    Have you ever won a prize that is completly useless for you?.

    I entered a raffle at my kids school once and I won, what did I win, a non transferable prize of a full makeover, including hair and make up by a professional :lol:.

    Why the hell was non transferable, I have no idea.

    So anybody else ever won a prize only to dissapointed that it has no use for you what so ever.

    Yeah, several times.

    The thing is what makes me happy is the priniciple of winning than the prize itself. :lol:

    I just giveaway the useless stuff. Makes other people happy!

    Yeah I do love the winning and would have loved to give the prize to someone but as I said it was transferable which just does not make any sense to me.

    I have in the past won a litre bottle of Vodka and given away as I cant drink it, the person I gave it to was over the moon.

    My brother found it wet in the pants funny that I had won makeover, for a long time he kept asking when I was going to have it done,lol.

    I once won a hot water tank for our attic. I can't remember how, but I did.

    I'm sure you knew that was going to be the prize and that's why you joined the raffle in the first place!

    :haha:

    Well give it a try, maybe you can use it after all. In case they make an exception, bring your ex with you when you go to that salon appointment. :)

    I think it has expired now but for a while there I did think about it, I was very drunk but I did think about it.
    That is the trouble with raffles you never you can win anything from a box of chocs to a car but I always end up with something that I will never use.

    As a kid I entered a raffle at school, the top prize was a set of BMX pads and helmet, I wnated to win those so bad, I did win but not first prize I got a box of Turkish Delight which I had never tried.
    As you can imagine as a kid winning a big box of sweets was almost as good as the pads, right up until I bit into one, that stuff is just plain nasty, dissapointment again.

    I won the most ridiculous-looking stuffed bird at one of those carnival games at the fair a few years back. It's so silly, I have to keep it just because it makes me laugh just looking at the thing!

    What could be more useless than a pink, furry, goggle-eyed plush bird? :lol:

    I have won a few things that useless to me and I usually give them to someone else. Last year I won some music downloads for Rhapsody I gave the codes to my friend who uses it.

    I've won some things that are useless to me before.

    I won an old woman's rain cap once (the things that old women wear on their heads to keep their heads dry) and so I gave it to my granny.

    I wont some kitchen utensils when I was like 14, so I gave them to my parents for the kitchen.

    I've won a heap more stuff that is useless but they were just two examples.
    If I win something I find useless I give it to people that can and will use it so someone can get the full use out of it.

    Years ago when I about ten they used to hold a bingo game every week at the local church hall, I tagged along with my mum as I knew there was always sweets floating the table.

    My mum gave me one card to play to keep me silent I guess and I actually concentrated long enough to win, on a single line, the prize a set of steak knives:shake:.

    The only good thing was my nan bought them from me, for about 2 quid I think.
    Honestly who in there right mind would give a set of steak knives to a ten year old, they could have fuged it and given something else from the prize table.
