Teacher orders seven calculators from Morrisons but gets baked pasta
A math teacher was baffled after ordering seven calculators with his Morrisons online store, only to receive the same amount of chicken and pasta.
Alison Jagger, 28, from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, added the devices for her high school students as part of her online food order from Morrisons.
But she was left completely confused when her groceries arrived and she realized that her desired item had been replaced with seven ready meals.
Share the hilarious mishap with Twitter, she wrote: “When you order 7 calculators from Morrisons and they send you 7 chicken and bacon pastries instead as a replacement?”

Morrisons was quick to respond to her post, writing, “Uh, wow. I don’t know how it happened Mrs. Jagger.
“Can you send us a DM with your order number, email address, zip code and contact number along with a copy of your tweet so we can try to figure out what happened here? . “
Alison told the Mirror she was buying calculators because there was a shortage in 7-9 years at the school where she teaches, after older students were given individual calculators due to Covid-19 so they didn’t have to share.
The math professor said she saw calculators offered for £ 2.50 on Morrisons, via Amazon Prime, and decided to order as many as she could when she saw the “really good” deal.
She joked: ‘Now I have to find scientific calculators as interesting as these.
“I don’t think the pasta will be very good for calculating angles in pie charts with grade 9 on Wednesday!”

Morrisons was quick to respond to her message, and Alison later confirmed she had received a full refund for the calculators while Morrisons also let her keep the pasta in the oven.
Speaking to Twitter, Alison claimed her husband tried to explain to the delivery driver that they had “ordered calculators” but were told to “contact customer service.”
But Alison confirmed that she had since received a full refund for the calculators while Morrisons had also let her keep the pasta.
A spokesperson for Morrisons said: “Unfortunately this incident was due to a technical error which has since been resolved. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to Alison and have fully refunded her.”
Twitter users were left out by the unusual substitution, with people joking that the packer had to be one of his students hoping for a tasty snack instead of a calculator.
While other people shared their own surrogate stories at the supermarket, one person hilariously admitted they got a Twix bar from it instead of tampons.
One person wrote: “I have already checked their list of potential replacements and this is the strangest thing.
“Like ‘if we don’t have your sautéed veg, here’s a packet of salt and vinegar crisps’ or’ no toilet paper? How about a birthday card? “”
Twitter users were embarrassed by the unusual substitution, with people joking that the packer had to be one of his students hoping for a tasty snack instead of a calculator.
Another said: “Many moons ago we ordered very small diapers for our then newborn daughter.
“Another well-known supermarket has replaced diapers for babies 9 to 12 months old. We just kept them for about a year …. ‘
While a third commented: “I ordered 1 tube of toothpaste suitable for a 10 year old and received 2 for a 5 year old.
“Also know someone who ordered Tampax who received twix! Having 2 identical letters doesn’t really help. ‘
And a fourth joked, “Use a quill and paper.”
After someone said it had to be a ‘joke,’ Alison hilariously replied, “It’s real. I took my husband and I by surprise.
“I think my students will be more surprised on Monday when they ask for a calculator and I throw pasta at them.”
