelynStark Tue 12-Mar-13 17:57:37

Well, I suppose 'shy bairns get nowt', as they say but this is one of the cheekiest posts I've ever read, on any forum! hmm

If people are giving away £20's, can I join the queue?

I lost my virginity in 1982. Anybody got a spare one?

montage Tue 12-Mar-13 18:01:12

Perhaps you need to repost and find someone who has a moral objection to using amazon themselves, and then offer them something in return.

The codes are unique but you should be able to recover a lost one by contacting amazon.

Schnarkle Tue 12-Mar-13 18:01:12

I don't have an amazon gift card but if you'd like my credit card details I'll forward them on now confused

and I lost my heart in San Francisco, so if any US Mnetters are reading...

SuckingDiesel Tue 12-Mar-13 18:03:04

Very careless of you, Norks. Have you checked down the back of the sofa?

any body got spares?

Schnarkle Tue 12-Mar-13 18:07:08

I've never noticed this part of MN before. Will have to explore if it's the norm to give away free cash.

Plus3 Tue 12-Mar-13 18:09:06

I've got one for £30 not so subtle boast you can have it once I have spent it. Is that ok?

TrampyPants Tue 12-Mar-13 18:09:53

I lost £50 on a horse that I didn't place a bet on sad who wants to reimburse me? It's not my birthday!

SuckingDiesel Tue 12-Mar-13 18:11:49

grin Norks.

I have plenty of grips to spare. Willing to donate one to the OP.

FancyPuffin Tue 12-Mar-13 18:11:51

At least it's not subtle begging


Right well my washing machine has broken.

Can someone please give me a new one?

If folks are giving stuff away I'll take a bonk off Steve Carell if you don't mind.

SuckingDiesel Tue 12-Mar-13 18:13:59

My diamond shoes need reheeled. Anyone want to help me out?

youmaycallmeSSP Tue 12-Mar-13 18:14:51

Can I join the queue? I'll settle for a tender but it had better be crisp.

Course I can love! You want to pm me and I'll let you know it.

Do you want my credit card details while we're at it?

SuckingDiesel Tue 12-Mar-13 18:15:10

Steve Carell? Here, have my specs Laurie. Your need id obviously greater than mine grin

a crisp and tender WHAT, though SSP?

youmaycallmeSSP Tue 12-Mar-13 18:16:03

Tenner tenner tenner. Although if anyone is willing to give me a tender to do absolutely nothing for any a large sum of money I'm up for that too. Quality service guaranteed.

KateSMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 12-Mar-13 18:16:13

Hello everyone, as is our policy in these situations, we do advise all our members to be aware that not everyone on t'internet is who they say they are.

Although we're awed daily by the astonishing support our members give each other through life's trickier twists and turns, we'd always caution anyone never to give more of themselves to another poster, emotionally or financially, than they can afford to spare.

TrampyPants Tue 12-Mar-13 18:16:16

we could set up a paypal appeal while we are at it, I suppose...

SuckingDiesel Tue 12-Mar-13 18:16:41

Here's my Paypal address. Just in case anyone wants to donate to my diamond shoe reheeling fund:

anybody got some joy in their heart to keep me singing?

Thingiebob Tue 12-Mar-13 18:17:16

If it is a gift card, the Giver can resend it to you, no problem.

TrampyPants Tue 12-Mar-13 18:17:49

Katie, this is a blatant begging thread. not a "I only have one potato and a can of tuna, my dog ate my bank account, how will I feed my 8 children?" thread

youmaycallmeSSP Tue 12-Mar-13 18:18:00

Thanks for the warning MNHQ. The OP really wrung my heart strings so I was just about to send her my last penny. Imagine if you hadn't posted! shock

MNHQ warning.

<puts on serious spectacles> very sensible advice, KateS

youmaycallmeSSP Tue 12-Mar-13 18:19:04

My tender/tenner offer is genuine though wink

FancyPuffin Tue 12-Mar-13 18:19:23

My wallets to small for my £50s anyone got a spare sad

Am also wondering if KateS read the thread.

That op is hilarious!

I've lost my marbles. If anyone's got any spare I'd be grateful.

I am cold. I am naked. Are you there, are you there?

PeachActiviaMinge Tue 12-Mar-13 18:20:43

I lost my waist sad 2 pregnancies and too much chocolate have stolen it away from me. If you donate just 75 each then I can lipo after this baby elephant is born.

I can donate some belly button lint and a stale wotsit to OP's fund.

Blatherskite Tue 12-Mar-13 18:21:18

In this case, I think the MNHQ warning is more of a "yes we've seen it, please stop reporting it now" message than an actual attempt to stop some poor sap parting with £20

Hold on, does just asking strangers for money work? Why the fuck have I not done this confused
This can't be for real, can it?

TrampyPants Tue 12-Mar-13 18:23:22

My nonexistent car is roofless, can someone send me a new one?

I like Bentleys.

AvonCallingBarksdale Tue 12-Mar-13 18:24:54

Umm, my house is in need of some tlc. Alternatively, if anyone could just send me a new one, that'd be great smile

Pascha Tue 12-Mar-13 18:26:02

I actually do have an amazon gift code, I've had it for months, not spent it yet. If you want it, OP, my email is

TrampyPants Tue 12-Mar-13 18:27:03

any donations can be made to:

got my hands, got my feet, got my arms, got my fingers, got my liver, got my blood, got myyyy sseeeeexxxxxxxx

But I aint got no Muller Yoghurt
(because it's YUK)

FancyPuffin Tue 12-Mar-13 18:30:51

I'm very worried about your house situation Trampy

I've got a spare 4 bedroom one, well, the butler usually sleeps in it but i can relegate him to the barn.

Anyone one else waiting to get called a bjullying bjitch?

Blatherskite Tue 12-Mar-13 18:32:41

It would appear that the op is a genuine MNer. Maybe she's having a bad day? she is now

TrampyPants Tue 12-Mar-13 18:35:58

I need at least 6 bedrooms, 1 for my jewels...

Catsdontcare Tue 12-Mar-13 18:37:59

Best OP ever.

MirandaWest Tue 12-Mar-13 18:40:42

You can have physical amazon gift cards by the way so it is possible to lose one. But just asking us a bit rubbish really - we need more sob story...

Um, no. Sorry.

If anyone has a spare throat that they would like to donate to a sad sufferer of tonsillitis please send to

I quite fancy a packet of Jaffa Cakes, if anybody would like to send one.

This thread has got to be the most peculiar I've ever seen on here. smile

TheFallenNinja Tue 12-Mar-13 18:51:39

Spare a gift card for an ex leper ?

GoSuckEggs Tue 12-Mar-13 18:58:37

Well i am taking this as definitive proof that some of you lot are nuts!

OutragedFromLeeds Tue 12-Mar-13 19:00:50

The OP appears to be someone who want us to send her £20. She may not be who she appears to be?! What is she after then? Our souls....stolen via an Amazon giftcard? Blimey.

ReluctantBeing Tue 12-Mar-13 19:04:17

I'd like something too...any amount over £1m will do.

An ex-leper FallenNinja? Did this bloke just come along and heal you without a thought of your trade? Bastard.

HotPinkWeaselWearingLederhosen Tue 12-Mar-13 19:16:55

Amazon will reissue it if the purchaser tells them it has been lost. They are nice like that.

on a serious note though i only have 56000 outstanding on my mortgage and would really like to pay it off so i can afford to take the family to Florida ...

JaquelineHyde Tue 12-Mar-13 19:19:09

Shit just realised I have misplaced my car!

Could one of you kind souls please send a new one (7 seats) many thanks.

ouryve Tue 12-Mar-13 19:21:24

I've had a tedious day with no leccy or Internet and I need wine but don't have any. Donations gratefully accepted, but not cheap crap because I don't like it.

FeijoaVodkaAndCheezels Tue 12-Mar-13 19:25:15

I just read this thread in the vain hope the OP would dare show her face come back. So can someone give me 10 minutes to replace the ones I just lost?

TrampyPants Tue 12-Mar-13 19:48:44

badtaste, no, I assumed it would just come up with "Fuck you, Fuckity Fucker"

youmaycallmeSSP Tue 12-Mar-13 19:53:31

I am crying. Crying! with laughter Can someone give me a tenner now?

TheChaoGoesMu Tue 12-Mar-13 19:58:50

I've lost one of my shoes. Anyone know where it is? Or could you send me one of yours? Its the left one. Size 4.

HotPinkWeaselWearingLederhosen Tue 12-Mar-13 20:02:40

I've got a right in a size 2 if that helps.

Also know a man giving guppies away. Could paint them orange?

Or shall I just give you my bank account details?

TheChaoGoesMu Tue 12-Mar-13 20:15:47

I've got a right in a size 2 if that helps.

well its not perfect, but better than nothing I guess sad

GemmaTeller Tue 12-Mar-13 20:29:22

love a thread like this, you're all so funny smile

cherrycherry when my son was little we secretly replaced his goldfish three times before we told him it was dead.

GemmaTeller Tue 12-Mar-13 20:30:33

btw OP, I've 2p in my pocket I found on the pavement this morning, you can have that (paying it forward)

HotPinkWeaselWearingLederhosen Tue 12-Mar-13 20:34:48

cherrycherry when my son was little we secretly replaced his goldfish three times before we told him it was dead

The first time with a fish, the second with a biscuit, on hindsight the third time you shouldn't have put the gerbil in tank. He was bound to notice its snorkel had fallen off and it had died.

CheeryCherry Tue 12-Mar-13 20:39:11

grin I can't put a gerbil in the tank! It would send the cats wild...and I need to keep them alive too til next Monday...

sleepysox Tue 12-Mar-13 20:40:12

I've lost my marbles- can anyone send me some more?

HotPinkWeaselWearingLederhosen Tue 12-Mar-13 20:40:56

What's happening Monday? Are Tesco branching out with their burgers?

WildThong Tue 12-Mar-13 20:43:27

I have an email address for a Nigerian Prince, he might be able to help, he seems very generous

TheChaoGoesMu Tue 12-Mar-13 21:48:22

I trod on a marble earlier and hurt my foot. You can have that one if you like sleepsox. I dont want it anymore. Will one be enough?

Guess what I found on Blueberry Hill?

TheChaoGoesMu Tue 12-Mar-13 21:54:56

Did you find your thrill?

Convert Wed 13-Mar-13 10:07:58

I have lost a Chinese dwarf hamster.

For lost, read one of my fucking cats has broken then cage and brutally murdered DS1s hamster. He found it dead on the carpet this morning. Does anyone have a spare one? Or some cash to pay for therapy for DS?

Disclaimer, it is not my birthday, however I think one of the cats thought it was theirs.

I've lost my tits since having the DC. Anyone fancy donating some nice plump ones?

Ew Convert that's horrible sad

I have an overabundance of Norkage, flump, help yourself

Norks nobody likes a show-off grin

munchkinmaster Wed 13-Mar-13 13:28:57

There's this place down my way, OP, where they give the books out for free. More than £20 worth. There's a catch somewhere, I think you need to give them back or something. I dunno <helpful>

OP come back. I want to know if you were joking or not.

UnChartered Wed 13-Mar-13 17:50:38
