Daisy, that sucks for that guy. Far more people are married than not married where I work. And those that aren't married completely understand about getting spousal approval before committing to anything. And then they understand that plans may change as family stuff comes up.

Everyone knows if I get asked to do something away from work the first thing I'll say is, "lemme get back to you after I check with my wife to see if that's cool with her."
