4. “Cute pink pig Kawaii cushion plush”

5. “Platinum hair expectation vs reality”

6. “Sheep cupcakes”

7. “My poor mother-in-law got bamboozled by a fake website. The delivered Charlie Brown ’tree’ is so pathetic looking, I honestly love it.”

8. “Beauty products these days...”

9. “The hiking boots I ordered online look a little different than the picture.”

10. “I still got compliments on it though but mostly gave people the creeps!”

11. “I ordered some tights for Halloween online. I didn’t check the size and it turns out they were a bit too small...”
