"Did you buy anymore syrup?"
Why no, dear, I did not because guess what? I don't use the syrup and no one informed me that we were out of it, and the way things work is this, oh males of the house. You want something from the store, you have to COMMUNICATE with the one doing the shopping!!!!
After weeks/months/almost a year of Husband getting peeved about these things, I implemented a new system, installing a dry-erase board on the door of the pantry.
I check this list before I go to get the groceries and if it's not on the list, it doesn't get purchased.
Took him all of two weeks to adapt to this new system, especially when 'essentials' like peanut butter and mayonnaise were omitted from the list... because I don't eat them!
