I LIKE GARBAGE/TRASH BUT THIS IS JUST A WASTE OF LIFE
23 March 2019 | by bobscribblySee all my reviews

WASTE OF LIFE - Turn it OFF and go to the toilet, perhaps floss your teeth with barbed wire as anything is preferable to this lame poorly constructed boring as f^^k piece of doody. This is my 1st review and if I just save one person from this boring turd that refuses to flush then I will surely not end up in hell as is my destiny :)
