A wife has shared how her husband decided to stay at his female co-worker’s house after a party because she was sick but it left her worried.
Writing on Mumsnet, the woman explained that her husband’s Christmas party started early and he told her that he would be home by 11 pm.
But when he failed to return, she became very concerned so she asked him whether everything was ok. He then responded to her message telling her to ‘call him ASAP.’
“My husband was on his Xmas night out tonight. Started quite early and he said he’d be home about 11pm – did and does not matter to me at all that he decided to extend it to a big night,” she wrote.
“I text at 1.50am to check all was okay, and he asked me to call him ASAP.”
Her husband explained that one of his female co-workers got so drunk that she became very ill. After she threw up and fell over, her husband decided to take her home to make sure she was safe.
“She’s now passed out on her floor, having been sick everywhere.”
The husband also told his wife that he was covered in vomit but he didn’t want to leave her as she was living alone.
“He thinks he should stay until morning, or until she wakes up at least. What would your husband do in that situation?”
Mumsnet users were left divided but many were quick to praise the husband. One person commented: “Thank goodness he’s there. Go help him if you can.”
Another said: “My husband would stay with my blessing. I would be appalled if he left a person in that state. She could die if she choked on her vomit.”
A third asked: “Why could a female colleague not have also taken her home?! Taking her to her house is a major overstep!”
