If you’re in a long-term relationship, at some point you’ve probably felt like your partner wasn’t pulling their weight around the house. And when that happens, you could sit down and have a responsible, productive conversation about the issue and household expectations, or you could do what this woman did and get even.
Mom of two Karen Alpert shared her recent experience with this situation on her Facebook page Baby Sideburns. “My hubby has been lying on the couch all morning while I’m doing sooo much stuff, so I finally got super annoyed and sent him to the grocery store,” she writes. And that sounds pretty harmless, right? But here’s the thing - she sent him with a “special shopping list” that included some items that are pretty much impossible to find … because they don’t exist!
Here’s what this fed-up wife asked for:
- 3% milk
- Seedless strawberries
- Wheat Thins - “the ones in the BLUE box”
- Unsour cream
- Diet Diet Coke - “You might have to ask for it because it’s new”
- Mellow cheese
- Organic Pop-Tarts
Savvy shoppers know Wheat Thins only come in yellow boxes, there is no 3% milk and organic Pop-Tarts are a joke. And if you’re thinking that this hubby would have called his wife for guidance when he was running around the supermarket searching for these items, here’s the best part – she turned her ringer off!
