Be careful what you tell a husband who is a programmer
A woman asks her husband, a programmer, to go shopping:
"Dear, please, go to the nearby grocery store to buy some bread. Also, if they have eggs, buy a dozen."
Twenty minutes later the husband comes back bringing 12 loaves of bread.
His wife is flabbergasted.
"Dear, why on earth did you buy a dozen loaves of bread?"
"They had eggs."
