I have sustained a minor injury from a file cabinet.
Am missing a chunk of my hand. Am headed to the hospital for patch work.
The above is an email I received from my husband this afternoon…Please tell me what you all would think if you read this.
Now, I do have a tendency to overreact, especially if it involves a loved one, but I kinda freaked out when I read this. Granted, I figured hubby wasn’t in mortal trouble because he was able to type this email…but I also read “missing a chunk of my hand” and “hospital”. I tried to call his cell phone – it was turned off. I tried his desk phone – he didn’t answer. I emailed him back and asked for more info. I got the following reply:
What the heck?? So, there’s more to this…and I believe I’ve blogged about it before. Even if the injury isn’t that bad, B has a tendency to go into shock and PASS OUT when blood or needles make an appearance. I was afraid that might be the situation today, so…
I started making phone calls. The only phone number (other than his desk phone that he wasn’t answering) that I could find for his office is an 800 number…someone in St. Louis answered that phone and he worked very hard to route me to some nice man in Wichita, who said he knew B.
When I told this nice man why I was calling, he took my number and said he’d call me back. He called me back about 3 minutes later, and this is what he said: B had cut his finger, he had gone to the VA hospital next door to get a band aid!!! Yes, I said band aid! That punk!
Less than 2 minutes after this, I got a nasty email from B demanding to know why I had called his work and embarrassed him…may I please direct your attention back to the beginning of this post to his asinine email that I received…so, now B is pissed at me, and I’m pissed at him for throwing me into a panic…what a day. It’s Monday, and so far it SUCKS!
There are many more reasons why it sucks besides the “missing chunk of hand”, but I am not going to get into them. Instead, I will attempt to shut down my computer and head home. I need a good workout tonight!
