I get super tired of dealing with idiot parenting. Stretch has yet to "admit" he is not working. He has "offered" to let the boys hang out last week while I worked the teacher workdays. Um, yeah, no thanks. The boys are independent and prefer their own house and schedule. Was I supposed to ask, "Don't you have to work?"
He has been without a vehicle other than OW's and told the boys his work truck was "in the shop." Am I supposed to ASK??
He wanted DS to come practice soccer before tryouts on Wednesday. He had this brilliant idea on SATURDAY. DS was at a birthday party and had other plans the rest of the weekend. DS said "maybe Monday after school?"
Today, it is Monday. First day of school. After school, DS is tired, has homework, it is hot and he has no interest in going to kick a soccer ball around with his dad. He calls to cancel.
Cue passive aggressive self centered bullshit. When are tryouts? Oh, yeah, well if you don't want to practice....
No question about the first day. About his teachers or his friends. Or anything about DS!! It is all about Dad's fucking hurt feelings. Dad isn't being allowed to be "imparter of wisdom and athletic knowledge and ability." DAD isn't going to get credit if DS makes the school team.
And THEN... stupid wanker calls back. Did he remember it was the first day of school and DS might have something to share? oh, NO. Of course not. He had some thinly veiled since you won't let me help you I will give you advice so just maybe you won't fail... "if you're not going to practice, then you NEED to do lunges tonight. And tomorrow. And Wednesday morning before school."
Right you stupid fuck. You never ever played soccer. Ever. You don't know the rules and to watch you coach is laughable. You haven't had a winning season with DS not once. But he is going to take the gospel of soccer tips from you! And begin an exercise he hasn't been given proper form for, or been doing for the last 3 months. He's going to tax the muscles repeatedly and show up for tryouts on Wednesday with what? A pulled hamstring?? Yea, thanks for the advice.
I bet he wants a "good job showing up for tryout preparations".... 48 hours before tryouts!! If you were really invested in skill building you'd have done it ALL fucking SUMMER long!! Johnny come lately. Probably busy blaming me right now for interfering.
How about ringing in with the judgmental downright negative bullshit right before the big day? Way to cast doubt and disbelief on your son. I heard the criticism. I heard the chastisement... and it wasn't me who has to show up in front of my adolescent peers on Wednesday afternoon after school!!
I spent all summer convincing DS to try. To TRYout. He KNOWS he isn't the fastest kid out there. He doubts his ability to compete already. He damn sure doesn't need DAD all pissy because he won't come play, telling him he will fail.
GAH!! I swear the man could star in his own show on how NOT to parent.
Ok, thanks for listening.
