Angry letter found on Coles cross buns
A buyer who was particularly convinced that the cross buns were on display at Coles left a terse letter on a package for other consumers to find.
Few things are certain in life: death, taxes, and the annual debate over how to sell hot rolls from supermarkets in the days after Christmas.
Like clockwork, fury unleashed online this week after a shopper discovered a cranky handwritten note stuck to a six-pack of chocolate Easter buns inside a Perth Coles.
“The last time I checked, the celebration of the birth and death of Jesus was not separated by less than a month,” read the terse letter, written on a flowery notepad.
In the hours after the image was shared on Facebook, passionate consumers took part in the age-old discussion.
Of the more than 700 people commenting on the post, many nodded at the unnecessary aggressive tone.
“Imagine being angry with bread with a cross on it,” one person wrote.
“I’ll have hers if she prefers to wait until Easter,” someone else said.
“Who knew it would be upset by something that vaguely represents their religion on display for more days of the year? A third wrote.
Others were incredulous that anyone would go to the trouble of writing a note to stick on a singular package of hot rolls at Coles.
“Imagine this being put out by a bakery item,” one said.
Many were not at all bothered by the appearance of hot buns on the shelves and proudly announced that they had already happily indulged.
“I literally got them on Boxing Day. Who cares? ”We wrote.
“I’m going to hell, I’ve already eaten a package,” someone else said.
Dozens said they would eat the buns all year round if they could.
Coles announced last year that it would sell them all year round, but many shoppers have claimed that was not the case at their local store.
“I welcome hot buns year round,” wrote one.
“I’m going to complain that they aren’t sold 365 days a year,” said another.
