LONDON (Nov. 6, 2015) – That certainly wasn’t what she expected.

A woman in London who ordered a table set from eBay couldn’t believe it when she opened the boxes to find 40 plastic bags of fish instead.

Video posted on Facebook showed 21-year-old Becky Smith at a loss to understand what happened.

“(Expletive) what am I going to do with them? What is it?” she says.

“That’s what you get for shopping on eBay,” Smith says as her friend, Jacqueline Johnson, records the escapade.

The pair said the stunt wasn’t staged; there really was a delivery mix-up. Smith’s package went to a local pet shop in error, while Smith received a shipment meant for the business.

Smith and Johnson said the fish are all safe and the delivery error has been corrected.

The Facebook video has racked up more than 4.7 million views.
