Mum ‘tipped over edge’ when she sees supermarket delivery’s wine substitution

After a long, busy day an exhausted mum reached for a bottle of wine only to notice it had been substituted by her supermarket for one with a lower alcohol content.

The mum explained that in the midst of moving house, home-schooling her children and working from home as a result of coronavirus, she was stressed to say the least.

So, like just like many of us, she had been treating herself to a couple of glasses of wine in the evening to unwind.

But after her food shop was delivered, and she went to enjoy a glass of wine, she realised that the supermarket had swapped her alcohol of choice for one with a lower alcohol content, and admitted it ‘tipped her over the edge.’

She took to Mumsnet to explain: “So in the process of trying to move. It’s taken us two years to get to this point and the past couple of weeks have been a nightmare!

“Lots of stopping and starting. Lots of “we can exchange….no we can’t” Just generally a stressful mess.

“That, on top of everything else – home schooling a very hormonal DD [darling daughter], DP [dear partner] WFH [working from home] and getting under each others feet driving each other insane, has lead to a much needed glass or two of wine, most evenings.

“Anyway, shopping is delivered and I think my day is looking up, as the driver proudly announces only one substitute! Instead of the usual 20 something.

“It’s one Sauvignon for another. No problem.

“Or so I thought. Now this has tipped me over the edge! Absolutely unacceptable.”

She shared a picture of the wine in question and made sure to highlight the part of the description which said the Sauvignon Blanc had a lower alcohol content.

And fellow mums were quick to sympathise with her situation, with one suggesting an alternative drink – vodka.

One joked: “Despicable. Send a strongly worded email to head office immediately…”
