A MAN has claimed his Christmas was ruined after he ordered a brand new PlayStation 5 – only to find a sack of RICE inside the parcel instead.
The gamer has been left devastated after discovering that the Amazon package he received did not contain a new console.
The man took it to Reddit to report his disappointment by sharing a photo of the package.
He wrote in the caption: "Ordered a ps5 from Amazon, safe to say my Christmas has been ruined."
The picture shows a half-opened Amazon box with a massive sack of rice inside- instead of a shiny new PlayStation 5.
The gamer later updated his post saying that Amazon asked him to send back the rice in order to receive their refund.
One Redditor said: "If it’s sold by Amazon is generally a thing where suppliers send their stock to Amazon warehouses."
While another one joked: "On the bright side, there will be no shortage of rice at Christmas dinner."
