to think that dh should accept this lift home

(8 Posts)

We have had another 6" of snow here. Dh had to walk over 3 miles to the station, to get a train into work, but the trains aren't running (all the points are snowed up or something) and the bus services are all suspended due to the snow - so I had no idea how he was going to get home from work.

Then a neighbour rang - she is close to where he is, having just picked up her son from school, and has offered to pick dh up and give him a lift home, but he has refused as he has a meeting in half an hour.

AIBU to think that he is nuts not to accept this lift home, given that he has NO other way to get home as far as I can see?? If he is lucky, he could get a bus to the airport, which is over 5 miles away, and then walk home.

He is def BU. I have walked to my nearest office and back today (took 2 hours)due to no trains or buses and car stuck in 3 feet of snow. Some of my colleagues managed to get in early on a bus and are now stuck in town facing a very long walk home.

YANBU

But maybe it's a really important meeting that he can't cancel at short notice and he'd rather take his chance on the bus/5 mile walk thing.

Sounds like something I'd do.

DH, on the other hand, has been cycling through the snow. Apparently it's fine hmm and the roads are all cleared. We haven't had 6 inches though.

You are probably right about the meeting, spidookly. Ah well - if he ends up having a long cold walk home, that's his choice.

Depends on the importance of the meeting, if its really important then he can't just go home

How long will his walk home be? Is there a hotel or B&B close to work he could bed down in for the night?

Perhaps his employers won't allow him to miss the meeting? It may not really be his choice?

The meeting was an important one, and dh is very dedicated to his work. Luckily he managed to get a bus that dropped him about 2.5 miles from home, and he got home safely.
