Online shopping has changed the face of the retail world forever. Everyone loves online shopping. It’s simple, easy, convenient, and doesn’t require you to actually get out of bed, change out of your pajama bottoms, and put on pants. One of the best things about the Internet is that you can find literally anything you want, no matter how random, weird, or unusual it is. What’s not to love? Well, as you’ll see in this story, things we see online don’t always arrive at our homes looking the same way. The world of online shopping is still pretty much unregulated. It’s like the Wild West on the world wide web, so buyer beware. Check out these hilarious online shopping fails!
“Not everything that glitters is gold” goes the expression, and it definitely applies in this case. This woman looked like she had a very specific picture in mind when she made her online order.
In fact, that picture is identical to the one on the left. As you see on the right, though, she got something completely different. Her face plainly expresses how she feels. Clearly, this is not the same article of clothing.
Less Than Perfect Fit
Bodycon dresses are the hottest style on the planet now. Inspired by everyone’s favorite media family, the Kardashians, young women all over the world are wearing skintight, bandage style dresses that show off their killer curves.
But fashion has a price, and dressing like Kim K isn’t cheap. This girl thought she found a loophole by ordering a dress from the Internet – however, she wasn’t well-versed int he dangers of online shopping and the dress wasn’t what she expected!
Game Of Scams
This story takes a bit more of a serious turn. A 19-year-old father, Peter Clatworthy, wanted to give his young son the ultimate Christmas present – a much sought after Xbox One. After scanning eBay for hours, he finally found one for $750.
He decided to take the plunge and order it after seeing the seller had only positive reviews. To his surprise, he got only a piece of paper with a picture of an Xbox One on it!
On the model, this dress looks perfect. Its contrasting colors and peek a boo style catch the eye while still leaving a little something to the imagination. No wonder this girl decided to order it!
But she got an unpleasant surprise after finally receiving her home delivery. Instead of getting a sultry cut-out dress that perfectly accented her figure, this poor girl got a mangled garment that looks more like a window curtain than a going out dress.
At first glance, the instructions this customer gave seem hard to get wrong. But let’s think about it for a moment. Sometimes people take instructions a little too literally.
Maybe the worker who was shipping out the box has just gotten into a robot like routine and doesn’t pay attention to what customers are writing in the special instructions box. Or maybe, with the advent of technology, an actual robot was doing the job and that’s why the message didn’t come across.
It’s a sweet idea – order a bouquet of flowers that resemble your loved one’s best friend, and watch as they react with surprised glee. Unfortunately, for this girl, things didn’t work out as she planned.
She wanted to get her boyfriend flowers that looked like his pet pup, but what ended up arriving was more of a wilted mess that looked like a sad cry for help, complete with glued on googly eyes. We hope that she got a refund!
Crawling On The Walls
While cats aren’t particularly known for their loving and affectionate nature, if looks could kill, this kitty would be a murderer. He seems to be pretty displeased with the fact that this gift from his owner isn’t exactly what he expected.
It’s not clear if this is a hilarious practical joke, or if the owner simply didn’t check the measurements that the seller posted. Whatever the case, it’s clear that this cat is majorly upset about this tiny scratching post.
Basically The Same
Everyone loves an item that changes. Whether it’s a reversible sweater or Transition lenses, having an item that does more than one thing makes you feel like you’ve gotten two products for the price of one.
However, for this poor customer, this popular Christmas mug wasn’t exactly what she expected when she ordered it. Instead of a mug that changes its image when its exposed to hot water, the buyer got a mug with a picture of two mugs on it.
Halloween is the best time of year to let your freak flag fly high, and this dude was totally ready to take advantage of it. He planned on dressing as Catwoman in skintight leather leggings – however, when he got his order, it ended up fit for a fairy and not a grown man.
It’s not clear if this is just a straight up rip off or specifically made for dolls, but whatever the case, it’s definitely a holiday ruiner.
There’s nothing like an ornate rug that screams elegance to pull a room together. A nice Persian rug conveys elegance, class, and wealth, so it’s no surprise that this young man ordered one and was super excited about the effect it would have on the aesthetic of his bachelor pad.
But, to his shock, the rug wasn’t quite the size he was expecting when he paid for it. At least he’s found a useful purpose for the tiny carpet as a bookmark!
Ho Ho Horrible
Everyone loves a Christmas tree, but the mess it makes – with the dropped needles, falling branches, and the eventual sad drag out to the curb sometime in mid-February – makes an artificial tree super appealing.
Of course, it made sense for this customer to buy a plastic tree online, and get into the spirit of the holiday without worrying about the eventual cleanup. However, it’s quite clear from the box that this tree is super misleading. Not exactly festive.
Trash The Dress
It’s clear that this guy has been working out for quite a while and wanted to show off the results of his efforts. He’s worked hard on his body to achieve that Greek god look, and so it’s only right to show it off.
But we’re pretty sure that a Kim Kardashian style bodycon dress was not what this guy expected when he ordered this grey muscle tank. On the plus side, his glutes do look fantastic in the garment!
Pocket placement is probably something that you’ve never thought about before but is actually something absolutely crucial to sweater design. This unlucky soul ordered what appeared to be the perfect cozy Christmas sweater, only to end up getting a bizarre garment in the mail.
Perhaps this sweater was designed for the T-rex population in mind so that their short arms could easily reach the pockets. We don’t know, but even seeing this as a picture makes us cringe.
Bigger Is Better
Sometimes when a deal is too good to be true, it’s because there’s something majorly wrong. On social media, an employee posted this photo with a caption explaining that:
“My boss bought 50 chairs in an online auction… It wasn’t until we went to pick them up, that it was at an elementary school!” So that probably explains why they were so cheap! We just hope that workers in this business weren’t forced to actually use these chairs.
Ghost Of Star Wars Past
Prince Leia costumes are an all-time classic for Halloween. Cute and sensual without revealing too much, Leia’s simple white dress with slits is flattering on every body type and shape.
That’s why we are sure this girl was doubly disappointed when her Princess Leia costume finally arrived in the mail. This oversized, shapeless garment looks more fit for a ghost than a royal! But from the big grin on her face, it looks like she’s a good sport.
Not That Kind Of Girl
The customer in this next fail is definitely a tomboy and athletic type. She ordered some hiking boots from an online store so she could keep doing extreme outdoor activities.
From the battle wounds and bruises on her legs, it’s clear that this a rough and tumble type of girl whose not interested in prancing around in heels. That’s what makes it especially funny that after a mix-up, she ended up receiving these dainty and impractical heels!
Latex and leather are tricky materials – you have to make sure they are the exact perfect size (not too loose and not too tight) so that they flatter your figure, and still give your skin room to breathe.
These type of thigh high stockings can become super expensive and run anywhere up to a few hundred dollars for a pair. This poor girl decided to give online shopping a shot and ended up getting these things that look more like garbage bags.
Canada Day is the perfect time for citizens of the Great White North to show their patriotic pride. I mean, who wouldn’t be proud of the country that dominates the world in maple syrup so much that it even put a maple leaf on its flag?
Oh, and they gave us Wayne Gretzky too. Anyway, this unlucky Canadian ended up ordering a shirt that looks more fit for a teenage girl than a hairy, grown man. He still rocks it anyway!
Phone (And Face) Cover
Getting a specially made phone case of you and your bestie so that you can look at a pic of you two together whenever you take out your phone – that’s definitely a sweet gesture.
But what’s not so sweet is the bizarre way this case arrived. The weirdest part of the whole incident is that the placement seems to be intentional – maybe the printers thought it was an unflattering photo of the friend and they wanted to spare him the embarrassment?
Judging by this guy’s hat, it seems like he’s a major football fan. And as all football fans know, having a comfy chair to sit and watch the game in is a major part of the sport.
For this poor guy, however, the leather armchair he ordered wasn’t exactly what he expected. Instead of getting the perfect place to lounge and drink beer while screaming at the TV, he got a miniature chair more fit for a young child.
It’s a perfect addition for an extra special birthday cake – a small blonde girl who looks like the birthday girl to crown the cake.
However, this mom’s phone was on autocorrect, and when she texted directions for the cake to the baker, her phone autocorrected “blonde” to “blind.” However, we definitely have to commend the baker though, as she provided exactly what the customer asked for. The addition of the white cane is also a nice and sensitive touch!
Most girls remember playing with dolls as children. Maybe we even had an EasyBake oven, which was “heated” by a single light bulb. Is there a chance that this guy wanted to take it back to childhood and purposely buy a mini cooking set?
Most adults, however, have normal sized limbs and appetites and aren’t searching for super realistic cooking utensils for their dolls. However, this would be perfect for someone on a diet looking to cut down their portion sizes!
Beat The System
Camping is always a pain. There’s getting together the gear, organizing, stuffing everything into the car, and then, after arriving at the campsite, dealing with the drama of unloading the stuff and setting up the darn tent (and who can even remember how to do that after years out of practice?).
This guy, however, is experiencing a major camping fail after ordering what was supposed to be a two-person tent. But he looks pretty cozy by himself in there!
Worst Wedding Decision
Wedding dresses can be one of the biggest expenses on a woman’s wedding day – with all the pressure from social media, society, and friends and family to look absolutely perfect on her special day, sometimes ladies will drop thousands of dollars on a dress.
This woman decided to take a different route and order her dress of a random website – however, the risk didn’t work out for her. Clearly, this dress looks nothing like advertised, and luckily, she got a refund.
Keeping It Simple
A great accessory can change up your whole look. Hence, this trendy cardigan which spices up even a plain white shirt and jeans. This modern cape can elevate even the simplest outfits to new heights of chicness.
However, the customer who ordered it was expecting minimalism, but not to this degree! The box contained a literal piece of fabric with two holes randomly cut out. And, for what it’s worth, he ordered it in grey, not navy blue!
An accent rug in a bold color is the simplest and easiest way to change up the entire look of a room and modernize the interior design of an otherwise plain abode.
This couple thought they’d found the perfect solution to brighten up their new home when they ordered this royal purple rug on the Internet. To their shock, though, the rug depicted was just a teensy bit bigger than the one that the actually received! Time for a refund.
Nowadays, with the advent of modern technology and design, it can be harder and harder to spot a counterfeit good from the real deal. That is definitely not the case here though.
We’re not sure who these crooks thought they were fooling, but every element here – from the logo to the font on the wristband – makes it painfully clear that this is not an authentic Apple product. We sincerely hope the buyer reported the seller to the appropriate authorities.
Bowl Of Fun
A ladle is one of those things that’s pretty much a standard size – either you get one that’s meant for home use, or else you’re especially purchasing one from an industrial manufacturer because the ladle is intended for use in a prison or a children’s orphanage a la Oliver Twist.
However, this poor guy ended up somehow buying the gigantic ladle size, which is pretty unhelpful for normal use in every day. He can use it in an emergency in a flood, though.
Sometimes we see a garment on the hanger in a clothing store, and just have to try it on. But after looking in the mirror in the dressing room, we realize that it only looks good on a hanger and not on the human body.
This poor guy ended up with a badly fitting jacket after ordering online. And, it’s probably the least of his concerns, but he ordered the jacket in a classic tan shade, and it arrived mustard yellow!
This unfortunate guy was browsing for Christmas gifts online when he stumbled across a super inexpensive iPad on a popular auction website. Thinking that he’d found the ultimate discount, this poor guy immediately bought the impossibly cheap iPad.
However, when he took it out of the box, the piece of high tech gear he ordered ended up looking more like a children’s toy! Let this be a lesson – if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
We are not exactly sure what circumstances led to someone intentionally purchasing a product labeled as a “bag of unicorn farts.” Maybe they were in high spirits and decided on a whim to splurge on a whimsical purchase.
Maybe they were intrigued by the appealing packaging which described the product as “100% magical, 100% majestic, and100% mythical” – that sounds pretty tempting and hard to resist! However, the buyer wasn’t expecting it to simply be cotton candy in a nice box.
When In Paris/London
When you’re on vacation, you don’t necessarily want to waste precious time looking for the perfect souvenir. So maybe this unlucky traveler just grabbed the first thing that they saw without inspecting it carefully.
But London’s most distinctive symbol is undeniably Big Ben – not the Eiffel Tower, which everyone knows is located smack dab in the middle of Paris, France. Whatever the case, this frenzied tourist actually got the souvenir of a lifetime with this hilarious T-shirt fail.
It’s always hard to judge what size we need when we’re online shopping. Sometimes the model used could be super short and we just have no idea.
We’re assuming the girl who ordered this peplum skirt decided that going with a size small was a safe move, because that’s the size that she usually gets. But the skirt ended up looking way different on the model than on this poor customer! It barely fits around her thigh.
Knock Knock Joke
Online shopping is always a risky decision, especially when the product you’re purchasing is an expensive piece of electronic equipment. This poor soul ordered the latest state of the art big screen TV from an online site, but didn’t quite get his money’s worth.
The crafty crooks were clever enough to wrap a heavy piece of wood in protective film, so that the hefty weight would make the product seem legitimate. We truly hope this guy got a refund!
Short Term Solution
Buying curtains is undeniably one of the most annoying things in like. You have to pick out the perfect set of drapes that matches the carpet or the wood floor, the bed sheets, the pillows, etc. Who has time for that?
This bachelor thought he was being smart by simply going online and ordering the first curtains that caught his eye – and in this case, they also happen to be a deep royal purple color. Clearly, they’re not what he expected!
Model Not Included
We’re not sure what world the perturbed commenter below is living in, but slavery has not been legal for the last several hundred years.
We’re also not sure what money this guy allegedly spent 5,000 of (there’s a big difference on how much this is, depending on what country he lives in) to obtain the model. This also could be a poor attempt at a tasteless joke, but whatever the circumstances are, this comment is definitely a giant fail.
Spreading It Thin
One of the worst things about moving apartments is constantly figuring out which stuff you need to buy because you accidentally threw it away. From tchotchkes to salad bowls, sometimes we decide things are better left behind only to majorly regret it later.
So when this woman decided to order a cheese board and knife set, she was in dire need of it. But when she opened the package, she found a miniature too small for even Barbie to use.
What A Snake
One of the best things about the Internet is that you can find literally anything you want, no matter how random, weird, or unusual it is. This gentleman very specifically wanted a belt where the clasp was made to look like a snake’s head – not our personal taste, but more power to him.
We’re sure he was overjoyed to find exactly what he wanted online. However, things went south really quickly. This looks more like a sad dinosaur than a snake.
Distorted To Say The Least
Face masks, inspired by the famous Korean beauty skin care regimens, are all the rage across the world nowadays. This girl decided to jump on the bandwagon and see if buying a sheet face mask would help enhance her skin.
Instead of buying the plain ones, she decided to be creative and go cartoon-y. However, rather than being cute and cuddly, the result is just straight up terrifying. We definitely don’t recommend letting your kids watch this Winnie The Pooh.
One of the best parts of going on a tropical vacation is planning the cute outfits you’ll rock on the streets of a tiny island town while getting that perfect sun-kissed tan. However, in this girl’s case, the clothes she ordered didn’t exactly fit into the plan.
Instead of enhancing her natural “I’m on vacay”-glow, they don’t exactly flatter her figure. It’s clear that the quality of the garments is way lower than depicted in the model’s picture.
When Brenda’s roommate found an unbelievable deal on a TV stand, she just had to strike while the iron was hot and immediately pony up the cash for such a fundamental piece of furniture.
But it turned out that the TV stand she ordered was just a little bit smaller than she expected. We are not really sure why she thought a full-size TV stand would cost so little, but whatever the case, the end result is totally hilarious.
Stilts Not Included
Since garments are hardly ever made by hand, there’s a chance a pair of denim can come into the world with zero human touch or intervention. Most pairs of jeans are mass produced in factories.
We’re guessing this is what happened here when this unfortunate soul decided to order a normal pair of jeans with a standard length of 32″. While this pair of blues might be absolutely perfect for a professional basketball player, they definitely don’t work for your average Joe!
Gender Free For Me
The latest trend in fashion is unisex. Big brands have been rolling out garments lately that can be worn by both men and women. From blazers to slacks, many traditionally masculine styles are now frequently worn by women, sometimes styled with a slight feminine touch.
However, this girl definitely ordered a plaid dress from an online clothing retailer, and received a man’s button-down instead. We know T-shirt dresses are all the rage, but this is just straight up ridiculous.
Brittany ordered this stuffed carrot duo after her newborn baby, Emma, refused to eat vegetables. She thought it would be a good idea, introducing her infant daughter to a doll version of one of the vegetables she liked least, so when she found this item online, she thought it would be a perfect fit.
However, what arrived shortly in the mail was none other than a real carrot with permanent black markings on it to resemble the adorable face seen on the toys in the original picture.
Blown Up Expectations
When news broke that the culture-transcending figure Kanye West would be joining the slate of celebrity stylists at Adidas, the sneaker industry stood still. 2015 brought the world the Yeezy Boost line, which has since blossomed in recognition due to its classic silhouettes.
However, Kanye is not known for his cheap taste, and so many fans cannot afford the hopping trend. For this reason, they turn to cyberspace for a cheaper alternative solution. Unfortunately, these disproportional shoes are far from looking like the original brand.
Sorry, Not Sorry
While a lot of these online shopping hiccups can be a purely innocent mistake, some people know selling stuff online is a quick and relatively easy way to make money.
Shopping online has a lot to do with trust – after all, the consumer does not even really see the product until after they have paid and it arrives on their doorstep. Unluckily for this buyer, he too was a victim of online forgery, but at least the person responsible for the deceit had the dignity to attach an apologetic letter.
Love These Loafs
Most commonly known as loafers or slippers, slip-on shoes are typically low, lace-less footwear that are high in comfort. The style has a moccasin construction and is widely favored by those who choose comfort above all.
However, whoever sold these shoes definitely had the term confused with “a loaf of bread,” since evidently the two were mixed up to form this unidentified merge. Not that the bread-based shoes aren’t comfortable, but walking on bread seems slightly off.
Futuristic films always show the possibility of downsizing everything to make human life easier. Even a three-course meal was offered in the shape and size of a tablet on Charley and the Chocolate Factory, and it seems whoever sold this tiny edition of the well-known video game console PlayStation was very enthused about trying out the same thing.
Disappointingly for the poor customer who received this console, however, the technology available is still not advanced enough to make something this small work.
Makeup Your Mind
Jenna could not figure out whether what she received in the post office was too hilarious or upsetting, so she took a picture of the unidentified object she received and turned to her social media account to express her feelings.
She expected makeup to arrive after ordering it online, but instead, it seems as though she received some sort of a weird toy in the shape of a chipmunk, buried inside a plastic egg. If we were her, we would stay on the safe side and throw it away.
Nowadays, people don’t consider their dogs to simply be pets – they are valued members of the family who are adored and spoiled as much as human children.
As the temperatures dropped in winter time, this concerned dog owner wanted their precious pooch to be as comfortable as possible. So they ordered a doggie sweater from an online dog specialty fashion boutique. However, this particular jacket seems more suited for a miniature Chihuahua or Teacup Terrier than this canine!
Cat’s Out Of The Bag
It’s what all parents are used to – hearing about the hottest new trend at school from their kids, followed by the kids’ excessive whining, and finally, the eventual giving in and purchasing of said trendy item (which will promptly be forgotten about next season.)
This kind mom decided to order an authentic Converse backpack for her son so he could fit in at school – however, what came out of the box ended up being fit for a small pet!
There are dog people, and then, there are cat people. Cat people tend to like to show off their passion for the world’s kitties, sometimes rocking everything from cat print dresses to cat purses.
We understand this woman is a little less enthusiastic and decided to order a set of subtle rings with cat silhouettes. The color looks a bit off – one cat, in particular, looks like he’s lived through a comical cartoon bomb explosion or something like it!
A crochet crop top is the ultimate summer timepiece, perfect for a beach or poolside cover-up at a moment’s notice. However, Christy left a 1-star review of the top on Amazon with the following explanation:
“My 16-year-old daughter bought this thing. It is ridiculously small..Here is a picture of our cat wearing it….it does cover all of the cat’s nipples. However, she hates the weave. In summary, do not buy this, even for your cat.”
A Bug’s Life
We have seen some pretty strange outfits on shoppers down the aisles of Walmart but this one is perhaps the most questionable. While we can deal with the off-the-shoulder tie dye shirt and the large gold hair bow, it’s the stuffed centipede on her leg which is really concerning us. Maybe she had a certain fondness for the insect and it’s just something she always incorporates into her outfit everyday? It would probably be more appropriate on a young child.
Well, This Is Different
Wal-Mart is clearly full of outrageous characters, and the standard Wal-Mart photo sesh always seems to catch the strangest, least attractive and definitely worst-dressed examples of humanity. There are so many examples of strange people in Wal-Mart that seems like 100% of people shopping there are perpetually in various stages of undress, picking a wedgie, having a baby or just generally not looking great. So you might find that it’s actually incredibly strange to see beautiful, normal looking women just behaving normally in a Wal-Mart setting.
In recent years, wedding venues have become outrageous and people have strived to have the most unusual wedding possible in the craziest of locations. However, one place that you’d never expect a wedding to be is in Walmart. This couple decided to have their wedding photos taken in the photo booth in Walmart, forgoing an expensive wedding photographer and using a $4 booth in the middle of the store. While it wouldn’t be our first choice to tie the knot, we hope they live a long and happy life together.
We all know that most girls dream about their perfect wedding since they’re just little kids. These preparations include everything from flowers to napkin colors to tablecloths. This couple didn’t have to do any of that, though! They just saved themselves the extra headache, and had all the centerpieces picked out for them. They chose the intimate venue of Walmart to say their vows and tie the knot, and kept the guest list very minimal. Hey, as long as they’re happy!
This lady stood out in the sea of sweatpants and jeans that people usually wear to the megastore that is Walmart. She chose to wear a mini skirt, a tank top, and SUPER high heels. Those look so hard to walk on! Maybe that’s why she stopped for a quick break and started reading a random magazine instead of walking around in those heels. It’s hard being a woman, and if she wants she can wear heels! Her presence at the store caught this other shopper’s eye, which made for a fabulous photo.
Like Father Like Daughter
When people say “like father, like daughter,” they are comparing the similarities between the family members and saying that they are incredibly alike. In this instance, this father misunderstood the saying and took it quite literally by wearing his daughter’s clothing. Leggings under jean shorts is not a good look whether you are a young girl or a father, so that’s probably one of the biggest fashion crimes he committed here. Go for your own closet next time, sir!
Don’t Fret, I Have A Ferret
We have seen pets from turtles to monkeys to cats being brought to Walmart, but this is perhaps the most bizarre of all. This man decided to bring his pet ferret while doing a little bit of shopping on a Sunday afternoon. The ferret looks to be rather placid while being wheeled around Walmart, but due to the strange occurrences that happen in Walmart, other shoppers didn’t seem to look twice at the strange pet.
If you were walking past this shopping cart, you couldn’t help but find it completely adorable. This woman was clearly a dog lover and didn’t want to leave her four-legged best friends at home, so brought them along for the trip. At least she was responsible and kept them in the shopping cart rather than letting them roam the aisles freely. However, there is some clear favoritism going on here by putting one of the dogs in the child seat.
Have you ever had that moment when you’re in the middle of tie-dying your T-shirt and suddenly realize you need to pick up some stuff from Walmart? Well, this guy did exactly that, not even having any time to wipe the paint off of his face. The look on his face when he realizes that someone has taken a picture is comedy gold-literally and figuratively. We hope he got his supplies quickly so that he could finish coloring the rest of his clothing.
Fashion is all about expressing yourself in any way you want to. We can’t figure out if this was a fashion forward trend or a bad mistake. Either this guy wanted to make his clothes a lot more cool and hip, or he got dressed in the dark that morning before running off to Walmart. Although we can forgive his shirt being on backwards, the yellow colored stain on his shoulder is not something that should be replicated.
These Jorts Were Made For Wearing
This man came straight to Walmart from his workout in his living room, watching Jane Fonda show off her best 80’s fitness moves. At least that’s what we think happened as he looks to have come straight from that era. There isn’t really another explanation for wearing a sweat band, short jean shorts and a bright pink polo short on a normal day. However, as far as outfits go, it’s not the worst that we have seen!
There are some fashion victims who are so into designer labels but can’t afford them so think of ways around donning the notable names. This woman was one of those people and although she wanted to show off her designer clothing, she couldn’t afford it. Instead, she was creative and wrote down the designer name on a piece of paper and stuck it to the back of her boots. Sorry lady, you’re not fooling anyone with this one.
It seems that many people choose to bring their exotic pets to Walmart on a shopping spree. This woman was seen cradling her pet monkey down one of aisles. Animals can truly become a part of a family and this woman evidently considered her monkey one of her own and didn’t want to leave him at home. Her primate child looks incredibly comfortable in the mother’s arms. It looks just like a newborn, so it’s pretty understandable that she brought it with.
Come On Cameo
These people just wanted to go and play video games for free in Walmart without being seen, so took the initiative to wear camo. While it seems like a great idea in theory, their attire wasn’t fooling anyone and they would have needed to dress in something more appropriate to Walmart if they intended on hiding themselves. Date night can often be expensive, especially if they happen often so this couple made the use of their local Walmart to cut costs.
We’re not really sure what triggered this plunger trend, but it looks to be catching on more than you would imagine. People turn up at Walmart, purely with the intention to stick plungers on their bodies and snap pictures of it to post on social media. We hope this is just a phase, just like the planking one, because Walmart won’t be too happy when they realize why all this attention had been brought to their store.
Legs For Days
When you have a great feature on your body, it is common to show it off and wear clothes that accentuate it. This guy was really proud of his long legs so showed them off by wearing a skirt and heels. While this might not be the most appropriate outfit to wear to Walmart, we can’t help but commend him for being able to browse the store in six-inch heels-that is a gift. If he wanted to draw attention to himself, he succeeded.
Call Me Madame
Being politically correct nowadays can be incredibly difficult with all the terminology and appropriate sayings that come along with gender identities. This man was fed up with people referring to him as the wrong gender so decided to make it perfectly clear for everyone around him. The sign on his back said “I am a woman,” to stop any more shop assistants from coming up to him and saying “Excuse me sir, can I help you?”
Pants On The Ground
In fairness to this man, he wouldn’t be the first nor last person to remove his pants to try things on in the middle of Walmart. It really isn’t that hard to walk over to the designated fitting rooms to try clothes on, but time and time again, people insist on undressing in the middle of the aisle. Things weren’t going so well, and it appears that the dress didn’t fit him in the way he wanted it to and caused quite the stir.
Return Of The Mask
Have you ever had that moment when you’re in the middle of getting ready for a night out and you realize you have to buy groceries immediately? Yeah, we haven’t either, but this woman did and decided to put her facial on hold to drive to her local Walmart for some shopping. Judging by the photo, many other shoppers were quite taken aback when she walked into the store as she received some less than welcoming looks.
Hot In Here
Summer in the South can be incredibly hot and many Southerners risk the hot rays of the sun and don’t apply protection. This woman was a prime example of why it is important to wear sunscreen while enjoying the outdoors. To make matters worse, she has gone shopping at Walmart while ignoring her skin condition. We can only hope that she was shopping for aloe vera or aftersun because that lobster colored skin does not look comfortable!
You See Me Rollin’
Any woman will understand the struggle of having to keep hair rollers in for hours to achieve the perfect curls, right in time before your big event. This lady was in the middle of a beauty routine and needed a quick stop at Walmart before getting dressed for her event. Although it looks bizarre to so many people around you that have no idea what is on your head, other women know the struggle. It’s all worth it in the end!
By Cupid’s Bow
Love had no limits and this photo has proven that Cupid will travel to the most mundane of places! This guy wanted to spread the love as Valentine’s Day was approaching and chose to target Walmart as his latest location to help people find their love match. His outfit consisting of sparkly heart antennae, angel wings, and heart glasses was the perfect attire to get people loved up. He clearly wears his heart on his sleeve.
I’m Blue Da Ba Dee
Everyone has a favorite color but some people take it to extremes. This woman is guilty of that as she covered her body in blue, going so far to wear a blue wig to match the whole outfit. This style, however, was not a one off and this woman was often seen roaming Walmart dressed in blue everything, so much so that the employees named her “blue lady.” Here we see her buying blue toys to decorate her house.
Classing It Up
Party planning can be incredibly hectic so it isn’t unusual to find that you’ve missed something on your list. It’s always useful to have someone else on hand to run to the store to pick up some last minute supplies. This man was doing exactly that as his wife had forgotten to buy iced tea before her big event. While everyone else was baffled at the man’s outfit, the party had a Scottish theme and it was only appropriate that the host wore a kilt.
Cheaper By The Dozen
Mothers can often be increasingly annoying and ask for family photos at any time, any place. When this mother asked her kids to take a photo in Walmart, they were less than thrilled and questioned why they would need to document their shopping trip. Quick thinking, the kids found some huge animal heads and placed them on all of their heads, their father included, and then agreed to pose for the photo. Not ideal for the holiday card.
Customer Of The Century
Some people don’t believe in dressing down for any occasion, and this woman was one of them. She needed to make a quick run to Walmart to pick up some supplies but refused to be seen without full makeup, a blowout and a fancy dress on. You really never know who you’re going to run into in Walmart and in case her Prince Charming was there, she needed to look the part. It’s no surprise that her outfit went viral.
It’s A Miracle!
We have seen other Walmart shoppers making use of the electric carts when they are not intended for them before, but this one was amongst the funniest. Other shoppers don’t bat an eye lid when they are utilized but when they stumble across situations like this, you can’t help but laugh. If she was trying to convince people that she was in fact handicapped and needed to make use of the cart, she sure was not doing a good job!
Make (Hair) Do
Hair trends come and go throughout the years and some even make us look back and question how it ever came in to fashion, but this one was never and will never be popular. Whether this was a huge mistake with a pair of scissors or an intentional hair ‘do, we’re not sure, but let’s hope that its the former. Either way, good for this guy for showing his face in public, we would probably have resorted to a hat if we were him!
Instead of throwing away an old pair of shoes that weren’t needed anymore, this woman decided to make use of her old shoes and jazz them up a little bit. Who needs sandals when you can have sneaker sandals? Thinking about it from a comfort and practical perspective, this woman is really on to something with her new design, but do we think it will catch on? That’s a straight no. Save it for the Walmart trips and burn them on any other occasion!
This guy must be in the Guinness Book of Record’s for longest and thickest dreadlocks, but if he isn’t, it’s obvious their current record holder is about to be beaten. If you aren’t so familiar with the hairstyle, dreadlocks are incredibly unhygienic to maintain and takes a lot of time and dedication to getting it to look like that. This man’s has been in for so long that is beginning to look like a tail on his head.
Quinn Of Walmart
We hope this was taken around Halloween, otherwise this would be slightly questionable. Although, judging by the surroundings, it is not the holiday season. Perhaps this person just wanted to express themselves through their clothes?
Walmart shoppers are known for bringing their pets in as the store has no ban on it, but some people take it to extremes. In this case, these people decided to bring their pet turtle with them. Not only would this slow down the shopping process considerably, but turtles are not supposed to be on leashes, so we can’t say that bringing him was for his own benefit. While some animals get separation anxiety, turtles don’t seem to so he could have probably been left at home.
Driving Miss Cart
Don’t deny that when shopping at Walmart you walk in and see the electric carts and a part of you wants to grab one and whizz around the store. Well, these women decided to do exactly that, but take it one step further and proceed to make an electric cart line. While these carts are intended for those who are incapable to walk around the store, but we can’t help but feel a little jealous of these women’s Walmart shenanigans.
Tail As Old As Time
Everyone is entitled to their own unique style but this man appeared to take it to new levels. What would make someone choose to attack a fox tail to their casual outfit of jeans, a plain white tee and sneakers we’re not so sure, but each to their own. We hope he fulfilled his deepest desire to wear this in public, but we can only imagine what bizarre things happen behind closed doors!
A Woman With A Cause
If you can bear to look at this picture without vomiting, well done to you. We have no idea what would possess someone to grow their fingernails this long, the dirt and bacteria is incredibly unhygienic, not to mention the fact that we just don’t know how she gets basic chores done. Even using your cell phone or getting money out of your wallet, we just don’t know how it’s done and in all honesty, we don’t really want to find out.
Real Life Thriller
If you were walking past this in Walmart there is no question that you would think that Michael Jackson has been resurrected. Your second question would probably be what is the King of Pop doing in Walmart? Well, you might be surprised to find out that it is not actually the late singer, it is just a very uncanny lookalike. Perhaps this man does this for a living and on the way back from one of his appearances needed to pick up some groceries?
You might be familiar with signs that say beware of the dog when the owner wants to warn you of their dog’s temperament, but not really a baby! For some reason, this baby’s chair reads “please do not touch the baby!” We have absolutely no idea why a parent would put that on their baby’s chair and we can only hope that no stranger would even want to touch someone else’s baby without permission. Either way, you’ve been warned!
Ripped jeans seem to be all the rage right now and everyone seems to be rocking the latest fashions but there are those who just take it too far. If you are someone that wears ripped jeans you will understand the struggle when everyone asks you why you don’t throw away your torn jeans. This woman is asking for it, the rips are too much and she should really consider replacing them. Let’s hope the ripped jean trend doesn’t get to this point!
Meat Me There
Some people work incredibly difficult hours that when they can find the time to sit back and relax, they will take it whenever, wherever.
This woman was at that point of needing a break and she saw Walmart as the perfect opportunity to take it. However, we can’t quite comprehend her decision to cover herself with meat inside the fridge. Of course everyone is entitled to their own decisions and preferences but this one is just exceptionally bizarre.
Just because he’s Captain America, doesn’t mean he gets his groceries for free! The superhero turned up to Walmart looking less than happy, in his full suit. Maybe his most recent fight did not go as planned or perhaps he was late for some life-saving activities? Either way, the cashier probably should have exerted himself more when checking out Captain America, he is not your average Walmart shopper. Whether he will return having experienced this, we’re not so sure.
Love Me Some Lizard
We’ve all been there when you are leaving your house and your pet gives you those eyes as if to say “please don’t leave me!” Sometimes you just feel too guilty about leaving so you resort to different ways to bring your pet into public places. This woman had those feelings with her pet lizard, who had too much separation anxiety. He liked to perch on her head and shoulders but we can’t help but think that other Walmart shoppers were terrified.
We would like to hope that Easter came early this year otherwise this outfit would be absolutely ridiculous (not that it isn’t already!) This man went all out for his Walmart shopping trip, making a custom suit compete with every bunny toy and Easter egg you could think of. The festive outfit garnered plenty of attention from children, we just hope the parents reinforced the ruling of never to talk to strangers! There seems to be something suspicious going on.
Eye Am Watching You
Tattoos are for life and there are times when we question if the person knew what they were getting into when they put them on their body. What decision led this man to put an eye on the back of his head we are not so sure about but if the idea was to scare of others, he definitely succeeded. Other shoppers at Walmart must have been terrified when walking behind him thinking that his third eye is watching them.
Santa and Mrs. Claus
‘Tis the place to be jolly, it seems. Santa and Mrs. Claus are in desperate need of some last minutes shopping before the holiday frenzy begins, with their work mostly done they can now get to run their own errands. Good thing Walmart has them covered. As the Claus couple make a guest appearance, it just shows us that this place is not just for shopping your essentials and grocery needs, but also for people-watching in the best possible way.
This photo comes from a video in which a pretty girl who is scantily clad, decides to prank Walmart customers. Through her mischievous pursuit, she helps customers all the while being filmed. The men are, of course, so eager to be assisted by such an attractive girl that they’re practically drooling, utterly unaware that she is not an actual Walmart employee. Another Walmart employee is also in on the prank and acts as if she’s his girlfriend, making for some awkward confrontations.
These two attractive ladies were spotted checking out their shoes just next to the fridge section at Walmart, and one onlooker couldn’t help but see what they were doing. How can she just plonk her shoes so close to the food? He wanted to take a picture to show management what these ladies were doing but ended up deciding otherwise. It turns out that he not only showed the photo to the ladies afterward and gave them tons of compliments.
Rose Byrne was grocery shopping when she was caught completely off guard by another shopper, who decided to take an unsolicited photo of her. She thought she could take a casual stroll to her local supermarket but, it ended up being a significant photo opportunity for the photographers who wanted a photo of the star. Rose Byrne was aware of her messy hair, lack of makeup, and casual clothes, and to our delight, she decided to make the best out of this embarrassing situation and pull a funny face.
If you’ve never worn a fluffy onesie – you simply have to. Now that we’ve worn one, we can’t imagine life without it, and some can’t even manage to take it off. That’s precisely what this guy thought. He was wearing his onesie, he knew he had reached maximum comfort and didn’t bother to take it off before leaving for his weekly trip to Walmart. Was anyone going to judge him? Probably, but he didn’t care anymore, this was too comfortable!
Being a part of a loving and healthy relationship often means you’re doing things you would not necessarily do but that you are willing to make sacrifices to make your significant other happy. This couple, seen sharing an oversized Christmas sweater, arrived at Walmart looking cheery all despite not being very comfortable or dressed for shopping. Still, both seem chipper with their decision to share a garment, for which we have to salute them. It is not every day you come across a supportive couple such as this.
If the word comfortable was a person, this girl would be it. She seems to have finished her shower and quickly rushed to the supermarket with a towel still on her head. Perhaps she had a dinner party happening later that day at her place? Or maybe she was hydrating her hair so she couldn’t take that towel off because heat is everything? Perhaps she craved that grilled salmon? We will never know. But kudos to this girl not caring about what other people might think.
This Walmart checkout guy was clearly surprised to see someone buy Walmart’s entire banana supply, and so are we. Who knows why someone would need that many bananas, maybe to bake banana bread or possibly for a banana smoothie festival? Whatever the reason, it’s not every day that customers can shock an employee at Walmart, especially with all the unique and interesting things that happen down the aisles. Maybe this checkout guy realizes he now has to scan over 200 bananas- fun.
Dancing in the Aisle
Listen, when you look this good, why not dance while buying some strawberries? Which is precisely what she did. This woman put on her headphones, turned the volume up, and started dancing like crazy while shopping in the fruit and vegetable section, picking up some strawberries and blueberries. No one could resist this beautiful moment, and as you can see, she caught the attention of every single person in that aisle of the supermarket, even the guy in the back who couldn’t help but stare.
Men are usually the members of the family who get bored of shopping first. Right here we have a classic example of that as it was captured on camera! A father and his two sons sit and wait patiently while comfortably watching a show while it’s likely that their mom is running around frantically in the store, trying to get everything their family needs. If there’s seating by the TVs, we’re sure this must be happening all the time!
Let’s be honest here; grocery shopping is not something we do for fun. We don’t exactly wake up in the morning thinking how pleasant it would be to go and pick up another carton of milk, or how neat it would be to pick up the latest computer accessory. Instead, it’s bloomin’ tiring. So, what do you do when you feel a little overwhelmed? Well, this guy has the right idea. You take a nap just where you are, of course.
Grandpa Is A Beauty
In life, it is important to be your authentic self and live life to the fullest. We have to give props to this man for going out in whatever he wanted to, despite the fact it was a red dress and sneakers. He clearly wanted to be a woman for the day so decided to go with it, who are we to judge? When you get to a certain age you are just beyond caring about perceptions and stereotypes.
