Woman buys furniture on eBay, gets 40 bags of live fish instead

There wasn’t anything fishy about this woman’s package delivery—until she opened it up. 

Jacqueline Johnson hoped that the glass table and chairs she ordered from eBay had finally arrived. The boxes even said to “handle with care.” To her surprise, it was not the furniture that she was expecting but 40 bags of tropical fish. Not sure what the return policy is on live animals.

Odds are, someone out there hoping to fill their aquarium was just as disappointed.
