Welsh…or Tourette’s?

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A GREGGS worker has been sus­pended af­ter telling a cus­tomer it sounded like she had Tourette’s when she or­dered a ba­con roll in her na­tive Welsh tongue.

Sioned How­ells, 18, asked for the break­fast snack in Welsh and was stunned when the bak­ery worker failed to fully un­der­stand her or­der.

The staff mem­ber at Greggs in the mar­ket town of Lam­peter, West Wales, then told her: “That was Welsh? Sounded more like you had Tourette’s to me.”

Fu­ri­ous Miss How­ells com­plained about the worker com­par­ing the an­cient Celtic tongue with a speech con­di­tion.

Greggs said that the com­pany was “deeply sorry” for any of­fence caused and said an in­ves­ti­ga­tion will be made.
