Well, dh is the SAHD and I always call when I get in the car to tell him I'm on my way. I do wonder how it would be though if it were him working and me staying at home. Men are so different in general than women about this.
I have to admit there were a couple of times when I went out with a friend for a "girl's night out" and didn't hear my cell phone ringing. Dh was quite put out that I hadn't checked in!
rarrely. but i usually call him to find out when he expects to be at home. he stays over twice a week so its usually a call to ask if he is coming home tonight, translate, do i have to cook you a meal tonight,
If he's going to be late then he tries to let me know. Sometimes it's not always possible, say if he gets called into a mtg at 4.30pm expecting to be done and dusted by his usual 5.30 finish time, but the mtg runs over significantly, it isn't always possible for him to excuse himself to make a call or send a text. It still drives me loopy though, by 5.45pm I'm climbing the walls, desperate for him to get home. It sounds really pathetic but even 30 mins late stresses me out...
Very rarely - and it drives me mad, especially as he doesn't understand what the big deal is. My 'favourite' occasions are when he calls me at 10pm-ish to let me know that he is having a drink. Well yes I've usually guessed by that time what he's up to!
