I bought one a way back when, in '07. I put it on my desk at work. One day I come to work and it's gone! What someone has stolen my woot monkey!!? I ask around and it ends up a co-worker thought -- well I don't know what he was thinking -- Anyway he took it, liked it SOO Much he, packed it up and sent it to his Wife and Kids living in the Philippines!! So I ask him We, the Hitchhikers and he calls his wife, and she pulls it out of the arms of her daughter and sends it back. So now I have a Woot Monkey proudly displayed after an extra 2 month journey and 15,000 miles of extra flying...

Sorry, but I think he was right to demand the monkey back. It wasn't his coworker's to send to the Philippines and hopefully the coworker paid the return postage as well! Pretty ballsy and crude to steal something and then give it as a gift to his kid. There had to be some stolen goods karma attached to the monkey. I'm glad the monkey is back where it belongs. I hope the thief got a serious chewing out at the very least.

I picked up the Razer Deathadder today, I'm pretty pleased.

The Livestrong stuff had me rolling. Who makes those jugs, honestly?

Yes, several. And that's not counting way back when, I'm just talking about recent years.

Way back in ought-four, when you were probably just a gleam in your daddy's eye, the bag-o-crap was just a normal day's item. It wasn't tied to a Woot-Off...for that matter, they hadn't come up with the idea of a Woot-Off yet. Those were pretty good bags too, as they were mostly just odds and ends that Woot! had sold previously but didn't have enough stock left to sell them as a daily item. Eventually they invented the Woot-Off, and that's how they disposed of the orphaned overstock items from then on. And that's when they started shipping crap in the bags instead of treasure. Though, truth to be told, the crap was still pretty good back then. As time has gone on, the crap has gotten crappier and crappier. Gone are the days when you'd get an $80 item in your bag, now you often get broken things that have "BROKEN" written on them in Sharpie. Then again, $8 was worth a lot more back in those days.

Ha!! That is what it looked like when I re-decorated the Christmas tree while the GF was out shopping! She was not as amused as I was with a screaming monkee tree in all of the family pictures.

If they sell out we may see another item, but it would be a regular woot. The key word is "may". If not, the woot off ends after one, and nothing else comes up.

My cats all perk up and watch to wear it will be flung. Then chase to kill.

And the dog does the same thing. Quite amusing pet toys, so I'm usually in for extra.

I hear people say this every time but for the 1st time I really have to agree with you. Little to no big-ticket or quality items and this is the 1st woot-off I have ever sat through that didn't have a Big o' Cosmos. I truly hope that this isn't a sign of things to come or Woot will become just another worthless sale site set up to offload the emperor of e-tailer's junk.

I've sat thru every single wootoff for the past year and I can honestly say this time, worst wootoff ever! lol

Once upon a time, I chose my way through a wootventure and now I holdeth in my hand a glowing monkey. Yet this monkey is not like the others, not for his luminescent soul, no. He is silent, and it is not by his choice, he is but mute. In my desperation I consider sending him back from whence he came, yet I cannot bring myself to violate woot law. What does the future hold for me and my monkey, alone, in the silence? Everybody's got something to hide except...

We, the Hitchhikers! People making crazy assumptions and taking whatever they want drives me crazy. At least you got it back; he can hammer his F5 key to get one for himself. If it was mine and he didn't return what he stole, I'd be taking his stuff that he'd valued and perhaps go as far as grabbing stuff out of his hand as ransom for MY MONKEY.

This is why we can't have nice things...I mean I can't bring anything nice to work to offset the soul-sucking beige cube walls.

Although it sounds heartless (b/c of the kid part), you did the right thing. The guy stole from you and put you in a unfair situation. He could have at least asked before sending it to his wife/kid. That's just wrong and not something you should have to worry about at work.

I am pretty sure that I've seen several woot-offs that did not contain a Big o' Cosmos. Mostly were right after christmas, April 1st, or Woot's birthday because all those days they sell Big o' Cosmos's. I would have been more shocked if there was a Big o' Cosmos during this wootoff since they did sell 7,500 less than a week ago.

I know where the Crimean War was fought!!! It was fought in the Crimean! See, people really aren't so dumb after all! (Even if I do own a screaming monkey.)

(OK, OK, the Crimean is a peninsula on the Black Sea. Biggest city--Sevastopol, the site of the largest battle of the Crimean War. These days, Ukrainia owns the Crimean, but I had to look that up to make sure it wasn't part of Russia.)

dcigary wrote:Yes. Not often, but yes.



Yes and Wooters get PO'd but they always come back with hope in their hearts for the next woot-off. Amazon has definitely changed the mood of a woot-off, though. Not nearly as much electronic stuff. More household goods and kids' toys. Numerous goods from the same manufacturer (ie. Livestrong) Not near as much fun as it used to be. Sigh
