3 or 4, or maybe 5 or 6, do you fall for this?

    Amatuers...

    Produce 5 cans when home. When she jumps down your throat for only getting 5 pull your ace up the sleeve - THE 6TH CAN. Look at her long and hard never losing eye contact and say "I run this house & I'll burn this thing down if I feel like it.".

    Then, trundle away.

    Gotta keep em on their toes.

    If you don't wanna be told what to do, pay attention to what's goin on and do the stuff that needs doin before ya hafta be told.

    That's the best damn thing I've learned and it took twenty years to figure it out.

    That is not a trap. That is vague instructions.

    If a woman gives you a choice and you happen to select the option she doesn't prefer (for a myriad of reasons), it is HER fault, not yours. You must tell her this because she needs to hear it for it to register.

    Stick to your guns, my fellow men!

    But do not pull the trigger. That would be murder.

    one is one, two is a couple, now it gets screwy three or four is a few. Five and now it’s new math, Divisible by the minutes hours or days a grudge can be held, directly proportional to The times you just didn’t get it right b4. Solve for (e)X!

    A line from a speech at a wedding from the bride's father that got a laugh. Looking at his new son-in-law, "You can be right or you can be happy............."

    Getting the cans was a directive (i.e. on order).
    Asking you to get 5 or 6 cans makes it sound like a suggestion rather than an order.
    (It makes you think you're an active participant in the decision making process). Hahaha

    Next time .... just go and get the 6 cans as you've been ordered to do.
    Getting just 5 would not be a good idea.

    Women have very many faults,
    Men have only two,
    Everything they say and everything they do.

    Once you accept this is true, life becomes easier to understand.

    I'm gonna try: "I was hoping to go fishing, but since you are asking me this question; that's obviously off the table. What are my orders today boss?"

    Sometimes playing stupid helps...and sometimes I’m not even “playing” stupid...

    I use my “bad memory” and “inherent ignorance” to my advantage, and I make her write me a list with EXACTLY what she wants me to buy.

    If it ain’t on the list, it’s not coming home.

    I do what I am told. I learned a long time ago even if I am right I am wrong. Fine line to walk even if you are sitting.

    She gave you a choice. The decision has been made yours. The ball is now in your court. There is no wrong answer
    For us it’s easy. The dogs get dry food. Nothing from cans. One brand, multiple flavors

    With regard to the original post... In my brief stay here, I've come to the conclusion this is a very strange place. And the frequent posters here are the very strangest.

    When my wife says buy 3 or 4 of something, I always come back with 3. When she complains, I tell her next time, if you want 4, tell me to get 4 or 5.
