Q: How long did you wait before you reported your friend as a missing person?
A: 10 minutes

Q: Do you know what my wife considers 10 minutes late?
A: 20 minutes early

Q: Guess what I know you didn’t do since you decided your friend was in mortal danger?
A: Look for them.

One of the cool things about being an adult is you’re allowed to be missing if you want. If your husband wants to stop by the local artistic dance establishment instead of coming home to listen to you talk about how he never takes you anywhere nice then he’s allowed to do that without telling you. If your wife wants to spend the weekend at her cousin’s best friend’s house becuase she’s had enough of you drinking a 12 pack of Natty Ice and slapping her around after she didn’t fix your dinner on time then she’s allowed to do that without telling you. It’s not like I can activate your friend’s implant and traingulate her position within a three foot radius. The best I would be able to do is search in places you think this person might be and…wait for it…wait for it…YOU SHOULD HAVE ALREADY LOOKED THERE. They aren’t missing. They’re late. I’m sure they’ll have a fantastic excuse for their tardiness.
