Some people are dumb, some people are smart. It’s hard to tell whether the guy in this story is smart or if the staff at Lincoln’s Aldi store are dumb. Either way, the two worked together to create the funniest story this week.
This unidentified man legit walked into an Aldi on January 2, picked up a television from the shelf, carried it to the till and asked for a refund. He then left the shop £329.99 richer than when he went in. This guy is an icon.
Apparently shop staff didn’t clock the guy picking up the tv and probably assumed it was an unwanted Christmas gift, which would explain how the guy got away with getting a refund without a receipt. He even met with the manager for a chat and shook the guy’s hand.
Apparently the feds are investigating the situation, so let’s hope this guy is wise enough to do his grocery shopping in Tesco for a bit.
