Yesterday, I left the house at 7:10am, kissed my husband goodbye cuddled next to my son, who was circled comfortably in his arms. While I know that only a few minutes later he would be up rousing the boys to ready them for a day at daycare, the fact remains that I left the house much earlier than my husband. For this reason, it irked me to no end to hear this message on the local radio station:
"Say, if he hasn't already left for work, encourage your husband this morning. Be his cheerleader as he heads out the door."
When I finally returned home last night after a session, location scouting and borrowing gear at 9:30pm, I was still bothered by it.
Tony works hard.
I work hard.
Why couldn't it have been, "If you're still at home wtih your spouse this morning, take the time to lift them up. Encourage them to face the day."? Instead, no, let's completely paint a specific picture of the man leaving the house to be praised by his wife.
What an ignorant and narrow-minded miss.
*For the first time in my memory, I actually sent a written complaint.
