    Default Worst purchase ever!!!

    For Christmas my wife bought our daughter an "Electric Heated Plush Throw".. and its destroying my life!!

    A few weeks ago the daughter left the blanket on the couch still turned on. Molly, who for some reason is allowed on the couch while Kevin is not, walked across the blanket and INSTANTLY fell over asleep on it.

    She hasn't moved since! From 7am - 11pm that dog is sleeping (SNORING) on that damn blanket. My wife and kids think it's cute so they keep turning the blanket on for her. It's like a drug to her, She could be playing/jumping/trotting along but the instant she hits that heated blanket she falls on her face asleep.

    What makes it the worst purchase ever?!? The time between 11pm - 7am.. She's been sleeping so much during the day that she is up-all-night. And when she's up all night Kevin is up all night. The dogs playing 'Doggy-Destruction' (running around the house, barking/chasing each other, knocking things over) is cute during the day... not at 3am.

    I haven't had a solid night sleep in weeks.

    I've tried to hide the heated blanket... but my wife and daughter keep finding it and putting it out for her. (They dont have to go to work at 6am each morning!).

    My new plan (insert evil hand rubbing emoji here) is to take a lighter to the blanket and burn a small hole it it. I'll make it look like it caught fire.

    "Oh No!" i'll say.. "This blanket isn't safe".. "We must put it in the trash immediately".

    Wish me luck!! I need to get those dogs back on a normal schedule so i can sleep!

    (i posted this picture in another thread... but here is Molly snuggled up in that damn blanket!)

    Yes, I "used to" have one, until a dog chewed the cord. That put the kabash on mine! No animals were injured in this sentence-but I had a hard time getting to sleep after that. I understand,Molly,I understand.... @TheLost Keep one eye open,Molly-just sayin.

    Take it away during the day, and give it back to her at night Problem solved.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Your plan may be flawed. Wife may opt to send it in for warranty repair and must buy another whilst the original is in the shop. Soon you will have 2 blankets.

    Easiest solution is to switch to working graveyard shift. Everybody wins!

    You are certainly welcome...always willing to help.

    Agree w/Chip, your wife and/or daughter will probably go out and get another one, that's what I would do.

    I can only imagine...and I sympathize!

    I got a new, plushy throw for Christmas and the minute Cami lay on it, well, you know
    what happened...it's now hers and yes, so soft it puts her to sleep immediately. And it's
    non heated!

    A friend dropped by just two days ago and was loving on her Divashipness...Oh, I see Cami
    got a new blankie for Christmas!

    I just snickered...it's a Bully's world, there is no winning the battles, take the graveyard shift!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
