Hannah Murphy went out to lunch at a restaurant in Yonkers, New York, with her mom. But she wasn’t expecting to laugh as much as she did.
While they were sitting there, her mom pointed to the table in front of her and told her to “take a look at that adorable Dachshund” who was sleeping under the table.
When Hannah turned around to see the cute doggo, she couldn’t stop laughing when she saw that it wasn’t a dog at all. It was a purse!
In Hannah’s mom’s defense, if you look at it very quickly, or if you don’t have the greatest eyesight, it’s easy to see how it could be mistaken for a pup!
Hannah posted the photos on Twitter explaining what happened, and the tweet quickly went viral with more than 43,000 retweets and 129,000 likes.
It turns out that a lot of people have had something similar happen to them before.
One person sympathized with Hannah’s mom, saying the same thing would happen to her if she wasn’t wearing her glasses.
Another person talked about the time she thought a bag of garbage was a Golden Retriever.
One Twitter user, Brandon, shared a video of what he thought was a cute pup sitting at an airport bar that turned out to be a man’s backpack.
