Mum left in stitches at son’s Christening banner as staff take order ‘literally’

A mum was left in hysterical laughter after she ordered a banner for her son's Christening – and the words were taken 'quite literally'.

Denise Smith, 30, informed the printing shop staff of her simple request for the decoration that was for the special occasion.

She told staff: "I just want 'on your Christening day' printed on a banner, please."

However, the sweet gesture for her son Raymond Oliver Maguire's event got a little lost in translation.

Upon opening the package Denise burst into giggles when she noticed the very obvious mistake.

Having taken her request very seriously, the staff printed "I just want On Your Christening Day" on the huge banner – which the three words at the beginning were not intended.

But, things continued to get worse as Denise revealed that the banner was ordered from her brother's shop – who was little Raymond's godfather.

Banner fail aside, the mum was able to see the funny side of the incident.

"When I opened the banner, my brother's wife just shrieked 'oh my God,'

"My brother was so embarrassed – he was meant to be godfather you see.

"I just laughed, gasped and thought 'oh my God'. I just thought it was so funny – how can you mess it up that badly?"

Despite ordering in person, via email and WhatsApp – they still managed to get the banner wrong.

That did not stop Denise using the banner at the Christening in June 2018. She recalled it made the event for now four-year-old Raymond more memorable.

"All of my family and friends were just in stitches – they thought it was so funny", she said.

"Even when I tell people now they don't believe it happened."
