We had renos done which included new carpeting in the basement. I’d picked out the carpet without my wife. The old carpet had been torn out by our contractor and rolled up and was in the hallway waiting to go to the dump.
On the day the new carpet was to be installed, my wife called me to complain that the carpet I’d picked looked really bad; she said it looked like something from the early 80’s. I was surprised b/c usually I have the better design tastes between us. When I got home from work I went to check out the newly installed carpet and found that the carpet layer hadn’t put the new carpet in, he’d simply put back the old carpet, which I guess he thought was the new stuff.

Felt kind of bad for him watching him spend the whole next day removing the carpet he’d just installed and replacing it with the new stuff.
