Argos shoppers left in stitches by five star review for blackout curtains

An Argos customer who left a glowing endorsement for a pair of blackout curtains in the reviews section has left people laughing with their very honest assesment

The curtains sound like a bargain at £15

One of the great benefits of online shopping is being able to see the judgements of customers who took the plunge before you to ensure you make the right decision.

Their experience with the item can make or break whether you commit to the purchase, but a five star review left on a pair of Argos blackout curtains revealed a little more than some shoppers were expecting.

On sale for £15, the description reads : “Need a nice dark room to get a good night’s sleep? Yep, so do we. That’s why we love this pair of blackout curtains. They’re fully lined to keep light out, making sure you get a decent rest all year round.”

They are rated four stars out of five from more than 1,400 reviews, which range from one shopper branding them “brilliant curtains” to the inevitable one star review which states another customer was so unhappy they returned them “within an hour”.

It’s quite the endorsement

But one review, left by a shopper who goes by the name of ‘Justbeinghonest’, has left people in stitches as they awarded the purchase top marks.

It reads: “These blackout curtains are great, especially when you wake up next to someone you wish you hadn’t, you can’t see anything”, before adding the details that they are aged between 55 and 64, and live in Margate.

A screenshot of the work of art was posted on Reddit with the caption: “Wasn’t expecting to read this in the curtain reviews …”

One person replied to say: “The age makes it” and a second added: “Not to pre-judge but I firmly believe that due to the age, the ‘someone’ they wish they hadn’t woken up next to is their husband/wife.”

And another added: “I can never work out if Argos reviews are all satire or if the people who write Argos reviews are genuinely like that.”

It’s not the first time Argos curtains have drawn attention either, after the retailer was mocked by shoppers for selling discounted curtains that resemble giant floor-to-ceiling cigarettes. You can see them here.
