Or it might be a meme. Or it might a bug.
A Facebook post about a washing machine deal gone horribly wrong has gone viral, in part because of its hilarious content, but also because it appears to have become a meme.
A man named Jordan Baker posted the « ***WARNING*** » and was keen on letting the rest of the group know that the Washing Machine Bandit had used his washer and dryer, feigning interest in buying them, but saying he wanted to test them first. He apparently hopped in his car and left once his clothes were washed and dried. It was hilarious.
Hundreds of comments and shares accumulated as people started posting the warning to their own page, whether out of genuine concern for the public or out of complete shock and awe with the story. Later that day, the post was deleted.
Hundreds more shared and liked Jordan Baker’s seemingly innocent and unfortunate warning, and it was also linked to other buy, swap and sell pages from all over Australia.
