This may be a petty complaint,but it's really irritating me. A friend and family member are both guilty of this,and often. I say I'm going to the shop. They ask me to get them a sweet,or some other snack but when asked what kind they say 'Oh it doesn't matter' I ask for a few options so I get them something they'll enjoy only to be told that anything will do.
Inevitably when I return with the item they've chosen they complain that they don't really like that,or they weren't really in the mood for a chocolate bar.
WIBU to shove said confectionery item in a rather tender place? Or bring back something I know they hate. Or more likely just refuse to get them anything?
YANBU! This annoys me too. It's on a par with asking people if they want tea or coffee and getting told "I'll have whatever you're making" only to be met with a bit of a cat bum mouth when you hand the drink over. Just tell me what you want!!!
If that happened once, it would be the last time. The next time I would say 'what do you want me to get you from the shop' & if they said 'anything' I'd say 'that's what you said last time & then you grumbled at what I got, so it's specific item or nothing this time'. Some people like playing silly power games & I haven't got patience for it!!
