This Woman Requested Kit Kats For Life After Getting A 'Defective' Pack
With great intelligence comes the responsibility to apply one's mind to the world's most vital causes.
Saima Ahmad did just that when a grave injustice landed on her plate.
The London-based law student purchased a multipack of eight Kit Kats only to find the chocolate was wafer-free.
In response, Ahmad used 1930s-era case law to demand a lifetime supply of Kit Kats from Nestlé to compensate for her “monetary and emotional” loss.
In a letter to the manufacturer, the 20-year-old reportedly wrote,
The truth of the matter is; manufacturers owe a duty of care to consumers. The specific duty you owe in consistency in your manufacturing process. The failure to take due care in the manufacturing process resulted in a product being defective. As a result I feel as though I have been misled to part with my money and purchase a product that is clearly different from what has been marketed by Nestlé. The loss I have suffered is of monetary and emotional significance.
The King's College London student was reportedly “trying her luck” by contacting the candy manufacturer, suggesting “if you don't ask you don't get.”
Right on, girl. Get that free candy any way you can.
