As promised, there is the unedited script of the text "argument" between my son and husband. Mr C. was going to an Order of the Arrow Call Out for Boy Scouts and did not want to wear his full Class A uniform. My husband was out of town at a business dinner.
Mom (7:05 pm) - Uniform Pants or just normal clothes
Dad (7:05 pm) - Class A Scout
Mom (7:07 pm) - Not what he wants to hear
Dad (7:07 pm) - Tough Bounce
Mom (7:08 pm) - He wants to wear gym shorts
Dad (7:08 pm) - Whatever, it is OA (Order of the Arrow)
Mom (7:09 pm) - Text Mr. C and tell him
Dad (7:09 pm) Class A Scout uniform including correct pants and shoes with a belt
Dad (7:11 pm) Class A Scout uniform including correct pants and shoes with a belt OR ELSE (as suggested by one of the other dads at the table)
Mr. C. (7:11 pm) Why. Then I have more laundry.
Dad (7:12 pm) Since when do you care about laundry
Mr. C (7:12 pm) OK , whatever, bye
Dad (7:13 pm) Love Ya
Dad to Mom (7:17 pm) I must have won. His phone went silent
Mom (7:18 pm) You did. Off to take him to church.
Isn't technology wonderful!
