Woman Thinks She Hacked Amazon By Ordering A Ton Of Free Carpet Samples, Regrets It Immediately
Free stuff! Everybody loves free stuff, don’t they? Imagine the delight of this woman, Imgur user RowdyMcMenace, when she discovered an Amazon shopping feature that will send carpet and fabric swatches free of charge, delivered to her door. “I definitely got carried away ordering that many!” Rowdy told Bored Panda. “I got one small delivery at first, then yesterday a mountain of free carpet samples arrived.”
“These would make a neat cat scratcher, and they’re free so…” she said about her reasoning behind the free carpet collecting. Makes sense right? In her own words, she stated her case quite eloquently. “I never requested these under the pretense of making a purchase, and if a company can not afford to give away carpet samples, then they shouldn’t offer.”
However, I think it’s fair to say she made an enemy out of the Amazon delivery guy by the time her sample splurge was finally satisfied, and there were so many individually wrapped packages that he required a little extra assistance. “My boyfriend was home and awake, so he helped the delivery guy bring everything inside,” she told us. “That’s why there’s an empty hamper in one picture- he was using it to carry a bunch at a time!”
Despite the unexpected arrival of the ‘mountain,’ Rowdy’s boyfriend appears to have taken the whole episode in good spirits. “My boyfriend is so laid back that after the mountain of parcels was inside he woke me up to watch me freak out,” she told Bored Panda. “I was in disbelief, then all I could do was laugh and apologize. I felt awful, but it was already done so might as well make the best of it! He helped me clean everything up, and then we played with the cats.”
Having learned her lesson from the binge, which came in packaging that she did not expect, she has kindly decided to donate the excess samples to local animal shelters. “I can’t bring myself to sell something I got for free,” she explained. “I’d much rather donate and share.”
