Have had a big blow up with DH today on the above topic.
Here's the situation.
I text messaged MIL asking if she was available to babysit for a wedding we are attending in nov.
She texted back 'yes that'll be fine' and a smily face.
All sounds rather innocent and ok right.
Well apparently MIL has since spoken to DH complaining about how rude it was of me to text her and i should have called her.
DH has now blown up at me telling me how rude and inconsiderate i am and if i want favours i need to be more gracious in my asking instead of my obvious rudeness.
I now quite upset about it as i did not text with the intention of upsetting anyone. I texted her because i knew she was playing golf as she does every monday so thought a text would be easier and she could reply when it was suitable for her.
She is definently not technology challenged, she has an iphone and very competently sends text, pictures and video's aswell as emails.
