Online shopping is super easy and convenient. But it does have its pitfalls. Like the time my wife and I ordered a sectional sofa we absolutely loved. When it was finally delivered weeks later, we realized very quickly that the monstrosity would take up a good 60 percent of our living room because we didn't take the time to look at its measurements.
Something that this young woman should've done before ordering this funky looking plastic chair for her bedroom off of Amazon.
People, of course, were quick to remind her that not looking at the dimensions of the product is a rookie mistake, but she had a pretty good reason for her oversight.
everyone asking me if i read the dimensions or details IM SORRY OK I SAW $10 AND JUST BOUGHT IT— sav 🦄♌️ (@itssavannahxox) August 4, 2017
Which prompted a lot of helpful suggestions from fellow Twitter users.
In the small-chair-purchaser's defense, however, she wasn't the only one to make the same mistake with the same exact product.
When you type "clear plastic chair" into Amazon's search bar, it's one of the first results that pops up.
The Amazon reviews are also filled with people who made the same error, as well.
"I'm giving it 5 stars because it was so funny when I opened up this small box to discover ...
Please read the description before buying this product. I really thought I was getting a bargain deal on a normal sized chair. I'm giving it 5 starts because it was so funny when I opened up this small box to discover a mini chair. Anyways I made use of it as a toothpaste holder lmaoo."
Strangely enough, people still gave the thing 5-stars even if they were expecting a full-sized chair.
Guess you can't put a price on a good laugh. Well in this case, $3.49 for an add-on item will do the trick.
There are plenty of ways to troll a sleeping friend while on a road trip. My personal favorite is parking the car in front of a light pole or a wall, flashing your lights, and having everyone in the car at the same time scream their heads off as if you're all about to die.
That's one way to wake them up.
But Eria found a different approach to trolling her boyfriend, Scott, that had a much longer effect: she enlisted the help of the I'm Telling God Facebook group in roasting him mercilessly for his soporific ways. As a result, the 'Sleepy Scott' meme was born.
If you were like pretty much everyone in the world, you were probably let down by the fact that Croatia didn't have their storybook ending in taking home first place in the 2018 World Cup. Sure, France had an amazing team and all that, and the contest's youngest MVP player, Mbappé, even donated all of his winnings from the tournament to charity—so I guess it's hard to be too upset with the competition's end result.
And even though everyone played their hearts out (except Egypt, I mean, they went again Saudi Arabia and the results were just embarrassing), there was a clear winner this World Cup and it actually wasn't even any of the teams. S
ure there's a first, second, and third place result, but all of those accomplishments pale in comparison to the wonderful memes that sprung up as a result of this glorious tournament.
More than a few were thanks to Brazil's Neymar.
I grew up in a marginally superstitious family who brought some beliefs and hocus-pocus superstitions from the old country. I couldn't make too much noise late at night for fear of attracting a "jinn." I couldn't point at cemeteries or stare into a mirror for too long or my face would become deformed, and heaven help me if I was ever mean to or disobeyed my parents or grandparents, because then I'd be looking at a cursed life that would ruin me until the day that I died.
But the idea of "back luck" or stepping on cracks, walking under ladders, or stealing a black cat's macchiato isn't something that my family really bought into. Sure, we believed in supernatural stuff and the idea that karma gets back around to mess with you or your kids, but "bad luck"?
No honey, it isn't luck that's ruining your life, it's an unseen species of metaphysical monsters that exist in a different plane we know little about—but they are mentioned in the Quran, so be careful!
There are phenomena so unfortunate that simply looking at images of them will cause the same bad luck to befall you. So on this Friday the 13th, gaze upon these pictures with extreme caution.
