Do people still say “tool”? Or is that too 1990′s? I’m dating myself. Anyhow, this is not about my dh, and if you are married it will make you overflow with love for yours. If you are a guy reading this, you should put this in the: “Never do that” file. I think this is quite possibly the most hideous thing I have ever heard. (And since I don’t have anything else to blog about today, I’m going to share it!)
A couple we know were expecting their second child. The other day, the guy comes into work and says how his wife had been having contractions all night but they hadn’t gone anywhere. He asked a few people their opinion about whether he should drive to the airport to pick up his mother who was flying in (the airport is one that’s 2 hours away). Everyone said no, and some even offered to go and get his mother for him. He declined, saying that he didn’t think his wife was having the baby today. He left her alone with their first child (a toddler) to drive up there. His wife had a Dr’s appt and lo and behold, she was admitted. He continued on his way to get his mother while his wife had the baby.
Who does that? I mean really!? A tool, I tell you. I’m going to have to bite my tongue should I run into him.
