Online Shopping Fail

I've had a bit of an Online Shopping Fail..........

My Asda shop was delivered earlier and amongst the shopping was a Steak pie that I added at the last minute whilst amending my order for the 3rd time. I was just about to check-out and saw that there was a Rollback on their 'Ultimate Steak Pie'.

'Ultimate' I thought, WOW that sounds good! According to The Free Dictionary one of the definitions of 'Ultimate' is :  "Of the greatest possible size or significance; maximum"

Perfect for Friday tea, along with a bag of chippy chips, I thought. If there wasn't quite enough to go around my hungry brood I would have some of my leftover curry with my chips (I'm used to there not being enough to go around now that Sam eats like an adult!).

So when I unpacked my shopping can you imagine the laughter from myself & my friend when I saw the size of the pie :

Ok so the packaging states that it weighs just 250g but, come on, it says 'ULTIMATE' ......surely it's an easy mistake to make??

    That's why they do it......and we stupidly fall for it!

  5. Oh yes I think that is a very easy mistaka to maka! I have done that before with a diddy quiche!

  6. they fool us into thinking we're getting a bargain!

  7. My God. That is the biggest child I have ever seen in my life. The Ultimate Child. He should be at the top of a beanstalk

    hahaha!! It is quite thick though...

  9. You didn't actually think a pie frommthat size box would feed you all, did you? Did you think that box was a Tardis or something!?? Lol ahhhh that's made me laugh x

  10. I remember reading this first time and I though then that it was ridiculous!

  11. I bought it online, it looked the same size as all the other pies but this one was special, it was had to be the best...right?

  12. ridiculous that I thought the pie would feed a family or ridiculous that Asda would call a pathetic little pie 'ultimate' ?

  13. he is pretty big.....but that pie was still too bloody small !!

  14. but it was still only the size of an was a toddler pie really.

  15. yes sometimes you just see the price and think "thats a good bargain to feed the family" , then it turns out its an expensive snack for 1!! drawback of online shopping I suppose.
