FFF (me): So this is what Balsamic Glaze is” *Shows Mr40 the balsamic glaze I bought in Tesco that’s in the fridge door*
Mr40: I know what Balsamic Glaze is. I’m not stupid.
FFF: I didn’t realise because you bought this *picks up balsamic dressing*
Mr40: Yes I know *getting angry* but Sainsbury’s don’t sell Balsamic Glaze.
FFF: Well they do…Tesco have about 5 different sorts so I imagine Sainsbury’s have a big selection too.
Mr40: Look I looked for Balsamic Glaze. They don’t sell it. I got you the next best thing.
FFF: Yes, and it’s lovely and I’ve used it, but I just thought I’d show you what it looked like so you know next time…..
Mr40: I KNOW WHAT BALSAMIC GLAZE IS. *starts looking more in the fridge* I think I did actually buy some.
FFF: The old Balsamic glaze was 3 years old I’ve chucked it.
Mr40: NO I BOUGHT SOME. I THOUGHT I DID. Anyway, I couldn’t find any (!) so I got that one.
FFF: (backing off).Ok. *Sits down to eat half a pizza and some salad. With Balsamic Glaze*
Mr40: Well, What do you think I do at the supermarket. Eh? Eh?
FFF: *Sits in silence*.
We did discuss it again. He came back from his storming upstairs to ask why I thought he was stupid. I got the dressing out the fridge again and started talking and he cut me off (again). I did eventually say:
FFF: When you bought this dressing, you didn’t say anything about it *Mr40 attempts to interuppt again* so there was a chance you either just couldn’t find it OR that you didn’t know what Balsamic Glaze was. I just thought I’d show you.
FFF: I wasn’t expecting the bloody great balsamic Glaze argument of 2014.
