Mistress Meg and mistress Misty had a bone to pick with this loser. He had been sent and instead of buying what he had been sent, he went and bought cheap imitations of what he had been sent and pocketed the rest of the money. The mistresses knew what they wanted and could not settle for less. So they punished him by slapping him as hard as they could. They inflicted a lot of pain on him and forced him to go back and come with what they had ordered.
