15 Times Reality Beat All Expectations

Shopping is unpredictable. Even when taking a box from a store, you can never be sure what will be inside in the end. As for online stores, you never know what you could possibly get — it could be something completely unexpected. And if this happens, you can either complain about the seller or the delivery service or laugh at this misfortune with other Internet users.

At Bright Side, we try to take each problem with a dose of humor, and we admire Internet users who are willing to share their epic fails with the entire world. And in the bonus section, we’ll tell you about some weird service and the main disappointment of adult life.
