What is sold at an inconvenience store?

Recommended Posts

Simple concept, what sort of items wouold be sold at an inconvenience store? They need to be items that would still work (technically) but would be incredibly inconvenient. I'll start us off.

A phone which only takes non-rechargeable batteries.

 

A laptop with no screen.

 

A monitor that inverts all the colours.

A shelf store with empty shelves.

 

It would be even more inconvenient for the owners. :evilgrin:

A computer without a power button.

 

Oh well, those actually exist.*

 

* technically a computer. And I'm using a similar one right now… not the weak Raspberry Pi but a 100 € SBC… still without a power button! >:( yesterday my real PC fried.

Every device or system that can be programmed to process data automatically is technically a computer thus "a computer". Interestingly though my home modem-router has a conventional power button that really cuts the power, unsurprisingly though it's at the back out of the way.

 

A store that sells gallium kettles.

Ok so I think there must be at least one other country that has this but when I realise how recently installed some of the taps can be that infuriates me. Like my Gran's house is 30 years old and it has double taps, and I'll see it in recently renovated toilets in cinemas or restaurants. I'm sure there's some 200 year old tale like for everything else but why would anyone choose it over a single tap? </rant>

From what I've been told, they're more robust and easier to repair than single taps.
