Note To All The Men Out There

When you say you are going to the store late one night to get a gallon of much needed milk and you ask you beautiful, thin, and loving wife if she wants anything...please for the love of all things that are good in the world, get her what she asks for.  Super hot hubby put the kids to bed and left for the store to get milk, cheese, and ice cream or malt balls.  Now, I requested the ice cream or the malt balls and I told him, quite clearly that he could get both if he was so inclined.  I am sure you see where this is going.  I did NOT say "get a treat", I did NOT say "get something you might find good", I did NOT say "get something from the natural foods isle", I did NOT say "carob will do"...what I did say was malt balls and/or ice cream.  I envisioned crushing up the malt balls and putting them on top of the ice cream.  My mouth was watering just thinking about it.  So, when he got home with yogurt covered pretzels I was NOT happy to say the least.  COME ON...yogurt covered pretzels?  For gods sake, he may have just brought me some tree bark or tofu.

Ok you sound like me once I was craving a Dairy Queen Blizzard, I asked for vanilla with M&Ms on top he came back with chocolate with M&Ms on top. I was furious and didn't eat it, its just not the same!He rolled his eyes and ate it himself LOL!!By the way posted blog about celebrity scraps to honor People Magazine,TMZ and Perez Hilton!

This is precisely why I take my cell phone with me and call her from the grocery before I walk out the door to make sure I have everything she requires ..

That kind of thing sends me into a fit of rage! When you want something specific, nothing else will do! And, yuck, anyways, what was he thinking?

Pam said...

OMGosh! Rock on Ron! I'm sure your wife thanks God everyday for a man like you. My husband doesn't turn his phone on much less take it with him just in case. I think it's a conspiracy.

Alright my friend, I'm so glad I popped back over to read this because I sure needed a laugh!

Thanks for helping me out on this one,
Pam

ps I LOVE malted milk balls, too!

HAHA! It made me want to rip my hair out just READING that! Well, that and go out for some malt balls and ice cream!!! YUMMMM.....now if only I had a husband to order aorund.

BlogBaby said...

Oh SNAP! What is he a glutton for punishment or something??

I'm surprised he still has all his limbs left....seriously?!?! Freakin' Pretzels. Why didn't he just come home with Diet-low-fat-slimfast-I-think-you're-getting-chubby kinda food....PRETZELS that's pretty much the same thing.

LOL! Don't you just love petty female rages?

My husband has started calling me from the store too after many outbursts. If they don't have what I want at the store, I imagine he hates dialing that number to ask me, "What do you want instead?"

Oh Hilarious! Men can be so dense....

OMGosh, we have had this issue more times than I can list-- one was a tostada from Taco Bell. He came home with a burrito and a taco. I was pregnant and had waited for 40 minutes for my tostada to NOT arrive.

My hubby now does what Ron mentioned. He'll call three or four times just to check. At least they're trainable.

Pam said...

Got any malted milk balls yet?

I looked for some when I dashed in and out of the dollar store yesterday to buy valentines for the girls' classes.

Couldn't find any. I was not happy!

Craving malt balls,
Pam

Men. That is about all I can say.

Peaches said...

hahaha!! I swear last weekend we were in a bar and he said, "What do you want?" I said, "Something light, Bud Light, Miller Light."

He brought me an ANCHOR STEAM. WTH?? I have been giving him grief all week.

This story made me smile SO BIG. Every woman has been in your shoes and it is so incredibly frustrating. I bet you didn't even touch those pretzels. Who wants pretzels when they are craving ice cream!? Hmmm... now I am thinking about getting some ice cream.

Men...they never learn, do they? Frankly, you are a saint for letting the guy back into your home. I might have be forced to send him back into the night to correct the error of his ways. :)

I have read your FB message at least a dozen times. Totally makes me happy. We really must get together for Mexican food and drinks. (I don't know why, but I assume that you like Mexican food.)
