If you woke up at 4:00 a.m., realized that your husband had never made it home from work, then called his cell phone and discovered it was either turned off or the battery was dead, what would you do?
A. Call his cell phone obsessively every 5-8 minutes in the hopes that he'd eventually turn it on and answer it.
B. Start calling hospitals to see if he'd been in an accident.
C. Start calling police departments to see if he'd been arrested.
D. All of the above.
I went with option D and didn't get a lot of sleep last night. I've never been so happy in my life to see him as when he finally showed up around 7:00 a.m. Of course, I was extremely irritated with him as well. Turns out his boss asked him to stay at the restaurant all night and re-inventory the food, as they discovered last week that there was some sort of error that was resulting in their food costs being off by about $150K. He just forgot to mention that to me. And forgot to charge his cell phone.
Husbands. Will they never get the whole "call me if you're going to be late" thing?
