I’ve learned not to send Jim out to shop for anything unless I absolutely positively CAN’T do it myself for some reason. God love him, he will buy everything EXCEPT what I tell him we need.
For instance, he stops by CostCo to pick up some meat. He comes home with an all-in-one printer, an LCD, various food (alas, no meat!!!), … pretty much every damned thing. He almost always picks up things we don’t necessarily need. I’ll send him out for cola, he’ll come home with a waffle iron. (I shit you not!) I would not have been surprised if he picked up something off the wall … like say, financial consolidation software. (Hey, I had a hard time coming up with that one, LOL!)
I swear, it’s like the boy goes into a store and goes “buy happy” — but ribs me about going shopping with Mom or Jessie. At least my shit is useful! ;P
