Mum gives “lazy” husband a FAKE shopping list to get revenge


Content Editor / April 01 2019

A disgruntled mum who was fed up doing all the housework while her husband lounged around the house found a unique way to get him back.

Karen Alpert, who blogs at Baby Sideburns, created an hilarious “fake” shopping list of impossible-to-find items on it, then sent him out to the shops.

“OMG my hubby has been lying on the couch all morning while I’m doing soooo much stuff so I finally got super annoyed and sent him to the grocery store... with a special shopping list. And yes, I turned my ringer off,” she shared on her Facebook page.

The items included organic Pop Tarts, diet diet Coke, unsour cream and fat-free hummus.

The post garnered over 19K comments with Mums chiming in to say how much they loved the idea.

“Omg this is priceless I love it. If I did that my husband’s head would explode hahaha,” wrote one.

“When my uncle was a single dad his daughter was sick and we told him he needed to give her “flat ginger ale” ... after an hour at the store - he called my mom saying he couldn’t find “flat ginger ale... only the normal one!” shared one mum.

“I would love to see what he came home with!” wrote another. Wouldn’t we all!
