mars and venus, or maybe planet clueless

Conversation that just took place-

Josh: I need to run to Home Depot to pick up some stuff for that light socket that exploded (!!) in the guest bedroom.

Halloweenlover: Okay, but not tonight please. I need you to come home to deal with the demon spawn.

Josh: That's fine, although do you want to just go to Home Depot instead?

Halloweenlover: What?

Josh: Well, it's easy, I can tell you what to get if you want to go instead.

Halloweenlover: (flummoxed) With the two kids? Why would I want to go to Home Depot?

Josh: I meant if you thought it could be a fun outing, you know, to go with the kids.

Halloweenlover: .......

Josh: I thought maybe you would like to take them to Home Depot, I can tell you exactly what to get. Wouldn't it be fun?

Halloweenlover: ....... Umm, nooooo, but thanks anyway.

One question- DOES HE LIVE ON THIS PLANET? HAS HE MET MY CHILDREN? DO YOU THINK HE MIGHT BE SMOKING CRACK?

More importantly, is my husband the only one who is this clueless?

nope.

I still blame the water supply in Town They Grew Up In circa 1979-1987 or whatever.

its a man thing

the fact that you told him you needed help with the demon spawn meant nothing and didn't register

What he SHOULD have said is, "I'll come home, get the kids, and take them out to run errands."

For a moment I thought he meant that he would come home and look after the kids and you could go ALONE and yes, that would be fun, even to Home Depot because you would be ALONE and that would be fun... but No! He is the same as my husband and many million more over the world I am sure.

I vote the crack pipe. Or something. It can't just be a guy thing, can it? I'm no expert...
