What Would YOU Do with This?

A man who ordered a pair of size 14.5 slippers was left stunned when a size 1450 was delivered to his doorstep following a manufacturing blunder.

Tom Boddingham, 27, who lives in Ilford, East London, ordered the £15.50 custom-made hairy animal claw slippers online for his size 13 right foot 14-and-a-half left foot.

But after mixing up a decimal point, the manufacturing company based in Hong Kong mixed up the order and sent him one extra large 7ft slipper – also known as a size XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXL.

However, Mr Boddingham received the other slipper in the size he requested

According to the slipper firm, factory workers assumed the gigantic order was for a shop window display.

Mr Boddingham said: “It was sent from Hong Kong and measures 210 x 130 x 65cm - about the same length as a grizzly bear or family car.

“I reckon I must be the owner of the biggest slipper in the world.”
A spokesman for the British slipper Website Monster Slippers apologised for the mistake, saying: “They messed up and didn’t notice the decimal point, so here we are with a blinking great slipper that’s equivalent to a size 1,450.
“We are making him a replacement slipper of the right dimensions.”

Mr Boddingham now plans to sell the giant slippers on eBay.

Re: What Would YOU Do with This?

lol thats quite a blunder.. wouldnt he have to put a "special order" for that size? shouldnt it have cost more? that's a lot of material to keep it going for the usual price.

Oh, sorry.

Nonetheless, I wouldn't give that away, I'm sure it's really comfortable to sleep in. Or take it in the woods and sleep in it.

IF they realize someone made the mistake, they will either fire the guy, throw him in a ditch with the baby girls or try to bill the recipient more money.

It was from Hong Kong, not China!
