I remember back when we were still dating and he was mad at me over something (I forgot what was it). We used to work in the same company but in different department. So that day unaware that he was still being mad at me I went to his office during lunch hours. Both of us have had our lunch so we spent the rest of the time to talk and laugh. And then just when I was back in my office he texted me to tell me that he had forgotten he was mad at me and that our lovely conversation before would not make that go away. In other words, now that he remembered he decided to be back at being mad at me again. Hilarious wasn’t it?
Fast forwarded to two weeks ago. In normal days I am the one who drops him at his office before driving K to school and have the car with me for the rest of the day. In the evening I will go pick him up from his office. But that day K was not well and had to skip school. Hence J took the car with him.
I spent the whole day taking care of K and by afternoon he was already feeling so much better. So I drawn myself in my blogging world and tried to finish my abandoned e-book. I didn’t realize the time when I took a break and saw that it was almost eleven at night. There was no sign that J was coming home.
I checked my cellphone to see whether he had texted to come home late but nothing was from him. I quickly rang him.
“Are you still in the office?” I asked. Sometimes his boss takes him and other colleagues to have dinner together.
“Yes” he sounded annoyed, “why was your phone off?!”
“What do you mean it’s off?” I looked at my phone. It was on all the time. “It’s on the whole day honey. It’s probably bad connection from the provider”
“Whatever” he replied impatiently. I could notice from his voice that he was so pissed about it. “Pick me up now!”
“Huh? Pick you up?”
“Yes! I couldn’t get through your phone. You make me spend most of the evening in my office waiting for you!”
“But honey, you have the car with you”
“K skipped school today remember? You drove the car yourself to the office”
He paused for a moment.
“Shoot! Thank God I didn’t call for a taxi!” now he was rushing, “ok I am going home now. See you” and he hang up.
You see, in marriage miscommunication does happen. If I didn’t call my husband that night, for sure he would have taken a taxi and left our car in his office parking lot. So calling to check each other’s whereabouts is really important as long as you don’t go overboard about it.
Have you ever had silly fight with your husband?
How did you resolve it?
