Expectation Vs Reality: 29 People Who Deeply Regret Buying Stuff Online

Online shopping is a preferred way to buy stuff because it's super convenient. The products we buy are delivered right to our door with just a few clicks on a smartphone or laptop. We spend hours in the heat of summer standing in line to buy necessities. However, there are still many inconvenient things, as nothing is perfect. For example, the item that you bought doesn't look the same as it does in the pictures posted on the shop page. Here are some 'expectation vs reality' photos that customers around the world shared online.
