Boston's Fox 25 reports that nine-year-old Scott Lundy was given a new PlayStation 4 Uncharted bundle for Christmas. But when he opened it, he found a piece of wood instead with the message "from c**k and balls with love." There was also an image of those two things scribbled on the box, according to [redacted].
Hey now, there's no reason this needs to shake the kid's belief in Santa. Just tell little Scotty that the elf that was supposed to make his PS4 was drunk off his ass and has subsequently been shitcanned.
Wow, I don't even know what to think about this.
Part of me wants to make an Ed Edd n' Eddy joke and the other part wants to just brood over the knowledge that there is someone who would do this.
>That doesn't seem real.
I'm sure it happened. I've had it happen myself, albeit with less expensive electronics.
Big box stores accept returns without checking them all the time. They then put them right back on the shelf for the next sucker.
Small kitchen appliances get "rented" from stores all the time then returned after the party is done. You'll find used coffee pots and chafing dishes that weren't even washed well in boxes on the shelves all the time.
Walmart is notorious for this. Target is just Walmart with better lighting. They're equally as shit.
Hell, I worked retail in college and watched this shit come in as returns, then had to rage internally when the manager still accepted it.
"I just bought this new top-of-the-line processor and it had this Pentium III in the box, I swear!" :^)
