I was talking to my father in law earlier today. He was calling because he wanted to talk with my husband about a hockey tournament that my nephew will be playing in.
You know when the hockey tournament is? Next year!!! Of course he didn’t tell me that when he called this afternoon … no .. he told me that he’d call back when Chris got home from work. Of course this is the day that my husband works until 8 so by the time my father in law called we were having a late dinner. So he called an interrupted our dinner to talk about an event that’s not happening until next year.
I know part of it is that my father in law probably just wants to talk to his son. That’s fine … but if he didn’t call almost every day just as we’re sitting down to eat I probably wouldn’t get quite so ticked off about it.
Also .. he’s going to start planning something that’s a year away … and of course the dates will change or something will change about it and this will result in even more back and forth phone calls between my husband, his father, his brother and nephew .. Everything my in-laws plan turns out this way .. well anything that they start planning ahead of time. I think they should just wait until a week before an event to plan how things should go it would save a lot of stress and phone bills.
There was one good thing about talking with my father in law earlier today … he reminded me that I have to look for a cell booster for my mother in laws cell phone. She has poor reception when she tries to use her cell phone in her office, maybe it will work better with a booster. I told her I’d look into one for her.
