This is a good story for those who like to shop online. The online shopping market is an endless list of sellers offering products at insanely cheap prices. Although, there are horror stories from the experiences of online shopping and this is one of them, make sure to read the descriptions of products that you order online, especially if they are being delivered from outside of your country as the return cost would probably cost more than what you originally paid for the product.
This incident took place in Chiang Mai when she ordered a sponge for her newborn baby. The pictured in the website showed a happy baby being showered with a large sponge that was normal sized, about the size of your hand.
When the product arrived the new mom was shocked, the sponge turned out to be the size of her thumb, even after wetting it with water. Stories like this often bring more humor than madness to the buyer, but it sure does teach a lesson to shop carefully, especially online.
The Facebook user shared on Facebook her experience on the 7th of this month. She stated that the picture used on the shopping website was a false advertisement and was not at all accurate or similar to the real product, the only thing that was similar was that they were both sponges.
In the post, she stated “I ordered a sponge online, Oh No! What is this? This is crazy. What is this please tell me, or did Doraemon use it magic flashlight and made it smaller? Is this possible? Give me 3 words on how you feel about this.”.
Dujdao 33 years old from Chiang Mai reported that the sponge cost 47 THB with the shipment cost of 30 THB, together it cost her 77 THB. The sponge was intended to be used for her baby planned to arrive in the middle of this year. The product arrived after 2 weeks as it was shipped from abroad.
When the sponge arrived on the 4th of this month she realized it was the size of her thumb. Dujdao stated that she tried to think positively and thought that the sponge would probably turn bigger after she ran some water through it, turns out it was still tiny.
Dujdao is a normal online shopper, but this is her first time with such bad experience. She hopes that her story will help warn other online shoppers to read the descriptions carefully before ordering a product online.
