This guy is a jerk

Kansas resident Lee Wilson planted 80 acres of sunflowers as a 50th-anniversary gift for his wife.

A total of 1.2 million sunflowers.

He did all of this without his wife’s knowledge, making it a surprise.

“What’s a guy get his gal for the 50th?” Wilson said. “And so I put a lot of thought into it, and she always liked sunflowers. And I thought, ‘This is the year to plant sunflowers,’ so I planted her 80 acres of sunflowers.”

“It made me feel very special,” said wife Renee Wilson. “It couldn’t have been a more perfect anniversary gift than a field of sunflowers.”

When I read this story, I had exactly one thought:

What a jerk.

Husbands like me are trying like hell to impress our wives, and then this jerk comes along and plants more than a million sunflowers for his wife.

Way to ruin it for the rest of us, Lee.
