WE’VE probably all felt the temptation after a few drinks to buy something we shouldn’t.
Usually it’s a dodgy-looking kebab after a night out, or a top we’d been eyeing up for months but were waiting until payday.
SHPOCK People are sharing the drunken items they purchased online – and trying to flog them on Shpock
But these embarrassed Brits went a step further, buying items that they have absolutely no use for – and soon ended up regretting.
Many have taken to boot sale app Shpock to try to get rid of them – and their stories behind them are pretty hilarious.
Last year one boozed-up bloke went so far as to buy an 18ct white gold diamond engagement ring, in “an eager moment of drunken bliss”.
In an advert posted by his sister Kate, he admitted: “Having sobered up and been forced to consider the full ramifications I have now decided that this is not the right time to start this particular journey of my life.
SHPOCK He admitted it wasn’t the right time to pop the question – though it was a seriously pricey realisation
“Hopefully a more certain person can profit off my eagerness!”
Given he’s selling it for £1,450, that’s a pretty expensive mistake to make.
Another Shpock user called Matt is trying to flog a Polish ornamental axe that he bought in a “drunken state”.
Having been lurking in the back of his closet for years, he’s now having to get rid of it as he’s moving in with his girlfriend.
He wrote on the ad: “She is paranoid that someone will use it on us. MUST SELL.”

There’s also a disco light for sale on the app, bought by James – though he has “no recollection” of the purchase, which was originally a set of five.
He doesn’t totally regret it, writing on the ad: “Must have thought it was a good idea at the time, one in each room perhaps?
“Ayways aside from the banter I’ve come to the conclusion they are quite good. They spin, change colour – red, green, blue and multiple variants of each, flash, jump to the beat of the music and light up the room nicely for that party dance feel.
“Fitted two in the living room, sold two and was keeping this last one spare. But open to close offers.”
SHPOCK James doesn’t regret buying the disco lights, but admits he probably didn’t need five
Rugby fans may be interested in this regretful purchase, made by Sarah.
Writing on Shpock, she explained that the ladies England watch, which has never been worn, was a “drunken purchase at Twickenham”.
We’re pretty sure she paid more than £15 for it at the time!

One of the most useless drunken purchases turned out to be this rowing machine, bought by Paul who “hates exercise”.
On the advert he admitted: “A drunken purchase from Argos for £76.99 on New Year’s Day!
“Assembled but never been used, I hate exercise!”
SHPOCK Paul bought this rowing machine while inebriated – and later realised he hates exercise
Another Shpoker – Ketan, of Nottingham – bought a pair of size 10 Jordan 4 OG ’89 bred trainers that he’s never worn.
He explained: “I paid $185 (£135) plus £20 shipping and customs charges for them. They’re brand new immaculate, unauthorised authentic.
“I’m selling them because I liked them a lot more when I was drunk and ordered them than I do now.”
SHPOCK These trainers looked much better with beer goggles on
