Tempted to go online just to browse after sharing a few bottles of wine with your girlfriends? Heed this tale from Lucky‘s Alex Kuczynski before you go near that mouse. BUI–Buying Under the Influence–is an affliction affecting, um, probably a lot of women.
We don’t really know how many women it affects, but some were willing to go on record to divulge their humiliating purchases. The author starts by recounting a conversation she had with a company that was trying to ship her hot dog toaster to someplace called New York, Idaho. Pesky confusing drop-down menu! And a hot dog toaster? Some things, like tattoos and hot dog toasters, always sound like a great idea after some wine.
The above image shows what various Lucky editors bought when they were a little sloshed.
