One woman’s attempt to give a supermarket specific instructions for her sandwiches order backfired, but she was left in stitches by the mistake, as many joked it was deliberate
When you don’t have enough time on your hands, supermarket catering can be a godsend.
If you’re hosting a big group of people, it can be much easier to rely on professionals to sort you out.
But one woman’s attempt to order a range of sandwiches from a supermarket backfired recently, leaving people in stitches.
Something clearly got lost in translation during the order, as when the sandwiches arrived it became apparent there was a big mistake.
Tiktok user Ashlin @ashlinm92 left people in hysterics after revealing what she’d ordered, and what she’d received.
She had asked for half of the sandwiches to be made with wholemeal bread, while the rest were made with white bread.

Instead, the employee made each sandwich with one slice of white bread and another wholemeal, leaving her in hysterics.
Ashlin shared the video on TikTok where it racked up more than one million views and thousands of comments.
One viewer joked: “I wouldn’t even be upset. I’d be more confused as to how whoever made this tray came to this conclusion when they read ‘half white, half wheat.’.
Another joked: “Whoever made it was probably like ‘weird request but okay,” alongside a laughing crying emoji.
“We asked for an assortment of turkey, ham and roast beef sandwiches. They took that as put all of them on the same sandwich,” added a third.
“It’s malicious in its compliance,” joked another. “You got exactly what you asked for. The only option is to separate every sandwich and work some magic.”
