Okay married couples, what usually happens when you decide to paint a room? You both look at paint chips, tape them to the wall, discuss at length, and then one or both of you shows up at the paint store and purchases a mutually agreed-upon color. Right? I mean, that's how I always did it. But maybe there are some rogue husbands out there making unilateral paint color purchases. (HOWCOULDYOU?!?) Because someone found this hilarious sign at a hardware store reading: "Husbands MUST have a note from their wives before selecting colors."
Really, hardware store? This is the kind of world we live in, now?
Couples counseling at Home Depot! You have to wonder what those wives'
notes are going to look like. And for that matter, you have to wonder if other stores ought to require notes from spouses before a purchase. I'm sure that wouldn't lead to any charges of sexism at all ...
