Not happy Jan

At breakfast this morning Will said, "I'm going to have to go to Italy tonight."  Just as one might say, "I think I'll have strawberry jam on my toast."  What's with that?  This comment was followed by a 5 minute rant from me on the impact of his last-minute planning on all the people around him.  But that won't be the end of it - oh no.  The flights will change several times, other legs to the trip will be added, and I won't be able to pin him down until 6 hours before departure.  Husbands, we love them dearly, but gee, this one loves to push his luck.

Which brings me to the title of this post.  There is a much loved Australian TV commercial for the Yellow Pages.  The final line in the ad has become part of the Australian vernacular.

I've never quite had this done to me but hubby did ask, a week out from having our 3rd child, would I mind (if you have to preface the sentence with that, you know the answer already dear) if he went to Spain (for work) for 2 weeks, 7 days after the baby was born?

Um ... let me think ... YES!

He promised a night nanny and all but a stranger is never the same as hubby.

Needless to say, he delegated the trip to someone else. Lucky for hubby too as the trip turned into just over 3 weeks. I really would have been saying, "Not happy, Jan!"
