The secret listeners


A couple had recently had a baby, and invited the in-laws for a meal. It seems that the in-laws were quite rigid and had expectations of how a baby is to be fed, taken care of, etc. Clearly, this was too much for the new mother, and when the baby woke up during the meal, she asked her husband settle the baby in their room. The wife took the opportunity to vent to her husband about his parents – complaining about how difficult they were and expressing that she could not wait for the meal to end so the in-laws would go home. When they returned to the dining room there was complete silence – apart from the crackling of the baby monitor. The in-laws had heard everything!
