Online shopping is great! The convenience and prices are second-to-none, and there is a whole world of exciting new retailers to try.
There are downsides too, the environmental concerns of shipping a set of 50 cent hairclips over from China are real, especially if everyone starts doing it. And what about mom and pop’s general store on the high street? What happens to them?
Still, for sheer ease and the added thrill of never quite knowing how it’s gonna turn out, online shopping can’t be beat. Sometimes however, expectations don’t quite meet reality. That dress that looked amazing on a blurry photo of a model, might not look quite so amazing on you. Those $700 sneakers you just bought? They are actually tiny doll sneakers and you just got scammed.
We here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of all the times when online shopping went hilariously wrong, proving that sometimes, the mall or the high street is better after all.
