Get Over It

Posted on | January 26, 2016 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
Last month my wife and I had planned to go on a cruise. At the last minute, our dog got very sick and needed to spend a few days at the vet.  We had no idea when our dog would be returning home and we didn’t want to leave him at the vet. On the other hand, it didn’t seem to be a life-threatening illness and certainly did not require that we both stay home.  The cruise company refused to refund our money and would not allow us to even give our tickets away to another couple.  I suggested to my wife that we draw straws so that at least one of us could go and one of us could stay at home.  She was appalled at this idea and said that we would either both go (and worry about our dog every minute) or both stay at home.  We stayed at home but I am still furious about the wasted money.  Which one of us was right?  Our dog, by the way, recovered fully and is just fine.

Dear Need:
There is no right or wrong in these things but for you to continue to be angry after the fact seems mean-spirited. Let it go or figure out what else is bothering you.
