  • I'd probably be a little weirded out that i dont know the co-worker. ...but i dont see what's NOT appropriate about it. I mean, if they are gonna be drinking a lot i'd rather have him stay right where he is then try to find a way home.

  • If he doesn't let the wife know, then no. But if he is going to be drinkin I'd rather my husband stay where he is then drive drunk, as long as I know where he is and who is with.

  • Ah, no. A husband and father should come home. And then there's the professional boundaries. I've always been a bit of a stickler when it comes to keeping boundaries with workplace friends unless they've become true friends. And they obviously aren't true friends if you don't know them.

  • i would be pretty mad if my man stayed the night somewhere else, if he could find a ride or drive to the guys trailer then he could have probly made it home the same way, and i think that grown men are a little too old to be spending the night with friends anyway

  • It's not something MY husband would ever do.

  • I don't want to say a husband and father should have to come home because there are times when I want to go out and might have to stay at a friends house if I've had too much. I don't mean all the time but rarely. So I guess it just depends on the kind of relationship you have. If you're not comfortable with it then you need to let him know. Personally I wouldn't mind as long as he calls me and tells what's going on and comes home right away the next day. My SO has good friends from work who I don't know personally because with the kids, we never go to any get togethers with the coworkers. But I can understand how some woman whould not like that. I'm just not one of them.

  • I'd be upset if my DH did that, but my ex hubby used to do stuff like that all the time. And I know lots of guys who do that to their DW/SO. It's not unheard of, but it IS inconsiderate to you.
