Tesco bakery sign leaves shoppers laughing as they spot awkward spelling error

A handmade Tesco sign went viral thanks to an awkward spelling mistake that completely changed the message.

The notice alerted customers about the lack of baked goods due to a shortage of staff.

In the last year or so, us Brits have battled toilet roll and petrol shortages – with companies having to say sorry in the most British way.

With the classic line usually reading: “Apologies for any inconvenience".

But Tesco employees accidentally mixed up the words "inconvenience" and "incontinence", much to customers' amusement.

The writer of the sign wrote: “Sorry, no bakery due to staff shortage. Apology for any incontinence.”

The A4 sign hung on the shelf – attached with some yellow and white tape amongst the empty trays.

According to the NHS website, incontinence is defined as the "unintentional passing of urine" with it being a "common problem thought to affect millions of people".

An eagle-eyed supermarket shopper spotted the mistake and posted the sign gaffe to Reddit.

They titled the post: “The floors were a bit sticky to be honest.”

Tickled by the spelling error, people fled to the comments to jump in on the supermarket mishap.

One person joked: “Tesco really are taking the p***.”

Another user added: “Only a single apology as well."

A third noted: “God I hope that was intentional.”

Someone else stated: “Tesco bakery is wild.”

Daily Star have approached Tesco for comment.
