That is so funny. At least it is to me, I am not the one that is going to find I have no chocolate chips when I go to make cookies.
I almost bet anyone that has a household has run into that problem. Chocolate chips missing, a bag of caramels, the nuts you planned on adding to fudge or cookies. The half of a pint of ice cream that you wanted to sit down and eat after a really bad day only to find that someone beat you to it.
All this teaches you that you have to find real good hiding places if you plan on making something with an item that others love. (Tough thing is when you yourself forget where you put the ingredients....been there, done that..)
