So, my FH is the most impulsive person ever. He just decided he wants to buy 2 lbs. of cashews online and pay $32 to have them shipped 3-day before we go visit our family in VA this weekend, so he can “eat them on the trip”. Really? $32 to expedite cashews?? So, he asked me what I thought, and naturally, I told him I thought it was stupid to spend that much to expedite cashews. So, now, I’m responsible for bursting his bubble of joy over the nuts. Am I nuts?! (pun intended). Does your FH do anything that just really baffles you?

Why doesn’t he just go to the store and buy them?

@BoiledPNut: That was my first reaction. Cashews are available everywhere…and for waaay cheaper than $16/pound. Or wait, was the $32 just the expedited shipping cost? YIKES.
OP, you are not nuts. I can imagine no scenario in which either my husband or me would spend $32 to expedite cashews, even though we could easily afford it. Is spending normally an issue for him? If not, I’d just write it off as a fluke.

You’re not nuts, I would be livid if he did that. Granted, in the grand scheme of things $32 is not a lot, but to expidite cashews?!?! Not worth it!

Ummmm do you guys have a bulk food store or a grocery store nearby?! Do these cashews come with magical powers?! That’s crazy!!!!
Darling Husband asks me to do silly things all the time. Most of them along the lines of ‘Hey, can you drop whatever you’re doing and do _______ for me?’ because I’m home all day (working from home). Uhh no. Yesterday I was working, he called and said he was about 20 minutes from home. Could I start making him some lunch? No. No I cannot. I’m busy. When you get home you can make your own damn sandwich, it only takes like 2 minutes! However, he did bring me home a Starbucks so I guess we’re even?! LOL!

Hard to figure out what exactly was going on in the ol’ noggin there. My Fi hasn’t yet baffled me with peculiar ways, but we haven’t moved in to gether yet – I’m sure I’m in for some suprises

This is hilarious, my SO does ridiculous things like this all the time simply because he wants the best or wants it when he wants it. As long as you/he can afford it, and it isnt something he does on a regular basis you should let it slide and laugh (because I sure did)

Whoa…. that’s crazy. Sounds like something my Fi would do…

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: lol this reminds of that post where a girls Fiance was eating cold chicken wings in the shower…I love boys!

Is he a rock star, a movie star or a multi-millionaire? Because those are the only people who come to mind who are allowed to do something as eccentric as expediting an online purchase of nuts.
Those had seriously better be the best damn cashews ever grown on god’s green earth.

my Fiance does stuff like that all the time…FOR INSTANCE.. the man is obsessed with Walgreens for some reason.. he will find any excuse to go to Walgreens and buy the most random stuff. Last Walgreen purchases:
-Beefy Jerky, a spray bottle, a”chrome” chain from a machine outside of the store ( dont ask me why), nasal spray and new combs
He is also hat obsessed, he own,s more hats than I do pairs of shoes and still says things like ” I need to go to hat world and buy a ( insert fav team name here) hat”
He also collects cups.. so anytime we go somewhere and there is a possibility that he can get a plastic cup ( like a $10 beer at a Titans game) we come home with 4.

This whole weekend the Boyfriend or Best Friend was getting on my nerves!! Thanks to Hurricane Irene we had to stay indoors all weekend which caused absolute cabin fever for us both. We decided to do some rearranging around the house. So I’m in my zone all day yesterday organzing my bonus room/vanity, 1. Bae!! (thats what he calls me), I come running, he’s sitting on the pot and asks “what do you want to do about lunch?” 2. “Bae come here real fast!!!” I sprint thinking it’s important…he’s on youtube, “have you ever heard this song?” 3. “Hun are you busy?” “Yes, I’m washing dishes and making banana bread.” “Could you help me please? It’ll take 5 minutes.”……30 minutes later….
Yep that was my weekend. It’s kinda funny and cute now but I wanted to scream all weekend.

@Riki_Bay:Omg Darling Husband did that last night too! I’m working away and he’s like “Oh quick quick I need you to look something up online.” Okay fine. Then I’m in the middle of looking it up, and he wants me to find something on YouTube instead. Uhh what happened to the first thing? Apparently it was only important for 0.25 seconds. Sigh.

WOW, I’d be pissed! Those cashews better be spitting out money when you bite into them!
My FH decided that he wants to make sandwiches for his lunch to take to work. Great idea! The bad part is that he bought this 2 gallon thing of mayo. That’s no so bad, you say? Well it’s bad when he BARELY puts any on his sandwich! He seriously spreads the thinnest layer of mayo on the bread! We’ve had the mayo for 3 months so far and he’s barely done with 5% of the jar. We’re running out of space in our fridge too 🙁 And I hate mayo, so I’m not using any of it either lol.
A man’s mind…the 8th wonder of the world.
