My wife & I live over an hour's drive (if done on a weekend) from my parents home which inst to far from the airport that my best friend is flying into. I told my wife i need to pick him up tomorrow, but the traffic usually sucks big time during the am weekday commute - when he arrives (at 10). So, basically assume 2 hours instead of just one to get to the airport from our house. The wife does not want to leave late tonight - avoiding the drive. Instead she wants me to go "early" in the am Thursday, and have my friend get uber or a cab - or she is not going to my dads service. unreal. Not something i need right now.

What am i supposed to tell my friend? Any thoughts?
