Gregory doesn’t usually go to the grocery store on his own, but it’s not because of any HE MAN, MEWOMAN, reason. It’s simply because Gregory is notorious for picking up the wrong thing (even when he has a detailed list and makes one phone call home for each item on the list), or becoming completely confused (like the time he was supposed to grab celery and came home with one leek), or going rogue and ignoring the list altogether. (Does anyone remember the horse meat incident?).
Well a couple of weeks ago Gregory was going to have coffee at a friend’s house, a friend who happens to live right around the corner from a grocery store. I asked Gregory if he wouldn’t mind picking up some cream. Due to Gregory’s grocery store history, and the fact that there are approximately 129387 types of cream in France (that’s me guesstimating), I decided to be super clever and snap a photo of the type of cream I wanted with his phone. This way he would know exactly what I wanted and there wouldn’t be any confusion. (Do you see where this is going?)
This is what I took a photo of.
And this is what he came home with.
If anyone can explain to me how this happened I’ll be your best friend. Over and out.
Definitely going with the selective hearing, plus they don't like following instructions (see directions also). He probably thought he remembered the colours correctly and was very pleased! : DLouisa @ My Family & Abruzzo
Truly hilarious! Yes, b/c he is a man! My husband has the innate problem of NEVER being able to find something in the fridge. “But I don't see it,” he says. Then, I point out that item that was literally right in front of his face in the fridge! 😉 Oh boy!
Sara, this is simple to see .. This man who loves you is, by design, there to gather, hunt, and protect you. We are “built” that way. Gregory would not leave the store without that ever precious label addition – “100% Naturelle” …. Kudos, Greg, for treating your woman in such a respectful manner …. and by the way, Brother .. did you pick up the beer?
Hee hee, close, but no cigar! When I was a kid I wouldn't touch creme fraiche because when we went on holiday we drove past a big creme fraiche factory and it stank, so I didn't want to go near it! Now I happily eat it, but yeah, nothing like cream lol
Too funny! I'm guessing he saw red, white, and blue and reached for red, white, and blue. Stuff like this happens to me all the time because I'm in my head and not paying attention. We have many fewer types of cream here in the US!
I call bullshit. All guys do this so us chicks will get frustrated and do it ourselves… then they get off the hook from having to do it in the future (can you tell I've dealt with the same thing in the past?) Send him back, I say! #shakingmyfistintheair
My husband do the same things, every time he has to go to the grocery store. And it's strange how he is unable to phone me, if he need, insted of buying wrong things!!! Is funny, all men in the world are equal :)Bisous, Babi
