Grandma Left In Hysterics After She Accidentally Bought Multipack Of Condoms Instead Of Teabags

Rosemarie just wanted her multipack of Tetley, but came back with something very different indeed.

An elderly woman was left mortified after she accidentally bought a multipack of condoms, thinking they were tea bags.

Rosemarie Riley, 76, popped out to the shops to stock up on tea during the aftermath of Storm Ciara, but after forgetting her specs, she ended up purchasing a 30-pack of Durex Thin Feel by mistake.

Rosemarie initially thought she was picking up a jumbo pack of Tetley, but what she *did* purchase was something quite different.

The gran-of-eight from Skelmersdale, only realised her mistake when husband John Riley, 78 noticed the item on the receipt. Rosemarie was utterly horrified and begged her granddaughter, Gemma Riley, to return the condoms for her.

Gemma, 29, said she was howling with laughter and took to Facebook to share the blunder.

"Sooo nan's gone and brought these from Asda thinking they were teabags - and her wonderful granddaughter has the job of returning them," she wrote.

"So please, if anyone sees me returning these, don't judge. I know Valentine's is around the corner but I have no use for them and they cost her £17. All she wants is her Yorkshire teabags.

"Happy Tuesday. She will be wearing her glasses next time she goes shopping as we are worried what she might come back with next time."

Mum-of-one Gemma went to the shop that evening with the condoms tucked in her bag out of sight before explaining to the customer service assistant - who was also in hysterics - what had happened.

"I said 'she's picked these up instead of the teabags, is there any chance I can get the teabags and return these?'" Explained Gemma.

"The lady was laughing her head off. I was too and then I ran out there as quickly as I could.

"Everybody knows me around here and I didn't want to be seen returning them, especially before Valentine's Day.

"I said to my nan 'I thought you were in for a good time'."

Rosemarie explained husband John usually does the shopping, adding that he was mortified she'd spent £17 on the condoms.

"I just threw everything onto the conveyor belt and shoved them in the bag, I didn't think," she said.

"I suppose the lady should have said 'have you made a mistake?' She must have thought I was a bit raunchy.

"My husband normally does all the shopping but he's not very well.

"I don't care, I just grab whatever's there, I'm a terrible shopper."

Rosemarie, never change!
