    The most mundane thing you have ever ordered off the internet?

    Well, I think I have set some kind of new low whilst at the same time proving that there really is almost nothing you can't order online these days.
    On Saturday I placed an order for 2x replacement couch springs. It also promises to be the dullest package opening ever once they arrive.

    I'm still waiting for my highly mundane and unwanted ShowerSaint to turn up.

    If they've compressed the springs and stuck Zebedee puppets on them, then it could be quite fun! Don't get your hopes too high though.

    Huge list here, hard to choose. Pick from:

    Plastic dipstick guide for a VAG TDi engine
    Bonnect clip for a 306
    A shower PRD (pressure relief device to stop the unit exploding in your face)
    A solenoid for a washing machine
    An 'F' key for a laptop (which was the wrong one, so I modified it with superglue and a Stanley knife.)

    Fun times!

    Surely you can't get any more dull than printer toners anway? At least with new sofa springs you know you'll reap the benefits in comfort!
