Furious partner smashes ‘cheating’ dad’s TV after Funky Pigeon sent wrong card

A dad accused of cheating had his TV, phone, and laptop destroyed by his partner after he received a random Father's Day card.

Funky Pigeon left innocent 52-year-old, Darren Wilson accused of doing the dirty on his partner and fathering a baby, in a hilarious postage blunder.

Dad-of-six Darren had been expecting a card from his daughter Darcy but inside his envelope was one picturing a baby.

To make his partner Kerry even more suspicious was the message "Happy 1st Father's Day Pops!" – which is the nickname his real children call him by.

Kerry was first to open the card and with Darren at work unable to answer her calls for an explanation, she flew into a rage and started smashing up his TV, laptop, and phone.

Operations manager Darren, from Bexleyheath, southeast London, said: "It arrived Monday morning addressed to me.

"I was at work when my partner opened it. She is a bit paranoid as 15 years ago I was a bit of a naughty boy. But I've changed now.

"And there it was. A card with a little boy or a little girl on it, no older than six months with 'Pops' written on it."

The 52-year-old continued: "If it were a generic Father's Day card it wouldn't be so bad but my kids call me Pops.

"It didn't have Mark, Paul, or John written on it but the nickname all my kids call me.

"Needless to say she had gone absolutely ballistic. Of course, it's not her fault she's suspicious because I was a naughty boy 15 years ago.

"To be honest it's quite a sweet card but this has just started the paranoia all over again.

"It's a simple process. It's not rocket science. I've heard of Moonpig but Funky Pigeon means nothing to me. To them, it's a simple mistake but to me, it's life-threatening.

"Because they haven't done their job right it's causing me grief. They said they'll send me the card my daughter was originally going to send for free but what is that in a way of an apology?

"I've lost my laptop, TV, and personal phone because they've sent the card out to Joe Bloggs. They need to be taken to task on this."

Kerry, 44, says she feels "a bit embarrassed" over her reaction, but saw red when the card was addressed to 'Pops' which she thought was too much of a coincidence for her partner to have not been the dad.

"I was just full of anger and tears," she said. "There was a mix of everything going on. I have trust issues anyway as there's been cheating on both sides."

She went on: "I just thought 'Oh God not again' and what with it being a young baby it must have happened recently.

"I'm fiery anyway. I was just chucking anything I could find.

"I went to get his phone to check messages but it was locked with a password so I ended up smashing it. I was calling his work phone but couldn't get through. I was even tempted to go down to the office to confront him but my friend talked me out of it.

"None of this is an excuse anyway. It wasn't until I saw the email from Funky Pigeon that I realised it was a genuine mistake. It was a massive misunderstanding and I'm embarrassed about how I acted.

"We've made up now."

A spokesperson for Funky Pigeon said: "We really appreciate how important Father's Day is for our customers and we do our very best to make things right for our customers.

"We would like to sincerely apologise for this error; it resulted from a human mistake which was immediately rectified. We have contacted our customer to apologise for the inconvenience this has caused and have reissued the card correctly along with a full refund and will also offer a gift from our popular gift selection range."
