Morph sat down in the loo and when it was already too late he realised there was no toilet roll, but a member of the public quickly became his knight in shining armour.
Tesco staff came to the rescue after a man was caught short in a Hornchurch store without any toilet paper.
Morph Hollands, 40, of Edison Avenue, was shopping with his partner on Saturday (June 30) at the Tesco Extra at Roneo Corner, when he needed the toilet and it wasn’t until it was too late that he realised there wasn’t any toilet roll in the cubicle.
So whilst sat on the loo with his pants around his ankles he thought the best way to try and get some help was to Tweet Tesco.
Morph tweeted: “@Tesco im presently sat in your Hornchurch store on the loo, it is out of toilet roll. Could you please advise me on my next course of action as I would really not like to resort to the one sock problem that may arise.”
The store quickly replied and said: “Hey Morph, I’m gonna call the store ASAP. Hang tight my man! Which toilet are you in? Cheers - Murray”
A few minutes later Morph Tweeted: “My pain has been eased by my knight in shining armour who valiantly slamdunked a ball of paper onto my head. I am so happy that my socks are still a pair.”
Morph told the Recorder that he thinks it was actually a member of the public that came to his rescue despite his plea for help.
He said: “When I heard someone come in, I asked them if they could go and ask someone for some toilet roll.
“I think they had rang the store in South Hornchurch and not the Roneo Corner one.”
Morph said that this was the first time this had happened to him, and he said that he chose to Tweet the store because he thought it would be the quickest way to get them to respond.
He said: “I thought about just shouting but I didn’t know if anyone would hear me.
“I know how fast they reply on Twitter so I thought I would give it a go.”
Tesco replied to Morph and said: “So glad I could organise the rescue party in time! I hope that this ordeal hasn’t soured your shopping experience. Cheers - Murray.”
Feeling cheeky Morph replied with: “Murray thank you for your prompt help in my poo predicament, I think deserve some free charmin too help me over my ordeal.”
And he said that he got a £10 voucher from the store - which maybe suprisingly he didn’t use on toilet roll.
After the ordeal Morph said: “I couldn’t fault their customer service it was absolutely top notch.
“I will definitely be going back to the store.”
