Is Bridge more important than.......ANYTHING!!
I seem to think so in our house!
DH plays twice a week. Pre-Covid, he'd be out of the house 2 evenings a week, for me being able to watch what I want on TV = bliss!
With lockdowns he's gone off to a spare room to play on Zoom. Things can get heated with bridge and I hear him shouting (there is much wine drinking involved) but it's not a real problem to me.
Our daughter has just secured her first proper job since graduating last year. She has suffered from anxiety, panic attacks, has been medicated but most crucially she has periods of severe insomnia. Her bedroom is directly above the kitchen where they play bridge.
DH has the first at home bridge session at our house on her second day in the new job, I suggested it might be kind to let one of the other players host, or play at the pub as they are this week?
DH says the only alternative is he hosts the following week!
She might still be stressed and tired the second week too and would rather have an early night and wander around the house in her PJs rather than be in the company of 3 strange old men?
I did suggest an early start (they are all retired or WFH) with a curfew at say 10......that didn't go down well.
AIBU on behalf of my daughter?
