The Mean Mom

Just ask my 7 year old, he'll tell you. Don't believe him? Ask my 14 year old, if she still leaves you in doubt, my 17 year old can confirm it too.

Let's play a game...

It's called "What would you do".

So, Let's get started...

#1. Let's say your StupidX, quits his job cause there is a possibility that he may be laid off. Then he gets this blood clot in his leg and whatever... Should you feel sorry for him because he was supposed to start a new job and can't and he doesn't have any money and is writing you personal checks for the child support, and according to his mom, "Money sure is tight over there."?

#2. How long would you wait to spring on him that you got a bill from the Dr's office when your eldest had what you thought was strep throat to tell him that his portion, that he thinks he doesn't have to pay, is $58.76?

#3. Would you tell him now that the baseball tournament for your son's little league will most likely be on Father's day weekend, and that he MUST be there?

#4. What would you do if he told you that he wouldn't be there for the tournament?

#5. If the things that he does, (like not put a patron ad in the program for the dance recital for the girls, not even get them the card, and little stuffed animal that you have gotten them for the last 5 years) hurts your extremely sensitive and emotional 13 yo, daughter, would try to make excuses for him to cover up his stupidity, to ease the pain, or would you let him be the jerk he is without trying to make her feel better?

Ok...

Now it's your turn... You get to tell me what you would do... Cause, quite frankly, I really want to know.

    The number one rule to remember is that HIS problems are not YOUR problems. He has an obligation to take care of HIS children. If it helps, think of it like a car payment. People have an obligation to make those payments too and the bank doesn't care if you were dumb enough to quit your job.

    Tell him like it is Karen. He's a grown man, he needs to understand his impact on his children as well as live up to his responsibilities. Jerk.

    #1 - No, I would not feel sorry for him.

    #2 - I would tell him the next time I see him about his part of the bill.

    #3 - Yes, I would tell him about the tournament and leave it up to him. No reminders.

    #4 - If he wouldn't be there, oh well. If he said your son wouldn't be there, I would raise a ruckus.

    #5 - He already is a jerk, they are seeing that. I would comfort her but not make excuses for him.

    Ugh ugh ugh.

    Dont know the entire situation but glad you left his winey butt! He needs to grow and take responsibility for his actions and learn what "consequences" are!

    Be strong!
