20 People Who Finally Received Their Online Purchases and Got a Little Sad


It seems that today we shop more online than offline. And though, most of the time, our purchases look exactly the way we expected, there are still sometimes that we get duped. How can one explain such “masterpieces” as a frying pan where you can cook only one piece of rice or a mermaid blanket that looks as if it came from a nightmare?

We at Bright Side hope you’ve never had to encounter these things, but if you have, please share the photos of your unsuccessful purchases in the comments.

Everybody lies and that includes the seller of this bag.

A tent for... who?

Yep, we ordered it for our cat, not us.

It’s good that Harry and Meghan can’t see this.

“I ordered 200 clothespins, but didn’t read the description.”

“So here we have some boots I ordered online... The first photo is what they look like on the website, the second photo is what I received.”

“What I asked for vs What I got”

“My husband likes novelty socks. Guess I really knocked it out of the park with these personalized socks of our daughter...”

When was the last time you ordered something online? Please do share the photo of your last purchase with us.
