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 shed done it she said it was so she didnt want to confuse people anymore – and didnt 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 Ive gone to make a cuppa this past two weeks, Ive thought to myself “why the hell has she done this?”.
