Okay, so I was in shoutbox last night as most of you know, and was having a minor freakout because my husband told me he was just going to the store to get soda just before midnight, and I didn't hear anything back from him and started worrying around 2:30 AM. It was nothing major... and I am just writing this blog to vent/explain what happened.
I may have been paranoid or whatever, but he was also in his brother's car which doesn't run well, so I thought he may have broke down, but I also have a million other things running through my mind. But my main concern was that he was having car trouble and stuck somewhere.
Around 3 AM, he was still MIA, and I still hadn't heard anything, so everyone in shoutbox shared my concern and told me I should call the cops, so I did after stalling and working up the courage for 15 minutes. The operater I talked to told me that she would send someone up to talk to me. The cop she sent to me was very nice and helpful but also young and fairly new to the job. He talked to me for a bit, getting information and asking if there was anywhere else I think he would have gone, but I didn't know of anywhere. He told me the only place open at that hour was the strip club, but he doesn't really go to those anymore, so I ruled that out in my head.
Then this guy calls up his sergeant who also shows up. The sergeant noticed my husband's police officer's coat on the chair, and asked if he was a cop. I explained to him that he was, but he is still going through the academy. He then told me that he actually taught some classes up there and recognized his name. Ugh...
For like 10 minutes this guy asked me if something else had been going on, such as domestic violence, or if I was scared he would cause harm to himself, and continued to keep asking me these things no matter how many times me or my mother-in-law (who got woken up) explained to him we were just worried the car broke down or something, and that nothing was going on. This guy was SO annoying and also kinda a jerk. He looked at the information and said,"Let me get this straight, you are 20 and he is 30? Why would you marry someone so much older?" That actually pissed me off and I didn't answer... Anyways, a few minutes later he tells me that they will just keep an eye out for him, but if he didn't return by atleast 7 AM to call them back.
Well right after they left, (Just before 4 AM) My husband pulls up and comes in the house. I asked him where the hell he was, and he tells me he was down by the river just thinking... I noticed he reeks of smoke, but I just let it go. I had him call the cop who left his number for him. (My husband is pissed I called the cops btw) and both the guy and the sergeant show back up to the house and ask to talk with him outside. I didn't hear any of the conversation, but I guess the sergeant was being a real jerk to him saying if he had been out much longer he would have contacted the department he worked at, and the police academy. He also sits there and continues to ask him if he had hurt me or anything. I guess before he left he said something like,"Well you know, I could contact the academy and they would probably throw you out because you are acting irresponsible... blah blah blah." and he left.
So yeah.... that is what happened, ugh. We haven't heard anything else about it, but he goes back to academy tomorrow and I hope that guy just forgot about it and didn't call them or anything. ALL THAT just because I thought he broke down on the side of the road or something!?!?! How ridiculous! He joins the Police and now they can't help me without being suspicous of something? Dear god... -.-
/rant off :) haha
p.s. - I am also kinda pissed about him going to a strip club, but is that is just me being... conservative and insecure? I dunno! How would you feel ladies? Also guys opinions on that are welcome too!!!
