I didn't want to thread jack. I guess the best is to start from the beginning.

  • Missed my shower because DH had to jump my car before he could go to work and I woke up as he was getting ready to leave.
  • Met mom to get some stuff I left at her house.
  • Went to lunch with Mom and Gram.
  • Went to a new store in town thinking they would have what I wanted to buy DH for his birthday. They didn't.
  • Decided not to try the mall and just order online.
  • Went to Costco to start food shopping.
  • Before I even got out of the car, I got a phone call from the school. (I'm listed as emergency contact for a friend's little boy.) My first thought was seizure because he's epileptic. Nope. He was vomiting and had diarrhea.
  • Unable to reach friend, I drive 45 minutes to go pick him up.
  • Just a mile or so from the school, I reach her.
  • Pick him up anyway.
  • He admits to me the vomiting was on purpose. (I think the diarrhea was probably him sneaking cheese...he's lactose-intolerant.)
  • Take him home where he promptly lied to his mom about it. (He was obviously feeling fine.) He told her the truth once I said something to him.
  • Came back to Winchester, went to Aldi (discount grocery). They didn't have what I wanted so I left.
  • Went to Petsmart, bought crickets for the lizard. Got stuck waiting for price check.
  • Realized I was wrong about the location of the tux place. Went back to Costco bought 20ish meals worth of meat and some other items for $106.
  • Back-tracked and went to the tux place to return the tux DH rented for BIL's wedding.
  • Went to Walmart. Spent another $47 in groceries...forgot to use my gift card (the whole reason I went to Walmart and not Martins.)
  • Didn't get asparagus...they were out.
  • Had to stop and get gas.
  • Checked mail and then FINALLY made it home.
I'm exhausted (and slightly annoyed at a particular 8 year old).

Glad that day is over for you and hope today is much, much better!!!

If the kid continues with that I would tell the friend you're not prepared to be the emergency contact anymore. Then she will have to deal with his issues and get things sorted.

I totally agree with Sharron...one more stunt like that and I'd be dropping myself as the kid's emergency contact. I know that probably leaves your friend in a bad position, but you can't have the kid be putting you into that situation either. That's what the emergency contact is for - an emergency. Not stuff like this.

Yea, I was quite annoyed. Luckily, in four years (he started at around 4 through EI) this is the first time I've been called. I probably wouldn't have minded so much if it weren't for the fact that I had so much to do. (Or if, you know, he was really sick.) There have been other times when I have dropped everything and driven down for him, just not because the school called. (Once was because they wanted someone to help with him during the swine flu vaccine and his mom couldn't be there. The other was after school when he had a particularly bad seizure that led to the epilepsy diagnosis--his mom couldn't reach her DH and was scared. She also doesn't drive and couldn't just call 911 because of her daughter. Someone had to be with her. Add to the fact that she was pregnant and needed someone in case of another seizure...)
