21 Painful Photos Proving That Trust Is a Fragile Thing

Once you are lied to, it becomes really difficult to trust a person or a company. It sounds serious, but on some occasions it can also be funny: cars “scratched” with chalk, tennis rackets replaced with frying pans, and so on.

Bright Side has collected 21 stories of when gullibility caused funny situations.

“Great quality,” said the description.

Please do not have an emergency here.
