Many sellers do everything to keep their clients satisfied with their purchase. But there are also those who ignore this rule and can easily give you a cat in a sack. That’s when we get the situations that can make us both laugh and cry at the same time.

We at Bright Side want to share with you 20 photos that prove, once again, that expectation and reality don’t always coincide.
