An innocent handwriting mistake has led to a social media frenzy for a Bunnings Warehouse store in Brisbane.
On Friday, staff placed a sign above a ‘Flick It’ light switch product. However, due to small spacing, the sign read as ‘F*ck It’.
As a result, the sign advertised “F*ck It” for $3.99.
Shopper Adrian ChanChan noticed the mishap and was quick to post it on social media.
The mistake sent social media into a flurry.
Chris Fenwick asked “Do they also sell f*** it sausages at Bunnings?”
While Astrid Freebird commented: “Even when read as ‘flick it’ my mind still heads straight for the gutter.”
In response to the incident, Bunnings QLD North Operations Manager Kent Payne said: “Given the nature of our hand written signs, it is unfortunate that this Flick It switch label was misinterpreted.
“Once we were alerted, we removed it immediately and it was rewritten in clearer text.”
Moments later, the sign was taken down.
