Who says that the world is short of shockers and surprises? One customer at Asda was taken aback when she was charged more than £900 for a single banana she ordered online.
Bobbie Gordon from Nottingham was surprised to find that she had been charged an astounding amount of £930.11 for a single piece of fruit.
She initially thought that the supermarket had made some typing error.
The actual price of the banana should have been 11p.
The woman’s credit card firm’s fraud team blocked the payment and texted her informing about the bill, which amounted to more than £1,000.
Ms Gordon informed to BBC that the supermarket has apologised for the computer-generated error.
She further said that jokingly that upon seeing the bill I asked my seven-year-old boy to really enjoy the banana and he must enjoy every mouthful of it.
She even posted a picture of the expensive yellow fruit on Twitter, besides the caption saying that she has been charged £930.11 for one banana ordered online.
@AsdaServiceTeam @BBCNottingham My online delivery arrived. I’ve been charged £930.11 for 1 banana? I am going to be pretty livid if my card has been charged over £1k that my delivery note states!?! #asda #wtf #nottingham pic.twitter.com/czeUOxAUpR

Asda apologized after the banana drama saying that it just “slipped up” with the bill.
As per one spokeswoman of Asda, the bananas sold at Asda are awesome, even we know that they are not worth that much and there had been a clear malfunction in our computer system.
Asda further mentioned that they are thankful to Ms Gordon for indicating the error so that they could thoroughly investigate it and make sure that such occurrences do not happen again.
