I haven't got a clue what the answer to this is. I know sodium chloride is commonly known as salt, but I can't think what would commonly be known as sodium chloride, in the kitchen.

If the question was "in a chemistry lab, what is commonly known as Sodium Chloride?" then the answer would of course be salt.

So I'm stumped, unless this is a classic from the PHer and you've completely fked up the question.
Maybe general knowledge quizzes aren’t for you then.
The question is wrong though. It should be, "what is the common name for the chemical Sodium Chloride, that you would in most kitchens"?
Not really, I’d consider salt an item. The question is pretty obvious and makes perfect sense.
FFS! laugh

There's a thread running on Mumsnet at the mo where women confess to their own misunderstandings. Some utter classics on there.

Including thinking Simon and Garth Funkle were the Funkle brothers, and not knowing Frank Sinatra was one bloke. Rather a duo, Franks & Archer.

To balance it out a bit, one woman posts her amazement when her husband suggested they go to Abroad on their holiday, because loads of people go there year after year so it must be nice!!!
I can't find that particular thread (link, anyone?) but I found this: https://www.buzzfeed.com/patricksmith/revenge-ofht...eekeek

Not sure if this is funny unless you know the Mrs but I found it funny on several levels. It’s my 40th this year. We are comfortable financially and my Mrs asked what I would like for my 40th. I said a set of carbon fibre engine cover pieces for my r8. She asked how much it was and I said £2600. She said “oh no that’s too much for a birthday!” I asked how much she had in mind (she doesn’t work so it’s essentially a present from me anyway)

She said “Couple o’ CDs!”
I am sure on her birthday she will be delighted with her HMV vouchers. (or the equivalent of HMV)

She was probably thinking of something she could buy and wrap.

The other evening my OH had been in the bathroom and I got a glass of wine to drink while watching TV.

On her return she questioned why I hadn't poured her a glass. I asked if I had 'sommelier' tattooed on my forehead?

No, 'selfish cxxx' came the reply. frown

I can understand that you could say that you didn't know whether or not she'd fancy
a glass, but I can also see where she's coming from too, a no win situation Lee.

I hope that the wine was a fine Claret or perhaps a rich Burgundy to compensate for the hassle.drinkgrumpy

Not my missus, but a woman on BBC R2 Drivetime last night. They have a quiz which requires a group of people to guess the name of a celebrity within 21 questions which can only have a Yes/No answer. If you answer incorrectly it passes to the next person.

About half way through:

Bint 1 - "Are you a woman". Answer is no.
Bint 2 - "Are you a man". The answer was pretty fking obviously yes!

She does have a certain bluntness which tends to avoid ambiguity.

The wine was part of a mixed case from Majestic, the bottle in question was rather nice so I wasn't over inclined to share. smile

maybe she was frightened of being publicly shamed for assuming there are only 2 genders. Or maybe the producers told her that as these who am i yes no games often start with gender questions, that she has to ask both... the issue would have come if the answer was no to the second one....

And if true, justifies her alleged retort.

He should have hidden in the bathroom with it. Rookie error.

But his wife was in the bathroom! It would have been a bit crowded in there with both of them and the bottle of wine

Why was she in the bathroom on her own? Bathtime is a time for conversation and a certain amount of cuddling.
