20 People Who Expected to Buy Something Awesome but Were Left With a Broken Heart

Buying new things always feels a bit like Russian roulette. Sometimes you’ll order a beautiful dress online but when it arrives, you realize that the size is wrong and it looks nothing like it did in the picture. Or perhaps you want to treat yourself to a delicious snack but it doesn’t look anything like its picture on the wrapper. It’s just the tricky part of buying something for the first time.

We at Bright Side have selected 20 photos to show you how manufacturers can outwit consumers. So you may want to be extra careful the next time you buy something new.
