The Lopez family was in for a rude surprise this Christmas. A package containing a pair of Beats Headphones by Dre turned out to carry quite different contents. In place of the musical accessory, which was purchased from Wal-Mart, were a few cans of Chicken of the Sea Chunk Tuna.
When Steve Lopez’s daughter requested her dad for a Christmas present, he gladly went to Wal-Mart to purchase it especially for her. Yet when he returned home, his daughter was shocked by what the package contained. Instead of the Beats Headphones by Dre, which she had requested, the gift contained tuna cans.
And the irony is that this is useless stuff for the family since their youngest daughter is allergic to fish. When the angry father went back to Wal-Mart he was even more enraged by the attitude of the superstore clerks. They refused to hand him the headphones and only agreed to a refund.
That was when a very warm human being came to their rescue. A female exec of the company was in town and she promised the family that she would deliver the headphones. Lindsay Merkle saw the news on television and decided to do something about it. She had a few of the headphones with her at the moment and so she decided to give Beats Headphones as a Christmas gift to the Lopez family.
This lady is sincere in her intentions and has said that if she is unable to get the Beats headphones to the family in time, she will ask her mother to drop them at their residence. Now, that’s the spirit isn’t it! At least, it gives off a human touch rather than the cold as steel corporate culture based upon greed and profit.
