Woman Orders 'Puffer' Jacket Online And It Wasn't What She Expected

You don’t always get what you want when you order something online. Just ask these people. And Twitter user Becky Latham from the United Kingdom may be the latest victim of inaccurate photos, after she decided to order an Urban Outfitters jacket. 

Here’s the jacket in question, which looked like a bargain considering it was on sale for £55 ($ 77). 

Actually, maybe not. Here’s what she got…

Though some people saw it as an investment. 

Others thought it was pretty retro. 

This isn’t the first time someone has regretted buying something online. This woman fell into the same trap as Latham. 

While others didn’t seem to take much notice of the dimensions. 

At least it fits the cat. 

This is just not accurate at all. 

Always read before you buy.

Bath Bomb Turns Woman Into A 'Smurf' And The Photos Are Hilarious

Every holiday and birthday, you’re guaranteed to get at least one bath bomb from a relative who had no idea what to get you. Bath bombs are up there with socks in the generic gift category. Apart from turning the bathtub into a slip and slide for the next person who has to use it, they’re a pretty safe gift. 

At least that’s what Twitter user Rebekah Butler probably thought. She recently picked up a galaxy bath bomb from Kroger that she claims had some unintended effects.

Yes, she’s a smurf now. 

In a caption alongside the tweet, Butler claimed that the bath bomb “dyed” her skin. “I was in the bath for a solid 5 minutes and now I am a freaking SMURF,” she added. “So to everyone I snapchat, enjoy looking at my forehead till I am no longer a smurf.”

Butler wrote in a reply that she was shocked at first, but that she quickly got over it. 

And it does seem to be coming off pretty quickly. 

Butler says she’s going to contact Kroger about the bath bomb, and hopefully she’ll keep us all updated. 

People found the incident hilarious, of course. 

As it turns out, there’s a lot of GIFs that are perfect for this situation.

Woman Makes Museum Exhibits Out Of Roommate's Stuff In Hilarious Prank

Roommates can either be the best or the worst, there’s just no in between. But we’re guessing that Ellen Huet, a writer for Bloomberg, is in the former category.  While two of her roommates were away on a trip, she decided to play a pretty amazing prank on them. 

Huet and the rest of the house grouped together to turn their room into a museum, so that future generations might have some insight on San Francisco life. 

I’m sure this won’t confuse people in the future…

This one could actually pass for the truth. 

Unsurprisingly, people found the photos hilarious. 

Who doesn’t have fun with lamination? 

History nerds were excited. 

Others wanted to pull the prank off themselves.

Woman Shares Texts From Man Who Thought Her Cancer Was Contagious

Dating can really, really freaking stink. Even if you think someone is super cute and there’s mutual attraction, there might be all sorts of obstacles in the way. For instance, they could be an absolute moron.

Reddit user lemonlimetotallyfine shared a series of texts that make make you question everything you know, starting with the education system. According to the poster, this guy they were dating asked to meet with their personal doctor to confirm the cancer they’re in remission for is not contagious.

Help. These texts are a nightmare:

Well, at least the original poster didn’t go on another date with this ding dong! People are shocked that anyone could be so ignorant in 2018:

But then someone said they knew of this happening IN REAL LIFE as well:

Are people this stupid? The answer is yes.

Some were pretty astounded with how patient the OP was with this guy:

But most think they dodged a bullet with this guy:

But lemonlimetotallyfine has faced worse:

You deserve so much better, honey! As does the American public when it comes to sex education.

Woman Reported Missing By Her Mom Ends Up On 'The Bachelor'

The sad reality of “missing persons” is that in most cases, the individuals aren’t missing at all: they’re usually dead.

In order for law enforcement to legally declare someone dead, there has to be a body. And if there’s no body, then that individual is reported as missing, unless someone files a petition for the person to be declared dead in absence.

Rebekah Martinez was officially declared missing by her mother on November 18th, 2017, but thankfully she wasn’t missing or harmed at all.

Even though she was featured in a cover story placed by the Northcoast Journal, Rebekah Martinez was never in any danger.

The last Rebekah’s mother heard, her daughter left home in Fresno to go and work on marijuana farm in Humboldt county. She called police in the area to report her daughter as missing, which is what prompted the publication to include the young woman’s photo in their cover story.

After posting the article on Facebook, the Northcoast Journal asked users if they recognized anyone in the list.

Amy Bonner O’Brien, from Trinidad, noticed that one of the faces looked very familiar: she was a contestant on the most current season of The Bachelor. She immediately phoned police to let them know that the woman who was reported missing was currently on a reality TV program, making her not much of a missing person.

Rebekah posted a few weeks ago that she was going to get off of social media and be away from her phone for a few weeks, but apparently, her mother didn’t get the memo.

And then, on November 22nd, a few weeks later, like she promised, she was back on social media announcing that her technology fast was over, she was back online, and that she was going to be a contestant on the upcoming season of The Bachelor.

Martinez, after hearing the news, seems to have taken the whole thing mix-up in stride.

And even roasted herself for this her adorable driver’s license photograph.

The story’s being picked up by a bunch of media outlets, which will only help Rebekah’s career. She’s been captioning stills from the show on her social media account with illuminating messages like the one below:

In her defense though, her account’s been pretty great even before she was on The Bachelor.

Martinez is one of the show’s younger contestants at 22-years-old, and the age difference between her and this season’s main dude, 35-year-old Arie Luyendyk Jr., has a bunch of people talking.

Something she’s not really happy about.

At the very least she seems to be getting a kick out of her Instagram comments.

And a kick out of weird face-morphing apps.

This Woman Is Regretting Buying Something Hilarious At A College Party

We’ve all done something that we’ve regretted in college. But that’s okay, because college is probably the last chance at being young and free that you’re going to get. And over the weekend, Twitter user Annie Swartz of Texas Tech did something that probably seemed like a good idea at the time, and would probably be considered an equally great idea by many people, day or night. 

Swartz is well known for finding all the animals at parties. Whether it be a chicken or a puppy. 

But over the weekend, Swartz went way too far when she found one animal. 

Yes, she purchased a goat. No, she doesn’t still want the goat now that the party is over.

Somehow, this is a relatable tweet for some people. 

Others were just wondering how someone can accidentally buy a goat. Or why this is a problem. 

People really like goats, apparently. 

A lot of people seem to think this will happen to them. 

Would you accidentally buy a goat?

Woman Creates Hilarious Auction Ad For Wedding Dress And People Are In Love

Dealing with a break-up is never easy and people have different coping mechanisms.

Whenever I’ve gone through a split, I found hitting the gym harder than usual and cleaning up my diet helped put me in a good frame of mind. Usually I’m so upset that I don’t want to eat in the first place, and with all of the free time I have, those extra hours I put into working out came easily.

It might not be the healthiest way to cope, despite the obvious benefit of having a trimmer bod, and I probably would’ve had a better time with my break-ups if I had a sense of humor about being dumped or doing the dumping.

Like this New Zealand woman did when she penned a hilariously descriptive Trade Me (like craigslist) post auctioning off her wedding dress, which, as the item description indicates, she did after divorcing her husband.

That’s a pretty savage recap of the relationship and what she thinks of her ex.

As of now, the dress is sitting on a $ 665 AUS bid, and the poster’s unfortunately been forced to make comments on the dress private, as media outlets kept bugging her about the ordeal.

This isn’t the first time women have flocked to private seller sites to offload wedding dresses when their relationships didn’t pan out.

Like this guy was put on blast by his fiance after he allegedly cheated on her. 

Or this other woman who had a zinger for her own relationship in this candid wedding dress advertisement.

Her ex-husband eventually came out and gave his side of the story and the two ended things amicably. In fact, he even praised her blog and and industriousness in turning her own personal heartbreak into a positive.

So it’s nice to see that not all break-ups end with heaping spoonfuls of bitterness and loathing. I mean most of them do, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Right?

This Woman Came Up With The Perfect Prank For When A Guy Asks You To 'Send Nudes'

You know how it is when you’re having a nice text conversation with someone you have a crush on or are just starting to date. Or maybe some Internet stranger who slides into your DMs. They all make the same demand.

“NUDES,” they cry. They want pictures of your naked body and feel completely entitled to having them. There’s certainly nothing wrong with sharing some sexy pics with someone if that’s your jam, but the sheer number of dudes who ask makes it seem like they’re all involved in some sort of scavenger hunt. It’s annoying.

Twitter user @saucynatt shared her own solution to the Send Nudes request, posting a conversation with some unsuspecting, but eager, fellow in which she just kept writing, “Attachment: 1 Image” over and over rather than sending a file. Much to his disappointment, nothing resembling a naked woman appeared:

It really worked a bunch of times:

The tweet went viral, and it’s apparently not that uncommon to mess with men whose brains are deadened by their desire to see digital areola. There were other pranks in the replies; some suggested the download that will never download:

Or the message that never sends:

But most just complimented her on the extremely good troll:

There’s nothing that seems to stop men asking for nudes, so at least enjoy the troll.

Woman Tweets 2008 Trivial Pursuit Question That Did Not Age Well–And People Can't Even

Writer S.E. Sinkhorn posted a pic to Twitter of an old Trivial Pursuit card from 2008. Less than ten years ago in time, perhaps a million years in feelings. There’s so much we know now that we didn’t know then, and most of it is bad.

It’s perhaps understandable then, why Sinkhorn took the question, “Who has never been Batman?” pretty personally.

In 2008, the makers of Trivial Pursuit thought we’d live in a world where Ben Affleck would never be Batman. Little did they know.

Everyone in the replies was upset that the game gave movie execs ideas, but they still had a few knocks to get out against other offending Batmans:

Also, someone pointed out this was a similar question in an edition of Cranium, though they don’t specify the year this edition was printed. But if it preceded Affleck’s casting as the dark knight, that’s scary:
