Dramatic title, no? Well, it is so dramatic because this post is full of drama. You all know that volcano that is erupting in Iceland? The one that’s causing flights to be cancelled everywhere, leaving fliers stranded in other countries, anxious to get home but with no way to get there? The one that is causing panic over when it will end, and how much the ash and smoke will affect the health and environment of the citizens of the surrounding area? Well, that volcano is causing lots of drama. More than you’d ever know.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of once again spending my day listening to “Target Girl’s” never-ending complaining, loudly telling the same stories over and over (and over) to anyone that walks by. Well, yesterday was quite possibly the end of the world as we know it, for her at least. Because of the volcano that was grounding most flights around the world, her husband could not come home from his business trip. A travesty. Okay, you can see how that’s annoying. Her husband goes on his business trip. She gets excited for him to return, she’s been alone all week with the baby. Things get tough with a 10 month-old alone…I get it. We’re all (mostly) women, I know that by your husband telling you that he cannot make it home when he planned that some drama might follow because of stress and the sheer emotion that women tend to feel when things don’t go how they might have planned. Except that him not coming home was not the drama.
The drama was that it was his fault, and she spent the day yelling at him and writing snide emails to him because he was not able to come home. He should have planned ahead for something like this. He should understand what he is leaving her with. She’s got to work, and take care of “the kid” as she called her BABY GIRL. And they’re supposed to go on vacation in a week, he needs to get back asap. She stressed that he should be going to his boss complaining about how mad his wife is that he’s travelling like this.
So, let’s recap:
1.) It is this poor guy’s fault that the volcano erupted, therefore not allowing him to get home to his wife and “kid”
2.) His boss is of course going to cancel all future business trips because he complained and stressed how his wife is very angry about the travel. It’s always a good idea to air your dirty laundry and marital arguments to your boss and complain about the job when we’re in a time of some of the highest unemployment rates, and he was unemployed for 7 months until he just recently was able to get this job.
3.) It is motherly to call your baby “the kid”
4.) I need a new job
