Sorry for the “incontinence” sign gives shoppers a giggle

It’s not just any fail – Marks & Spencer gave shoppers a giggle with this sign apologising for limited tea and coffee in a cafe – causing INCONTINENCE.

The notice appeared around one of the High Street giant’s big home stores in Cheltenham, Glos,

It read: “Due to a technical fault, we are only able to offer filter coffee and tea. Sorry for incontinence.”

Customer Louise Deleon, 36, was among those who chuckled at the unfortunate confusion for the word inconvenience.

She alerted staff but they were already in the process of removing the computer printed signs from elsewhere around the store.

She said: “My dad went to tell the staff. He couldn’t believe it.

“He was laughing away and so were the staff.

“As he was telling them another member of staff walked up with the sign in her hand – from elsewhere – saying ‘have you seen this?’

“They were amused too.”
