YOU SHOULD KNOW
YOU SHOULD KNOW
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!”
A re-run from July 2015
*Unopened mayo does not need to be in the fridge, at least in this country.
