25 Shopping Fiascoes That Are Too Good to Get Mad About

year ago

Tiny tights, 2 left shoes, a huge dustpan, or a giant floating flamingo — when something completely different arrives from the shop, it really sucks. Almost all of us have had to deal with it at least once in a lifetime — so you can either get angry or turn it into a funny story!

1. That’s why checking the dimensions before ordering on Amazon is important.

2. “My friend ordered a dustpan on Amazon...now looking for a broom to match.”

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

4. Okay, sleep tight!

5. “Bought new shoes online...nice!”

6. AliExpress always delivers.

7. The dad who ordered the wrong size

8. “3 years ago I unknowingly bought a 2-person child’s tent thinking it was adult-sized...and I still took it to the festival.”

9. Almost. They almost nailed it.

10. Always take notice of a product’s size when shopping online.

11. Mini-deck chairs for the mini-garden

12. The Jordans that came with something a little extra

13. “Bought this shirt online. So far, I’ve been getting a lot of weird looks...”

14. Here’s a fake Sharpie. It’s a Skerple.

15. “I ordered a desk lamp from Amazon. I should have read the specs more carefully.”

16. Apparently this is what a “smart watch” looks like.

17. It’s not even close.

18. “My wife thought the skillet would be a little bigger.”

19. This is so bad that it’s actually good.

20. Thanks, Amazon.

21. Now we get why it’s €2.

22. What you order vs what you get

23. Amazon misunderstanding

24. Medium at its worst

25. Amazon may want to recheck those product dimensions.
