A shopper from Rochester in Kent has shared her surprise at receiving a bunch of spring onions from a supermarket instead of the bouquet of Spring flowers she had ordered online.
The supermarket sent her a letter explaining the odd substitution, by saying it had no bunches of the Spring flowers left.
Suzanne Bradish sent a message on social media telling her followers and friends about the mixup. Since then her tweet has gone viral with more more than 3,000 other people forwarding the story on.
Since then, the jokes have come pouring in, along with other people sharing their own substitution stories. Suzanne showed she has a sense of humour too, by picturing the onions in a vase of water.
To their credit Sainsbury's did apologise, and sent Suzanne a bunch of flowers and a voucher for her trouble.
