Yes, I know. It's much more likely that *I* DIDN'T PAY ATTENTION and COMPLETELY FORGOT whether or not my kids are COMING HOME - on a school night, no less. After all, I do that all the time. They leave the house and I just FORGET what day to expect them to return. Maybe they'll be home for dinner. Or maybe they won't be back 'til next Tuesday. Oh, well. They'll turn up some time. Yep. That's just the kind of mom I am!
Besides, it would be COMPLETELY uncharacteristic of YOU to do a piss-poor job communicating your plans and leave someone else frustrated, wondering what your intentions are. No. NONE of your friends, family members, coworkers or life partners have EVER mentioned you having a problem with that!
So, I'm sure you're right. It MUST have been MY mistake, and not yours.
Jeez. We're not in grade school; we're almost 40! When you forget to do something, and someone calls you on it, do you REALLY think that if you just insist you did it...and if you use a sufficiently high-handed, condescending tone...that the other person will ACTUALLY be convinced THEY screwed up? Honestly.
