Hilarious snapshots reveal that online shopping is failing

Speaking of buyer’s regrets! Hilarious snaps reveal the VERY unsatisfying products online shoppers ended up with – from a terrifying Santa to a huge thick blanket covering only the dog

  • People from the US and UK shared the items they received after ordering online
  • Instead of what was ordered and expected, buyers ended up with gruesome replicas
  • One woman’s dog was bitterly disappointed when the toy she bought was too small
  • The woman who ordered a glamorous dress was given an ill-fitting product instead

We’ve all heard of buyers’ regrets, but the phrase has taken on a whole new meaning thanks to hilarious photos of online orders that went horribly wrong.

People from the US and UK have shared snaps comparing the items they ordered online to the products they actually ended up with in a hilarious gallery collected by Bored Panda.

Instead of the glamorous see-through negligee with faux fur sleeves she expected, a woman, presumably from the US, ended up wearing an ill-fitting, see-through dress with frilly sleeves.

Pet products seem to be particularly problematic, with one owner ending up with two balls of rope in place of the cactus-shaped scratching post they ordered for their cat, while another ordered a ramp to help their dog climb off the couch and ended up with a miniature dia.
