And So It Goes

This has nothing to do with this blog post.

J's son, precious tyke that he is, is now going through a marriage split. Dunno why really, he's adorable.

Anyway... Now he has this girl that he wants to go visit who lives a good 4 hours away from here. He is demanding that his dad and/or mom take him (he doesn't drive). Understandably his parents are balking at this. After all, if you want to act like an ass, get married when you have no place to live, go through a divorce because you couldn't be arsed to find a place to live, and now you want to commit adultery with another girl who lives across the state from you, of COURSE we'll drive you there, anything you want honey really.. no no, REALLY.

He's a little upset that they aren't cooperating. I'd be upset if they did. His dad told him that getting him laid is not his problem or concern. I cheered.

I've been trying to impress upon this impressionable child that if he is going to expect to be able to do adult things, then he should expect to be accountable and responsible for doing those adult things.  He doesn't get it and seems to think I am only nagging him.  (It took me 3 times of yelling at him to get him to half-assedly clean the bathroom that only he uses).  He says his mom is a bitch because she won't drive him there.  I say good on ya bitch mom for refusing.

But.. but... and there is always a but.... having the house to ourselves for a week sounds like heaven.

Its a conundrum.

OMG. Divorcing already. I just can't believe THAT didn't work out!

And what is the deal with the no cleaning. Honestly. How hard is it to pick up after yourself.

Keep after him and make sure J is on him like white on rice, yo!

Where does he meet these girls? Online?

I stay on him like white on rice. I'm feeling like the wicked stepmother these days actually... but the alternative is to grin and bear it and clean up after his happily doing nothing ass.

I don't know where he meets them. He just comes in and announces that he is going to go see his girlfriend and GUESS WHAT DAD, YOU'RE DRIVING ME are you lucky.

Wow - wonder how long it would take her to figure out what a prize he is? You might not get the whole week.

Deb said...

Ugh.. thanks Lilli.

If that turns out to be the case you will definitely read about it here. lol

Poor you!
I hope he's gone by the time I come swimming!

So drive him, drop him off, and leave.
Let him be her problem.

He took the train. Got there on his own and the house has been nicely quiet this week.
