A new mum couldn’t help but laugh after being given a meal in hospital that looked nothing like the picture on the menu.
The woman had just given birth and was looking forward to a delicious dinner after hours without eating, but didn’t quite realize she was expected.
On the menu, a hearty minestrone-style soup with chicken, mushrooms, carrots, herbs, celery and spring onions in a clear broth is advertised in a white bowl.
However, she received a “frozen” yellow stew with a dry bun and soft green beans in a “sad” polystyrene container.
The mum wasn’t too bothered by the presentation and said the soup was “delicious”.
A new mum has been surprised by the ‘sad’ meal she was served in hospital after giving birth. she got a ‘frozen’ yellow stew with a bun and soft green beans
‘Hospital food since I just had my baby But it’s still so delicious!!’ she wrote in a post on the What I Asked For VS What I Got Facebook page.
Many took to the comments to congratulate the mom on her new arrival and laugh at her mealtime confusion.
“They messed you up so much with that ‘soup,'” one woman said.
“Is the soup liquid? He looks frozen LOL’ another laughed.
‘WAIT… Is that really the menu image?!’ asked a third.
Someone jokingly offered their “condolences” while another said that at least the green beans were still green.
“They are really starving us with these portions,” replied one mother.

“I can taste the lack of salt just looking at this photo,” wrote a second.
Many more mums shared their experiences of their first postpartum meal.
“That first meal after giving birth is different. Whatever it is, it tastes like heaven,” one woman said.
‘It is not a lie ! I had cold spaghetti and I swore it was the best spaghetti I’ve had in my entire life,” another replied.
A cruise ship passenger had a similar experience when he ordered a fancy fruit platter to his room for a snack.
The woman thought she was ordering a complimentary platter of several slices of watermelon, oranges, watermelon and pineapple plus grapes and strawberries from room service.
However, what happened to her doorstep was far from what she expected.
A cruise ship guest was stunned when she ordered a fruit plate from room service to receive a ‘sad’ snack of just four small slices of fruit
She got a small plate with a singular slice of pineapple, watermelon, melon, and honeydew melon.
The guest saw the fun side of fruit salad fail and shared images of her “snack” with a popular Facebook group.
“I just boarded a cruise for my birthday and ordered a plate of fruit to send to my room as a little snack. The order photo is so misleading,’ the traveler wrote in a post.
Luckily, she didn’t have to pay for the “unfortunate” snack because the cruise offered free room service at certain times of the day.
Dozens of group members criticized the kitchen staff for sending the small fruit plate and encouraged the guest to complain.
‘They are missing like three fruits! I hope you haven’t paid,” one woman replied.

“I would call them back and say ‘I wish it looked like the picture you advertised with, thank you,'” another recommended.
Others thought it was hilarious and some pointed out that the fruit slices could have been arranged to look like a sailboat.
‘Is there any chance you’re looking at it wrong and it’s supposed to depict a boat sailing into the sunset??? lol,” one member asked.
“The fucking inflation is getting really crazy,” joked a second while a third laughed: “Talk about portion control, sheesh.”
“Looks like whoever brought it ate the little snack while bringing it, sorry girl,” another guessed.
‘Please tell me you’re kidding?!’ someone else said and a second added: ‘It’s so bad it’s comical.’
