We don't carry smart phones, and our plan includes a limited amount of texts.
In the years we've been on this plan, the limited amount of texting has never been a problem. I have always texted to my heart's content and never gone over.
Until this month. And boy oh boy did I go over.
After learning of this unexpected expense I was fretting and stewing at that fact that I had cost us like that.
I realized that through all my talking about it Greg had carried on with regular conversation and playing with the boys.
I commented that he didn't seem very worried about it.
"It's just money," he told me.
Touched by his kind perspective, I thanked him for being so understanding and told him I appreciated it. "A lot of men in your place would give their wives a hard time."
He told me again, "I'm not worried about it. But it is coming out of your allowance."
(P.S. Just to clarify: I don't get an allowance, and spend freely from our funds. That's what made this joke funny.)
