Online shopping is a gift from the heavens (or, more accurately, from whoever invented the internet). It's quick, it's easy, it's usually cheap, and your order typically shows up on your doorstep within days after you place it. And the best part is you don't even have to leave your house (thank you, baby Jesus).

Oh, the humanity.
Oh, the humanity.

What could go wrong? Well, as it turns out, a lot of things. For example, we sometimes neglect to take a few extra minutes to read the fine print on what it is we're actually ordering.

10. Okay, this one is just straight up strange. Too bad she couldn't pay them with a picture of some money.

11. The good thing about this dress is that there's room for a buddy!

12. Size is relative, right? And he'll have the warmest neck at the dog park.

I think this company missed the mark on "Sized for large breed dogs". #onlineshoppingfail #onesizefitsmost

13. Perfect for when you make meals for all your mouse friends!

14. This is a good example of what you feel like when you step out of the house in the morning versus what you feel like when you drag your ass back home at the end of the day.

15. Yeah, he's probably not going to get a whole lot of use out of that.

The cat is not impressed.

16. There's no way anyone could have predicted this. It's just a little gift from the universe.

17. Here's another one that's not actually the fault of the customer. But to be fair, his ass does look terrific. Serendipity!

I got this tank top on Amazon and they sent me a dress. On the plus side it does make my ass look great. -Priola
