Woolworths customer slams the supermarket and claims he was sold three underweight joints of slow-cooked pork brisket… but can you spot his crucial error?
A Woolworths customer was left red-faced after complaining about the weight of a packet of meat he had bought for dinner.
Andrew Pearce posted a picture of him weighing his 500g pork brisket on the Woolworths Facebook page.
With scales reading 454g, he complained: ‘500g measured out at 454g. Please explain Woolworths.’

He also posted a photo of another packet which weighed in at 462g – and another at 453g.
But the customer was swiftly told he had no cause for grievance because the 500g figure was only an estimated weight, as represented by the e underneath the weight label on the packaging.
Other customers slammed Mr Pearce for his mistake, with one writing: ‘You’re being a bit over dramatic over a few grams… especially as its an estimated weight.’
He later posted: ‘Firstly, I didn’t know it was estimated weight. Secondly, someone has now POLITELY educated me what the lowercase ‘e’ means. Thirdly, those missing grams add up.’
