When Ordering Online Goes Horribly Wrong (40 Pics)

 

Oh, the conveniences of modern life: from having a computer in our pockets everywhere we go that is more powerful than the ones that put men on the moon, to self-driving cars, we are truly living in an age of miracles. And one of the greatest conveniences has to be the ability to shop online. However the convenience sometimes turns into a nightmare when things don’t turn out quite as advertised. Here are some examples of tremendous–and hilarious– fails in adventures in online shopping.
