(This is NOT a “need answer fast” scenario!)
Occasionally, Mr. Horseshoe or I will be a little late coming home from work. No biggie. But occasionally, darker thoughts creep in and I do the whole is-he-dead-in-a-ditch-somewhere? routine until he’s safely back in my arms.
So - and let’s pray/knock on wood/hope no one here, including me, ever needs this information - let’s say he did get in an accident on the way home and gets whisked away in an ambulance. At home, the clock keeps ticking away, I keep glancing out the windows … nothing. At what point to I start doing something, and what would that something be? Start cold-calling the local hospitals? Police? Walk through the neighborhood with a flashlight, calling his name? (“Here, boy!”) Do I have to wait until cops or a hospital call ME instead?
Conversely: say I was the last one leaving my office, tripped and fell in the stairwell, and am lying unconscious. How would he be able to figure out what happened to me?
For the record, I do have an ICE number (In Case of Emergency) plugged into my cell phone. Is there anything else I can do to ensure he gets notified if I plow into a tree or something?
