This is a Mrs. Cranky comment that throws me every time.  Looking back, I think this may not be restricted to Mrs. Cranky, but is a characteristic typical of many woman I have known…the “You Should Know” syndrome.

“Kare, where is the mayo?”

“You should know”

“But I don’t know.”

“Think about it.”

“I don’t feel like thinking about it, why don’t you just tell me?”

Because you should know.”

“But I don’t!”

"You should!"

"Come on!"

“It is in the pantry.”

“Great, where in the pantry, there are like 12 shelves?”

“You should know.”

“What the “F”, why should I know?”

“Because a week ago before we went shopping, you told me we had a jar of Mayo behind the corn flakes on the cereal shelf…don’t you remember?”

“Obviously not and why didn’t you just tell me that 5 minutes ago, there’s 5 minutes of my life that I’ll never get back.”

“Because you should have known and not had to ask in the first place”

“But I didn’t know, that is why I…never mind…’Third base!’”

“I know you’re a jerk!”


  1. Huh.
    The cereal shelf is for cereal anyway, not Mayo.
    Mayo belongs in the fridge.

  2. The only thing familiar about this is that my husband can never find anything. I just go get it and hand it to him. It's too exhausting to try to describe where every food item is stored.

  3. So the next time she asks you to bring her something, feel free to substitute. "I SHOULD know, but I don't." :)

  4. Might have to try this on hubby; he can't remember if we live on a street, road, way, or drive. Every time he gives the address, he's always looking at me when it comes to that part of it. Its drive. Maybe I should do word association; drive to work, live on a drive.


  5. Have something that doesn't require mayo. That's my suggestion.

    I love your conversations. A lot.

    Have a fabulous day Cranky. ☺

  6. Hi Cranky Man,

    Yup - Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt etc. etc. etc.




  7. I am you - SD is Mrs C - the world is a confusing place ...

  8. You could get a pantry diagram tattooed on your palm.

  9. I always tell SWMBO "I can't find it." She comes over to the fridge/pantry/closet and immediately pulls it out. Then she gives me "the look" and says "I know, it wasn't in the front!"

  10. LOL! For some reason, that reminds me of this:

  11. I cas never find anything in out kitchen, especially in the fridge. I'll stare and stare, and my Mrs. C. will just walk up and pluck the item from thin air, and usually I don't even tell her what I'm looking for.

  12. I still think you two deserve a reality show. Your conversations are priceless.

  13. It's much easier for me to just go grab the mayo, and a reality show with you two would work!

  14. Maybe you need to put on your Bono glasses.

  15. Why does this remind me of a scene from I love Lucy? With you being Lucy and Mrs. Cranky being Ricky Ricardo.

  16. Omg, this reminds me so much of my dad.. Married 56 years to my mom and had to ask every time where the skillet was. Lol..


I love comments, especially some of my commenters are funny as heck!
