Here's the problem, as illustrated by this scenario.

A Republican wife asks her Democrat husband, "Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk and, if they have avocados, get 6.

A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk.

The wife asks him, "Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?"

He replied, "They had avocados."

I don't know, they are not all that bad with directions.

I would kind of expect that the guy would get home empty handed and all beaten to a pulp,
the wife would ask what happened?

The husband would answer, I don't know - I had the stuff you wanted, I passed through the cashier and when I told him the guy behind me would pay for it all, well I woke up like this in the parking lot
