or most of us, grocery shopping is a mundane task. Wading through fully stocked isles, remembering to bag the ground beef, and standing in line to checkout all lack an appeal to the more exciting side of life. But it has to be done, and if you're the one who does the majority of the shopping, you probably have it down to a science.
On the off chance you have to send a spouse or a friend, things can get tricky though. Will they buy the right toilet paper? Do they know the type of off-brand graham crackers you like?
In a grocery list that's now gone viral, one woman made sure that when she sent her husband to the store, he sure as heck was coming back with exactly what she asked for.
No one likes receiving the unpleasant surprise of not getting anything they asked for.
Nothing’s more irritating than looking forward to the exact type of ground coffee you rejuvenate yourself with every morning, only to realize your spouse just walked into the house with something unrecognizable. Trying to be laid back is good in theory, but when it comes to that specific item you needed, it’s back to the drawing board.
We can't be sure, but it seems like the author may have been burned before.
We’ve all been in that frustrating, why-didn’t-I-just-go-myself zone, and it’s excruciating. Judging by the specifics of the viral list, we think there’s a good chance Twitter user, Era Londe, had received an incorrect item in the past. Most of us would simply buckle down and drag ourselves back to the store, but she had better plans.
This woman meant business.
Obviously loving, yet very specific, Londhe sat down to pen one of the most thorough grocery lists we’ve seen… literally ever.
No detail was spared, leaving the recipient almost no room for excuse, if he brought back the wrong item. And we mean no excuse.
Her husband possessed the grocery list to beat all other grocery lists.
Some people think it’s cute to pop everything in a text and throw in a heart emoji as an afterthought. Instead, Londe’s husband held the the world’s most comprehensive way to shop for vegetables. Unlike many other husbands, he couldn’t throw out the pretense of not knowing quite what a ripe onion looked like.
The internet quickly recognized the author's genius.
With word of the list rapidly spreading through social media, the contents of the note were quickly lauded as, not only admirable, but, perhaps, imbued with a smidgen of professionalism. It was obvious that Londhe knew her stuff. Twitter user, @MohitRajabhoj, put it the best.
But that wasn’t all…
