The employee uploaded the video on his TikTok, where he goes by the handle @maybemackenzie.

‘Once I saw a guy go through checkout with a pack of pre-cooked prawns paid for them then opened them and started eating them as he walked out,’ another wrote.
‘I had a guy come saying he was making a recipe and bought 20 cans of beans ,20 cans of tuna, 10 cans of peaches, and 10 jars of cream,’ a third commented.
‘Nothing will beat the IGA transaction I put through when I was 15. A continental cucumber and lube,’ a traumatised young woman said.
Is this the strangest request ever received by a retail worker?
A supermarket shopper was pleasantly surprised to find the highly unusual request he had made with his online grocery order had been delivered.
The man had asked for a drawing of a fire-breathing dragon to be included with his shopping in the instructions section for special home delivery.
‘Please hand draw me a picture of a fire breathing dragon,’ he wrote in his order.
To his surprise, a worker at the Australian supermarket obliged. The employee enclosed a sketch of dragon, scrawled in pen with a short message.
‘Thanks for choosing Woolies!’ it read.
