Well, how about it? Ever buy something that didn't meet your expectations? What was it? Why did it suck, or not live up to expectations?

I just bought some new briefs that have one irritating flaw. Every time I spread my legs, or sit cross cross, the completely unnecessary hole in the front opens up, and stuff doesn't stay where it is supposed to. I am going to sew this hole closed next time I do laundry, but it's irritating that this wasn't an obvious problem during development.

I bought a performance clutch for my truck a few years ago. $750 later, I had a new clutch sitting on my doorstep. After two weeks of break in, I got to put my foot in it, and was happy to find that the clutch was holding power fine. Well, until I hooked to a 12,000 pound trailer. That trip ended with a ruined clutch and I had to spend another $550 for a second clutch in the same month. On top of that things got busy on the farm, the shop was tied up, and I didn't have time to install it myself, so I had to pay a shop another $500 to install it. I was on the verge of tears when I paid that credit card bill.

I bought a new rice cooker at the start of the semester because my roommate has basically destroyed my old one. Spending $250 dollars on a rice cooker is just as ridiculous as it sounds, and it is not worth the expense.

So with that, please share your experiences with products that haven't met your expectations.

I got a xbox controller for my PC but the thumb sticks were back to front and I couldn't calibrate it.
I also got a joystick and the wiring was badly soldered and insulated.
both were from companies with good reps.

This is pretty much how I feel most times buying fast food. Sometimes I eat it because it is cheap and quick and all that, but I hate fast food these days, I dunno how I even eat it anymore. But yeah, I'll buy something, eat it, and then feel like "Ah, I should have eaten something else instead".

Also, last time I got a whopper, it was the worst one I remember ever having. It was just mediocre. Something about it seemed off. The beef patty seemed thinner than usual, too.

Beats Solo HD. I wasted $200 dollars on a pair of headphones that have the sound quality of a $50 dollar pair of headphones. I'm so glad I know more about music, now. I'm totally happy with my HD598 and Sennheiser Momentum

As someone who drives 3000+ miles a month for work, I can sympathize with that. There are so many nights where I just want to go to bed after I cook dinner, but then I remember how horrible fast food is. It isn't all that cheap either. Luckily, I have made note of all the good Mexican restaurants in my area, and can usually grab a quick bite for under five bucks without taking too much of a detour. The food is always delicious too.

I appreciate good Mexican food. I live in New England, and a lot of Mexican restaurants up here aren't so hot. It isn't one of our fortes for food up here. But recently, in a town close to mine, a Mexican restaurant opened and the food is pretty authentic (still caters to American tastes, but you know what I mean), and I really like the food there. Best Mexican food I've had in New England. Almost all the staff are Mexicans who don't know English well. Which is great. They are from Mexico. They know how to make authentic Mexican cuisine.

Panda Express is good. If I had one nearby, I'd probably eat it a lot. I only see them in food courts around my area.

I was talking about more typical fast food joints, like McDonald's, BK, and Wendy's.

I bought a Wacom tablet, but it turned out to be broken. It was too late to return by the time I tested it. Yes, I was dissatisfied.

I also once bought a couple of autoblogs (when I was 16) thinking it would make me cash. A couple of months later? Yes, I was dissatisfied. Turned out the user was a scam artist who ran away after selling hundreds of shitty autoblogs.
