“My wife complains I don’t buy her flowers. To be honest, I didn’t know she sold flowers”

"My wife is always complaining that I never buy her flowers. In my defense, I didn’t even know she sold flowers” was posted on Twitter by Andrew Mexo O’Connor (and others) on February 8, 2012. The joke is that the wife wanted the husband to “buy flowers for her,” not to “buy her flowers (that she sold).”

“My wife complains I don’t buy her flowers. In all honesty, I didn’t know she sold flowers” was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on April 16, 2019. The joke went viral in 2019.
