My day: Get up at 6:00, shower, wake everyone up. Load husband, two kids, and 200 lbs worth of dogs into the minivan and drive 3 hours to my mom’s to celebrate her birthday. Drive three hours home making it into the house at 11:40 pm. Unload the van, let the dogs pee, feed the cats, fix the dogs’ dinner, unload the cooler and set the coffee maker for the morning. Rinse out all the cat and dog bowls and realize the kitchen clock says 11:59. Run to the living room and dig my phone out of my purse. Unlock it, load Chrome and Meh, click buy it, pass the robot test, and win a Fuko! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MEH!
![My Fourth of July ] This is what I get lately …rain…yes since last year actually and it does rain on my parade so to speak…So I’ll try again in the morning to get one but Happy birthday Meh anyways…
Happy Birthday Meh…I want one, been a loyal customer on woot and here on Meh, without one win…why u may ask well i gots to work, last night was law n order night so i missed the hoopla for the birthday bash. This morning i will be driving at that time and u know driving and texting don’t mix…So purty pleeze for 1 Fukobukuro i will never ask again…
@whistlingwillyI always checked. Even at Midnight, even when furious F5s literally brought up the page in 2 second intervals, the stupid buy screen would hose up, often within 10 seconds of midnight, and eventually time out to “Sorry, sold out”
And it’s not like my internet is 2 tin cans and a string! It’s FIOS, in a fairly unpopulated area.
I clicked buy it when the clock had just turned to 8 but the ordering process went so slow on the “I am not a robot” phase that I lost out. I have VMP for years and I am feeling sad and dissed. I can’t come back at 4.
Sweet jesus… my second and final Fuko… the first was ordered on the day my marriage ended… the second (and last) on my first day without a job in 14 years… it’s a good thing the Fuko is no more, else I can’t imagine what horrors it would wreak on my life.
@OnionSoup My connection is average. I guess I got lucky with the captcha this time (5 road clicks before verify). Otherwise I have pretty much done the same thing and I usually still get to hit “just buy it already” only to be told we are all sold out.
@OnionSoup Superhuman reflexes, average connection, and I shrink the screen so I don’t have to scroll down the popout. And you’re supposed to submit one name at a time. The suggestions are a lot of fun.
damn I went in as soon as it went live and ordered it but then it was telling me lots of people were buying it so try again and then when I clicked try again, it kept saying I needed to prove I wasn’t a robot even though that part was already checked and confirmed so when I refreshed it was sold out
So I set my alarm to buy one of these fuku bags like I always try and do and been unsuccessful. It takes forever to process. It reboots me, tells me they are waiting till 4pm for members (which I have been for a while now and have made tons of purchases) and now it says sold out. I’m beyond pissed. Feel like canceling my membership all because of a stupid 5 dollar bag. Sucks to not have loyalty reciprocated. We make Meh.
It would be nice if u remembered that 8am est is 5am pst. Which goddamn blows when u wake up to buy and after hitting the fukn green button and watching it refill over and over then asks if I am a fuckin robot over and over, which by the way I already answered, it then says sold out which it wasn’t when I first hit the GD GrEEn BuTTon. Moral of story …… don’t F with a man at 5am he might be a bit prickly.
Well second time wasn’t a charm for me…aww meh—Rainy days and Mondays always get me down —and it’s Monday and it’s raining and it’s Mehs fourth birthday so it’s fitting don’t you think?..Meh the Fourth be with you—(And a note to self—Buy a boat or buy more meh stuff and duct tape it all together to float down my street)…
@jacqui1713 damn…not my day - went to rename the fuko…and that’s down! Was thinking a good name would be “SUCKs when you miss it deal”…or how about “Not everything works…f&$'in up…kranky…onry (NEWFUKO)”.
So I thought, let me restart my old computer (2011 Mini) so all memory/cache is clear and only my browser is running.
I restarted it at 7:54… at 7:58 it was at this point . It then was at the sign-in screen and I started the browser. It took until just after 8:00 to be up and me on meh.
I had also been on my phone, just in case… but was met by picture captcha. I am never picture captcha’d!!! Harder on a phone when the pictures are so small. After 4 or 5 round of images, I got back to the check box and watched the green bar.
While I was waiting, I also tried on the now up meh on my computer… got to check mark captcha, and had no pictures.
Came back as no longer available.
The new name suggestion thread is not working either, so can’t give mine at the moment… guess will have to wait til 4pm for the real unlucky bag to be maybe be mine.
Happy birthday Meh hope your day is going better than mine. First I find out that my family’s flight is cancelled. Then I miss a full bag. So I have a 9hr drive instead of a 90 min flight. Thanks Allegiant air
@wew It was my own foolishness, but I really would have liked to have won one. Very sentimental. I’m sure I would have cried when I successfully checked out, and then I would have cried when I opened it at home.
But if a few people got one that never got one before, that’s a fair trade-off.
Guess I’ll head over to the ‘rename the fuku’ thread…
Set my alarm for early this morning to try my luck… and dang it if it didn’t work! Bonus - went right back to sleep after ordering my 2nd ever (and last) Fuko bag. Now the wait for utter mediocrity begins. Thanks meh and HBD!
@blackadder It looks like I signed up for VMP with my first order in August 2014. In the 47 months since then, I’ve only placed 19 orders so I definitely wasn’t getting my money’s worth–I don’t think I ever used the 4pm VMP reserved stock either. But I was always happy to pay the $5/mo. Oh well.
I didn’t try last night and this morning because I knew I would be too slow. At age 75 my reaction time isn’t what it used to be! However, I thought maybe there would be so few VMP’s left I might have a chance. lol Still too slow! I’m probably won’t even try again.
@Thumperchick wait, what just happened. I just went to buy the Foku bag and tee as a consulation prize - so I could pretend I got a Foku. Then I saw that other thing. Did you do that other thing. I’m so happy about that other thing. I LOVE EVERYONE RIGHT NOW.
I get two fuko bags in a row without any kind of server lag or anything and now this bag is shipping the next day? WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH MEH! Actually, if this is how things are going to be then I’m not going to be asking any more questions. Carry on.

@Targaryen I will! I am ready-ing the new place for the Fuko! It will be displayed on the floor, assessed by the tortoise, and photos will be taken, doctored and presented to you as an offering of gratitude (translation: there will be a picture of a tortoise in a box and the side of my face … I will add glitter! Meh FTW)
@PocketBrain mine went to middle Tennessee, which is 4 hours west of me, to northern Ohio, which is 9 hours north of me, then to North Carolina, 3 hours east of me. Then it finally arrived here. I understand these packages are flying coach and they just take whatever route is most convenient, but I can’t see how it’s economical.
@capguncowboy Are you in TN? I am in East TN. Mine seem to be taking two different routes. Some are going through Memphis and then to NC and some hit Goodlettsville, TN, then KY, and then to OH and now are in Concord, NC.
Allll apologies. Got my first (and last) Fuko. This is after I THOUGHT that the purchase hadn’t gone through. I guess I must’ve frantically clicked past the page where it said “YOU WIN!!”. Anyway, what a friggin haul - for my wife and daughters anyway!
1x Fuko bag
1x Large Gift bag (with a princess
2x AMU Socks
1x Royale Deluxe Trio (Hot comb, curler etc)
1x Adrienne Vittadini Tote bag
I got 2 today one had a Foodsaver grande with vacuum containers and a coupla rolls of bags and all the parts, if it doesn’t work I at least got the vacuum hose that I didn’t have and needed
deck of cards
a meh usb charger sticky thing
and a fuko bag
The other one was an AOC monitor with a cracked screen, Can’t believe you spent 25 bucks to send that.
deck of cards
meh usb charger stick thing
and a scrunched up fuko bag.
I got three of my contest boxes today. I have to say, I’m gobsmacked. No photos yet, I need to take a Xanax to calm down.
So, there were two good sized boxes and one smaller box. The smaller box rattled. My mind went back to the warning of the trash boxes. I saved that one for last.
The two larger boxes were absolutely wonderful. Two brand new foodsaver systems. My current foodsaver system was purchased right here on Meh. They both had the Mr & Mrs Who cards, the little TOCC flash drives, and Fuko bags. Nice haul just for playing games, amiright?
Then I open up the rattling box. Nice haul.
Motorola Wi-fi Home Camera with smart tag
Truebuds wireless bluetooth earbuds
Ten foot smartphone bungee cable
Then there was the thing that rattled. Okay, Meh, I get it, I’m old, I don’t hide that at all. I got my Medicare card today. Can’t use it yet, but I’m makin’ a list.
The rattling box was some sort of beauty thing. I put all of the pieces back together and place them neatly in their slots. Then, I do the normal human curiosity thing and look it up online. I can only find it in one place. eBay.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT WHO BUYS THIS STUFF? WHO HAS THIS KIND OF MONEY?
I’m reeling at the mere enormity of it. I feel really poor right now…but blessed. Seriously, blessed. And I need the smelling salts…
@compunaut I found where it probably came from - Morningsave back in May. It was there for $49. That seems a lot more reasonable.
I don’t use face cream I figure I should have started thirty years ago, why start now. I have a bottle of Oil of Olady that I’ve had for probably at least ten years. I can’t stand the feel of stuff on my face, so the cost of creams and potions is something I’m clueless about. That MSRP was just nuts!
Got my Fuko today. Can’t complain for $5, but I will anyway.
Backpack - Couldn’t finish asking my daughter if she wanted it and she grabbed it out of my hands. OK, that made it worth the $5.
“Button” power bank - Yep, a power bank that looks like an enormous button. Hey, I don’t care what they look like, when I need to charge something.
Facial masks - to eliminate wrinkles.
Fuko bag - Hey, who doesn’t need one?
Defective Titan JUXT smartwatch - Well, the smartwatch features might work. (It’s charging at the moment) But the hour hand is off. When the minute hand is on 12, the hour hand is already 1/3 of the way to the next number. So as long as I don’t want to tell time with my smartwatch, all is fine.
Received my Fuko a week ago right before I went on vacation. I found a large AOC box waiting on the porch. I eagerly opened it up to find a 24" G-Sync monitor and the original shipping label from sears to some guy named Mohamed. When I got back from vacation, I hastily powered it on to be greeted with flashing colors. It was stuck in the factory test mode. After a bit of googling, I found the button combo to exit the test mode and now have a working monitor. Thanks for the great Fuko!
YASSS!! THE MEH OVERLORDS HAVE SPOKEN AND A MEH IS ON THE WAY! With so much happening in my life right now there’s so much excite for this. Thx meh! My prayers to the great and powerful Irk have been granted.
