I guess I still check in to see if Meh can sink further into the depths of junk. Thus far they have never ceased to disappoint. My first purchase was a two pack of 1080p tv’s, followed up by a very nice Canon DSLR. Then the gradual fade began. Now we have reached the level of flea market rejects.
@Hittman I’ve never heard the phrase ‘two pack of tv’s’ before - that’s delightful
@mcanavino My guess is the global economy dumpster fire is a factor at the moment - war in Europe is massively interrupting oil and gas availability and prices there and, though the USA has embraced death over inconvenience as regards pandemic measures, the country that produces the bulk of our goods is still on a zero-Covid train and shutting down (at least in pockets) on the regular. Supply chain disruptions, ongoing medical crises, and crazy inflation don’t create ideal ‘deal a day’ conditions.
@Hittman Your two examples set the bar extremely high. Items like that have NEVER been common or even occasional here. Personally, I’m happy with my ‘high bar’ being a normally $200 Bluetooth speaker, heh.
@PooltoyWolf So does hardcore… And most other stuff, for that matter! I admit to enjoying watching the dumpster fire, in a schadenfreude kinda way. It’s way past time Elon’s worshippers find out he’s not really a god after all.
@ircon96 I want the elongated muskrat out as much as everyone else, but it sucks to see the website that I and so many other people rely on going up in flames. Artists especially. Right now, all image files aren’t loading.
@PooltoyWolf I’m sorry to hear that part of it, as well as any people who dedicated their lives to the company losing their jobs, or the few remaining having to watch the slow-motion train wreck up close. When billionaire asshats throw their wealth around on the whim of the day, there always seem to be plenty of innocent victims, or as they would describe you, “inconsequential.”
@SnDMommy That’s a terrible example to set, kitty! Can you imagine being around a cat that hopped up on nicotine?? Usually, if a cat is smoking, it’s because he let his tail get too close to an open flame.
@ircon96@SnDMommy Or like a kitten I had years ago who got too close to a candle and its whiskers got singed. Actually where my cats are right now while I am out of town one of them managed to singe the whiskers above their eyes and there are no open flames in that household except a gas stove.
@snurfle@werehatrack mmhmm. am woman. have not worn women’s pants on a regular basis since I was… like… 11?12?
have a few pairs for specific occasions but they were expensive.
or yoga style more recently. screw that.
@Skaene@snurfle@werehatrack I have no problem finding inexpensive brand 34" inseam woman’s. Often it isn’t in stores. I find I often have to try on a shorter pair and then order online. Or buy men’s. I’ve done that more than once in the past. If you are just into basic jeans there’s no real difference except which side the zipper zips on (well unless you have a huge butt compared to your waist and then fit can be an issue). And who cares. Cripes who even looks to notice?
I’m not usually one to complain. But, these are awful. I tried one pair on and it felt like I was putting on a pair of stockings. I’m not especially big, and I ordered an XL, just in case these ran small. Well, they do. They really really do.
So, if these come around again, I am going to pass. And, hopefully some small legged people shopping at thrift stores will enjoy these pajama pants!
Or maybe tight pajama pants is a trend? Well, I’m anti.
