Kmart Australia shoppers grapple with an unfortunate detail from travel planners

Can you see what’s wrong with this photo? Shoppers notice a very unfortunate detail in a Kmart sale

  • A travel planner reduced to just 10 cents at Kmart has been ridiculed
  • Australian customers shed light on the situation as travel is banned abroad
  • A shopper shared a photo of the travel planners that were heavily discounted
  • Travel restrictions have been put in place since the start of the global pandemic
  • Australians and permanent residents have been unable to leave the country

A travel planner discounted to just 10 cents at Kmart has been ridiculed by shoppers on social media – as Australia’s borders remain strictly closed to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Australian customers shed light on the situation after a shopper shared a photo of the trip planners heavily discounted on sale.

Each tear off notepad comes with 60 sheets, allowing travelers to plan their daily ‘destination’, ‘dates’, ‘budget’ and ‘things to do’.

“Kmart with the jokes,” the shopper captioned the photo.

Many quickly responded to the thread with their own jokes.

“Kmart is joking… Trip planners… What am I going to plan with it? My visits to the bathroom?’ one woman joked.

Others listed their ‘travel plans’ around their own homes – as some 12 million Australians in Victoria and Greater Sydney are on lockdown due to an outbreak of the highly contagious Delta strain that began on June 16.

“My travel plans for today involve the end of the driveway and the farthest corner of the backyard,” said one woman.

Another wrote: ‘I went to the mailbox today. Maybe I’ll go to the clothesline tomorrow,” one added, “I want to buy those and plan my shopping trips and garbage can trips.”

One woman said sarcastically, ‘I don’t know, you still have to make daily plans for food, wine or coffee and toilet stops,’ while another added, ‘Oh just what I need for my next essential threesome to the supermarket. ‘

Others joked that the planners will come in handy when you can start traveling again in 2025, while another woman said she could get dressed today to leave the house.

“I was so excited today. I actually put on some “nice” clothes because I went to the doctor for my second [covid] yes,” she said.

Meanwhile, some suggested the travel planners would be great as fillers for Christmas stockings.

“That would be nice to stock up on for Christmas presents,” one wrote, while another said, “They’ll make great Christmas presents.”

Australian citizens and permanent residents have been unable to leave the country since travel restrictions were introduced at the start of the global pandemic.

Travelers can only go abroad if they get an exemption from Border Force.
