Gemma posted the innocent mistake on Facebook, and the post has gone viral. Here’s the post:
She wrote, ”Soooo nans gone and brought these from Asda thinking they were teabags .And her wonderful granddaughter has the job of returning them, so pleaseee if anyone see’s 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 alls she wants is her Yorkshire teabags. On another note my day has just got alot more embarrassing but god dam hilarious at the same time 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.”
Gemma , later went the store to return the condoms and explained what had happened to the store owners.
