Apparently the error was blamed 'on a new member of staff in the marketing department'.

''Bed balloons''. I love that site.

Oh, I see. I don't know the story at all. Can you fill me in?

bristols Thu 31-Jul-08 09:21:00

Was this a mumsnetter?

OrmIrian Thu 31-Jul-08 10:45:58

Yes. I have a feeling that it was.

It wasn't condoms though, it was champagne and strawbs and it was a wind up. Not mentioning any names grin and it wasn't me!

i assumed there was some sort of scam whereby they packed items and then took then out before delivcery

i wasnt charged for them

OrmIrian Thu 31-Jul-08 10:53:29

And I know it was a wind up.

There was a newspaper item about a woman and Tesco's condoms in her basket. Someone posted a thread about it a while back, the woman in the photo looked suspiously like Sue out of Brookie (well she did to me).

I got delivered some condoms once by mistake with my online shop!

That was As-duh tho not Tesco.

When I phoned up to report it (cos I'd hate someone else to get my shopping that I'd paid for, IYSWIM) they said "Oh you should just have kept it!"
