Woman orders doormat off Amazon, gets sent this mind-bending travesty instead
A woman who ordered a doormat off Amazon got sent a doormat with a picture of the doormat she actually wanted printed on the front of it.
Comedian Emily Heller ordered a doormat off Amazon. It was supposed to be a grassy-textured doormat. It was supposed to look like this...
A 3D, textured doormat. All normal. Instead, she received this oddity.
A non-textured doormat with a picture showing what her actual doormat would have looked like, if they'd sent that.
WHAT IS THIS??
One explanation - in fact the only explanation - is this one..
@MrEmilyHeller "Crap. We ran out." "Just print a picture of it, and glue it to a piece of foam. No one will ever notice."— Parker Molloy (@ParkerMolloy) July 20, 2016
It got even weirder, when Emily asked them for a refund for the doormat, they came up with this brain-twister of an explanation.
UPDATE!!! Requested a refund and got a response: pic.twitter.com/m0j8rs8dEj— Emily Heller (@MrEmilyHeller) July 21, 2016
Their response reads:
"Dear blank. We are sorry for that, we are afraid that this is because of the screen's display problem. We can give a partial refund as compensation, do you accept?"
Whatever weird mistake that happened in the factory, we may never know. It's a "screen display problem", apparently.
Needless to say, Emily did not accept a partial refund...
I said no. Didn't wait to hear back, and filed an A-to-Z claim with Amazon and got a full refund in store credit.— Emily Heller (@MrEmilyHeller) July 21, 2016
However, at least Emily got some entertainment out of her doormat. She says she can't stop laughing at the weird, inexplicable error.

But that could just be the shock.
@nicolebyer I am still in shock— Emily Heller (@MrEmilyHeller) July 20, 2016
