I sent my husband to buy a Tesco leg of lamb but what he came back with cost the 'same as a week's shopping at Aldi'
A WOMAN shared her fury as her husband came back from Tesco with a leg of lamb costing a "ridiculous" price.
The furious wife took to Facebook to explain that she was "absolutely mortified" when her husband Clive came home with a joint that cost £30.86.
The post went viral as fellow Facebook users were amused by the situation and joked that Clive was in trouble after starting "lambgate".
Rozalia Linder, from Ramsbottom, Greater Manchester, said: "I sent Clive to Tesco for a leg of lamb… £30.86p!!!…
"Absolutely Mortified at the price!! He did question the price and accepted the answer and paid….. however, I’m not prepared to pay this!!

Local businesses and residents started chipping in with offers of support for Clive while one prankster set up a GoFundMe page called "CliveAid".
A local pub, The Red Lion at Hawkshaw, said: "You will probably agree that Clive deserves a free Sunday roast, so Clive! bring your receipt for the lamb and we'll give you and your other half a complimentary roast #saveclive ".
One person said: "I bet Clive is feeling a bit sheepish right now…"
Another said: "Ramsbottom was famous for the urn, the steam train, and now Clive".
While a third said: "I think we need to take poor Clive for a Sunday drink as he's no chance of a Sunday roast."
Others were more focused on the price of the leg of lamb.
One person said: "Seriously? You can get nearly a week's shopping in Aldi for that? That's so expensive."
Another chipped in: "Cost of living is rising. It's not poor Clive's fault."
