Suzanne ordered the Sainsbury’s Spring Show bouquet looking forward to getting a gorgeous bouquet. However, Sainsbury reserves the right to substitute items when the need arises. Unfortunately, their flower arrangers weren’t paying much attention when they substituted a bunch of spring onions instead of flowers. When the mistake was brought to their attention they decided to make it up to her with a bit of humor. Their customer service rep said: “Lettuce apologize for our eye-watering mistake. We’re springing into action and have already spoken to the customer who really knows her onions. We feel like a right bunch of daffs.” After Sainsbury’s sent her a replacement bouquet Suzanne posted on Twitter: “Aww. You shouldn’t have @ sainsburys!”

Alas, this description is actually accurate.
