While technology and social media have made shopping easier for many people, there are still the cons to it and one of them includes not getting exactly what you ordered for.
Twitter user, Nathi Mapekula, got many people cracking up when she shared a photo of a dress she had ordered alongside a dress she got instead.
In the photos, 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 posted the photos in response to another Twitter user who had a similar experience.
In @ScottyUnfamous' case, she ordered a pair of bedazzled heeled sandals and got a pair that was several inches smaller.

A few months back, Senator Kipchumba Murkomen suffered the same fate after a hawk-eyed Kenyan noticed his apparently-oversized kaunda suit
The senator had attended the burial of mother of his Homa Bay colleague Moses Kajwang where he gave a powerful speech highlighting the need for a united nation.
However, it was not only his speech that left social media users in stitches but also the grey short-sleeved custom-made attire he donned on the day.
Everyone appeared to hold a similar opinion perhaps the tailor could have done a much better job.
But when asked whether or he got a raw deal, the politician cheekily joked he needed to grow some muscles to fit in his new outfit as the problem was not the design after all.
You be the judge.
