20 People Who Know How to Fulfill Requests to a Tee

When ordering something online or at a new restaurant, it’s worth being prepared for anything. As the bitter experience of internet users shows, you may get a dress in the wrong color or size or a dog bed that’s the size of a mouse pad. Or that dish that looked so tasty on the restaurant’s menu, may end up ruining your appetite for a long time. However, sometimes the result of our purchases or requests may not only meet our expectations, but even exceed them.

At Bright Side, we admire people who are ready to do their best to fulfill the requests of their friends, customers, or loved ones. It might have been nice if they’d learned to understand the requests slightly less literally though.

1. “I asked for a corgi cake for my birthday. Husband did not disappoint at all!”
