The key details:

Husband is at a Masters viewing party in the neighborhood.

Husband texts saying he will be home when the tournament is over.

Husband returns home one hour and thirty minutes after the tournament ends.

Wife is thoroughly annoyed.

Husband thinks wife is being “ridiculous” by requesting that he send her a quick text at some point letting her know that he will be late.

Question: Is it “ridiculous” that wife requests a text update when husband is running over an hour late?

    I know I’m late to the party on this one, but since Papa has gotten both our girls to watch the Masters with him, and they watch it on the Iphone, so it goes on FOREVER~
    My solution~I’m leaving next year! For the whole entire weekend. Maybe LA (we live north of SF) maybe to New York. Anywhere but home where Papa sits, on the couch with 2/3 of his adoring girls while the other 1/3 of adoring girls tries to go about her daily life.
    Wanna join me??

    This absolutely drives me crazy. Insane. Bonkers.

    I don’t care if you’re going to be gone until midnight. Just don’t tell me you’re going to be home by 2pm and then not show, or call, or text. I know things come up and there are delays, but unless there’s an emergency, surely there’s a 30 minute gap where you can let somebody know (and if there’s an emergency, of course you’d get a hold of me anyway, right? Duh.)
