Money, Business, Post?


#1

How the fuck are people making money on shit like this? Materials, manufacturing, logistics, overheads and finally posting it to me?


#2

Literal slave labour


#3

5!
That’s like when I had to buy a packet of radiator keys (about 5). Why would I need 5?


#4

maybe they’re not in it for the money?


#5

But even if you factor out the horrible shit, a second class stamp costs more than that.


#6

Radiator keys are in the top ten lost items in the UK along with the odd keys for gas meter boxes.


#7

deflated footballs are quite troubling. So much better and comforting when they are completely full


#8

Let’s keep kids active by ensuring fully pumped balls!


#9

Probably dumping in loss leaders so they’ve got some legitimate goods to cover the naughties on the same boats?


#10

We’ve gotten around the issue of losing meter cupboard keys by having meter cupboards with locks that don’t actually work.


#11

gas installer gave me a free key!
I mean he overlooked that the flue from the boiler was installed dangerously, but you can’t run a man down that gives you a free gas box key


#12

Why are they locked if the keys are universal?

Fuck I have just blown this case wide open!


#13

Guys?


#14

What?


#15

If you have 5 radiators and want to bleed them all at once/


#16

Why do gas meter boxes have a lock on them which requires a key which happens to be universal to open them? What is the point of them being locked? Would a latch not suffice.

What if everyone had the same front door key and lock? Would there be any point in that? Would a latch not suffice.

As previously mentioned I feel as though I have blown this case wide open and may be staring into the abyss.


#17

You wanna be careful saying these sorts of things, I wouldn’t be surprised if the CIA were on their way to your gaff


#18

I have a non-universal lock so will be ok.

Might fit my own to the gas meter box.


#19

I think the gas meter lock is because science has proven that people instinctually want to kick the shit out of gas meters, but when they think about it for a few minutes, they realise it’s a bad idea. If there was just a latch, it’d be like pop & BOSH, but with the need for a key which is on-average the most lost item in the UK, then by the time they’ve got the key, their anger has dissipated somewhat.
