In life, there may be times when unexpected news requires you to think on your feet and take appropriate action. For instance, if you are a husband and just found out your wife is going into labour, you must get her to the hospital as soon as possible.

It seems like a reasonable reaction to have in this specific scenario, right? Well, the spouse of this X user was much more laid back when his wife told him she was about to give birth. Let’s see what the Twitterverse had to say about this hilarious story!

This user was pregnant and woke her husband in the middle of the night to notify him that her water had broken. He understandably might have panicked and insisted they go to the hospital immediately, but instead, he requested to go back to sleep! Surely this solution might be more plausible for some mild stomach pain that doesn’t involve babies coming into the world!

As a fitting response, you can only assume that the comments were full of laughter. The well-known Mido Mashakel scene was even provided as a reply. That famous meme is often used to poke fun at people who put off doing important things until the following day, and it fits this story perfectly!

One of the responses praised the X user’s husband’s strength of mind, describing him as “an idea” and claiming that “ideas are bulletproof.” While the movie V for Vendetta has similar lines about ideas, this replier said it much better in Arabic!

Another mother wrote in to relate her experience of giving birth in the comments. She felt the baby’s final kicks as she drifted off to sleep and urged herself to ignore the sensation, hoping it was a false alarm. We agree that keeping one’s cool is usually the best way to act, but this degree of calmness is just remarkable!
