30 Hilarious Supermarket Fails That Will Get You Giggling


Shopping for your groceries can be a mundane daily task, but these supermarket-goers decided to make the experience a little more out there. We’re checking out some of the best supermarket fails and antics that will get you giggling.

Weird Attire

We all know that making it out the door after a long day of work can sometimes be a pain. But despite being tired and overworked, you’ve at least got to remember what’s appropriate to wear in public. This pretty lady forgot her manners and headed to the fish aisle with a towel wrapped around her head. Not exactly a good look for the fish section.

Corn On The Cob Fail

When singer Michael Buble was papped eating a corn on the cob coming out of a store, it took social media by storm. Some of the comments read: “What if WE have it all wrong, and Michael Buble is eating corn the right way?” Another shared: “I was having a bad day until I saw Michael Buble eating the corn from the end. I CANNOT stop laughing right now.” He responded on Twitter: “This is vegetable harassment!!!” he joked. “What I do with my Cobb is nobody’s business.”

Bride in Transit

this one might look like a fail but this bride and groom actually have a cute backstory. They met in this supermarket! He was reaching for a bag of chips and she was searching for her favorite cereal, their hands brushed against each other and the rest is history. They made it back to the shopping aisles on their bIg day to poke a little fun at their first meeting place.

Gender Bender

It’s 2018 and just about anything goes these days, especially when it comes to conventional ideas about gender. This adorable grandpa showed off his girly side by donning this interesting outfit at the local supermarket. Dressed in a pretty pair of sandals and a floral dress, he looks cute and fashion-forward. We’re not sure his beard goes with the rest of his outfit but if he’s happy, we’re happy!

Star Spotting

Julia Roberts should have left her glasses on we think. She was spotted in the supermarket looking a bit worse for wear.

Surprise Entrance

This guy was heading to his favorite clothing store for a big grand opening. We know he was excited to hunt for a bargain or two but crashing into the front of the store might have been a little bit of an over-the-top move. This guy actually glanced down at his phone for a moment before losing control of his car. Remember; safety first, people!

Cardigan Cute

People are always so excited when Christmas rolls around. This cute couple must be huge Christmas fans. They showed up at their local Walmart wearing this oversized couple jersey. They get extra points for looking adorable and for each being able to shop one-handed!

Interesting Wheels

We all know that wandering the shopping aisles can get tiring. This cute granny had simply had enough, with the help of her daughter, she climbed into the shopping cart and git wheeled around for the rest of the trip. She didn’t even mind being covered in groceries.

Hair Trauma

We’re all for expressing yourself, but this cashier doesn’t look thrilled with her bizarre choice in hairstyle. The style is definitely different, but the young lady kind of resembles a racoon. Not exactly, a good look. Maybe she should think about finding a new hairdresser.

Animal Alert

We’ve seen some bizarre things happen at our local supermarket, but this animal spotting just might take the cake. Imagine the shock of standing in the checkout line behind a fully grown llama. Perhaps it was ‘bring your pet to work’ day?

When Life Gives You Lemons

Well this is a big sign fail. These lovely lemons are perfect for orange juice apparently.

Cheesy Snap

We’re all guilty of going the extra mile to get that perfect picture. Whether it’s a great selfie, a picture of a delicious meal or a juicy instagram-worthy event, we all want to get that fabulous snap to share with our followers. This lady might have been going for something more creative but we’re not sure if posing in the cheese aisle is worth a post. Sorry!

Sign Us Out

It doesn’t take too much brainpower to figure out what’s wrong with this supermarket sign. We know that customer service is important, but magically creating a few extra non-existent weekdays is not the best advertising tactic. Either this employee thought he was being funny or had taken a trip down the booze aisle before getting to work.

Go Jan

Women can be jealous creatures. This longtime husband certainly knows that his wife is prone to being envious. In the event that he found himself in a compromising position with another woman, she came up with a hysterical solution. He might have a curious spirit and a wandering eye, but this t-shirt makes it very, very clear just who he belongs to.

Unlikely Creativity

People are always looking for new and interesting ways to market their products. This supermarket employee got extra creative when it came to dressing up the toilet paper pyramid. What better way to make this household product more exciting than to turn it into an evening gown. We’ve got to say, the outfit actually looks pretty good. Well done!

A Princess Outing

This one is definitely going to pull at your heartstrings. 4-year-old Izzy desperately wanted to wear her new Cinderella dress when her uncle, Jesse Nagy, suggested they go see a movie and do some needed grocery shopping. Little Izzy was worried that no one else would be wearing a costume. Uncle Jesse came to the rescue when he pulled on a dress himself. The two went on to go about their day in their matching dresses. How sweet?

Keeping it in the Family

Troy and Tina Clark have known one another since they were 12. The two reconnected when Tina was hired at the same grocery store Troy was working at. The two later made the move from co-workers to loved-up newlyweds. The couple soon decided they would run their very own grocery store. Troy and Tina now have five kids, all of which have worked in their store.

Young at Heart

This picture really made us consider the state of our own love lives. We’re known to be a bunch of skeptics but these two gave us a little hope. Just look at this couple; madly in love, young at heart and still having fun when they’re old and grey. There’s nothing like true love between best friends to bring a smile to your face.

Shopping Shortage

Being short is sometimes a struggle. Your view of the world mostly consists of people’s stomachs and reaching for something on the top shelf is an absolute nightmare. This young lady got creative when heading to Walmart. Instead of asking for some help, she took it upon herself to climb the supermarket shelves to get to what she needed. She definitely gets points for perseverance!

Hot Outfit

Shopping is a necessary task, even on days when you’re not exactly prepared. Halloween might not be the best time to head to the grocery store, especially when you’re dressed up as a hot air balloon. This lady managed to get her shopping done while giving the other customers a bit of a laugh.

That’s Not A Gym…

Shopping is a necessary task, even on days when you’re not exactly prepared. Halloween might not be the best time to head to the grocery store, especially when you’re dressed up as a hot air balloon. This lady managed to get her shopping done while giving the other customers a bit of a laugh.

Just Like Us

Actress Rose Byrne was shopping in Australia when she was caught off guard by the sneaky paparazzi. she had no idea she was being photographed when she made this hilarious face while staring excitedly at a tub of ice cream. She might be a major star, but shopping for ice cream make-up free is an activity we’ve all done at least once.

The Cat Lady

We all know that one lady. That older woman who has a particularly enduring love for her many, many cats. Who is always covered in cat hair and carries a small photo album of her feline family. Now, we understand that humans and their pets can build extremely strong bonds, but taking your cats to the supermarket in a baby pram is not normal behavior.

Impressive Moves

Working long hours can be tough. You’re on your feet all day and you’re forced to find new ways to battle the boredom of doing something tedious. This Walmart employee got creative when trying to while away the hours of her night shift. Perhaps she should look into a side career as a professional contortionist?

A Helping Hand

Being a new parent can be super hard. Between teething, sleep deprivation and toddler tantrums, new mums and dads have to find interesting ways to make it through those early years of parenting. This supermarket is obviously run by parents. They made the trip from the baby supply section to the booze section a breeze for all those new parents.

Mexican Madness

We are big fans of tacos. We might just have found the biggest taco fan around. When this girl’s college threw a ‘dress up as your favorite food’ party, she knew exactly what she would be going as. She appears to have loved the costume so much, she even waltzed into her local supermarket wearing the yummy-looking costume. We think we know what she’ll be having for dinner tonight.

Frozen Fail

Everyone knows that having a dig in the frozen food section can be a bit of a struggle. This lady experienced the hardship first hand when she was forced to dive headfirst into the freezer to find what she was looking for. We hope she was warmly dressed…

Lost in Translation

There’s nothing like cruising around a foreign shopping mall and discovering a shop with a particularly hilarious name. This guy stumbled upon a serious fail when he encountered a shop called ‘Hotwind.’ We’re not quite sure what they sold, but we are sure they didn’t know their shop was named after gas. Better luck next time!

Average Jane

It’s difficult to remember that despite the red carpet appearance and massive bank accounts, stars are human too. Even Miss Goldie Hawn, with her iconic pout and set of blonde bangs needs to make a supermarket run every once in a while. The star was spotted buying ‘harmless coconut water.’ We didn’t know coconut water could be harmful…

Bad Advertising

We’re not quite sure if the owners and workers at this maintenance were joking but this sign is definitely not a great advertisement for their professional skills. If they’re so talented at fixing just about anything, we’d expect them to manage the repair of a silly doorbell. Hmmmm, we’re labeling this one as a definite fail.

Mrs. Claus

Santa loves Walmart on his day off it seems. But we think he came out in Mrs Claus’ dress. Whatever floats your boat. We love the socks and shoes combo, it really adds that extra va va voom to the outfit. Wallmart really is a place where you can just be yourself. You rock gramps.

Lizard Queen

It is hard leaving our pets at home. This Walmart shopper just could not be a second without her exotic pet. She decided to bring him along for the ride to Walmart. She even tied it to her hair and made her own leash. Genius move, now this weird and wonderful pet can come everywhere with her. We wonder if this is against the store policy.


“Come on do the conga.” This is the shopping experience we are looking for. Why shop alone when you can look for bargains with your friends in one big line together. It is always better when you shop with friends and they tell you what looks good and what is a disaster. This is a great way to spot a bargain or two.

Role Reversal

This mom knows how it’s done. The tables have turned and now its this kid’s turn to take care of his carer. She had to wheel him around so now he knows what goes into it and will appreciate her. She is instilling in him a good message. The baby gets to go along for the ride.

DIY Fashion

Listen, we can’t all afford to have the latest fashion trends, and is hard to keep up. This particular Walmart shopper is a genius, she comically created her very own Uggs label and stuck them to the back of her boots. We think we will try this with our clothes and boots, the possibilities are endless. What brand shall we be today?

Monkeying Around

So we thought that taking a lizard into Walmart was kinda crossing the boundaries, but then there’s this. First question that comes to mind – why does this woman have a monkey? Second question – why did she bring it into Walmart? Oh and third question- is she trying to hug it so she doesn’t get caught, or because she believes it is her baby?

Double Identity

At first glance, this looks like one cool dude. Just look at his suave t-shirt and its slogan, complete with red cap and cargo pants. However, on closer inspection, there is something very wrong about this whole picture. Is he wearing bikini bottoms underneath those cargo pants?! We are wondering if this was because of a dare or because he really likes that style underwear.

To Tan Or Not To Tan

These two friends look like they have had very different summer vacations. The girl on the left has clearly been listening to her parents and wearing high factor sun screen, while the girl on the right has totally ignored every possible warning. We really hope that they’re  in Walmart looking for  aftersun to soothe that burning skin. Or maybe some suntan lotion to make sure this never happens again. Ouch! The red hairband really doesn’t help either.

Keeping It Classy

We still wonder why guys like to wear their pants down so low you can see their underwear? Well, this gentleman decided that this trend was not quite for him, so he chose to wear an extremely long vest and tuck it into his pants instead. This way, he can still ride low, but no one has to see what kind of underwear he has on. We think it will catch on do you?

She Can Walk!

Walmart provides some really awesome handicapped trolleys for those who struggle to get around, and we think it’s such a good idea. However, some people totally take advantage of this, as the woman pictured goes to show. It turns out, she probably can walk, and she was just using the handicapped cart because she was lazy. She proves this by standing on it to reach the top shelf.  The “It’s a miracle” caption really made us laugh too.

Embracing Baldness

Going bald is never something any man looks forward to. Most men try to prevent this from happening, in any possible way that they can. Yet this gentleman seems to be loving it, showing his new hairdo off to Walmart. The cashiers really do see some weird and wonderful things don’t they.


Want a sneaker and a sandal in one? Here is how to make DIY sneakals. This way you get best of both worlds. We wonder if Walmart will start stocking these bad boys. Not sure if we would wear them but hey ho maybe you want to give them a try.

Who let the dogs out?

We quite enjoy the fact that people bring their pet to Walmart – it certainly makes for some interesting shopping companions.  Where is she going to put all of her shopping? Also, you can definitely tell which one is the favorite… Hint: It’s the one in the child’s seat.

Meat blanket

Shopping is tiring, and sometimes you just need to have a bit of a lie down to recover. This woman didn’t hesitate to get comfy, but chose somewhere rather strange to do so… The meat aisle. As if that wasn’t enough, she then proceeded to cover herself in meaty goods like some kind of blanket. She also looks like she’s wearing her pajamas, so perhaps this was her plan all along. Each to their own.

MJ, is that you?

You might have thought the King of Pop was dead, but it turns out he was just hanging out at Walmart the whole time. Or perhaps this is the ghost of MJ, haunting Walmart? Or maybe, it’s just someone who looks scarily like the deceased popstar… We think that’s probably more likely. Although we would love to know what the real Michael Jackson would have bought at Walmart. Lots of blankets, perhaps?

Hair or tail?

Holy macaroni! When you start looking at this woman’s hair, you can’t really see anything wrong with it. Then, as you pan your eyes down the screen, you’ll notice that this is no ordinary hair. This is perhaps the longest hair we have ever seen – and we’re still not entirely sure if it IS hair or if it is a tail. How did she manage to weave it so tightly together? It’s like something out of Avatar.

Walking the turtle

We have had lizards, monkeys, and a trolley full of dogs, but this Walmart pet is quite possibly the best of them all. Sure, we’re totally cool with turtles, and if people want to keep them as pets, then that’s okay too. But, to put one on a leash and take it to Walmart – that’s too far, even for us. Where did she get a turtle leash? And what if someone steps on it by accident? Clean up on aisle 3, squashed turtle!

Hourglass figure

When you look at people like Kim Kardashian and Beyonce, it’s clear to see that a big booty is what it’s all about. However, what happens if you’re upside down? If you’re big up top but practically non-existent at the bottom? Well, then you look like this. It’s not quite an hourglass figure, and we like the dedication of squeezing into the clothes, but we’d really like to spend a couple of hours picking out a more appropriate wardrobe for this lady in gray.

Fitting rooms? Pah!

Who needs a fitting room in Walmart, when you can just get changed in the middle of the store? Sure, it’s fine if you’re just trying on a sweater over your top, but we personally wouldn’t go the whole way like this lady. We actually feel kinda bad for her, as someone has obviously stopped to take a photo, and she probably thought she was being totally subtle just changing in the middle of Walmart.

The ferret man

As you may have noticed by now, pets are a pretty common theme in Walmart. We have seen some weird and wacky ones, but this is definitely one of our favorites. This guy is taking his pet ferret to his grocery shop, and that’s A-OK with us! Our only small gripe is why he is clutching it quite so hard. Will it escape if he lets go? Perhaps he should invest in a ferret leash – you’ll find them in the same aisle as the turtle leashes, we’ve heard.

Rainbow lady

Okay, so there’s nothing wrong with someone wearing all of the colors in the world – we do, on a regular basis. We love the big bow in her hair, the rainbow teddy-bear shirt, and even the brightly colored high top sneakers. The only thing we are so very, very confused about is the stuffed caterpillar on her leg, like some kind of leg warmer. Where did she get this idea from? Why has she done it? We have so many questions right now.

Somebody stop me!

We love The Mask movie; it’s one of our all-time favorites. However, we have never felt compelled to run out for some groceries wearing The Mask itself. Oh wait, that’s a face mask right? Did she forget to take it off or is she just one seriously sassy lady who doesn’t care what you think? She needed some apples, and she was gonna get them, face mask still on or not. Yeah, you go girl!

Keeping warm

This man ain’t cray! He knows that if you’re going to go to Walmart in tiny denim shorts then someone is probably going to laugh at you and take a photo. Plus, it can get seriously cold, especially near the chilled aisles. So, he showed everyone up when he had the foresight to turn up with leggings under his tiny denim shorts. He got to keep warm, and nobody could laugh at him for wearing short shorts. Oh… Wait.

Keeping cool

What do you do when it’s a bit too hot for jeans but too cold for shorts? You seek out this incredible piece of fashion, for the best of both worlds. By the looks of things, this is a DIY job, and the woman pictured is clearly going to be the next Ralph Lauren. We love the little pieces of denim that connect the shorts to the bottom bits. Absolutely genius – and she’ll stay the right temperature.

Captain Walmart

Where do you think all superheroes get their groceries and random junk? Walmart, of course! Captain America had to make a quick pitstop to stock up on snacks before he met back up with The Avengers to carry on saving the world. He also seems a little bit annoyed with the cashier; perhaps he was being too slow. Captain America is a busy man, you know, he has the world to save so get a move on!

Your underwear arrest

Most people get away with some totally weird and wacky outfits in Walmart, but there is one thing they won’t stand for. You can’t just turn up and go grocery shopping in your underwear. You’re not allowed. End of story. This guy tried his luck but ended up a bit red-faced when the entire police squad turned up to arrest him. In that position, you could probably wax the floor with him though – just a thought!

Furry Fox

Who doesn’t want to know what it’s like having a tail? This guy clearly got attached to his Halloween outfit, so much so that he now dons it wherever he goes. Mr fox is clearly a fan of baked goods as he eyes up the fresh dessert counter. We must say, he wears it very well.

Til death do us part

This couple were just about to get married when they realized they forgot to get rings! A quick dash to Walmart and they were finally ready to commit to their vows. Or perhaps they were getting married at Walmart (it’s been done before)! Either way, we love how this pair have just rocked up to the store in their wedding clothes. And why not, eh?! Better than turning up in your underwear as we’ve learned.

Keep away from children

Okay… There’s a reason plastic bags say “keep away from children” on them. It’s because kids do dumb stuff, like putting the bags on their heads, and then suffocating. This is like basic parenting 101 stuff. However, this mom has clearly had enough of her kid as she’s letting her not just play with the plastic bag, but wear it over her head. Can someone call child protection, please?!

Birds Of a Feather

When you’re having a bad hair day, fear not. Simply go to Walmart, and put a bird on your head. Simple yet stylish, this lovely yellow and blue bird head will accentuate any outfit and even make you stand out from the crowds. This lady is looking fly and it really enhances her whole look.

Lovely Lizards

Pets are like family. It is hard to leave them behind when we need to run errands. This guy decided he couldn’t take the heart break of leaving his beloved lizards while he took a trip to Walmart so they made the journey with him. Such a happy family. The cashier hasn’t even batted an eye lid.

Street Style

Nothing is more satisfying than when an outfit comes together. With the right accessories you can really enhance any outfit. This guy has really carefully and methodically chosen a great outfit, paired with perfect accessories to really win the look. We have to say our favorite of the whole collection is the nose chain.

Eye Spy

Imagine going to line up to pay for your produce and seeing a huge eye just staring at you from an old man’s bald head. That is quite frightening we must say. It is quite an unusual tattoo, quite innovative, yet would definitely scare young children. We wonder how many people he frightened in Walmart.

Hey There Cowboy

You are never to old to get into character. This man was channeling his cowboy persona. Yet the addition of the gun in the belt strap would frighten us somewhat. You wouldn’t want to cross him in aisle 9 just in case you took the last can of baked beans and that angered him.

Despicable You

Everyone loves the little yellow men from the Pixar movie Despicable Me, it seems that this mother daughter duo loved them just a bit more. Well shopping in costume definitely makes it more fun, and in a onesie makes it even more comfortable. We might try this next time.

Outfit Chic

This is an outfit winner if you ask us. Just look at the makeup and how it complements that ravishing necklace, which draws attention to such a great choice of outfit. It really flatters every curve.

Did Someone Say Banana?

Take a wild guess at what this person was doing with all these bananas? Was it to make a lifetime supply of banana bread? Or to feed a family of monkeys living in their house? Or was it to make sure that their children had a banana to put in their packed lunch every day until the end of the school year?

Davey Crocket

When you’re cold, there is nothing like a hat to warm up your head. This dude has the right idea. Why put a beanie on, when you can put a raccoon on instead, makes so much sense.


This man looks like he has escaped from Hobbiton, or was once a garden gnome and now become a human. We really love this outfit and the flared red sleeves really enhance it don’t you think? We wonder if he has other wizard friends.
