15 People Who Got The Exact Things They Wanted But Instantly Regretted After Getting Them

We all have that one thing that we have always wanted.

Not everyone gets what they want. Only the lucky ones do, but there’s a catch. At times we fall for something just because of its face value and don’t research on what’s the true value of that product or service. As a kid, I always wanted that adjustable bed that we see in hospitals. I had no idea that they are for admitted patients. I ended up getting cancer 15 years later and ended up on the same beds for my chemotherapy sessions. I regretted wanting to get that bed. This dark story was just to set the scene straight. Not everyone gets what they want but those who do, don’t always end up liking what they get. In fact, they instantly regretted their choice. And that always happens when you don’t do your research or the purchase decision is based on impulse. Impulse will bankrupt humankind, I am telling you. At least, these people will now realize to do their homework before getting the things they always wanted to get. Unless you are Elon Musk or some rich billionaire, then who cares, just throw it away and move on.
