People Who Should’ve Said No To Their Online Shopping Addiction

The ability to shop online has made our lives easier in many ways, but that doesn’t mean the system is perfect. When ordering online, you always take the risk that your package will get lost along the way, or it won’t show up by the time you need it, or maybe the product you ordered isn’t even the product that shows up at your door.

Always make sure you double-check the description of whatever you’re ordering and that you trust the company, or you’ll end up with a prom dress that looks like it was made by a toddler.

That’s A Wrap

Your plan to cover all your friends’ gifts in wrapping paper with your face on it was foiled when you instead got a giant poster with four of your face on it, but at least one of your friends will get the gift of your face.

Don’t Buy Teeth Online

We understand that you want to have white, straight teeth, but if you’re going to spend all that money on veneers, go to a professional. You should know not to buy teeth online.

This One’s On You

If you were dumb enough to think that your “grow your own alligator” was going to end up looking like the actual alligator on the box, that’s your own fault.

He’s Got A Bone To Pick

No matter what you buy your dog, they’re going to be thrilled that you brought them a treat from the pet store. Next time, though, make sure you check the measurements on the bone before you click “add to cart” for your 10-pound dog.

That’s It, I’m Not Going

Of all of the occasions that you could’ve chosen to take a chance on an unknown brand that you found through a targeted Facebook ad, your senior prom probably isn’t the time you want to take a risk.

She Didn’t Say Yes To This Cake

If you’re going to send a photo to a bakery of the kind of cake you want made, it never hurts to verbally explain it, too, or you end up with a toilet seat cake instead of cupcakes.

The Reality Did Not Live Up To The Expectation

After six months on backorder, that charcuterie board you ordered for your brother’s girlfriend for Christmas finally showed up…and it looks like someone was forced to make it in the dark.

That’ll Clean One Finger

Why would a company even make a package of something that is this small? It seems like it would be a lot more effort to individually wrap the one wet wipe that could fit in that package.

Let People Guess Your Costume, Then Just Agree

Halloween costumes are meant to be scary, right? So even though it wasn’t what you had originally ordered, you can take pleasure in knowing this mask will definitely scare the people around you.

How Are You Supposed To Study With That?

It was heavy enough when it arrived that you knew it must be that new computer you’d been waiting weeks for, but instead, it was…three jugs of expired apple juice?

When You Wish Upon A Star

When an online deal seems like it might be too good to be true, that’s probably because it is. You didn’t find a great deal on Airpods, you were fooled.

It Looks Like A Small Intestine

This girl either unknowingly ordered a make-your-own blanket kit that only came with one long string of knitting fabric and no instructions, or whoever made that blanket has serious explaining to do.

Aren’t Cats Supposed To Be Good At Fitting Into Small Spaces?

You knew that your cat was a little…thick, so you ordered an XL cat bed thinking that he’d be able to squeeze his booty in there. This photo proves just how wrong you were.

She Couldn’t Mask Her Disappointment

In what world did a beauty company think that anyone needed a facemask this size? If your face is small enough to fit this mask, you don’t need to worry about brightening your skin or reducing your pore size.

Go To A Party Store The Day Before Like The Rest Of Us

Pennywise is meant to be scary, but the costume shouldn’t scar children for life if they see you out trick-or-treating. When it comes to Halloween costumes, never trust the online pictures.

Talk About Portion Control

Good luck doing any actual cooking with that mini skillet you hastily ordered without thinking to check the measurements of it. Who even knew they made skillets this small, quite frankly?

This Is Why You Couldn’t Do Your Homework

You thought you were getting a fun new desk chair for your room that would fit your aesthetic, but you ended up with more of a Barbie’s Malibu Dreamhouse vibe instead.

That Will Be A Mermaid’s Tail When Pigs Fly

No one needs a knitted mermaid tail blanket, so the fact that this woman got one that ended up making her look like she had pig’s feet feels a little bit like karma.

It Was 50% Off

“Up the river with half a kayak” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. How any company could even manage to deliver half a kayak is beyond us, but that’s a problem for customer support.

Happy To Precariously Perch

The structural integrity of this cat tree looks questionable at best, but the cat doesn’t seem terribly fazed by its new leaning tower of Pisa. As long as there’s a spot for him to sit, he’s happy.
