Have you ever PAID for a fly swatter? LOL!

I have never in my life had to buy a fly swatter because I've always gotten them free at the fair. However I moved and haven't been to a fair in several years now. Regardless, I still had TWO fly swatters but it seems my 3 yo has lost them. Now I'm using junk mail on those pain-in-the-rear flies. I can't believe I have to go BUY a fly swatter! Have you ever bought one?

  • Yeah, a long, long, long time ago! It's still in good shape, no holes or anything :-) Those things last forever!

  • I have never got one for free so we are exactly opposite. One thing I always get at our fair is gardening gloves which are awesome.

  • Yes. I've never recieved a free fly-swatter. In fact, I wasn't aware that they were ever given away.

    I even bought a zapping swatter. It takes batteries and actually zaps bugs when you touch them with it. It comes in handy on bees.

  • I don't really get that many flies that I would need a fly swatter. I never bought one and never got a free one either.

  • Yes, at the dollar store though. Nothing fancy.

    Answer by momentofpeace at 12:22 PM on Aug. 24, 2010

  • Nope, sure haven't. The one I do have is a Pampered Chef one that I got free with a show.
