Ok my sons bday is Tue we are celebrating on Sat, well i told my hubby he needed to buy the stuff to make his cake and to get a few items we still needed. ( drinks and ice cream cups ) .. He comes home from the store with a whole baking system. Omg really? He bought a new glass bowl ( which we have a huge set ) new cake pans ( again a big set ) plastic wear for party i told him i already bought. When i told him ice cream cups, he assumed i meant cups to put ice cream in. Umm no? I meant literally ice cream cups!!!! Ugh. Why? Why does he need to go so overboard?!?!?! Ugh! no one will see the damn pans lol the cake will be on a platform. Lol anyway rant done lol..

If I send mine to the store for one item, he comes back with tons if bags full of junk food. It will have like 10 bags of chips and 6 different kinds of cookies. It is crazy!!! And he usually buys the wrong item that I asked for. Like I will tell him to buy milk, we drink whole milk and have for years, but he will buy non-fat because "he forgot which one we drink".... its been 3 years of the same one!! Lol.

I don't know how to find it but there is a comedy bit about why you should never send a man to the grocery store... it is hilarious and along the same lines as your problem.

Did you smack him with the cake pans? Lol

Seriously, though, why do men do that?! I sent my DH to the store and said "hey, will you grab a thing of Sunny D and a couple boxes of mac and cheese? The girls have some friends coming over, it'll just be easy for lunch". He comes home with a box of Capri suns, 2 bottles of Sunny D and 6 friggin boxes of mac and cheese! I was like "wtf?!" We rarely even eat that stuff!

 I think it's sweet but I guess I'm the only one so far.  If I sent my dh to the store then he would buy what was on my list because he is clueless.  If I sent mine without a list then he probably would have been on the phone annoying me but I would have found it sweet and endearing.
