Florida's Pinky Jones thought that she had hit the jackpot when she stumbled upon a $250 sofa that was big enough for her entire family of six. However, when it arrived, she understood the $250 price tag...
Property Manager Pinky was thrilled when she discovered a funky-looking L-shaped couch that came with an ottoman to match. For this kind of bargain, the 36-year-old simply couldn't pass up on the opportunity. Like many online buyers, Jones figured that the sofa couldn't be any different to the picture advertising it.
Jones had intended for the comfy couch to be for herself, her fiancé Joseph, and her five kids. However, when the sofa arrived, she realized it wouldn't even be big enough for her, let alone her whole family. "I thought it was going to be an actual sofa, big enough for my living room," she explained. "It didn't say anywhere that it was for a child and it was listed in the living room section on the website."
She continued, "I would never have dreamed I was buying it for a child. My fiancé was in when it arrived and he said it seemed small. I thought maybe it needed to be assembled to make shipping easier but when we opened it, it was just a tiny sofa. I had to laugh, it's literally a baby sofa."
The worst part of all, is that the family had to wait 10 long weeks and had been "looking forward to it arriving because we don't have any furniture", Jones added. But before returning the sofa, Pinky posted a picture with the hilarious caption "Wayfair, count your f***ing days." Of course, it only took a few minutes for the post to go viral and for thousands of people to join in on the laughter.
Perhaps there's a mouse nearby looking to furnish his/her apartment? Stay tuned.
