Woman complains to cop about “offensive” shark items at Cape Cod store. Chain pulls all products.


Because I put on the news today and found that all Christmas Tree Shops have pulled “offensive” shark-related merchandise from stores here on the Cape. They attribute it to complaints from residents that the prodcuts were distasteful.


Apparently shoppers like this woman complained to corporate that the items, which included a kitchen towel featuring an image of a great white shark and the words, “Nice to Eat You,” mock shark attacks.


The company responded by pandering to these Ma**h***s.

“We have removed these items from the Cape locations. It is never our intention to offend customers by our merchandise assortment,” Jessica Joyce, senior manager of public relations for Bed Bath & Beyond — Christmas Tree Shops’ parent company — said.

Starting to think that maybe we should all flood every company out there with a constant barrage of complaints just to overwhelm them to the point where they have to say f*** it, no more.

Where do you live? In MA this has been going on for few years already! Chronic complainer is a full time job! What you need is the internet access, single mom status, baby father working under the table, full MASSHEALTH coverage, Meals On Wheels lunch deliveries, and anonymous Yelp account and you are a certified business parasite.
