Contemplating the rain pouring down the windows I mentioned that I'd be soaked before I got half way to the supermarket, so Hubby volunteered to go on his own. This is not something he does as a rule, grocery shopping is one of the things that is usually done whilst he's at work or only under very close supervision.

 

By the time I'd written a detailed list, explained why I wanted that particular brand or size and explained where everything is, I could have been there and back, have everything put away and be sat with my feet up and a nice coffee.

 

When he did eventually return, he had dozens of things I didn't ask for as well apparently assuming that someone who does this twice a week can't possibly know better than he does on such topics as how much milk we get through ...

 

I know he genuinely wanted to help, but if I didn't know him better I'd swear it was a ploy to ensure he's never sent to the supermarket again!

Perhaps he's really saying, in a mans kind of roundabout way, that he'd like you to go with him next time?

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

I've put on my steel helmet and am sat at the bottom of my trench. As a man reading the thread I think it should be called " Damned if you do, damned if you don't" Poor bloke thought he was helping and all he gets is grief! Did this detailed list include the vitals such as biccies, sweets and his favourite magazine etc? Having braved the foul weather I bet he wasn't rewarded with a nice brew and slippers warmed for him. Well you know what to do next time. Plastic rain hood and mac, brolly and waterproof boots.

Before you get even madder I should point out that I do the vast majority of both the shopping and cooking in our home. Please re-direct all mail to Parking Eye.

P.S. Thank God the wife doesn't read this.

I do actually appreciate the thought behind the offer and know him well enough to be sure it was absolutely genuine, tis just me getting a bit frustrated that he thinks he's quicker doing these things for me but actually it takes ten times longer!

And he did have his cuppa and slippers and a nice hot lunch waiting for him when he got back - I also know him well enough to have allowed an extra hour or two so it was still hot! Reason for posting on here is because I wouldn't dream of saying a word of criticism to him and he doesn't read this forum.

For anyone who doesn't know me from other posts - the reason he thinks he's quicker on his own is that he doesn't have to push my wheelchair, which is also the reason I would have got so wet - no matter how much rainproof gear I put on, it does take longer to get anywhere and the water still finds it's way down the back of the chair and under my bum.

HA ha, RMW, I was pushing my mother the other day after I had convinced her to use her wheelchair as she is waiting for a hip replacement.

 

We did the usual weekly shop, and when we got to the till to pay, she was amazed at the price, as when she is on her own it is almost three times as much, so I said that whilst it looked cute, that I was pushing my crippled mother around in a wheelchair, it was actually financial!
