Have you ever been conned?
 
Well have you? I've been conned many times. I was conned today, and I'm still PISSED about it. :lol::tape: Here's what happened:

So I was doing Christmas shopping in some precinct. Around this time of year you always get those special stalls selling random stuff on like cartwheel things. So I was walking past one of them and this lovely French woman came up to me with some weird looking cushion and asked if I wanted to try it. Before I got the chance to say no and run away, she pressed it against my back and I felt this amazing tingling/vibrating sensation and was like "WOW, that's so nice!" I was told the cushion contained millions of micofibres that vibrate back and forth thus causing the vibrations... so, Dumbass Impulsive Buyer here bought two of the biggest ones (I thought they'd make nice gifts for g'prents!) :o:o. I got back home a while ago and decided to try one of them out on my aching back(;)). I pressed and pressed for like 5 minutes. No vibrations. Tried the other one. No vibrations. Tried the first one again. Got my brother to press against me. THEY DIDN'T VIBRATE!!! The bitch must have had a mini vibrator in her hand as she pressed it against my back. ARGH. :mad:

Me = :smash:

I've also been conned into buying geniune quality aftershave at some show.

And a magic carpet cleaner.

And a magic potato peeler.

And a dancing dog from Blackpool.

:sad:

Have you ever been conned? Did the snakehouse con you into buying Cake's coconut house.

lmao.

I have been conned once. i made a thread about it a while back. it's actually a shame because i am a little bitter towards people who ask for money, and they ruin it for the people who actually need it.

I once got sold a Big Issue for &#163;2 - YES THAT'S &#163;2, which was &#163;1 more than the asking price, or a 100% markup!! - by a shady tramp who I later realised had no official Big Issue seller badge. Ooh, I was so mad that night! :armed: :mad: :armed: :mad:

Nope. Cause snakes need somewhere to hide out in. I was going to buy a more expensive cave-esque house for him but they told me to just buy the coconut house with him being so small at the moment. I don't get conned. :)

Yes, once I bought what I thought was CK One from a street hustler on 34th st (NYC) for $5. When I actually look at the label it reads "UNO." :(

I conned you just now and you didn't even know. Having ninja blood is rather valuable.

Hey now! :(

The funny part is.. I'm not a gullible person. The Xmas shopping spirit and the live orchestra must have clouded my judgement. :ras:
