So my hubby works as a laboror and each day has different jobs that can be up to 3 hours away one way. This is rural ND and roads are horrible winter this time of year. I asked him to ask his boss if he can stay more local the next couple weeks as my due date is tomorrow. I am not comfortable with him being 3 hours away. The bonus is that half the time he has no cell coverage in the middle of nowhere so it could be like 12 hours before I get a hold of him.
So, he comes home from work all happy and says yep, they agree that I will be sent out no more than 30 minutes from town and they are putting "darren" on back up. Darren is my husbands supervisor. I said back up for what? To go get you if your cell doesn't ring? Hubby goes, no to go to hospital and sit with you....... what? Like it is interchangebale? You can sub one electritian for another when it comes to work but this is child birth. You can't just send a different guy in your place. Total guys point of view. I said no, if they can't get me you, then your boss himself will drive me to the hospital and be forced to watch the whole process. So maybe he will make sure he knows where you are.....
Lmao!!! Bless him. My husband is the same he requested to work around town now till baby is born so he can get back in time :-) I wouldn't be thrilled if one of his work mates showed up in his place lol!
LOL!! I've been dealing with the same thing lately. DH is actually heading back from NY right now and will going to NH on Monday. I'm hoping after this no more long hauls for a while. Another issue I've been having is with him leaving his phone in the truck all day, drives me crazy!! Couldn't imagine him setting up a sub though, that's too funny!
