I bought a top-of-the-line 50" rear projection HDTV about 6 years ago, which worked flawlessly until the lamp burned out last weekend. After replacing it, I noticed a very slight green tint on the screen. I called up the manufacturer, and it turns out the tint was a defect and there was a class action lawsuit for users experiencing the problem. I was offered a brand new LCD HDTV as a replacement, even though I was way past my warranty, and to top it off they told me to keep my old TV.

I went shopping with my Mum one day. She made me enter a competition I didn't want to enter because all I wanted to do was get home. I never enter any competitions because I never ever win. This time, I did win! I won $1000. To this day I still don't enter any competitions, so my entry/win ratio is still a good one

I bought a dvd for approx $20. A day later, the same store was having a sale of 20% off all dvds. I took it back for a refund with the intention of buying it again for 20% off. I didn't do it straight away though because they would obviously know. So I went to another store to buy it a few days later. I got there and I realised that they dramatically upped the price, so even with the 20% off, I would have paid more than I did the first time. To my surprise though, that was their mistake. And their company policy for price errors is the customer gets it for free (provided they already paid for it). So I paid for it, knowing I'd get it for free after I complain. I complained and got it for free!

I'm usually a very safe driver. In fact I pride myself on it. One night, I was unexpectedly asked to drive my sister to a concert as a favour. The place was about half an hour away, but during the last 5 minutes of the trip I crashed into another car. It cost me an insurance excess of $800. Then, 6 months later, I got my insurance bill. It was an extra $250 than usual, because I had that accident. $1050 it cost me to do this unexpected favour, which I was very unhappy about doing in the first place. Luckily though, during that night my sister found a $100 note on the ground! She gave it to me as a gift. Net cost: $950

The other night I went to my car with my keys, phone and wallet. As I was opening the door, I accidentally dropped my phone in the drain where my car was parked. I tried to open the drain to fish it out but I couldn't. I gave up and accepted that I'd just threw my phone away. As I drove away, I realised my wallet wasn't with me. I drove back home hoping that I'd left it there, but found it on the ground near where my car was. I tried one more time (since I was out of the car again) to get my phone. The drain opened easily! It just never occurred to me at the time to try opening it FROM THE OTHER SIDE. Minutes later it started pooring down rain. It would have ruined my phone for sure.

So broke... lost my bus pass, nothing to eat, lack tuition, job search failure, found another hole in my pants and today my keyboard is broken for the computer upstairs (my only real valueable) in my room.

Everytime I buy Saturday tattslotto, I would usually buy a quick pick. But, I had decided to use my own numbers this time round. I was told I had to buy minimum of four games. So, I filled in the coupon with the exact same set of numbers and stuck to the minimum. It turns out that I won three and a half numbers, which gave me 4 x the winnings!! On a quick pick, I would have lost most times.

I once drove 30 minutes to buy a roof rack for my car. I parked in a 1-hour lot, went inside and picked up the rack, and realized at the register that I forgot my wallet. So I put it back, drove all the way home, drove all the way back, parked in the same spot, and bought it. When I got out I saw a ticket on my window for extended parking in a 1-hour space. I was furious so I drove around looking for the cop, and I actually found him and confronted him. He said he would drop the ticket if I appeared in court because it was too late for him to change it now. I felt a little better, like I had been wronged and made the world right again. But then on the drive home a van kicked up a rock and cracked my windshield. It cost twice as much to repair the windshield.

When I was a little kid I found one of those crane games in an arcade that was overloaded with super bouncy balls. My crane got snagged on the flimsy cardboard divider they put in to stop the balls from falling in. It started bending under the weight of the crane, and then it folded over - and unleashed an avalanche of super bouncy balls. I drained a third of the machine with one quarter. I was the happiest kid in the world.

I went to the public pool one summer and I was the only person there that didn't know everyone else. So they were having a raffle and I bought a couple of tickets, walked out of there with some kid's remote control hummer. NICE!
