Do you share the common hate of going to the mall, spending loads of time walking in an out of shops and trying clothes in suspicious booths? Then you might just agree that online shopping is one of the best inventions ever. Unlimited choice of goodies just a click away eliminates the need to go out of your cozy home and allows to shop more comfortable. Also, if you have to wait at least couple of weeks for delivery, a good chance is, that you've already forgotten about your order, so it's just like getting a present from yourself.

All of this sounds great, but there are millions of proofs that this perfect story can end up as an online shopping fail. Thought you had ordered a TV stand for an outrageously good price? It turns out it's for a dollhouse. Bought a fabulous prom dress? Don't get too excited, because it will probably look like a potato sack. Sure, reading the description and reviews might save you from these funny fails, but if it did happen, at least there's something to laugh about!

Check out our list of the ultimate fails when people got nothing like they expected to get. And if these online shop fails are not enough, check our dissapointing dresses that were ordered online.

I feel for the dude, but, yes, he should have checked dimensions. Also, it probably had a cheap price, which should have been a red flag. A rug like this can be really expensive.

They're not dollhouse sized. It's more like restaurant equipment. The frying pan is for tatin tarts and omelettes the small sauce pan also serves it's purpose tho I cant remember exactly what it's used for. Therefore you're an idiot for purchasing stuff online and not reading specs and descriptions.
