Woman Buys Doormat Off Amazon, Here’s What She Got Instead

Amazon is a great place for picking up a few bargains but, as with all things, sometimes that impeccably cheap luxury you just picked up isn’t exactly as authentic it first seemed. 


One woman who found out the hard way is comedian, Emily Heller, who ordered two brand new doormats from the shopping site, but when they arrived weeks later, the package did not contain what she had actually bought, reports Mashable.

And thus, the one star rating has never been needed more.


When the packages arrived, Emily ripped them open to unearth… A photograph of a doormat glued to two pieces of foam… Oh dear.


The comedian posted her doormat anecdote on Twitter:

Commenting on the incident, Heller said:

They took so long to arrive that I had honestly forgotten that I ordered them. That, on top of the fact that the package was weirdly light, meant I had no idea what I was opening.

Oh, and as if things weren’t bad enough, when Emily got in touch with her twisted salesperson, they refused to give her a refund – because everybody wants a photograph of a doormat…

She said no but eventually got a full refund from Amazon.

Weirdly, it’s a win win situation for the comedian. She got a refund, a free doormat photo, and now has more material for her stand-up shows.


I say, we need more false advertisement!
