It’s Blue Monday, but at least you didn’t find a plastic glove in your Greggs

Posted at 1:30 pm, January 19, 2015 in Food & Drink

Today is Blue Monday, the saddest day of the year (according to people who try to sell us things). Apparently, today we’re all at our fattest, poorest, most tired and most angsty. Life is shit. Wahh, wahhh, waaaaaah. (Maybe it’s time to listen to the 50 saddest songs of all time?)

TBH, unless you’re the three-year-old kid who found a rubber glove in her Greggs, we don’t feel sorry for you. Amber Hodson was enjoying the warming lushness of a £1.20 cheese and onion pasty at the bakery’s Forest Hill outlet when the unthinkable happened.

She bit into the snack, expecting flaky pastry and gooey beige filling and instead found a bright blue plastic glove.

A spokesperson for Greggs said: ‘We’re really sorry to hear of this complaint and will investigate every possibility. We have rigorous quality control checks in place before sending our products out to our shops and will be looking at how this could have happened.’

Be careful when you’re comfort eating at lunchtime.

Maybe head to one of these joints for dinner.
