Jeff kept replaying the incident at Target over and over in his mind. He wasn't sure why he snapped at his wife Karen over the decision to buy organic peanut butter versus their usual Jiffy brand purchase. He was the one who ate the majority of peanut butter in the house - so he should have the final say on the matter.
