Online grocery shopping. It’ll be convenient, they said. It’ll save money, they said. But as Mamamia OutLoud listeners shared on Facebook this week, all it takes is a tiny finger slip or a microsecond of pulled attention, and BOOM. Seventy-seven bananas arrive on your doorstep.
Here are some of their worst (but also best) ordering fails.
“I thought I’d ordered 1.3kg of chicken.”
Bonnie Fletcher, VIC: “Turns out I’d ordered 130g.” (That’s a grand total of 68c worth.)
BBQ for one.
Michele Bradshaw, QLD: “One single honey soy chicken stick arrived all wrapped from the deli when I thought I’d ordered a pre-packed tray… I was so embarrassed, even alone in my kitchen – it just looked so stupid.”
“I ended up with 10 bags of mushrooms, rather than 10 mushrooms.”
Jessica Greenwood, QLD: “I also ordered 10 packets of pre-packaged pears, rather than 10 pears. I was trying to save plastic and I ended up with sooooo much more plastic.”
“I was sent two olives once in a big plastic container.”
Aimee Young, Auckland: “Turns out I had ordered 10g instead of 100g.”
