Mum put tea and coffee into wrong jars so this is how she fixed the problem 82452810

We all have our senior moments sometimes, but few are quite as amusing as this one.

Rich Harris, 42, discovered his mum Jackie, 69, had accidentally mixed up the tea and coffee jars, but instead of swapping the contents, she relabelled the jars.

She scribbled out the ‘tea’ label and used thick black pen to daub ‘coffee’ on it – and did the same for the nearby coffee container.

Baffled, Rich asked his mum why she’d done it she said it was so she didn’t want to ‘confuse people anymore’ – and didn’t think to empty and refill them correctly.

Jackie, who Rich described as a ‘simple woman with a heart of gold and the mind of a goldfish’, said she underlined the new ‘tea’ label because she drinks more tea than coffee.

Rich said: ‘Every time I’ve gone to make a cuppa this past two weeks, I’ve thought to myself “why the hell has she done this?”.’

Rich moved in with his retired parents in Clacton-on-Sea last August, but noticed the weird switch just two weeks ago.

Rich said that Jackie filled the jars wrong one day and didn’t think to empty them and refill correctly, so decided to relabel the jars with a permanent marker pen.

Bless her....she had a blonde moment, I'm sure we all have them, I know I do.
Sometimes the obvious solution to a problem simply evades us. Basketball
