Amazon sent some emails to its customers that weren't exactly what people were... expecting.
The emails sent Tuesday told recipients that a gift had been purchased from their baby registry. There was just one problem-- many of the customers don't have baby registries, or even babies for that matter.
The company has chalked it up to a technical error, saying in statements the emails were a glitch-- but not before the mistake caused confusion across the internet.
The reactions on Twitter ranged from befuddlement to anger to bemusement.

Amazon just informed me that someone has purchased a gift from my baby registry. My baby is 21, and hopes it's a keg.— Karen Tumulty (@ktumulty) September 19, 2017

It's not immediately clear how many customers were affected by the mistake. Amazon told Ad Age it was notifying customers affected by the error.
