Originally I was planning on giving you some new examples of my crazy mother-in-law but I decided against it thanks to her husband, my infamous father-in-law.
He is not that prominent in my articles as he doesn’t really shine with really weird stuff, his wife is just so much better in that matter. Sure he has his quirks but most of them are due to his OCD so I never go too much into them. However this week he really came all the way through with some really unexpected action.
My wife, as so many other people, is using WeChat 微信 to chat with her friends and also with her parents. Mostly she talks with her mother and rarely sends some messages to her father because they never have something to talk about. Furthermore he does not reply to them most of the time which caused already a lot of trouble with his wife (I might write about it sometime later as it is really hilarious).
This changed last week when our baby boy was born. As my father-in-law is still in China my wife sent him a picture of his grandson but she did not expect him to reply at all. Alright, she had some very tiny hope that he would at least send a short reply but nothing happened for a few days. Then out of nowhere she received a message from her dad, all excited she got me to check it out with her (as it is really a rare occasion for him to reply or send something) and then the big surprise:
IT WAS A DAMN ADVERTISEMENT!!!
You know, the kind of advertisement you may sometimes receive and says you should forward it to so and so many people to get something for free? Yes, he indeed send that to his daughter in reply of seeing his grandson…
I am still silently laughing about it, but don’t tell my wife!
And now not to disappoint my readers, a little picture from our baby.
