So some time ago DH called from work and said that it was announced that he's getting a huge promotion, towards which he had been working for years! He was delighted and so was i! Five minutes later my dear friend, (who was my maid of honour at my wedding and whose husband was my DH's best man), called and said that they were inviting us for dinner on Saturday night. I couldn't contain myself from happiness and went ahead and told her about the promotion, even though DH had suggested that we kept it a secret until he had seen all the signatures and it was official. In the mean time due to insignificant technicalities DH's promotion was delayed for two weeks. That Saturday night we arrived at our friends' house and the moment we entered: "SURPRIIIIISE"!!! They had turned the "Saturday night dinner" to "Promotion celebration party" and they had invited common friends to celebrate and bought gifts for DH etc. In the mean time DH is standing there completely astonished, trying to figure out what's happening and feeling sooooo bad.
I literally wanted to die!
Thank God not long afterwards the promotion became official but remembering that incident still gives me the shivers until today
Mortifying!!! But thank goodness the promotion eventually happened for him!
