There’s a lot to remember…

Most importantly, the turkey.

If the turkey goes wrong, the whole Christmas dinner could be a disaster.

As one woman realized after she bought a twelve-pound Turkey that just wouldn’t cook…

And people are finding the mishap pretty entertaining…

Zoe from Manchester, UK, headed to her local butchers after ordering what she thought was a Turkey for Christmas…

But was sorely disappointed when, even after overcooking the meat, it was “still very, very pink.”

After several hours in the oven and still appearing pink all over, they decided to pass on the pink turkey and not have any meat on Christmas day…

Which was obviously very dispiriting considering it was Christmas.

Zoe decided to send her butcher a message letting him know that she was “disappointed” by the quality of meat.

She wrote: “So we cooked the big 12lb turkey yesterday and when we carved it was still very, very pink inside so we had to put it back in the oven.

“One hour later we got it back out again but still pink my husband carved it and all and put it back in because we thought it would cook quicker like this.

“Eventually, we gave up and had Christmas dinner two hours late with no meat. When I went to the kitchen later I had a nibble on the outside of the now very dried out meat and realized it wasn’t turkey it was gammon.

“Very disappointed I have to say.”

However, the butcher responded informing Zoe that the Christmas hamper she bought didn’t actually come with a Turkey…

He replied: “Hi Zoe we are sorry about that but looking at your previous messages you ordered hamper 6 which was the full gammon joint and didn’t come with a turkey.”

After realizing she had been cooking a ham joint all along, she apologized and asked if they had any Turkeys remaining.

And in the true spirit of Christmas, the Butcher let her have the Turkey for free, for making him laugh…

He said: “We will drop you a boneless turkey breast on Wednesday. The price is nothing as it’s the best laugh I’ve had this year. Hope all the family gets well soon.”

The butcher took to Facebook to post about their exchange, which has now been shared multiple times on the app…

“Looking after our customers. Sorry, Zoe but we thought it was funny,” he wrote.

And it’s left a lot of people in hysterics, calling the mishap “absolutely brilliant.”

Zoe later commented on the post, writing: “I’m so pleased everyone has had such a massive laugh at our stupidity.”
