Valentine's Day Fail

Or in other words why you should not purchase a Valentine's day card when you are not feeling well....

This is the card that I purchased for Tyran, my sweet husband.

I thought I had done so well.

I loved the look of it.

The simple straight forward message.

It wasn't until I went to sign it this morning to slip into his work bag that I realized my mistake.


Hey hon.

I have a card that you can give to me today.

Love ya!

Heading out the door to find another card.

I think it is awesome!! I really like the look of the card too. Very masculine, as far as Valentines cards go. So I could see how this could happen.

I say you just scratch out wife and write husband. It's a pretty card and you should get to use it:)

That is a classic! Love it!

Mary said...

That's so something I would do! I also just got back from snagging some chocolates for my sweetie...such a last minute shopper!

lol, I think I would have given it anyways with a side note that said something like "well...pretend that says FROM YOUR WIFE and lets call it good, k?"

But then I don't know Tyran, so maybe that wouldn't have worked with him, but I know it would have been ok in our house, even though I wouldn't get to live it down for at least a decade.

Too funny!

I love it! That is totally something I would have done. And I don't know about your husband but I'm sure mine would appreciate my purchasing a card for him to give me.

LOL! Oh so funny. Last year my husband bought me a box of chocolates. It was in a heart shaped box. He was carrying it around the store in one arm and flowers in the other. When he presented it to me on Valentines, the box had said at the bottom of the box "FOR HIM". I often wonder how many people in the store wondered who his boyfriend was in town.

I would have gotten the white out!!!

Funny!

I've been known to buy cards that say the perfect thing, but aren't addressed to the person I want it to be to, and just cross it out and rewrite.

Lara said...

Oh, that is funny!

If it makes you feel any better, my husband got the card that he had written me on our anniversary six months ago (still sitting on my dresser), and wrote at the top "Ditto. Valentine's Day 2011"

It did make me smile. :)

Judi said...

You're much better than me,I would have just crossed it out and wrote in Hubby!! and vice versa for my hubs ;o)

Haha, that is SO funny!!! At least you got a card!

Cheeseboy said...

Ha ha! Men don't usually read the prewritten stuff anyway.

M-Cat said...

Hey at least you got your hubby a card - I bought him dinner at McDonalds and then sent him back home to check on the bugbusters

Amander said...

Ha! I would have just scribbled out the "wife" part.

Jessica G. said...

That is awesome! :) You could have totally gotten away with it...just a little heart sticker and a marker and it's fixed.

wendy said...

that's great..........
I think you should cross out WIFE and put husband....then HE CAN keep it and give it to you next valentines day, cross out husband and re-write Wife...
and then........on and on
could be sentimental.....or NOT
