There is no doubt that online shopping is much better than going to real stores. It is a quicker option and you can buy literally anything from the comfort of your home! However, not everything about it is flawless, and one of the things that make it difficult is the fact you cannot see the products prior to purchasing them. You cannot feel their quality, you cannot sense the smell they have and you cannot be sure about their actual size! All of this could easily lead to situations in which you could end up being frustrated and disappointed. The list below shows how some people had to deal with such moments.
1. This person ordered a kayak online
It was a rather expensive purchase, but he was probably sure what he was doing. However, much to his surprise, he received only one half of the kayak! The look on his face says it all!
2. You can understand this person’s confusion
Sure enough, these boots look great in the original photo, and everyone would love having a pair of them. However, things were not what they seemed, and what actually came in the package merely resembled the photos in the ad.
3. Here is why size matters
You should make sure that you always check the size regardless of what you order online. This is still a toy, technically speaking, but it is far too small to be used as intended!
4. Here is another size issue
This is yet another person who failed to check the dimensions of this product. Online vendors often use this trick and they solely rely on the fact that nobody would take their time to read the specifications of the product.
5. This looks like a good prank
Successful pranks look pretty much like this one here, but this was no prank. Someone really ordered a specific shirt, but got something else instead! Let us hope that it was nothing but a mix-up!
6. This is absolutely hilarious
We need to admit that we would have ordered this blanket as well! It looks so warm and soft that we would wrap ourselves in it every night. However, what came in the package was not the thing that this person ordered.
7. Cakes should never be ordered online
Ordering a dress is one thing, but buying a cake online is a huge risk and we are not sure it is worth it at all! In fact, we believe that this person learned a valuable lesson after placing the order for this cake, or whatever you can call it.
8. There is more than a slight difference here
The fact that someone ordered such a mask is a bit alarming, but maybe they needed it for a specific occasion. Regardless of that reason, the real product turned out to be entirely different that the one in the original ad.
9. Maybe this explains the good price
Most people return shoes all the time, because they either don’t fit or they turn out to be poorly made. In this case, however, the reason is much more simpler than that. The person took delivery of only one shoe!
10. Now this is one huge difference
It is one thing for the actual product to only merely resemble the one advertised, but it is a completely different story when the two have nothing in common. Imagine this person’s frustration after taking delivery of this thing!
11. This is a textbook example of an ‘expectation vs. reality’ photo
There is little we could add to this one, because it is clear to see that everything is wrong with the product! The shape, the purpose, the color and the materials are completely different and we find it hard to believe that people pull off such tricks!
12. The actual product is kind of funny
This person was surprised to take deliver of a patch that was not exactly the same as the one they ordered, but we guess that the one that arrived is better than the original! It is funnier, too!
13. This plate is definitely not what this person expected
The thing about these items is that they need to represent something in particular, meaning that all the details about them need to be perfect. Well, they are not even close to perfect in this case, and you can easily see what is wrong here!
14. This is one cute backpack
Of course, the fact that a product has the same color scheme and the same quality as described does not mean that everything is fine with it. The measures of the item were probably written in really small font, because it looks like a toy!
15. This person received the wrong order
He still decided to put it on, just in case, and he posted the photo later!
16. This is not even close to the original costume
Maybe this person felt disappointment and laughed immediately after that, and we would have done the same!
17. This is absolutely ridiculous
This is not some kind of a joke, but the actual pair of shoes someone received!
18. It is all a matter of perspective
This person decided that they would have a large pool on their disposal, but it was not even close!
19. Here is one curious calendar
The cover sure looked promising!
Once you see inside, you realize that it was nothing but hilarious!
This is the kind of product that should not exist at all!
20. This is definitely not a smart light bulb
This person ordered one, but received only its box with a fidget spinner inside!
21. This is yet another case of overlooked measurements
The actual product can be referred to in any other way, but not a blanket!
22. This is super funny to see
The size of the chair is ridiculous!
The person’s face says it all here as well!
This chair has absolutely nothing in common with what the person imagined!
23. Ordering a dress online is a mistake
These images are the perfect proof of that!
This girl had fun with her delivered item instead of acting disappointed, and this is the best attitude!
