- A Twitter user recently shared photos of a dress she had ordered versus what she received
- Identified as Nathi Mapekula, she had ordered a red dress with a wide slit up the front but got an oversized and different-coloured dress instead
- She shared the post in response to a lady who shared photos of an undersized pair of shoes she received from an online shop
While technology and social media have made shopping easier for many people, there are still the downsides to it and this includes not getting exactly what you want from some of these stores.
Twitter user, Nathi Mapekula, got many people cracking their ribs when she shared a photo of a dress she had ordered alongside a dress she got instead.
In the photos seen, she had ordered a red mono strap dress with a high opening on the side. What she got, however, was a poor imitation of the dress in the photo that was ill-fitted.
Nathi shared the photos in response to another Twitter user who took to the micro-blogging platform to share a similar experience.
In @ScottyUnfamous' case, she ordered a pair of bedazzled heeled sandals and got a pair that was several inches smaller.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that certain retailers are known for certain things.
Some are renowned for their affordable prices, while others are known for their quality.
Woolworths has become synonymous with premium quality and the brand generally attracts an affluent clientele.
Unfortunately, these traits also add to the perception that their food items are overpriced.
A funny tweet recently seemed to play off this misconception when a man revealed a small pack of lamb that was valued at a bizarre price.
Twitter user S E P H I R I (@sephiritsikeli) shared the controversial tweet and included the caption: "R734 for 6 pieces. Does this meat have the blood of Jesus?"
The tweet sparked some lively, but funny debate.
Athi Mabongo (@Queen01A) smelled something fishy:
"I buy meat at Woolies but I'm sure they made an error here, this tray is around R150 and this doesn't look real. Their mutton or lamb is free range."

"Lol you can buy livestock mos with that price."

"I was gonna buy it if that lamb was raised by both its parents... if not that, am better off braaing my chicken feet."
