Here Is A Very Good Way To Deal With Amazon Accidentally Shipping You The Wrong Thing

Sometimes you can turn mistakes into miracles.

1. Josh Gates is the host of a travel show on the Syfy called Destination Truth and, according to his Twitter, he recently tried to order a T-shirt from the show off Amazon.

Instead of sending me the #DestinationTruth t-shirt I ordered, @Amazon just shipped me hamburger earmuffs.

Q: Aren't you afraid someone is going to steal your #HamburgerEarmuffs? ME: Um, not with a burger alarm.

13. Oh and also, probably best of all, is Josh’s 5-star Amazon review:

This is my first ever customer review of a product from Amazon. On December 6th, I ordered an XL Destination Truth t-shirt. Today, a box arrived with a set of these Hamburger Earmuffs, or as they’re officially called, “Adult Cheeseburger Hamburger Earmuffs Ear Muffs.” When I opened the box, I was confused. My first thought was, “this does not look like an XL Destination Truth t-shirt.” I’m pretty astute after all. My second thought was, “did someone just ship me two delicious cheeseburgers?” But I quickly realized that these were no ordinary burgers. Trembling, I lifted the twin sirloins to my head. The soft fur of the faux-brioche bun gently cradled my ears, and the layers of genuine felt cheese and lettuce all but muted the sounds of the office copying machine. Proprietary Hamburger Earmuff technology blocked out a wide range of frequencies, and I was immediately transported into a quiescent world of zen-like contemplation. Closing my eyes, I feel deep into thought, deconstructing some of the universe’s most mind-bending mysteries such as…ketchup. When I opened my eyes, nearly 9 hours had passed. It was night, and I was alone in the otherwise empty office. But more importantly, I was WARM. The heat from the Hamburger Earmuffs radiated through me like warm, mustard-flavored sunshine. Thanks, Amazon. You may not have shipped me my t-shirt, but you did deliver a holiday miracle.
