20+ Shopping Disasters That Brought More Tears Than Any 6 AM Job

Not all our purchases bring us joy and satisfaction. It seems it’s some kind of a conspiracy that makes us buy things that bring us nothing but disappointment. This is especially true for online purchases. For example, an online store may send us high-heeled shoes instead of sneakers, or a “huge” pillow which is actually quite tiny.

Smiles Tv put together facts proving that some purchases are dangerous not only to our budgets but also to our nerves.

“The hiking boots I ordered online look a little different than the picture they provided.”



Laser-etched branding on prescription glasses looks like they have a smudge on them to the person wearing them.

“The ’giant’ fish I ordered vs what I received”

“This is why I don’t buy clothes online.”

We’re curious about who has such tiny fingers.

Even anti-stress toys can lose their nerve on such long trips.

It seems the chef had a really bad day.

“You can see the tiny amount of product I just bought for a ridiculous amount of money.”

“I’m glad I turned that around.”
