Maybe your dad thought it wasn't important enough a query to leave a message?

I think ringing your dad is a bit ott

Old Folk cannot deal with answerphones like us young 'uns. Hence the lack of messages, which would not normally be a problem except that DH is on tenterhooks for you atm.

parents have no idea of the worry they cause!

A few years ago, I crashed my mum's car. I'd taken a wrong turning and got lost, I didn't know the roads and I managed to have an almost head on with another car.

I was perfectly fine and unhurt but the car was totalled.

I had been on my way to meet dp for lunch, so I asked my mum to ring the place he was at and just leave a message saying "squonk won't be able to make it to lunch" and NOT to tell him I had been in an accident. She said she would do this.

She asked me where I was and I said I hadn't a clue, but the bloke I had hit was sorting out tow trucks and stuff so it wasn't a problem.

My bloody mother then rang dp, got someone to interrupt his meeting to say there was an urgent phone call for him, told him that I had smashed the car up, it was completely written off and I was obviously disorientated as I didn't know where I was (I was fucking LOST fgs!) and that he wasn't to worry.


anyway, YANBU at all.

(did they manage to get the dog biscuits? wink)

ditto what mrsfuffallo says - I do think YABU - why did your DH panic so much? Surely if it was you/something important you'd have tried to ring again??

I wouldn't leave a message if I was ringing someone about something like that and they didn't answer the phone.

Maybe he should have left a message.
Hearing the answerphone on Dh's phone might have scared the cr*p out of your Dad too.

if they get pissed off when people don't leave messages, then they should deffo have left a message for you.

Even if it just said "by the time you hear this we'll have sorted it, but helloooooo anyway"

Why did your husband get so upset?

WingsofaAngel Sat 13-Sep-08 23:38:53

Ok so know a bit more back ground.

Yes they should have left a message.

My Dad didn't like phones and I could have understood him not leaving a message.
