Picking up seafood - is it really that hard?

OK, I don't let the Mrs. pick out any steak, or actually most meats.  Never know what she will bring home.  I thought I was safe today, asking her to pick up some bacon wrapped scallops and some shrimp.  The scallops are already prepared at Wegmans, so no issue there.  Asked her to get a pound of 16 - 20 shrimp to go with the scallops.
As I go out to light up the Egg, she happens to mention the shrimp are still frozen - solid.  Would have been nice to know earlier, but shrimp thaw pretty quick in a bowl of cold water.  The shrimp were 21-25/pound, so smaller than I was looking for, and they were not the easy peel, deveined which she knows I always get for ease of cleaning.  Prep time doubled, but they still turned out fine.
From now on, I'll probably pick up anything I want to cook on the Egg. 

It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.
