Most spouses would respond to the question "Do you want me to draw you a map?" with a massive eye roll, but in the case of Era Golwalkar, an illustrated list is the key to getting her husband Gaurav to pick up just what she needs at the grocery store.
According to , the couple, who lives in Pune, India, takes turns grocery shopping every other week—but Gaurav isn't quite as savvy as his "foodie" wife when it comes to picking out the best veggies. So, in a brilliant move, she decided to start making very detailed grocery lists for her husband that include lengthy descriptions and elaborate diagrams outlining exactly what the ideal piece of produce should look like, to avoid any potential confusion.
Era, who is an , a photo of one of her lists, which now has over 5,000 likes and 1,000 shares—so obviously it's a struggle a lot of people can relate to:
Since some people were a little confused by the extreme specifics of Era's list (namely, why she needed both yellow and red tomatoes), she also drew up an answer key to explain her requests, which her husband tweeted a photo of as a follow-up. It details how to tell whether or not produce is ripe or not based on the difference in color and shape. (She says yellow tomatoes can last 3-4 days while red ones are ready to use.)
Although Era says that some might think her lists are condescending, her husband thinks they're incredibly helpful. "This is how we have been making our shopping lists for the last four to five months now," Era told . "It has been working well."
We have to admit, these two don't look like they're spending any time fighting over grocery shopping.
