She Was Sick, but Her Husband Woke Her up to Ask Why She Hadn’t Put Away the Groceries That He’d Ordered and Taken Delivery Of

A Covid-stricken woman recently went online to ask if her husband had been right to assume that she would put away the frozen groceries that he’d ordered and taken delivery of while she was in bed asleep with a fever and he was playing video games. Here’s what she had to say.

“My husband and I are both sick with Covid,” the woman began. “He’s been sicker than me for the past few days but has been on the mend since yesterday. I’ve had minor symptoms but only started running a fever and feeling worse today.”

“I asked him to make a soup out of broth, pasta, and frozen veggies for dinner, but he said he would rather order some pre-made soups from a grocery store that delivers.”

The woman said that while her husband had been making the order, she’d decided to clean their kitchen in case her symptoms worsened the next day.

Because she was cleaning, she didn’t get a chance to see what her husband was ordering or add any items for herself.

After finishing the cleaning, the woman felt worse than ever and told her husband she was going to take a bath.

She needed rest

The woman fell asleep in the bath. She woke up feeling dreadful and crawled into bed.

But she didn’t get to sleep for very long.

After a couple of hours, the woman’s husband woke her up. He was upset that she hadn’t put the grocery delivery away and that a lot of the food was now defrosted and spoiled.

Her husband then explained to her that he’d thought she’d heard the doorbell and would know that he’d left the food for her to put away. He hadn’t done it because he’d been busy with his video game.

The woman admitted that, as she normally does all of the cooking and shopping, she did like to put certain ingredients away in certain places, but as this was largely frozen stuff, it didn’t matter as long as it went in the freezer.

The woman didn’t think she was to blame for the wasted food, especially as her husband was the one who’d ordered it and taken delivery. But she was also so tired and ill that she wasn’t sure she was thinking straight. She asked the internet for their thoughts.

As you might have guessed, the internet didn’t hold back. “Your husband is incapable of moving food from the counter to the fridge or freezer?” asked one. “I mean, he plays video games, so I assume he has hands. Why is he not able to put things in the freezer?”

“Sounds like you are overdue for a discussion about division of labor,” said another. “Particularly if his default assumption is that groceries put themselves away or are taken care of by the magic wife fairy.”
