            wanted to go instead. So I said, OK, thanks. So he comes back w/o them. Then I ask why, and he says they were $22 for the psyllium ones which I thought was too much. I said how much were the non psyllium ones? He said he didn't look. So I was like what? Why? Why didn't you just call from there and we could decide the best option? This went on and on for about 10 minutes with him being upset I'm even questioning him. THEN he says, well they were all expensive. So I say, but you said yoiu didn't look at them all. And then another 20 minutes of him denying he ever said that and why am I upset with him and me trying to explain it's not that weird to be puzzled and then irritated/upset when he changes his story and I can't figure out where this thing even started.

              have said anything, it would have made sense. then he's furious i'm so upset about fiber pills leaving me in the position of explaining it's not about the actual fiber pills, and defending myself for being confused because he initially said "I didn't look at the other ones".
