After a month away from her husband, a woman lands at the airport only to find that her husband has sent his brother to pick her up instead. Feeling disappointed, she asks her brother-in-law to take her for ice cream before going home. However, when she finally arrives home, her husband is annoyed and confronts her about going for ice cream instead of coming home immediately. The post raises the question: was she wrong to want to take a little detour and enjoy some ice cream after being let down by her husband's absence?

Spouse breaks promise, sends brother instead. Disappointing homecoming.
