Putting the Awful in Waffle

Posted: January 9, 2020 at 8:12 am

A California family is feeling pretty batter-ed after opening a Christmas package that promised a brand new waffle maker — but delivered a nasty old appliance with a previous owner’s leftovers inside.

Brian McCarthy, a Los Angeles-based photographer, hit up Twitter the day after Christmas to express his dismay about the situation, saying, “Wow, my mom sent my daughter a new waffle maker from @amazon and they sent us a used one with the FOOD STILL IN IT. Disgusting!”

McCarthy accepted apologies from both Amazon and the waffle maker’s manufacturer, and said he plans to buy the same item, but this time he’ll purchase it from a brick-and-mortar store. (New York Post)
