WTF

Last night we went to the school, where my wife is the principal, for a band, chorus, recorder concert. my wife introduced me to her boss, the Superintendent of schools. I had cut my finger and it was bloody so I wrapped it in my hankerchif and when he stuck his hand out to shake I told him and he said 'thats ok' so we shook hands. he commented on the kids, making small talk, and asked if my son still played drums, we said yes. I added he was the next "alex Van Halen" or "John Bonham". Later on my wife told me that I embarrased her with that comment and the bloody finger so I should have said nothing and not shook his hand. My kids were a bit hyper (as kids will do when they have to be still and quiet. Their 5, could you sit still when you were 5?)
On the way home she said that we are an embarrasment to her! Yes she is embarrased by her kids, but most of all by ME. I still donot understand what was wrong about the comments I made or the fact when I told him about my finger he said 'thats ok'. What was wrong with what I did?

I don\'t think you did anything wrong. I think the issues are clearly with your wife. Don\'t make her issues yours. Your children are just being children, your wife should embrace anything they say or do as long as it\'s not hurting anyone. It\'s a pity she cannot see that.
