Not all our purchases bring us joy and satisfaction. It seems it’s some kind of a conspiracy that makes us buy things that bring us nothing but disappointment. This is especially true for online purchases. For example, an online store may send us high-heeled shoes instead of sneakers, or a “huge” pillow which is actually quite tiny.

Bright Side put together facts proving that some purchases are dangerous not only to our budgets but also to our nerves.

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

Laser-etched branding on prescription glasses looks like they have a smudge on them to the person wearing them.

“The ’giant’ fish I ordered vs what I received”

“This is why I don’t buy clothes online.”
