Jeanne Robertson "Don't send a man to the grocery store!"


  1.'s just opposite with me...If the wife volunteers to "get a few things" for me, I have to get pictures of what I want, or she will substitute...
    "well, they didn't have those, so I got these"
    "They were out of that, so I got this"
    "I couldn't find any"
    I have learned my lesson.
    If I want something, I have to get it myself.
    I would have to agree with Jeanne though, most men have no clue because? they don't cook...

    1. I let my wife do the grocery shopping. I used to ask her to pick up stuff for me when she went out, but I broke myself of that habit, as she would continuously "substitute" and wonder why I got frustrated with her choices.

  2. I have been married to my wife for 43 years and learned long ago to let her do the shopping and cooking. She is from a Navy Family and learned from her mother how to be frugal and also how to be a good cook and baker.

    1. Husbands and wives of our age were raised that way. I always thought it was a good way.
