You know how we always bitch about things that we can’t own? Like literally accept that, we always do. A good example would be an iPhone. You may bitch about your friend’s brand new iPhone, but deep inside, most of us want one. Nevertheless, then there are things that literally are expensive, we do bitch about them, but we don’t wanna own a bit of them because they are of no use.
And herein we list out 10 of those expensive but useless things that you would not want to own even if given for free.
1. Tea Bag
Yes, the simplest of things in the world can also be hella expensive because shauk baadi cheez hai, and this $14,000 tea bag is one of them. Made in the honour of the 75th anniversary of the PG Tips by jeweler company Boodles, the bag is studded with 280 diamonds. Also, it contains tea leaves inside the same. Well, yes British are serious about tea, but I never knew this serious.
2. Diamond Contact Lenses
I guess the girl in your life would be really pissed if you bring her this $ 15,000 contact lens, because first, it’s a lot of money and second, it looks scary. Trust me when someone said diamond is a girl’s best friend, they didn’t mean this. Gold plated and with 18 diamonds, these lenses are definitely going to give you the spark your eyes need but not the spark you want.
3. Glace Luxury Ice Cubes
These ice cubes don’t melt or something? I have no idea but all we know is that they cost $6.5 apiece. Meaning a packet of 50 tasteless ice cubes will cost you $325. Who the hell comes up with such ideas and who are these people buying the same?
4. Gold Plated Staples
Yes, you read it right, there are these gold plated staples and I don’t know who uses them but I surely know who doesn’t. Me. Nevertheless, if you crave these gold plated staples, they might cost you $210 for 24 pieces. And we are not friends if you spend that much money on staples.
The world’s most expensive pizza is sold in the pizzeria of Nino’s Bellissima Pizza in New York. The stuffing it entertained consisted of cream fish, chive-onions, four different kinds of Petrossian caviar, the thinly sliced tail of Atlantic lobster, salmon caviar and a little wasabi which supplemented the flavoring variety. A slice of the same is worth $125. And only Joey is spending that much on a pizza.
6. Toilet Paper
The prize of a toilet paper surely has risen amidst coronavirus pandemic but it is still way less than $1.38 million. That’s what you will pay for this toilet paper made up of 22-carat gold flakes, which you will only flush down the toilet.
7. Designer Brick
Yes you are thinking right. We are talking about the same brick used to make houses. The brick made by the designer company named Supreme bagged an opening price of $30 in the beginning. But now, they are being sold for $4,704,000 just to build a 2400 square foot house. And trust me they work the same as the regular bricks do.
8. Kanye West Designed T-Shirt
$120 for a plain white t-shirt? How does that sound? Well, somewhere around 2013 when Kanye west introduced the same quoting it as a “designer t-shirt” people actually paid $120 for it. Like really? Even Zara will feel shy to sell the same at that price.
9. “Barbecue Pork” Rock
Rocks can be expensive agree, but $1,255 for a rock just because it looks something like a piece of meat? Well, that is not done. We didn’t find the beauty in the rock and surely that is why it is on our top 11 useless things list.
10. Designer Paper Bag
I would protest against paying Rs 10 for a paper bag at the mall and here is designer Jill Sander who sells designer paper bags for $290 apiece. Though it is stitched well and surely has a longer life than a regular paper bag, but still overpriced.
11. Parada Paper Clips
These little babies, that you can get for free if you are smart enough are sold by Parada for a whopping $185 apiece. Like who these people are fooling?
