My husband and I had a misunderstanding on the iphone on Saturday.
I drove Katie up to a friend's house and on the way home I wanted to stop at Chick fil a for dinner.
We had earlier in the afternoon decided not to go out for dinner. But I thought a drive thru was fine...and I was right there...So I texted him to ask if he changed his mind.
Are you sure you don't want Chick fil a?
He wrote back;
Immediately I understood that he did not want Chick fil a.
In my mind, he was sure he did not want Chick fil a.
When I got home Patrick paused the tv and followed me in to the kitchen.
"Is this mine?" he said about the bag on the table.
Oh my gosh! He wanted some.
His "sure" was a 'sure...get me chick fil a'.
I felt terrible as you can imagine.
I had him look at the text again and he could see what went wrong....
He understood and his stomach growled....
The next day when we went to get Katie I told her the story and asked her if dad's 'sure' meant...
no thanks or yes.
She thought his 'sure' meant yes.
So....what would you have thought?
Get him some...
or don't get him some?
btw...Patrick is not a big Chick fil A fan like I am. He can usually take or leave it.
but then...we didn't have much in the house to eat....
I'm looking forward to hearing how you would have responded.
