And wouldn't you know, the police officer let him go. He called my 26 year-old son to brag about it.
He said he was driving home from somewhere after drinking a lot (which he does on a regular basis) and was pulled over by a cop who smelled whiskey on his breath and said something like "I'm going to pretend I didn't smell that" and let him go without a ticket or a warning or anything. Just makes me mad.
Reminded me of when I called his company and asked for phone records (he was cheating with the company phone) and they told me they didn't care who their employees were calling and it was none of their business so they were going to turn the other cheek and I had no right to see who he was calling because the phone was not mine.
I have tried to teach my kids to do the right thing but when you have a father like this, it's like he is the kid and they are the adults. They both know how strongly I feel about this and from the time they were old enough to understand, we have had these talks. XH has been driving drunk for many years. That's why I stopped going to office parties with him. I said I would go if he could promise to have only one or two drinks or let me drive home and he said "I can't promise you that." So I stayed home. He was furious with me for that and would give me the silent treatment for weeks. Which meant he went to alone and God knows what happened with whom. I had to let it go. I just prayed he didn't kill anyone.
It makes me sick that he thinks it's funny and something to brag about.
