Online shopping always feels somewhat like a lottery. If you’re lucky, the size or pattern might be a little off. If you’re unlucky, you might get something else entirely that is of bad quality beyond belief — you just never know. But we can admit that the results make for some seriously good jokes.
We at Bright Side love having a good laugh and sympathize with people who manage to find humor in bad purchases.
