I saw this tweet tonight and cracked up because it’s so something that would happen to me. I then fell down a rabbit hole of all the responses…each one funnier than the last.
Wanted to share the laughs with you so I’ve compiled the most popular and funny responses here…enjoy!
#1 This is why I like shopping online, folks…
#2 Omg…I would be laughing so hard!
Friend of my daughter’s whilst shopping knocked into a mannequin which fortunately didn’t fall over. When she got home she found a hand in her bag.— Jan Phillips (@JanPhil84432453) October 10, 2022
#3 Several people posted this scenario, apparently it’s not uncommon…
My mum and I were shopping and she was trying on some shoes, a lady next to her said mmmm I’m not sure about these……..my mum looked and said “please can I have my shoes back?” I was laughing me head off 🤣— HMC (@hannahbull76) October 9, 2022
I was stood waiting for my friend in M&S one lunchtime and a lady came up to me and gently touched my coat. She wasn’t concentrating and thought I was a manikin.— 🌱🇺🇦 Chloe Geoghegan (@chloegeogh) October 10, 2022
#5 I would take it as a compliment!
I once owned a beautiful cashmere scarf (a gift) and dropped it in TK Maxx. When I went back to get it they were putting a bloody TAG ON IT getting it ready to sell. I about wrestled it out the poor shop girls hands.— Angie McPhie (aka Flange) (@angie_mcphie) October 10, 2022
I’ve barely been in a shop since I apologised for almost walking into a woman who was coming towards me, then spent what felt like a very long time trying to side step her, eventually realising it was a full length mirror and I was side stepping myself 😳— Ann O’Flynn (@aoflynn1) October 10, 2022
I was once in a shoe shop with my wife and she pointed out a pair of shoes to me that she thought were really ugly – only to discover that they belonged to another lady who was trying some different shoes on!— Aidan Jones 🏴 (@aidankjones) October 10, 2022
#8 Guess her mom never taught her if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!
Did you say anything disparaging. I once was trying a dress on in Laura Ashley and the shop assistant was giving me comments on each one. I came out in the dress I was wearing to shop and she said oh no it does nothing for you 😬— Debs (@DdeM_ILT) October 9, 2022
#9 That couple will be telling that story for years!
I ran to get my hub in Walmart to show him something. I was talking excitedly n grab his hand n was leading him.I hear a woman laughing so hard she couldn’t breathe. Mind you we’re half across the store by now. I stop n look at my husband only it’s not my husband. It was hers 😂— 🌊left leaning Texan🌊 (@kmhawknz) October 10, 2022
Don’t fret. I was looking at dresses at a market stall once and a lady unzipped my dress and started to take the shoulder straps down, unsurprisingly I turned around in alarm and she screamed, for some bizarre reason she had mistaken me for a (rather oddly shaped) mannequin— Deb W (@Deborahw37) October 10, 2022
If it’s any consolation (and let’s be honest, it’s not), my mom once tried on a sweater at a thrift store before noticing two two extra arm holes mid-torso. Dog sweater.— Matt McInnis (@Hop_vine) October 10, 2022
#12 Maybe he was just scared that she asked him to buy her something LOL…
I may as well add mine – whilst shopping with my hubby, I put my arm in his, squeezing and asked would he buy me something I’d seen..I actually felt his shock…it wasn’t my hubby – he had walked away without telling me…he thought it was funny I had scared a man half to death.😂— Trinkle.

#13 Another case of shoe mistaken identity…
Reminds me that some woman tried my shoes on at Nordstrom Rack while I was trying on another pair and walked away to find a mirror 😬— Andrea DeWerd | she/her (@ajdewerd) October 10, 2022
#14 The bargain that could have been…
I once picked up some power tools in a second hand shop thinking I’d found a bargain, turns out they belonged to the bloke doing some repairs in there.— Darren Smith (@permissivepaths) October 10, 2022
#15 Now that’s not something you see in a bank every day…
Totally not same, but up there ref sartorial embarrassment, and a story I don’t tire of telling: my wife spent an entire day in meetings at some bank in Canary Wharf – plus commute there/back – with the pair of knickers she’s put in her hair at breakfast as a make-shift scrunchie— John Shields (@avochie) October 10, 2022
#16 I think they should have played along and started working!
In college my friend and I were yelled at by the mgr in a dept store. She said we were talking too much and laughing. She told us to get back to work and straighten out the clothes on the racks. We were customers! She almost fainted when she realized.— Jaxs05 (@Jaxs05) October 10, 2022
#17 Daughter saves the day…
My local supermarket frequently puts trollies filled with reduced items in random locations around the store. Recently when shopping with my daughter I happened upon a trolley filled with choice bargains. I was just about to take a few when “Mother! That’s someone’s shopping “— Minerva M 🌱 (@Karen38284205) October 9, 2022
#18 Not exactly the same, but once I was in a Target dressing room trying on a shirt in front of the full length mirror and saw I had left the house in two completely different shoes. This is what happens when you have 3 children LOL.
Tried on a pair of shoes in Marks similar to a pair I had on. When I got home realised I was wearing one of the shoes I had tried on and the old one I had been wearing!— Ann Patricia V Allan (@apallan) October 10, 2022
#19 Ok, this one isn’t about shopping, but I included it because it’s hilarious OMG…
My cousin was at a wedding reception and kept feeling her hair fall down on her shoulders. She pinned it back up. Turns out it was the hair of the lady standing back to back with her— Charts & Darts (@YazooCity74) October 10, 2022
#20 Oh boy, that really could have gone awry…
I was in a charity shop, seen a lovely pram started pushing it around the shop until a poor woman came and grabbed it off me with her tiny sleeping baby inside 🤦♀️ luckily I was very pregnant at the time and she didn’t have me arrested 😂— Tweetypie (@clairefergu) October 10, 2022
