I'm sorry, but you are very sad.

Do I have to remind you it is still October.

<ducks and runs>

YANBU

That catalogue is pure evil so I have to leave it outside on my electric cupboard for immediate collection.

I don't need to be reminded of how empty my life is without being the proud owner of a plastic knuckle duster that allows me to carry 5 shopping bags at once.

<< Almost relents and buys one >>

I am drawn night after night to the Whizz Mop adverts on the telly.

MaryZcary Sun 28-Oct-12 00:22:06

I want to see it now, after Worra' description grin

I am so sad we don't get one in our area. I have to remember to ask my Mum to get me a new jam jar opener and a soft broom for Xmas, when she's finished poring over her catalogue. (she is always giving me tea in some dodgy make which she buys from some other doorstep seller!)

We get Kleeneze and it's just not the same. On the bright side, though, there are some neat Jesus's to put in your garden as memorials.

Mary, click at your own fucking peril. You know you want this baby...

I think I'll wait until the morning Worra [wibble]

dh will kill me. Night smile

WorraLiberty Sun 28-Oct-12 00:35:19

Night Mary but for the record I don't believe you're going to bed.

You're going to surf the net all night long looking for Betterware porn and then delete the history aren't you?

stuffit leave the catalogue outside and learn to live with the fact you don't and never will own a Rudolf bin freshener sad

YRDNBU - it's the funniest thing EVER!

missnevermind Sun 28-Oct-12 00:41:31

You Tease. grin
I thought it was a link to the catalogue

WorraLiberty Sun 28-Oct-12 00:48:35

No way miss shock

If I linked to the catalogue, both my family and yours wouldn't eat til January at the earliest grin

LineRunner Sun 28-Oct-12 01:00:30

What the actual fuck is that training handle bag thing?

ProbablyDoingTheWrongThing Sun 28-Oct-12 01:09:58

I have a plastic knuckle duster, it gets cracked open every christmas for my annual shopping trip blush

RandallPinkFloyd Sun 28-Oct-12 01:10:14

Betterware is just an impossible pipe-dream for this poor single parent.

I long for the day when a significant lottery win will enable the purchase of the Big Slipper, an Elvis wall clock and an array of oddly shaped tupperware that enables every food stuff in existence to be cooked using only a microwave.

bearcub1 Sun 28-Oct-12 01:30:53

Shhhhhh! I have bought from betterwear. I bought sheet straps. They are really good and used every single night for the last 5 1/2 years. (they stop sheets coming off your mattress) honestly, life changing. Or was it kleeneasy? Either way, very good. smile

CaliforniaLeaving Sun 28-Oct-12 01:35:00

Oh no I googled Wizz mop. Now I want one. blush

Campari Sun 28-Oct-12 02:23:49

My mum always dismisses the newly-delivered Betterware catalogue with disgust and contempt, calling it "cheap useless crap no-one should part with a penny for.."

Half an hour later & she'll have put her name down for a singing biscuit barrel and a plastic midget for the garden.

Campari Sun 28-Oct-12 02:26:09

Oh, and by the way, that shopping bag knuckle duster? Not a sexy look!!!

brighthair Sun 28-Oct-12 03:19:41

Oh God I love it. It's like porn blush
A bath, cup of tea and the catalogue. Although I'm weird as me and a colleague take great delight in the biggest tat you can find. You know like the adverts in Sunday paper magazines? "Realistic robin clock that chirps on the hour complete with vomit inducing poem and available in limited edition for just 965 instalments" grin
One reduced me to tears that I had to go out the room because I was weeping with laughter and couldn't speak

cheekydevil Sun 28-Oct-12 06:22:24

The knuckle duster bag carrier thingy should be sold alongside knee and elbow pads because if I carried 5 bags in one hand I would fall over.....unless I buy two? hmm

OlaRapaceFru Sun 28-Oct-12 06:27:46

What on earth is a "wipe-clean sink skirt"? confused

DP nearly has a heart attack every time a Lakeland catalogue plops through the letterbox. On one occasion he wrote on the envelope, in red pen, 'PLEASE DO NOT OPEN' grin

OlaRapaceFru Sun 28-Oct-12 06:36:19

OMG, I've just looked at their online catalogue - that wipe-clean sink skirt is utterly hideous, a bit Hyacinth Bouquet. OP, YADBU wanting one of those. shock

But, during my search for that, I found this wine glass chiller sleeve - every MNer who likes the odd glass of white wine should have one wink
