You’ve probably found yourself in this situation before: You’re running late but you still need to stop by the grocery store for a few things, and in your rush to complete your quest, you end up picking up the wrong thing. This is what we can only assume happened to this man who grabbed diced butternut squash instead off cheese. And because it’s 2017, the entire butternut-cheese ordeal was live-tweeted for our viewing pleasure.

And based on the tweets from writer James Dator, it’s safe to say this man’s attempt at returning his faux pas purchase definitely hits a 10 on the frustration scale for EVERYBODY involved.

In his defense, if you tilt your head and squint a little, diced butternut squash could be mistaken for cheese. Maybe?

Now that we’ve established that this could have happened to any one of us, let’s take a look at what went down.

Things seem to be getting quite intense at this point, but the folks at the grocery store seem willing to compromise.

But that just wasn’t enough for this guy…or his guests.

He had a better idea.

Then things just got worse.

And in the end, there was no cheese to be had.

Dator’s thread of tweets quickly went viral and the internet just couldn’t handle it.

One Twitter user even tweeted in solidarity. false

This is definitely the laugh we didn’t realize we needed today.
