We entered the waiting room to find a woman sitting and reading and a couple watching Everybody Loves Raymond on the TV.
Now I have seen the show plenty of times before but not something my daughter watches.
My daughter proceeded to play with her ipod and I was reading something I had in my pocketbook.
Then on the TV the two main characters started to talk about that 3 little word that married couples sometimes talk about.
I was cringing and flinching.
What would you have done?
I had a couple of options:
I could of done nothing and prayed my daughter was momentarily hard of hearing.
I could of asked the couple if we could have changed the channel, a little worried that they would of been upset.
I could of asked the office manager if we could wait in the back (they are very nice there).
Wanna know what I did?
Nothing- I am embarrassed to say- I did nothing.
I was too worried the couple would be upset- I didn't want to make a scene and ask the office manager- so I did nothing.
Then I just hoped it would be over quickly and of course, it wasn't because it was the premise for the whole show.
My daughter played with her ipod the whole time and did not look up- but she is not deaf.
I am pretty outgoing and usually have no problem standing up for myself- but this time I blew it.
Has something like this ever happened to you? What did you do?
