Guess what Tesco.com thought would be a suitable substitution for the bottle of Jacob's Creek Chardonnay I ordered last night?

Uni are finished now aren't they?

Who was it last year who got a wooden owl instead of a box of eggs? grin

PuppyMonkey Tue 07-Jul-09 12:27:48

Wait for it......

A loaf of Hovis White Bread.

hmm hmm hmm

White wine... white bread???? Is that the logic do you think????

ruddynorah Tue 07-Jul-09 12:29:25

PMSL - that's so awful it's very funny grin

SammyK Tue 07-Jul-09 12:33:48

grin as it's not my bottle of wine that's been subsituted, would be v.unipmressed to find my wine nowhere to be seen and a loaf of bread in it's place!

FlappyTheBat Tue 07-Jul-09 12:34:17

grin, at least the substitution would have been cheaper. Take it you didn't accept it?

TheArmadillo Tue 07-Jul-09 12:35:25

PMSL

maybe they though you could comfort eat to cheer yourself up about no wine?

Or maybe they thought you ordered too much alcohol and were giving you something to soak it up with?

FabBakerGirlIsBack Tue 07-Jul-09 12:36:47

I would be very tempted to ring and ask them what their logic is for the choice of substitution.

PuppyMonkey Tue 07-Jul-09 12:38:08

Me and the driver had a larf about it. it all got quite religious in the end... talking about turning bread into wine etc etc... grin

I didn't accept it. I also phoned customer services and they were so apologetic, they said they'd waive the delivery charge.

Still got nothing to get pissed on this week though. sad

Curiousmama Tue 07-Jul-09 12:41:03

grin I thought substituting allinson's bread flour for allinson's bread was bad enough (also Tesco) think I'll keep my mouth shut now.

You should tell tesco to deliver the wine bet they will.

FlappyTheBat Tue 07-Jul-09 12:43:04

Obviously, whoever was picking your items forgot to "use their loaf" or were too busy "loafing around" to do their job properly.

<slinks off after making some really bad jokes>

BitOfFun Tue 07-Jul-09 13:02:12

A nice bottle of white wine is the best thing since sliced bread...perhaps that was their logic?

PuppyMonkey Tue 07-Jul-09 13:55:27

I wouldn't mind so much, but I'd already ordered three loaves of Warburtons Toastie white bread. Surely they must have realised I had all the loaves I required for one week! grin

TigersChick Tue 07-Jul-09 14:02:21

grin Rofl!

Saltire Tue 07-Jul-09 14:07:05

Last year they subsituted my haggis with a tin of shortbread,a dn the reasoning behind was "well they are both Scottish"

FlappyTheBat Tue 07-Jul-09 14:17:51

mmmm, lovely -shortbread, neeps and tatties!!!!

modrin Tue 07-Jul-09 14:18:24

rofl @saltire...typical! if that had been round here you would have got a bottle of Buckfast tonic wine which the op could have tried!!!

PuppyMonkey Tue 07-Jul-09 14:58:47

I'd settle for any wine at all round about now. Even Lambrini would've been better then nowt!

CherryChoc Tue 07-Jul-09 15:03:07

I think you can make your own wine with a slice of mouldy bread, perhaps that's what they were hinting at grin

I once ordered 4 pints of full cream milk and 1 pint of semi-skimmed, they substituted the semi-skimmed for 1 pint of full cream hmm - do they not take the rest of the order into account when they substitute things??
