Okay, so this doesn't bother my husband, but it does me, and I just need to get it off my chest.
One of my children played soccer in the spring. My kids LOVE soccer. I enjoy watching them play soccer, so it's all very symbiotic, right?
Well, this child's coach asked to have him play on his summer league team. We've never done that before, but the coach said that since my son is a good player, he'd like to have him on the team. He explained that there would be tournaments. We, right up front, explained that we would not be playing on Sundays, but we'd be more than happy to do Saturdays and all the practices that were possible--considering it's summer. He agreed. We agreed. All's happy, right?
So, the coach approaches my husband after the second practice and says, "You probably noticed that I put xxx on the B team."
The Warden: "Well, no, I hadn't noticed. I wasn't really watching." Workaholic's working in his car.
Coach: "Well, that's not because he's not a good player. Actually, .... It's because he's not going to be playing on Sundays."
And away we go....
Should I just ease up and let it go? I guess there's really not much I can do about it, and who really cares anyway. I know my son doesn't. I don't know. Would this bother you, or am I just being overly sensitive?
