With Christmas just around the corner, Amazon will be flooded with orders from customers who prefer to shop for gifts from the comfort of their own home.
And product reviews are a good place to start for canny shoppers looking to ensure they’re not being ripped off – but some might find fellow customers went into much more detail than expected.
Comical – and often deeply sarcastic – reviews found on Amazon include one for an over-sized wine glass that was deemed ‘perfect’ by a buyer. They wrote: ‘It works very well… I’m too drunk to type any more.’
Meanwhile a customer who snapped up an inflatable slice of toast returned to the site to express disappointment at the lack of a wholewheat variety, and a protection device for the humble banana received a lengthy review from a customer, who used it to explain how much their life has changed since purchasing the gadget.
Another, not so funny example was posted by a man who used his review of a Super Mario game as a means of pleading with his former wife to return to him and reunite their family.
