I owe this idea to http://leahlefler.hubpages.com/.
This has to do with my ongoing errata hub project. Be forewarned that anything entered here could end up there. If you want credit for it, you will have to go to my hub and post it in comments.
So far I've got:
Febreze. (As far as I'm concerned, if it smells, that means it's dirty - plain and simple. Clean it, or maybe spray disinfectant on it if that's the best you can do; but don't spray it with a small that will hide the fact that it's still dirty - and then call it "fresh as a daisy"). )
Call Waiting.....the rudest invention since chewing gum.
I hear you!
While cell phones are an important technological improvement, Call Waiting can be replaced by a busy signal.
Legos! They are fun, but you always loose those little pieces, or pets eat them if the children aren't trying to eat them, and you can never find the piece you want!!!
Wow, I can scarcely even imagine what my childhood would have been like without Legos! My brother was the most obsessed, but I'd still say that the only toys we had that I played with more were teddy bears and dress-up clothes. We used to spend days building these elaborate "Secret Islands" full of trapdoors and working drawbridges and pizza restaurants.
Hear Hear! Legos are wicked cool. My kids love 'em. I love 'em. Long live Lego!
Too short thermal underwear that leaves a gap at ankles and round the belt line to torture the warm flesh with icy bands.
The Ped Egg. This thing is just gross to me! Even worse, I received one as a gift. I'll leave my foot sanding to the professionals at the salon and use my Ped Egg for grating cheese. lol
The underwire bra. These things had to have been designed as part of the Spanish Inquisition...by a man who would never have to wear one.
Men's Speedos. If I wanted to see that much of a man, I would be taking him to a nearby hotel.
Glow-in-the-dark condoms. WHY?? I mean, if you don't already know where everything is, perhaps you should be engaging in some other activity.
I think the Ped Egg is not doing well, It's being sold in my local dollar store (which pretty much means that it's probably a loser product that people won't even pay a dollar for). It's just gross.
Stupidest thing ever invented was the Google Panda Update. What a load of crap! Cost lots of people a lot of money and earnings... Grrrrh!
I think that the Flo-Bee hair cutting machine had to be the worst. Who the hell wants to be hooked up to a vacuum for a hair cut.
I also think bras that like traffic cones with great big seams across the front are horrendous. You know the ones that your grandmother may still wear!
The Flo-Bee definitely has to be on that list.
Along with ultra-low rise jeans: the "muffin top" look is all over the mall these days.
I hate, hate, hate them and haven't worn a pair for the best part of a decade.
Reason I hate them is (a) they're clammy, (b) they ladder as soon as I put them on and (c) they never seem to be long enough so there is always a ten inch gap... you know the rest.
If it's winter and I'm wearing a skirt, I just put on a pair of leggings or longjohns, a pair of socks and some leg warmers under a pair of boots. Job done.
Cooler scoops so your hands don't get wet or cold when you go get a beer or soda! Stupid idea
Oh, I can't support your anti-Spam stance. See, without spam, we'd have never had the viking choir singing Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam......
Light beer. Sack up; dring beer or drink water, don't split the difference.
How bout 'Ice' beer, too?! Wtf was that about anyway?! Drink the beer warm or put it in the fridge and wait. And Michelob Stout is an oxymoron, right? Just like Rock Against Drugs
Reminds of a quote by comedian Stephen Wright:
"If I melt dry ice, can I swim without getting wet?"
No kidding! Beer should be beer. And if you want something not so strong, make small beer, not light beer.
I hate those business answering machines that start off by telling you "If you have a hash button on your phone, press it now..." Grrr...you just know you are going to get a load of questions, each with a number to press to get the 'right department' and at the end of all that, you'll get held in a queue anyway!
red dye #2
plastic grocery bags
and Legos rock! A toy that is actually good for the brain.
texting and that texting language - terrible
high heels (cause of injuries, bunions, back pain, and ridiculousness)
all of the "recreational drugs" (the synthetics, but not the good natural herb)
the recliner chair (I know it is comfy, but it causes obesity, among other things!)
QTIPS: because of the temptation to stick them in your ears even though the directions clearly states NOT for ear canal.
DOUGHNUTS: because they are sweet yeast balls boiled in oil
INDOOR PLANTS: because they belong outside... they're plants! geesh!
okay-these may not be technological inventions, but they sure are trouble makers for today's youth:
Reality shows/ YouTube / and Twitter
The tags showing the level of commenter and that someone is a hub author that appear in a hubs comments section. Distracting and annoying!

Is lego the best toy ever invented?
by aka-dj 9 years ago
I wonder if you have anything that you want to share. Something that you wanted to say to someone, but you knew that should never be said, so you didn't!But you are dying to get it out, off your chest, right now.Like telling your boss what he can do with his job... But you need the money.
