It might take a while, but it’s always a good idea

What am I talking about, you’re probably asking yourself?

I’m referring to reading the online reviews before you order stuff to be shipped to your house!

Because if you don’t, you’re gonna end up with egg on your face, metaphorically speaking.

Take a look at these folks who learned this lesson the hard way.

1. Might be a good idea to give that to a child.

Just a thought…

Misunderstood my last Amazon purchase [xpost r/facpalm]

2. Elmo has DEFINITELY seen better days.

Well, someone’s birthday was ruined.

We ordered the cake on the left and received the cake on the right…Elmo has seen better days

3. Who’s responsible for this?!?!

Seems like a pretty big screw-up, doesn’t it?

This guy bought a smart phone online but received a stone

4. Not even close, huh?

Well, at least now you have a nice wrist rest.

Ordered a body pillow got a wrist rest instead. I’m about 7.5 bananas tall.

5. Who’s that creepy old man hiding behind your tree?

I think you should probably call the cops…

This is pretty weird…

7. You look like you’ve been possessed by an entity.

Should we call a priest to perform an exorcism?

I bought some “accent” lashes. They look so natural.

8. He doesn’t look too happy about it.

Let’s see if he can squeeze into that thing.

His XL crate arrived from eBay today.

9. Read the fine print.

Just be wary of the “actual size”. That’s helpful.

Shopping online for coffee tables and came across this review.

10. How is this not fraud?

Even the Apple logo looks a little weird.

Friend bought $600 Apple Watch off eBay. This is what came.

11. Just leave that thing out in the backyard.

Don’t bring it into the house!

12. I hope you’re hungry!

How many people are you cooking for?

My friend’s GF’s dad sent them an xxxxl cutting board for their housewarming by mistake.
