Fed-Up Mum Gets Revenge On 'Lazy' Husband By Sending Him Shopping With Fake List
Karen Alpert was going about the chores last weekend when she noticed something extremely annoying.
It was the sight of her husband lolling around on the couch while she beavered away doing the housework .
So she gave him a job to do - go to their grocery shop with a list of things to get for the house.
Except, this was no ordinary list. It was a revenge list of fake, non-existent items.
The mum blogger, who writes under the name Baby Sideburns , put the list together, sent him on his way then turned her phone on to silent.
"And yes I turned my ringer off."
So which items was Karen's husband trawling the aisles for in vain?
"3 per cent milk, seedless strawberries, fat-free hummus, wheat thins (the ones in the blue box) unsour cream, diet diet coke (you might ask because it’s new), mellow cheese, organic Pop Tarts."
Other mums were quick to share in Karen's glee, and share their experiences.
"The thing is, my husband calls me no matter what I send him for, every time. Part of what makes this funny!" one wrote.
"Ok. I wouldn't be that mean but it would be so funny!!" another added.
As for what Karen's husband actually came back with, we'd love to find out.
