An infamous greengrocer has thanked his followers while criticizing the “f***wit Darrens and Karens” that are filling up his DMs during a bathroom break.
Johnny Kapiris, who owns St Bernards Fruit and Veg in Rostrevor, in Adelaide’s east, with his wife Leannda, gained notoriety last week after posting an expletive-filled video to Facebook over the cost of veggies.
In his most recent video posted to Facebook, Mr. Kapiris greeted his devoted fans before criticizing the ‘Darren’s and Karen’s’ who were inundating his DMs.
The quality of the specialties is outstanding, and I want to thank everyone for coming down and supporting us,’ Mr. Kapiris added.
“Yet there are a few f***wit Darrens and Karens, go f*** yourself for the negative commenting,” was the message.
Mr. Kapiris claimed that since going viral, he has received thousands of messages and has sent his own to the 99 percent of people to whom he is unable to respond.
It is absolutely ridiculous, and I’m so, so sorry. I dislike having unread texts since I have OCD.
He recorded his most recent three-minute video while using the restroom.
The man said, “I’m having a f******* number two, I’m in the bathroom, and while to you it might seem terrible, to me I couldn’t give two f****.”
Mr. Kapiris explained to Daily Mail Australia last week how gasoline prices and flooding were impacting inflation.
He asserted, however, that “everyone plays on it too hard and drives prices up.”
According to him, “greedy corporations” won’t lower the markup they charge for all of their produce.
Mr. Kapiris thinks that if shops prioritize their clients, they can still stop costs from skyrocketing.
“When it’s like this, when the economy is s***, you trade your earnings for customers, you get them in the shop, then they’ll buy,” my grandfather John, who immigrated from Greece in 1948, used to advise.
“I’ve been raised to forego revenues in order to draw clients in.”
He reported that in recent months, his gross profits had decreased from 20% to roughly 12%.
However, he thinks that keeping clients loyal is crucial since they will continue to use the business when conditions get better.
‘We strive to be fair, but we have freedom [with prices] since we have hundreds of lines to play with.
“I’m willing to do it if we can lower that cost of living a little bit for our neighborhood and customers.”
