My spouse and I are members of the same department. He is on sabbatical. We have a child, and during his sabbatical my partner picks up our child from school in the afternoon. For a late afternoon department meeting where some important business was to be done, our chair sent an e-mail to my husband (not to me), asking if it would be possible for him to convince me to handle the childcare so that he (my spouse) could be at the meeting (rather than me).
