There's no doubt that the Internet has changed how we shop forever. Why walk down to the store when Amazon will deliver it to my door first thing tomorrow? And in some places, they'll deliver it by drone in just a few hours. But it's not all rainbows and sunshine. After all, with the Internet, you can't try something on before you buy it, which has led to some pretty hilarious purchases.
Dear Amazon, I bought a toilet seat because I needed one. Necessity, not desire. I do not collect them. I am not a toilet seat addict. No matter how temptingly you email me, I'm not going to think, oh go on then, just one more toilet seat, I'll treat myself.— Jac Rayner (@GirlFromBlupo) April 6, 2018
Oh, Amazon. Why are you selling any of these things, and why would anyone ever intentionally buy them?
