We’ve probably all had an experience where we expect one thing but end up with something else. Sometimes it’s no big deal. Sometimes we end up with something even better than we expected, but not always. For example, have you ever looked at a product online and thought it looked amazing but when you ordered it and it arrived at your home you were very disappointed? Another example is when you go to get a manicure or a haircut and show the stylist a picture of exactly what you want but what you get ends up looking completely different.

In the moment, disappointment is real and frustrating, but often these instances are funny learning experiences. For example, you learn not to trust all the pictures you see when online shopping and that perhaps you should switch stylists.

Many people have turned to TikTok to share their “what I wanted versus what I got” stories. Scroll down to see some of these so awful it’s funny experiences for yourself.
