If you’ve ever ordered anything online, you know that it can seem like a gamble, as sometimes the things we receive look nothing like the ones we wanted. Think of it like getting a haircut from your hairdresser. You asked for a specific haircut, but you got something completely different. Rest assured that these things are more common than you may think, and you’re not the only one who’s experienced something like this. A number of us have had our hopes dashed by reality, and now all we can do is laugh about the experience. If you are in need of a hearty laugh yourself, or are just trying to make yourself feel better, we’ve put together a list of 45 times that reality crushed expectations in the most hilarious ways possible!
