A mom who loved the bedroom rug that she saw online , literally laughed out loud when she got her order.
Charlotte McAteer has been busy decorating her home and fell in love with a huge fluffy rug. She bought that rug for her room after seeing it on social media.
The 24 years old couldn’t believe it when she found her dream mat on the online marketplace Wish.
In the online advert, a model is sinking her feet into a soft fluffy rug and it is appearing almost too good.
When she received delivery in a small Jiffy bag, she was a little confused that what else she had ordered.
When she opened the parcel, it was a very small version of the rug she was expecting – only just large enough for her two-year-old daughter Aoife to put both feet on.
“I opened it up and it is the size of a side plate,” she said.
“I follow lots of home accounts on Instagram and have gotten really into decor and things.
“I saw all these big shaggy rugs for the bedroom and I thought, ‘oh my god, that would look beautiful in my bedroom’ with the size of it and how big, thick and fluffy it was.
“It was £9.99($13) with free postage and I thought it would either not arrive because it was from China, or it’s going to come and be amazing.
“So I ordered it anyway and it came in a little jiffy bag. I couldn’t remember ordering anything that small.
“It’s got these really thin hairs coming off the bottom. I wouldn’t say it’s fluffy. I took the picture of it under my foot because that’s how they advertised it on the site, but the person had two legs.
“I just laughed. I was more like, ‘really?’ rather than being worried that I had wasted money.
“If I had spent £100($130) on it I would have been annoyed, but because I only spent £10($13) on it I think I found the funny side of it.
“My daughter just played with it. I think she thought it was a toy. She’d only just turned two, so she didn’t understand what it was.”
“There was no description about it online,” she added.
“It would have been amazing if a luxurious rug had turned up, so for £10($13) that would have been [a bargain].
“I thought it was from China. To be honest, I order lots of little outfits for my daughter on eBay. They’ve all turned up and they’ve all been brilliant.
“The quality hasn’t been amazing, but they’ve all looked nice. Because it was from China, I thought it would be okay but just cheaply made. I didn’t realize the size was going to be a lot different.
“I’ve never bothered to get a fluffy rug in the end. It’s the first thing I’ve ordered online where this has happened. It’s put me right off.
“I see these beautiful dresses online but I think it’ll turn up and be for a Barbie doll or something. I haven’t ordered online since, to put it that way.
“Especially from companies, you don’t know. Some pop-ups and I Google them. Ones that I do know I’m not bothered about, but the ones I don’t know I check.”
