Every little helps! Tesco delivery driver leaves customer a message and then absent mindedly signs off with ‘Bye, love you, love you’
- Leanne Thomas, 33, received message from the driver, known only as Simon
- He’d rung to tell her his delivery would be arriving early when he made the gaffe
- Ms Thomas, from Carmarthen, South Wales, said Simon – who she reckons is about 45 – was red-faced when he turned up with her groceries shortly afterwards
A Tesco delivery man has gone viral after he blurted out ‘I love you’ in a phone message to a female customer.
The warm-hearted driver – known only as Simon – was calling the woman to tell her his delivery would be arriving early.
But Leanne Thomas, 33, was amazed to hear Simon’s professional spiel abruptly end with an amorous declaration, followed by an embarrassed chuckle and apology.
Ms Thomas, from Carmarthen, South Wales, said Simon – who she reckons is about 45 – was red-faced when he turned up with her groceries shortly afterwards but they had a good laugh about his emotional incontinence.

She posted the recording on social media the following day and told Tesco: ‘Please please please give my delivery driver an extra day off… he made my day yesterday!’
Simon’s voice message starts off professionally saying: ‘It’s Simon here from Tesco.
‘I’m just running early – I can be with you in about five minutes. I hope to see you there.’
Unfortunately for Simon, he appears to have suffered a brain melt and confused Ms Thomas with his other half.

Ms Thomas today said Simon the delivery driver felt a little embarrassed when he arrived.
