A woman ordered a Christmas gift from Boots, only to find that some Grinch had scrawled ‘F*ck you’ in marker pen on the cardboard.
Sally Turner, a 28-year-old optician from Wolverhampton, ordered the gift online and collected it in store on November 28, but was shocked to notice the offensive message tucked on one of the box flaps.
Bit of a dampener on your wrapping session which not even Shakin’ Stevens could help with, right? (Okay, maybe Shaky could help a little.)
She thinks an angry warehouse worker, disgruntled at their job, took their feelings out on the defenceless delivery.
‘I’d had a bit of a rubbish day and when I saw that, it probably shouldn’t have but it did amuse me a bit,’ Sally said.
‘Someone else was clearly having a bad day at work.’
Boots said they have apologised to Sally and are undertaking a full investigation into the ‘isolated incident’.
She shared a picture of the box online, tagging Boots in the post.
But she said it hasn’t put her off shopping there in future, and said she does not plan on making a formal complaint.
A spokesman for Boots said: ‘At Boots UK, we pride ourselves on the quality of our Order and Collect service and have been in touch with the customer directly to apologise.
‘We would like to reassure all customers that we are undertaking a full investigation into this isolated incident to understand what happened.’
