Aldi shoppers furious over man's shameless tactic used to buy crate of Prime
| Last updated
Social media users were left fuming after spotting one man’s sneaky attempt at trying to ‘loads’ of Prime drinks at Aldi, despite a rule being in place limiting customers to three each.
Makes the kick offs to snag a Kevin the Carrot seem tame, doesn’t it?
Prime, made by the phenomenally popular YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul, has caused a helluva a stir since hitting shelves, with bottles being sold online for hundreds, hordes of people queuing outside supermarkets and shops selling out in minutes.
So, those eager to get their hands on a bottle or two were delighted with the news that Aldi would be offering them as a SpecialBuy for just £1.99, with a limit of one of each flavour per customer - a simple and fair system, I’m sure you’ll agree.
But that didn’t stop some people attempting to try out some underhand tactics to try and get more than their fair share.
In a post on community Facebook page Hemel Hempstead Community & Conversation, one woman said she saw a bloke open a bunch of bottles assuming that if he had already opened them, Aldi would have no choice but to let him buy them.
The woman wrote: "To the man in Aldi this morning that thought it would be a good idea to load his basket with Prime drink and open them all thinking they would sell them to you as you’d opened them.
"Shame on you. Swearing and abusing the staff as there was a limit of one of each flavour per customer.”
However, you’ll probably be very pleased to know that his plan didn’t pay off and he ended up leaving empty handed.
The woman continued: "Well done to the staff at Aldi for taking them off of him and not allowing him to buy them. Because of your greed some kids missed out.”
Fellow Facebook users were also furious over the man’s actions with one person branding him ‘pig of the week’ and an ‘a-hole’, while others praised Aldi for their response.
I think if, as an adult, your life gets to this point you really need to put the £1.99 drinks down, leave the supermarket, go home and take a good long look at yourself in the mirror.
LADbible has reached out to Aldi for comment.
Unfortunately, many shoppers were also left empty-handed as the drinks sold out within hours of opening, with Aldi issuing an apology to disappointed customers.
"We’re sorry that some customers were unable to get their hands on this product, however, demand has been extremely high.
"We limited purchases to one of each variant per customer so that as many customers as possible had a chance to buy it."
