Not paying close attention to details has been known to cause some minor issues and on the occasion, pretty big problems. Tom Boddingham knows about the big problems first hand, or should we say first foot?
Boddingham, a 27-year-old in London, was special ordering slippers online because his left foot is slightly larger than his right. He placed the order for a size 14.5, but the manufacturers missed the decimal point and sent him a size 1,450.
The slipper that showed up on Boddingham’s doorstep was 7-feet long! It could comfortably function as a sleeping bag and is about the size of a small car.
Monster Slippers, a company in the U.K., has apologized to Boddingham for the confusion.
“We have apologized to Mr. Boddingham and are making him a replacement slipper of the right dimensions,” a spokesman for Monster Slippers said. A spokesperson from the factory in China said workers thought the slipper was for a store window display.
Boddingham is hoping to make some money off this gigantic slipper on eBay.
“I reckon I must be the owner of the biggest slipper in the world,” he said. “I’m going to sell it online and if I can make a few quid out of it, then all the better.”
