Similar story, this week; got to choose a christmaspresent, and wanted the box with food. When I logged in, that option was already gone, so I selected another one. Got an email bit later saying they were out of those also.
The order-email is in Dutch, but filled with English tags like "spacer" to indicate which cells in the table should be blanc (and thus, aren't), and "label header", "label side" tags.
With a required field for the telephone (which is not relevant to getting the gift, but may be sold to others) and an emailfield that you have to supply twice. At least they made sure that both the emailadresses should be the same

How did this ever get through QA or how did the person creating this not notice it?
QA prolly being a one-person team, called "the manager", who nods once and simply assumes that the "spacer" tags will be replaced in the final version.

That's how it goes though.
Everyone assumed someone else will find the bugs.
It happened to my house, seven parties (builder, government, some instances whose sole job it is to check the figures...) messed up and my house had to be broken down and built back up.
I'm just happy that they found out during the building and not when I already lived there
Yeah, the piles were too short, meaning my house sunk in the sand.
They tried to somehow make the piles longer by drilling holes underneath the house, kind of like the quick and dirty bug fix, but that plan didn't work even though it was approved by nine(!) different parties.
Ultimately, they replaced the whole team, tore down the houses, and started from scratch with piles that were three times longer than the original ones.
All of the buyers were happy with the new houses because we lost faith in the original ones.
Everyone was reimbursed for damages (having to rent longer, having to delay your wedding because these people can't live together before they marry because somehow God has a problem with that so it was all exactly planned, etc.).
I don't think the building company made any profits on these houses
You might argue that I'm missing a font or some such, but this is PDF!
Someone else might have mentioned it, brain is sluggish this week and didn't read all the replies, but if you don't embed the font in the PDF when you save it will still rely on the client's font library for custom fonts. Or if you were viewing it in a browser, there might be some security settings causing issues when loading the font from a remote server (http/https conflicts).

Guessing "Less meat more life" but they could be golfers, "Less meat fore life". Or maybe they are geologists? "Less meat core life"... racing enthusiasts? "Tire life"
For ages, I've been annoyed that if I have to copy and paste two things over and over in code, it's complex. Why isn't there a clipboard memory? Turns out there is. Hit Windows-V and you will be asked to turn it on. It shows all your recent copies and you can click one to paste it
