Tesco cash machine offers 'free erections'

29 October 2014

Large businesses and government departments just can't get their heads around the fact that, if you're going to produce something in Welsh, then it might be a good idea to hire a Welsh person to do it for you or you might end up with all manner of nonsense.

We've had roadsigns emblazoned with an out-of-office message and a cycling sign oddly warning of bladder disease (for more, click here, just to see how wrong people get it). Now, we've got a cash machine that offers customers 'free erections' rather than the usual withdrawals. Arf.

The clanger was spotted at a Tesco in Aberystwyth.

Tesco will be sorting this mess out as soon as they can and said: "Thanks to everyone who pointed out the mistake," before muttering under their breath about not being able to catch a bloody break at the minute.

Councillor Ceredig Davies, who saw the sign, said: "There were a few titters in the town so I went down to have a look myself. Ten out of 10 to Tesco for considering the Welsh language... but perhaps they should have had it checked by an actual Welsh speaker before putting the signs on the machines."

"People get their Welsh translations wrong from time to time but this one is hilarious."
