18 People That Wanted a Tasty Meal but Never Got It

When we order food for delivery to our home or at a restaurant, we pay more than it really costs, but we do this in order to forget about our everyday routine and save some time. It doesn’t matter who you are — a person that wanted to eat at home with their lovely cat or a cafe guest who wanted to have a nice time in a nice place. Everyone is equally likely to regret their decision at one time or another. The photos that these internet users shared, prove the fact that anyone can be disappointed.

Bright Side is convinced that all of us have had trouble when buying food. And our bonus will prove that reality can sometimes exceed our expectations too.

“While in the Dominican Republic my wife and I ordered a Caesar salad... This is what we got.”

“My husband said he wanted to eat as if he were at an expensive restaurant. Voila!”

“Ordered eggs Benedict in a cafe and received this monstrosity.”

“The picture looked good. I ordered the pancakes. Expectation and reality did not match.”

“I ordered a ‘grilled cheese with ham.’ Am I supposed to make the sandwich myself?”

“Ordered mac and cheese from a fancy Italian restaurant on my street and got this, which I’m pretty sure is a hate crime.”

“Ordered a galette in what seemed like a decent café. This is what arrived. How do you like the amount of bacon?”

“I expected anything but a CAN!”

“So I ordered an ice cream sandwich in Thailand... This is what they gave me.”

What’s the point of being eco-friendly when it’s not user-friendly?

“I live in the Netherlands. Ordered a pizza with lettuce...”

“My high school senior ‘breakfast’ that I paid $15 for”

“Oh, girls, I made a huge Chinese dumpling, here’s my simple recipe: one pack of dumplings + a bad fridge”

“Dinner at a corporate Christmas party... Mashed potatoes, roast beef, and peas in a martini glass”

Uhm... What is this?

“How about this little food critic? He smelled my food and started digging it, as if it were his litter box. Not the best start to a meal.”

Bonus: When reality is way better than your expectations

“I went to a cafe and ordered a large coffee and when the barista said, ’Our large is 24 ounces is that okay?’ it didn’t really register until he handed me this.”

What food story could you easily add to this compilation?
