So xWS has our children at weekends and I'm due to drop them off into town at 9.30. He is due to take them to a summer social at DS' kindergarten today.
Well surprise surprise, he had texted me asking if I can have the kids instead as he is ill.
Firstly, I don't ask him to look after the kids when I'm ill and I wouldn't ever. Secondly, I can't afford to just take the time off work as I wouldn't get paid.
I'm pretty sure the real reason he wants me to take the kids to the social is because he knows that a lot of our friends will be there and he is too much of a coward to face them. This really pisses me off!
I texted him back to say no and that I couldn't afford to suddenly take time off work. I wait on at a restaurant in town and I only earn minimum wage and rely heavily on tips. At the beginning of our S I had to miss two shifts from work that were unpaid and it leaves me skint. It's ok for him as he's on a £50,000 salary!
I've reminded him that it is up to him to sort out childcare if he is ill. I also cheekily asked him if he was going to be ill next weekend when he is due to take our children to a birthday party.
I wish he would just fu(k off!!
