So many socks, so little time.
The struggle is real when it comes to Christmas shopping – just ask Jackson Wade Knight. The teenager from Georgia recently asked his girlfriend, Haven Prevatt, what she wanted for the holidays, and her request was simple enough: some fuzzy socks.
He was happy to oblige, of course, and ordered her a dozen fuzzy socks and some jewelry. However, when the 18-year-old received the package the following week, he immediately knew something had gone wrong.
Knight says: “There was a really large package. Nothing I ordered should be that big. It was like three feet long and a foot tall. I was like, ‘I wonder what this is?'” As it turns out, the teen inadvertently ended up with a lot more than he paid for: 144 (instead of 12) pairs of socks.
Finding the sock mishap funny, Knight posted about it on Twitter and people are loving everything about it:

The teen adds that he is not planning to keep all 144 pairs of socks “since I didn’t pay for them.” Knight concludes: “I know some people were saying I could make a mad profit off them, but I think I’d rather play Santa Claus and either give them to my friends and cousins or go bring them to a homeless shelter.”
