18 Biggest Online Shopping FAILS

Yay, online shopping! Where previous generations needed to spend whole afternoons running from store to store in hopes of finding that one thing they were looking for, the worldwide web has once again made life considerably easier for many people. It is possible to browse dozens of shops in an hour, and then compare prices like never before. When you’ve found the item that you dream about, you can make it delivered to your home address so you never even have to go outdoors or talk to actual people.

Typically, let’s assume the vast majority, these transactions are completely flawless. You pick it, you cover it, you get it and you get bored of it after 3 weeks. Luckily for us, on occasion, the trade goes completely south. And when it does, somebody puts the whole thing on the web for people to see. Keep these in mind as a reminder to never take what you see in a webshop at face value. While a few of these could be (intentionally or not) dreadful, none of it is technically illegal. Odds are you won’t get back your money in the event that you get into these scenarios!

Cat for scale

What’s the best way to show people on the internet how small something is? Exactly, put it on a cat. Scratches to face completely optional.

At least it fits… somewhat

Sometimes you see that perfect dress online and it turns out its about 99% accurate. Apart from the fabric, or the color. Or the general shape. It’s actually not accurate at all.

Size does matter

Contrary to popular belief, sometimes giving exact sizes in advance can be an important thing. Especially considering not everyone lives in a dollhouse.

Exactly as advertised

Well, if you pay for a picture, you get a picture. No harm, no foul. I mean, not legally. Your karma is incredibly bad, though.
