Online shopping can be such a gamble. When you order something, you can’t guarantee that the item you’ll receive will look exactly as advertised.
There are advantages of shopping online, though. You don’t have to battle through crowds, navigate the lines, or face the ‘dead eyes of tellers’ as they ask whether you want to receive an emailed receipt.
And the hustle of buying clothes with your kid at the mall, I can only imagine. Pushing a stroller through crowds with your child, having to say ‘NO’ a thousand times to all the items your kids pick, and the tears…
It’s no surprise everyone is now turning to online shipping when they need to buy clothes for their little ones.
However, one mom from Benton, Illinois, hilariously discovered the t-shirt she bought for her 3-year-old daughter from an online retailer came with an additional design feature that wasn’t advertised on the original item.
Kelsey Dawn Williamson, 23, placed an order for a white t-shirt that featured an iconic image of classic children’s book characters Frog and Toad for her little daughter Salem.
Kelsey bought her daughter countless items from the e-commerce retailer
So she didn’t expect anything unusual to arrive in the mail.
But, when the package from the retailer arrived, she realized there was a huge mistake in her purchase. Yes, Frog and Toad were on the shirt, riding their bicycle like on the retailer’s site, but there was an added bonus that the mother didn’t see it coming.
Right underneath the Frog and Toad, the t-shirt had a “F**k the Police” slogan
Kelsey hysterically said:
“I literally did not know how to react, so I just took a few moments to stare at it and try to process.”
“Of all the things they could have added, why that? On a children’s-size shirt?”
She added that Salem had no idea what the saying means, and she really likes her new Frog and Toad T-shirt. But the mother couldn’t help but share it on Facebook with her followers.
Online users laughing at how ridiculous the child’s t-shirt was
Though most people are amused by it, some people started shaming her.
But Williamson edited her post saying:
“Editing because I’ve seen some nasty attitudes: SALEM IS 3 AND CAN’T READ.
“I DID NOT BUY THIS. THIS IS WHAT I WAS SENT.”
“NO, SHE won’t WEAR IT IN PUBLIC.”
“Why would you take a picture??’ YOU WOULD TOO, DONT BE A LIAR.”
The mother had to follow up again after getting shamed for her daughter’s weight:
“Editing one more time: SHE SEES SPECIALISTS FOR HER WEIGHT. SHE CAN’T HELP IT. I CAN’T HELP IT. MY HUSBAND CAN’T HELP IT. IT IS OUT OF OUR CONTROL. JUST LAUGH AT THE FUNNY SHIRT.”
Haters aside, Kelsey said she still finds the whole incident hilarious, and that she definitely won’t be returning the T-shirt.
She wrote in one comment that she plans to keep it in ‘Salem’s baby box’ as a future memory.
