WTH? We are strictly NC other than kids/finances but lately when he sends an email he leaves out pronouns and punctuation. It reads like caveman speak. What the eff is this? What? Now we don't deserve a period or capitalization? Don't we have names? Do we not exist???

I know this is a silly minor thing. I'll let it go now. Just wanted to share.

Too funny. Maybe he pays for his email based on number of characters?

Sparkles posted 8/5/2013 15:12 PM

It's so stupid! I wish I could just do it back to him.

Bad person Send $$ no come back

Why can't you do it back? I do.

After almost three years of trying to communicate and "coparent", I see that I honestly don't exist in his world. Any real communication about the kids is started by me. If I never contacted him, he probably wouldn't notice.

The mother of his kids doesn't really have a place in his mind for much of any respect so, guess what? He gets it right back. I'm not nasty, but I could care less about the appearance of my messages.

Or... you could go acronymic on him

FT U Puk 5:00

Which either read Fucktard You Puck.

or Friday, This, You - pick up kids.

Depends on whose reading it I guess.

or you could write back AUFKM?
or FUUM and then when he writes back just say sorry - sent it to the wrong person!

Thanks for the laugh.

I think I will start responding in Haiku only...

You are such a jerk
Go Kiss my big fat buttocks
Stop e-mailing me

This is how I know it's the OW texting or emailing me instead of my XH. Except he doesn't use any caps, uses run on sentences, no punctuation, no periods and doesn't spell very well.

STBX does the same thing. As few words used as possible, and only when absolutely & legally necessary. Otherwise it's complete radio silence. He used to give me the silent treatment when we were together. Now he does it the only way left available.

My stbh does this. He doesn't punctuate unless it's work related. His excuse? "You know what I am talking about."

*rolls eyes*

Whatever, exs are so dumb.

Sparkles posted 8/5/2013 18:41 PM

My guess is that the x's who do this are most likely passive-aggressive types.

I'll show you - no period!! ha!
Take that! it's a run-on sentence! ha! ha!

I know my stbxh doesn't want any actual confrontation. I might hurt his feelings with the truth.

I once received a text from Sultan that said:

Your mailbox

That was the whole message.

WTH? HA! You're all really on a roll today...

Snorting my tea while offering extra periods...

@ the comebacks here!

If he is like mine he will try to be a button pusher by whatever is just barely inside the legal lines.
Immaturity at its finest. As if he wants a dramatic reaction to "prove" to people how unstable you are - a common tactic.
Come here and vent instead and we will all laugh at his stupidity. That's what I do.
