.. to stop you making rash purchases or bids for items on ebay under the influence of much needed glass bottle of friday night wine blush

Looks like I maybe the owner of some new boots on sunday wink unless someone does the same tonight!

Tee2072 Sat 29-Sep-12 16:07:23

Or post on MN....

Likewise, mobile phones.

McHappyPants2012 Sat 29-Sep-12 16:13:45

Agreed I tend to not even go on eBay after a drink way to deadly

Besom Sat 29-Sep-12 16:15:29

Or decide that your ex boyfriend probably really wants to hear from you.

Brilliant idea!

MrsTerrysChocolateOrange Sat 29-Sep-12 16:17:03

Nope. Skill testing questions. What is 14 x 12? Then if you were too drink to eBay, you couldn't. I have spoken.

RosemaryHoyt Sat 29-Sep-12 16:22:17

True. Posting maudlin, sentimental posts in a place where the subject is ikely o read thm. Stupid, stupid.

Totally agree

Three xmases ago, after best part of a bottle of Baileys, I decided that I absolutely must have some sprout racing crackers from Hawkins Bazaar, and to get free postage I order a sudoku rubix cube.

Which is still sitting on the shelf in its original packaging because it would be impossible to do and I cant think of anyone who would want it!

I think mobile phones should have an auto shut down if it sense alcohol and only allows you to call 999 and a taxi!

Mrsjay Sat 29-Sep-12 16:26:40

I switch my mobile off and leave it somewhere usually beside my bed when im drinking I once sent a text to the wrong person blush I was gossiping about somebody and sent it to them shock It didnt say their name but I did get a fright she said erm what was that about,

I don't usually go on ebay but i do come on mumsnet a bit tipsy and talk utter rubbish

CalamityJones Sat 29-Sep-12 16:32:10

No! I bought a £70 Lego toyshop last night whilst under the influence of a) several bottles of Rioja and b) Mumsnet. I am very excited about it.

Mrsjay Sat 29-Sep-12 16:35:18

Did you know you wanted the lego before you opened the wine grin

CalamityJones Sat 29-Sep-12 16:48:12

I did, and by bottle number two there was no point fighting it anymore. The knowledge that I am soon going to have a Lego Christmas Toyshop with a snowman and a jack-in-the-box and carol singers and snowmen got me through a fairly testing hangover this morning.

CalamityJones Sat 29-Sep-12 16:49:59

Multiple snowmen apparently. Maybe I'm still pissed. Hic.

Mrsjay Sat 29-Sep-12 16:50:43

you know you could have a whole lego winter wonder land arriving soon

CalamityJones Sat 29-Sep-12 16:52:02

I seriously cannot wait. I keep looking at pictures of it online and laughing to myself. I need help.

Convert Sat 29-Sep-12 16:55:45

I agree, some wanker bid on my eBay item last night, then decided it wasn't actually the one they wanted and the next highest bidder had already bought another one so I'm going to have to relist it. Aaarrrgghhh! It was very clear in the description so they were either drunk or a twunt.

Schlock Sat 29-Sep-12 16:58:19

Laptops should definitely come with breathalysers. So should mobile phones.

I don't think I've ever posted drunk on MN. Oh no, I stick to real people that I know in real life and do it on facebook hmm

OldCatLady Sat 29-Sep-12 17:02:41

Haha love this!!

A few weeks ago I decided to call my ex boyfriend... Who I broke up with two years ago, he emigrated and is now engaged, oops!

I also once dirty text my personal trainer when I was drunk, seemed totally appropriate at the time!

EyesCrossedLegsAkimbo Sat 29-Sep-12 17:11:07

Sells well in Korea apparently.

EyesCrossedLegsAkimbo Sat 29-Sep-12 17:11:42 even!

email programmes should simply refuse to operate after 2 glasses of wine/11 o'clock/take your pick. At least in the olden days, you could tear up a letter you'd written. Now - by the morning, the email's long gone and you have to suffer the consequences!


McHappyPants2012 Sat 29-Sep-12 18:42:28

A few months ago was very drunk went and ordered a trampoline( not that it would of fitted in the garden), luckily it wasn't processed yet so was able to cancel.

SPsFanjoHarboursDeadCatsAgain Sat 29-Sep-12 18:49:14

I went for an afternoon drink with a friend when it was sunny and drank more then expected.

Totally pissed we decided to go shopping around town. We went to primark and spent at least 30 pound each in there.

We must have had a competition to see who could buy the worse clothes as I had a union Jack dress, think Geri in Spice Girls! A horrid bikini and some horrible underwear!

My mate had some legging with bad patterns, some huge sun glasses with gems all over them, shoes that were sizes too big!

We had to go back the next day and get a refund.

So bank cards should have a breathe analyser!

Maat Sat 29-Sep-12 18:51:10

MrsJay I sent a gossipy text to the subject of the gossip rather than a friend.

The worse of it was, I was sat next to her at the time blush

My heart sunk and I saw her look at her phone when she received the text - but then she didn't say anything.

I just come clean and apologised. Luckily it was only light gossip and nothing nasty but I have learnt my lesson.
