One of the other DWs brought up a great topic (thanks, Shayna!) in the comments on my last post.
So, I want to know how many of you has this happened to?
Me: "My day was terrible, hon, my boss yelled at me, I cried, I messed up a big report and blah blah blah..."
Hubs: "Wow, that sounds awful"
Me: "Yeah, it was. Tell me how was YOUR day?"
Hubs: "I had a two patients die on me and then one of the other docs called in sick and I had to skip lunch and work 3 hours over unpaid.."
Talk about disproportional bad days. I don't work in the medical world or really anything like it, so my bad days will never be proportionately bad as HIS bad days. Which, hey, that's ok because it gives me perspective and makes me grateful, but at the same time...it kind of makes me feel just an eensy weensy bit smaller inside. Not even sure if that makes sense.
This story is always one to pull out when you're at one of those awkward dinner parties with people that ask you with stars in their eyes "so what's it really like to be a doctor's wife?"
