My Amazon basket is currently full of items that I want but can't afford. Chances are, you're exactly the same. For Twitter user Alex Dello, she had a Sephora basket full to the brim with makeup worth $733. Which like the rest of us, she wants but can't afford.
So when she recently entered an old gift card to see how much was on it, she was surprised to see that the order went through for some reason. Her reaction was pretty special...
According to Dello, she called Sephora's customer service in an effort to cancel the order. "[But] not being the main cardholder and me not even having that credit card on hand, there was nothing she could do to cancel. I couldn't prove that it was my card, it basically looked like fraud and I tried to back out of the crime," she explained to BuzzFeed News.
Dello was eventually forced to send an embarrassing text to her mom, Marcia DelloStritto. She wrote, "Okay, I was on Sephora and ur cards set up and I clicked check out on accident because I was trying to see how much was on this old gift card... sooo ur going to need to cancel that order. don't kill mee."
DelloStritto admitted to Buzzfeed that when she saw the text she "panicked and at first [Alex] did not include the total. Knowing her and her love of makeup, I knew it had to have been a lot for her to be texting me." She eventually stopped trying to get a refund and is going to give her daughter all of the items for Christmas.
Twitter was shocked by just how generous the mother had decided to be...
Dello said she's happy people got a kick out of her costly error. "I am so blessed to be inspiring people with what I love, which is makeup and making people laugh."
