A Real Stand-Up Guy
You know, I was going to get on here tonight and right about my low-carb diet, but I have been side-tracked by my ex-husband/father of my child, and his stupidity. It has come that time in our son’s life when it is time for orthodontics. I could only hope it would be as simple as just straightening some teeth! Well, my son inherited his dad’s mouth, which means over-bite, over-extention, put some special appliance in there for 2 1/2 years, plus braces, and hope that fixes the issue or he has to have surgery. The cost of all this?? A sweet $4,500. And they want $1,100 of it upfront, in about 10 days when he goes to get the appliance put in.
Normally, I wouldn’t think this would be an issue, but his dad has been acting really strange the last couple of months. Not sure if it has anything to do with the fact he’s getting ready to marry for the THIRD TIME in a matter of a couple of weeks or not, but he seems to want to argue about all kinds of stupid crap. He’s all concerned that the insurance isn’t going to pay their share of the orthodontics cost. And now, when I remind him yesterday that we need to figure out how we’re coming up with $1,100 by October 10th, he tells me maybe I should go get a second opinion. Hey, jackass! Were you listening 6 months ago when I told you after the last time I took our son to the dentist that it was time for an orthodontics consultation?? I even told you the scheduled date, but then cancelled because I thought his prices were exorbitant.
Needless to say, I am furious, because he writes me tonight and tells me I can just send him the bill, like I have in the past, and he will reimburse me. Let me get this straight. I haven’t asked for a raise in child support for almost 7 years, he makes a lot more money than I do, lives in a house that costs 3 times as much as mine, which he gets a housing allowance for, doesn’t have to pay for any of his healthcare, and very rarely takes off work to take our son to any type of appointment, he expects me to come up with all of this money up front, and for me to sit around and wait for him to reimburse me? I don’t fucking think so. Maybe, you shouldn’t be having a big fucking wedding in a venue that I am sure costs at least a couple thousand just to rent a small room in. I am sure your wedding is costing more than our son’s braces are going to cost, so I think you can pony up some fucking cash up front. Don’t forget that your share of this whole bill is 78% you sorry son-of-a-bitch.
You do this to me every time. . .just when I start to trust you, and think maybe you are a stand-up guy, you turn around and start acting like an asshole. It’s no wonder I have a hard time trusting men.
