A woman was left red-faced after thinking her builder was bringing a dog with him – after she misread a text.

She admitted she ‘needed to go to Specsavers’ after mistaking the word ‘labourer’ for ‘labrador’.

The woman managed to see the funny side and shared the conversation to Facebook group DIY On A Budget UK, where the hilarious exchange has racked up more than 4,000 likes.

Posting the screengrab, she said: “So this is a conversation I had with a joiner this week.

“I have to add, the work was outside, but I still went out whilst it was done.”

The texts between her and the builder start off fairly normally, with the woman asking what time he will be over, to which he replies around 7.30 or 8am.

He replies: “Cool see you tomorrow I will have a labourer with me is that ok.”

But she mistakenly thinks he’s bringing a dog – so responds with info about her cats.

She says: “Yes that’s fine. I’ve got 2 cats, but they will probably do one when they see your dog – which is fine. Thanks.”

Immediately clocking what’s happened, the bloke responds: “Ha ha ha not a labrador a labourer an apprentice someone that helps me.”

More than 4,000 people liked her post with some saying they were reduced to tears
