Woman's perfect response after bungled Woolies delivery

Woman's perfect response after bungled Woolies delivery

A Woolies shopper has taken to TikTok to share the hilarious alternative to triple-A batteries after the supermarket was out of stock.

The video by @gracevp102 which has been watched over 130,000 times shows the woman replace batteries with the next best thing: Bread.

“Is there anyone here that works for Woolies?” Grace asks in the clip.

“So I ordered triple A batteries and they swapped me with a loaf of bread … I’m allergic to wheat.”

Seeing the funny side of the situation, Grace then shared footage of her using the bread in place of the batteries she had really needed to fix her smoke alarm and recharge her TV remote.

A Woolworths spokesman told news.com.au that while their personal shoppers work hard they’re also understandably human and make mistakes.

“We know it’s frustrating when our substitutes are wrong and we apologise to the customer for missing the mark on this occasion,” they said.

“Our team of personal shoppers work hard to pick perfect orders for our customers, but they’re human and don’t get it right every time.

“We’re happy to offer refunds when we get it wrong and will contact the customer to offer one.”

Many viewers found the video hilarious, posting comments about their own experiences.

“We ordered 5kg of potatoes and got a single potato in a plastic bag,” one person wrote.

“I ordered So Good soy vanilla ice cream and they replaced it with cookies and cream,” one comment read.

“I’m allergic to gluten and dairy.”

“You did it wrong, you’re supposed to put the bread inside of the remote,” another joked. “But yeah I always get random things.”
