My Blue Ribbon Hubby

  
Hubby gets a blue ribbon (and a lotto ticket, but that's besides the point ;) ).  We went out to eat one night this week, and on the way home stopped at a store to get an air gauge for my car.  I was going to run in but hubby said, "I'll do it, it won't even take me five minutes."  Never one to shirk a bet with my husband, I jumped all over it.  "Lotto ticket?"  I asked coyly.  He smirked and nodded his head.  I told him to wait until the clock turned to the next number.  He said he didn't need the extra half a minute.  -_-


The store we were at was huge, and the tire gauges are way in the back. I knew I had the bet won before he even left the car.

Two and a half minutes later he emerged with a smile.
I locked the door so he couldn't get in (that was my favorite part :) ).

On the way home he said, "I'll take a Quick Pick (lotto)."

LOL

A big shout out & props to hubby, a man who shops faster than should be humanly possible (yet another glaring difference between the genders brought to light). ;)

  1. Now that's impressive! When I send my husband out to do any kind of shopping, he takes FOREVER. And then complains about it for a month. Sigh.

    1. lol, you made me laugh. :)

      Maybe he does it on purpose so he doesn't have to do it. My husband's like that with painting... they're pretty smart you know... ;)

    1. Ah well, now I have a good excuse to send him in when it's cold out (and we just need an item or two). I'll just say, 'but you're so much faster than I am, honey,'). he he he

  4. LOL. I was teasing my husband because we were in a store one day and I watched another significant other walk into the store and do the exact same thing my husband does- put his hands in his pockets and drop his head down. Oh well, he still gets a blue ribbon for shopping with me. :)

      We do okay shopping together. He goes a little slower and I go a little faster. :)

  6. I have also found that my version of 5 minutes is completely off from my husbands version. I don't know how they breeze through their shopping so quickly. They all must have been trained by the people who used to run that game show Super Market Sweep lol.

    1. He totally wanted to be on that show. LOL

      I like to take my time and look at things! I guess that's why he never goes over budget, and I usually do.

  7. OK, so he knows that store, but can he be just as fast at the grocery store?;)

    1. Don't give him any ideas. ;)

  9. Oh nonono, this will never happen here! In this house I'm the 'in and out' store person and the Great Scot is the one who takes forever and picks up a half-dozen 'bargains' on the way.

  10. most times my hubby can be in/out A LOT faster then me. BUT every once in a while he goes out for snacks---that could be a three hour tour... =^D

    1. Ohh, me too, especially during the holidays when there's so many different types of seasonal treats to make a choice from!

  11. Oh I REALLY wish my hubby were a fast shopper. He would compare EVERY tire gauge to every other one and then ask them to go in the back to see if they have MORE..... then walk away...then come back and do it all over again. I'd say your hubby deserves a blue ribbon and MORE.

    1. LOL. Thorough can be good. You'd probably end up w/THE best tire gauge ever made. :)

  12. LOL too funny!

    My husband is a fast shopper because he forgets half of what he meant to get.

  13. That IS impressive! My husband takes forever and a day to shop...mostly because he stops to talk to everyone in the store (the man has never met a stranger!).

    1. My father-in-law is like that too. I think that's a fun characteristic to have in your makeup. :)

  14. hahaha, My husband takes for ever and spends twice as much as I would have so yay your husband does deserve his ribbon and quick pick :)

    1. I'm seeing a trend here of couples shopping in opposite manners, regardless of who is the faster one. :)

  15. I think I shop like your hubby, seriously! I'm in and out in 5 minutes. I hate hanging out at the mall.

  18. My husband likes to get in and out of the store as quickly as possible too :) He hates it when the check-out lines are long and make his trip not quick!

  19. My husband is pretty good about running to the grocery store for me. He isn't good about other errands though. He hates when I hand him coupons. I don't know why. They are already cut out. All he needs to do is use them. He sort of rolls his eyes at me. If only he knew how much money I've saved.

  20. My hubby is the opposite! He takes forever to shop!

    It's always a delight to read your posts! So glad we connected!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hahahahahaha! That's so funny.

    My hubby would be the same way - in and out as fast as humanly possible. He hates shopping, so he likes to get it done fast, especially when there's a bet at stake. He's very competative.

  22. My husband takes FOREVER in the store. I kid him that he must be memorizing the labels!

  23. How in the world is that even possible? Too funny!
