Woman's extraordinary lengths to help 'manchild' boyfriend do the food shopping; She (luckily) thinks it's cute - but others have described him as a "manchild".

Thanks to a shopping list, one besotted girlfriend recently gave an interesting insight into herrelationship.

And it turns out that one woman's "cute" is another person's idea of sheer incompetence.

So where do you stand on this?

Rara, from South Africa, tweeted grabs of a WhatsApp conversation with her partner who was in charge of thefood shoppingand wrote: "He struggles so much with grocery shopping, so pictures have to accompany the list or it'll just be a mess. Cutest thing."

She wasn't exaggerating. In addition to the shopping list were pictures of each item - like tinned tomatoes, pasta and a pepper.

There was also some confusion over grapes/grapefruit.

Obviously Rara takes it all in her stride, but others weren't quite as understanding.

Several unimpressedTwitterusers weighed in.

One asked: "Why is being an incompetent manchild suddenly cute?"

Another agreed: "Nothing cute here...Grow up!"

"Why are men just...allowed to be this clueless?" wondered someone else.

Others suggested that Rara was enabling his behaviour by "mothering" him in this way.

People also theorised that this cluelessness was all a cunning ruse so she'd eventually get fed up and do the shopping herself.

"This man knows exactly what these things are, he's only doing this so you go yourself instead of sending him next time."

Which is probably what we'd end up doing, as it seems like a lot less hassle than this rigmarole.
