    I just ordered a sheet of rubber to use as a boot liner to keep the doghairs and muck at bay In my car.

    Trawled eBay for a deal and came across what looked like the bargain of the century.

    250cm x 250cm x 6mm 'value' sheet for £4.50...thought it was cheap but maybe inferior quality or basically crap, not to worry its only a boot liner.
    I even checked that wasnt the square meter price.

    Ordered and paid for, then returned to the page.

    Then i looked properly........250 MILLIMETERS X 250 MILLIMETERS X 6MM

    What the hell can i do with a 10" square bit of rubber ?

    I've asked the seller if i can cancel but as its sunday and this is a company rather than an individual i wont know until tommorrow.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl: You might stand a chance of selling them on, far more of a chance than selling a ten inch square piece of rubber though!

    You can return it under DSR (distance selling rules) & supplier has to pay return postage.

    6mm thick....in Ken and Barbies world that would be about a foot thick.......dont think it would bend to the pool shape.
