Tesco apologises over grammar mistakes

Supermarket chain Tesco has promised to brush up on its spelling and grammar after making two separate mistakes in a single pack of baby clothes.

The parents of three-month-old Alexander Kendall spotted the errors after being given the set of five Tesco F&F long sleeve bodysuits as a present.

One of the suits carries the slogan “I was born awsome” - missing out the first E in ‘awesome’.

Another misses a possessive apostrophe and reads “Daddys little man”.

Tesco responded after Alexander’s father pointed out the errors on Twitter.

It offered a refund or exchange and said: “Sorry about this, we’ve made our suppliers aware of this so it can be corrected for future stock.”

Mother Sophie Kendall, 28, from Norwich, said: “We both work as journalists so are perhaps a bit more pedantic about these things than most.

“Fortunately Alex is a long way off being able to read so we’ll just use the suits and hope nobody notices.”
