NJ husband

Postby secondhalf » Tue Apr 17, 2012 12:17 pm

What do you do when you ask your NJ a very non-threatening question and in a normal voice about a process that needs to be followed to get something from the school and the NJ doesn't respond but the NJ husband responds in an arm gesture filled and condescending manner in front of the child? I excused myself and told them I would figure it out myself.

Three options.

1) React in kind.

2) Nothing & sulk.

3) Or be a good parent, walk away with a smile & head held high (possibly shaking), journal it & hopefully have a witness when you're around the moron in the future.

The children will eventually realize who the bozo's are. And you'll be known as the calm one.

You Dad up and get the information yourself from the school, doctor, coach, dance intructor, or whomever, realizing that your life is a lot simpler the less you talk to your fat X and her moronic husband. Stop allowing her to be the gatekeeper for information you need to be a parent to your kids.

I just imagined a cellulitic mass of humanity and a lamebrain paying her fast-food bills is all. It wasn't hard to get your drift.

If you were both mature, sane adults, asking for this information from your ex would be completely reasonable.

Nothing wrong with it at all.

if..

But.. yes, get it yourself and leave her out of the loop.

So true. You have years of dealing with these people. Learn your techniques and be a role model for your kids. It will pay off in dignity, sanity, and respect.
