An Australian man’s comical Facebook rant against Kmart has gone viral, prompting an equally hilarious response from the company.
Alex Gadd took to Kmart’s Facebook page to deliver an unusual complaint: their deals are too good. In the Facebook post, Gadd said his fiancee buys too many of their products, causing a strain on his relationship, the Daily Mail reported.
“Hey Kmart, I am a disgruntled fiancé ....,” Gadd wrote. “I am sick of coming home at least once a week to a new candle holder, frame, pot or pot stand. Along with several other nice yet highly unnecessary items.”
Gadd said Kmart’s large selection was filling his home and even spilling into his sacred garage.
“I need to know how many more designs can possibly be released?” Gadd asked. “A man can only take so much and I am at my limit .... (She even suggested putting a light shade in MY garage).”
Gadd wasn’t done there. He surmised that a conspiracy was at play between Kmart CEOs and divorce lawyers.
“I am sure the CEO's are rubbing there hands together along with all the divorce lawyers who would be getting a huge amount of business ever since you guys had a drastic change in the direction and target of your product line,” Gadd wrote.
“I guess I'm not expecting a response nor an answer....,” Gad added. “As I understand my relationship issues are not of your concern. Simply a rant that goes unheard here at home. Your products are too appealing and too cheap for her to resist and as a result it's putting immense strain on my life. Thanks for listening.”
It only took a couple of hours for Kmart to respond with an equally hilarious post, where they warned Gadd that even greater deals were imminent and advised him to invest in one of their blindfolds.
“Hi Alex, we're so sorry to hear that our highly appealing homewares and everyday low prices are driving a wedge between you and your fiancee,” Kmart wrote. “Installing one of our stunning lamps in your garage does seem potentially relationship-ending, and we're pleased to hear it hasn't yet come to this.
“Unfortunately, we do have new products coming out all the time and the likelihood of them arriving in your home seems high - it may be worth investing in some kind of blindfold before this happens. - Anna.”
