I have had some embarrassing moments, but none like a friend of mine did.
It is an all time classic and here's how it happened.
One night some years back I had just gotten off of work and a friend of mine (Tony) called me and said it was going to be guys night out. He asked if
I wanted to come out with the group and I said, heck yes.
So at about 8pm they picked me up and all 7 of us headed out, in a mini-van.
So my friend Tony calls his wife or actually his mother-in-laws house, where his spouse was at, to let his wife know that he would be coming home a
bit late, she wasn't there so he got the answering machine, then left a message.
I remember the call it was typical, " Hey hon, I just picked up John and the rest of the guys, I won't be back until maybe 2am or so, don't wait
up, love you." Bye
Tony's mother-in-law was a piece of work, always talking down to him, treating him like he was not good enough for her daughter, and poor Tony never
spoke his peace or spoke up period, but tonight he started venting to us like never before.
His words were extremely colorful, it went something like this.
"You know my B##ch of a mother-in-law won't let up. I am sick and tired of her F#t A## talking down to me and about me when I am not around. I
work hard, am a great provider, loving father, have always been respectful to my wife's family, but the $@#$ won't lay off. She always has to have
the last word or somehow embarrass me. I have asked my wife to deal with the issue, by she never speaks up or stands up for me.
You know what she did last week at Christmas? I just added an addition on the house with a family room and 2 bedrooms above. I did this in between
all the other construction jobs I have going on, so now we have a 4 bedroom house that I am proud of because it is completely paid for. Anyhow, the
Bi##h has the nuts, to take me aside, and to tell me that if I needed more money for a bigger addition I should have come to ask them for more
Tony is almost screaming at this point. And telling us that this is the end of it and he was going to confront his mother-in-law, but we all knew he
was just venting and it would never happen. Tony was a stand up guy and just needed us to vent to.
The conversation went on for about another 20 minutes of so, well until I got a cell phone call from Tony's wife. She said to me in a crying voice,
"is Tony there John? I said sure hang on, is everything alright?" She said, "yes I just need to speak to him now. Ok, hang on here he is."
"Tony, it's your wife"
Tony look puzzled and wondered why she called my cell. "Hey Hon, is everything alright?" Silence was on the phone, she said "yes, well actually
no. You know when you called to leave me a message at my moms?"
Tony answered, "Yes hon, why?"
She said, "well you never hit the end button on your cell phone and my parents answering machine was on the whole time, everyone heard
I don't think I ever saw someone turn white and then green before, but that night Tony did.
