Somebody I know recently broke a bone, and they found out that they are going to have to have surgery to fix the bone. I thought that their children would know, or should know, so I e-mailed one of their children to update them. Well, that totally backfired. The child in question, called and freaked out on them for not calling them as soon as they found out.
I don't get it. I would be concerned and call my parent and see if they were ok, not scream at them. I would want to know and would also thank the person who let me know.
What would you do if one of your parents got hurt and you weren't the first person they called?
