How Many?

Why clear sentence structure is so important...

Terry asks Mary, "Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk and if they have avocados, get 6."
A short time later Mary comes back with 6 cartons of milk.
Terry asks her, "Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?"
She replies, "They had avocados."
