‘Pantene’ Means Many Choices

The wall of Pantene choices that Councilman MikeK encountered.

Councilman MikeK offers this oft-thought lament of the modern husband/father (via Facebook): “My daughter, Nora, sends me to Fred Meyer for shampoo on my way home from a meeting. I ask for specific details. She says “Pantene”. I ask for more details because this (above) is what I'm met with in the Pantene section. I kid you not these are all varieties of that brand. Ladies of Facebook land, we don't ask for details because we are dumb (mostly). We just can't bear being met with that look of 'you can't be trusted with anything can you?' every time. Have mercy on us. Give us some usable details!

DFO: I still am shaken from the time that I was sent — by myself while my wife shopped elsewhere in Coeur d'Alene Super 1 — to pick up some deodorant. I was overwhelmed by the choices. How do the females in our life do it?
