Weirdest thing you've found in an Ebay package

Postby Mr. Plow » Tue Dec 08, 2009 4:12 pm

I'm sure those of you who are like me and purchase boatloads of discs off Ebay have gotten some "bonuses" (intentional or otherwise) with your discs. I thought it would be fun to see what you all have gotten. I'll go first:

Today I opened up a package with a couple USDGC 4x Glow Rocs in it and thought it smelled a little smoky. Slightly annoyed that the two discs I purchased for $35/each reeked of smoke (NOT cigarette smoke BTW), I threw the box down. Hearing something rattling inside, I picked it back up and saw a twig in the box. Let's just say upon further examination it wasn't a twig, but a marijuana stem. LOL. Was this person really out of it, or intentionally throwing illegal "extras" in my box? I'm going to write them a message and find out! :twisted:

On a nicer, less comical note someone I purchased a Glowfly from last week threw in 2 Rocs and some homemade barbecue sauce for free. That was pretty rad! :D

OK: There was a marijuana stem in my box.
Not OK: I got really high the last time I played disc golf and threw my putter into the lake.

Thanks for the clarification. I just didn't want to get booted from the forum and was unsure I could say that. Now I know, and knowing is half the battle!

This made me crack up. I was trying to find a way I could reference the stem in my feedback comment, but didn't want to be an absolute d*ck.

I was thinking: "I paid for two discs and got free marijuana stems!!! Thanks!"

Maybe a new category on Sleepy's scale should be condition: 9.75 "unthrown, but used as a rolling tray".

That's a hilarious pic but what's he's on? :-D
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Sometimes they come from the manufacturer that way.

But on-topic, the weirdest thing I got was a piece of paper outlining the cash and checks paid to KC's club. Besides Timko, there were a few other names I knew. Weird definition of "scratch paper"


The weirdest thing that came in to the Mill warehouse was, in an Innova shipment, one of the box dividers had a plastic recipe written on it, with "try this, if it works, run it". Of course that box divider was used in a shipment to a Mill dealer. No photos of it, unfortunately.

I used to work at an outdoors store, and at one time, there was some sort of factory recall on some of the camping stove fuel we had. The manufacturer sent us this big container...basically a trash can with a screw on lid, and a bunch of vermiculite. Vermiculite, if you're not familiar with it, is an absorbent material (used here to sop up any fuel that might have leaked out), and looks a lot like kitty litter.

After we packed in the cans of fuel, and topped off the canister with the vermiculite, I mentioned something about how it looked like the world's largest litter box. Being the creatively bored bunch of employees that we were, one guy grabbed a few Clif bars, unwrapped them, and rolled them in his hands to shape them into very convincing replicas of trophies from a high fiber diet (the chunks of peanut were a subtle touch). We threw them on top of the vermiculite, sealed the canister, and sent it off. We never heard anything back, but I truly hope that made some warehouse guy's day more interesting.
