I spent £160 on an Argos returns pallet – I couldn’t stop laughing when I opened it, it was NOT what I expected | The Sun

A SHOPPER was left in hysterics after opening an Argos return pallet.

Return pallets have been all the rage recently – but whilst some, like the savvy money-saving mum Holly, have been quite lucky with their mystery purchases, for others opening the box of ''goods'' has been a major fail.

And unfortunately, one mum, Sharon Tompkins, from Wellingborough, North Northamptonshire, falls into the latter category.

In fact, her experience with buying an Argos returns pallet was such a funny disaster, she took it to TikTok to reveal the items she was sent – and it's safe to say, it's not what she had expected.

Hashtagged #jackpot and #rubbish, Sharon's video has gone viral on social media, leaving viewers in hysterics.

At the start of the viral video, a woman can be seen approaching a huge cardboard box, before diving in and pulling out one of the many goodies – a paddling pool.

But as she continued to examine the contents of the returns pallet, everyone quickly came to realise they had received a pile of paddling pools.

With a grand total of six paddling pools, the two women in the clip were left in stitches.

One of them was laughing so much, she said: ''I can't breathe. I'm worried my health.''

To make the incident even funnier, a small child then came outside where the duo was and, of course, was wondering what the fuss was all about.

''We ended up with 3 BRAND NEW 12 ft AND 3 BRAND NEW 10 ft sets… and then a whole load of crap,'' the shopper summed up the mystery purchases.

After going viral, the mum said she was hopeful of making a profit of the box which cost her £160 – otherwise she will be ''stuck with loads of paddling pools''.

Some in hysterics, others more intrigued, the viewers took it to comments, where one speculated why she had received that many paddling pools.
