Things That Annoy Me Thursday: So Many Man Deodorants

Tom was like, "Could you pick me up more deodorant when you go to the grocery store? I'm almost out."

I said sure, no problem. I knew he used Degree deodorant. He used to get Old Spice, but he switched to Degree when he was deployed because it was all they had. Now he prefers it.

So I went to the grocery store and saw this:



I hadn't had caffeine yet. I blinked in confusion. Did he want 24 hour protection? 48? 48 sounded better. Wouldn't you want more protection? Then there was sport protection. Run protection. Protection just because.

"Is this how men feel when we send them to the store for stuff?" I said out loud. An old lady shuffling past gaped at me.

I should have taken a picture of the deodorant Tom uses. Because I was so completely lost. I almost asked a man what deodorant he thought was best, but I didn't want to frighten him.

In the end, I picked the one that had 48 hour protection. I thought it made the most sense. But Tom was like, "Er. That's not the one I get."



Balls.

Do you know the one he gets has TIME RELEASED MOLECULES? I mean? And men say girl crap is weird.

I tried, guys. I tried.

  2. Send him shopping for feminine hygiene products next time and then tell him you wanted the one with the plastic applicator when he returns with the cardboard applicator kind. :)
    I recently got the wrong tofu for my husband to cook with because apparently light firm, which has less calories, isn't the same as original firm. It all turned out fine in the end, but I just go by the texture requirements, not the caloric ones. :)

  3. Luckily, Ken will use whatever I buy him. He's not too picky. As long as I like the way he smells, he's happy! :)

  4. Hahaha! Kyle is an Old Spice guy so that's easy. He is lucky I have a stock pile of it.

  6. My husband has used the same deodorant for 20 years so it's easy to pick up some for him. However, the few times the store has been out and I've had to buy something different, he's been less than happy.

  7. Hahaha! I always take pictures or I dig I the trash for the old bottle. Or I did. Now I know what he uses! Degree is bomb by the way. I just got the one for ladies and it beats the hell out of Lady Speed Shit and I've got a Secret you've got b.o.

  8. There are so many different kinds! My husband has super sensitive skin so if I get the wrong kind, he can't even suck it up and use it or he'll most likely end up with a rash. I've pretty much got it down now, but there are so many that sometimes I get confused.

  11. I do the same thing. My older son is so picky, and I can never remember which one he likes!

  12. haha! I'm certain it would be just as confusing for them, though, to pick out ours!
    I usually send screenshots.
