Today, my wife suddenly texted me to meet her halfway beetween our house and the supermarket. I immediately put my shoes on and started walking eager to get to her as fast as I could to surprise her. Turns out she was carrying three heavy bags and yelled at me for being slow and by foot. FML

Could have been that she asked him to meet her at a place halfway in-between and he thought he was being invited for a meal or a drink there.

OP's kinda vague on the subject but there's no reason to think he knew she was coming home from the supermarket, that's just what turned to have happened.

For her to wait at the supermarket and call you to use the car to pick her up? If you have three heavy bags, don't start walking and subsequently get angry about the bags being heavy, you can't have it both ways...

Was legit about to comment that...this fml doesn't give much info. Was he trying to surprise her WITH something? And how far was the halfway point? Not much I'm guessing if you were able to walk..


I was going to say the same thing. And surprising her by getting there quickly makes no sense. That wouldn't surprise me, it would make me happy. Though it's worth noting a vehicle would have been even faster.

She didn't say she was at the market, just halfway there from their home, giving an example of her location. She didn't say she wanted him to drive either. Besides, if they had a car at home, why did she walk to the store and buy more than she could carry? Fyl OP, because your wife deserved it.


It's the norm to walk to and from places in Europe, so it makes perfect sense that she walked. It's possible she underestimated her ability to carry it all. It happens sometimes.


Right. Remind me, if ever we get married and I go shopping and find something you've been wanting for ages but I already have as much as I can carry, you won't want to help carry the groceries so I should just not get that present for you.

So take the heavy bags from her and enjoy a nice walk together back to your house. This doesn't seem like a situation to get upset about on your part. I'm a reasonable person and I would have yelled at you too.

The wife should have explained what she wanted OP to meet her for. Not just tell him to meet her halfway and expect him to figure it out.

Come on, ladies, you know we guys don't think that way.
