A woman sent her husband on shopping after he refused to help out around the house.
The blogger known as Baby Sideburns shared the list on her Facebook page and said she made it get revenge on her husband after he spent the morning idly lying about the house.
The items which she listed were, three per cent milk, seedless strawberries, fat-free hummus, wheat thins (the ones in the blue box), un-sour cream, diet coke (you might ask because it’s new), mellow cheese and organic Pop Tarts.
Captioning the photo of the list she wrote: “OMG my hubby has been lying on the couch all morning while I’m doing sooooo much stuff so I finally got super annoyed and sent him to the grocery store… with a special shopping list. And yes I turned my ringer off.”
The post went viral and gained more than 64,000 reactions, 55,000 shares and 18,000 comments.
Many comments were by other wives who said their husbands would also be duped by the prank.
One person said: “Showed my hubby the list…
“Hubby: ‘oh so he can take a minute?’
“I’m like ‘no babe, these things are made up.’
“Hubby: ‘I could’ve sworn, I’ve seen organic pop tarts & 3% milk’
Another person added: “I sent my man to the store for black pepper and he text saying ‘I only see red green and yellow peppers. No black.’
A third said: “This is awesome! But to my husband, even a regular list would pose the same challenges.”
But others thought the joke may backfire on Karen.
One person said: “Jokes on her. All he read was: Milk, Strawberries, Hummus, Snack chips, Coke, Pop-tarts.
“He’ll be home in 25 mins and twenty of that is driving.”
Well, it is still unclear how Karen’s husband got on with his shop though. Rumor is that he is still in search of un-sour cream.
