Yahoo News wrote about the story saying, "A man’s grocery “fail” has gone viral after he saw the funny side of it and shared it to social media. James Murden from the UK placed an order online with Tesco, a supermarket chain in the UK, hoping to get a bag of sprouts.
When the delivery arrived, however, it wasn’t quite what he expected. “Please note: when ordering sprouts from @Tesco online, quantity 1 does not mean 1 bag of sprouts. It means 1 sprout,” he wrote on Twitter. “Thank you and good night.”

"He also shared a photo of the lone sprout he received and since it was posted on 23 December, the tweet has over 60,000 likes and over 5000 shares. Tesco did respond to the tweet and explained when ordering individual items online, you have to put in the exact amount. “I do apologise but our loose items are individual items that you can order to get the exact amount,” Tesco said. “Unfortunately, the way our system works, each individual loose item counts towards 1 item on the order."

"The tweet was signed by someone called Lee, who apologised for the inconvenience and also said the issue had been flagged with the IT team in the past. fortunately, Mr Murden seems to have quite the sense of humour. “Haha it’s all good Lee, just need to decide which family member deserves a sprout for Christmas, decisions decisions!” Mr Murden said in response. On Christmas Eve, Mr Murden provided an update to Twitter, explaining there had been a Christmas Eve miracle. “Twitter... it’s a Christmas Eve Miracle: a whole family of sprouts have just arrived, panic over!” he tweeted, along with a photo of him smiling next to the sprouts."

"People also shared similar experiences they had when ordering produce online.
“Earlier this year the 6 bananas I *thought* I ordered turned out to be 6 bunches of bananas,” someone shared on Twitter. “Full credit to the @Tesco delivery driver who kept a straight face when asking whether I meant to order that many as I unpacked all 43 of them.”
Another person said they intended to order on bulb of garlic, but instead received one pound, which resulted in them doing “a lot more cooking” in the weeks after the delivery.
“We were saving you from vampires. Glad we could help,” Tesco responded to the tweet," the article said.
