To think Amazon dash is a bit shit?

I should start by saying I love a gadget. The more overpriced and not that good the better (see iPhones various).

So OF COURSE I wanted one of these.

We're always running out of liquid soap and as the demo thing showed liquid soap this looked promising. Except you can't buy liquid soap.

Or washing up liquid (despite fairy being listed).

Or toothpaste.

Or coffee beans (ok it was a long shot but no soap, toothpaste of fairy liquid? It was a wild card).

I could order men's razors or Durex (seriously who Amazons Johnnies??!) or incontinence pads or a full set of water-fucking-colours but stuff normal people need? Apparently not.

DH showed me the ad for this earlier.

I like a gadget too, but the available products sound shit! Must tell him in case we run out of water colours....

Bog roll?

Could you imagine the state of one of those buttons after a few weeks next to the bog? And, in a modern 3 bog house, which one do you stick it next to? Family bathroom? Downstairs loo?

DH was wondering if they had plans to tie it into drone deliveries, so you'd realise you'd run out of condoms and conveniently have a package dropped in the middle of your lawn an hour later.

I love a gadget too and was also excited earlier when I looked into this, but apart from all the products being slightly odd things to have, if they;re supplied by Amazon Pantry you have to pay a delivery charge, thus completely going against the reason I signed up to Amazon Prime in the first place - the free delivery!

Dh and I were talking about this. He says he is going to make one that texts me "bitch, you need to get to aldi". Far cheaper grin

So wait a minute; you're down to the last sheet on the loo roll, you press a button and lo and behold, a fresh new roll appears outside your bathroom window? Wow, just wow.

Play Doh dash button. 😂😂😂

Kreesh- my husband and children believe this magic exists.

Kreesh Up to 24 hours later, apparently. That's a long stint waiting on the bog...best get that magazine rack stocked up grin

Yeah who the fuck has a play doh emergency? Quick, we need MORE crap to rub in and ruin the carpet hmm

MovingOnUpMovingOnOut Wed 31-Aug-16 23:04:26

But don't worry, we can document the scene in a set of Derwent pastels...

I'd pay for a button to make the play doh go away. ..

You can only get Andrex in 45s as far as loo roll goes! A good idea if more varieties of actual essentials were available.

If I had a loo roll button I would put it in the cupboard where we store it and then when it's the 2nd to last roll it will be pressed grin

I'd like one for Tresemme 1litre bottles and Cbfm refills. They're the only things I buy from Amazon

I wish they'd do one for getting change for your bus fare. I'm sick of having to traipse up the other end of the road to buy a can of pop just so I can break a fiver.
