Today, it's my birthday. I worked late, so I was looking forward to spending a quiet evening with my husband. When he suggested we go grocery shopping, I got excited thinking he had organized a surprise party or something. He actually just took me grocery shopping. FML

Appreciate the little things in life.

Us guys don't play with words... When we say let's go grocery shopping, we mean grocery shopping... There is no other meaning... Unless it's sex related... Then we play with all kind of words :-)

There's always next year....

If you were looking forward to spending a quiet evening alone, it surprises me you were so excited then for a big surprise party.

I think this was him making up for that thing guys like to do, "never taking girls shopping". Get your payback OP by taking him with you to Forever 21.

At least he took you out.

Best comment ever. I'm stunned.

Well grocery stores usually aren't loud. So I guess she got what she was looking forward to... Kinda

Did you buy some things to cook a nice meal together?

Hey, grocery shopping can be fun!

You don't get out much, do you?

She does to go grocery shopping apparently.

I'm with 5,grocery shopping with my girlfriend is fun, maybe in a few years when it's just a routine task that we have to do, but it is time with her

You can pick up some sweet bargains. Gotta love going to Sainsburys to buy cider only to come home with some kick-ass lego sets that were half price.

Home dinners are always the best. Unless both of you can't cook.

Did he remember?

Its an FML due to your own expectations so you can't really complain here...

Well at least you got to spend it with your husband. It's not always what you do but who you spend the day with.

If you wanted to do something for your birthday, then why didn't you say so?

Exactly. High expectations often produce big disappointments. If you want something to happen, speak up.

12- A lot of women (not all, of course) like to think that their significant others pick up on their ambiguous hints.They say they want pizza, but they mean they want Italian food. They say "quiet time alone", they mean "loud grandiose raging party".

I hate the subtle hints girl are said to make ...well that is according to legend. If I want something I say it or get it myself.
