Okay, just venting, procrastinating getting ready to go out with a bunch of neighborhood soccer moms...one of which is in the same hell as me but none of these happily marrieds know about the hell either of us is in so it will all be hush hush...anyway


Here is the note I got from Mr. Integrity when I asked him for the second time to either switch weekends with me, or I offered him first right refusal as I have to get a sitter 2x this weekend. This is from the ahole who said his main priority is the kids and he wants more time....

AND WHY DOES HE TALK LIKE SUCH AN ARROGANT AHOLE. This note could have been one line, "i will get back to you about switching weekends" without any of his added perceptions and opinions and bullshit about stuff he wants me keep saying so someone may start to believe it...just sharing what an ahole he is AHHHHH want to punch him in the pie hole

Dear Sleepless-
I wanted to let you know that I continue to look at the schedule to accommodate your desire to change our weekend parenting time to alternate weekends. As I have said before, it's important to get on a structured, fixed schedule so that the girls have the appropriate expectations for when they are with each of us. While I am always open and flexible to discussing changes to meet your needs and as we graduate to my request for equal parenting time, constant change to schedule causes unnecessary confusion for DD1 and DD2.

There are implications to changing the current, agreed schedule (holidays, mothers day, fathers day, birthdays, work events, existing scheduled personal time). That said, I am sure we can come to an agreement on amending the schedule to meet your requirement to be in alignment with your friend's schedule as you stated in settlement conference.

Also, as I mentioned in my earlier note and again in settlement conference, I have a training class this weekend that precludes my ability to look deeply at the schedule. I will look at it next week and will get back to you with suggested changes that addresses your request.

Thank you,

WTF! Did he swallow a thesaurus? Or does he think he's Charles Dickens and getting paid by the word?

gypsybird87 posted 2/28/2014 17:42 PM

OMG. He really thinks he's all that, doesn't he? It was aggravating just to read, so I can only imagine what it's like for you.

I'd send back: "k".

Next time you make a request you set a deadline. "If you do not exercise your FRR BY DATE TIME I will make other arrangements without further notice."

The sad clown used to pull this shit too until I broke that button he was pressing by setting a deadline. He's a good doggy now and does the same to me. I prefer it this way as it reduces the idle chit-chat.

They all pull this Father of The Year crap - ironic how "for the children" becomes oh, so important to them after blowing their lives up. As in an M it's all bullshit words - no action behind them. Whatevs dude. You can pretend all you want. We both know what you are and my kids will too someday.

this reads to me as if it's written for a child custody audience. Especially where he says "as we graduate to my request for equal parenting time."

He is creating a "record" of being accommodating, incredibly worried about the girls' stability, and excruciatingly "reasonable"

Unfortunately for him, he sounds like a complete douche.

Mirror the response with:

Dear Arrogant A-hole,
Thank you so much for your thought provoking reply. It's obvious that your in depth analysis of the matter concerning a structured schedule has been given much of your attention.

I assure you that I, too, would be open and flexible to discuss any changes you may ever want to an amended parenting period. It is, after all, to the benefit of all involved that any changes made to accommodate our individual schedules result in the time spent with the children to be of the utmost quality.

Since your training class this weekend will preclude your ability to find 2 minutes to review the schedule, then of course you can address solutions or alternatives to my request next week.

Well thank you Mr. Helper. Waiting until next week to look at your schedule is really going to help out a lot THIS WEEKEND!!!

While I am always open and flexible to discussing changes to meet your needs and as we graduate to my request for equal parenting time, constant change to schedule causes unnecessary confusion for DD1 and DD2.

If you guys don't yet have a placement schedule that has been signed by a judge....you really need to mind your p's and q's here because, even though it is pretentious as hell, he is using language directed towards a *decider* and he seems to be trying to *set you up*.

^^My first thought too! After I got beyond the bile:

Be sure to save this email and send it back to him whenever he asks for a change!

Heal&Deal posted 2/28/2014 18:44 PM

He is creating a record for the court.

He is taking control by telling you to wait until he gets around to responding. Unless he is training for the fucking Olympic games, the dumbass has time.

He is tying his equal time request to your request. They tend to want equal time to minimize child support. Money is generally the name of the game, sad as it may be.

Thank him for his response and request a final response to your initial inquiry by COB 05 Mar 14. His timely response will allow adequate time to prep the girls for any future changes to their schedule.

What a fucktard.

This would be my reaction. Kudos to you for not murdering him.

^^^ This. I agree, I also thought he is creating somekind of record for the court if needed while I was reading it..

Tripletrouble posted 2/28/2014 19:00 PM

What a tool. It sounds like he paid his lawyer to write it. Maybe he googled "how to sound like a huge douche" or "how to sound concerned about the kids I nuked when I cheated on their mother with a skank I found on the Internet" - because if so he nailed it.

Cookie7088 posted 2/28/2014 19:07 PM

And that's a sign of a man that no one listens to....he feels the need to over-speak himself, cause this is one of his only opportunities to do so....

I call it the "Professor complex."

Dreamboat posted 2/28/2014 19:19 PM

After reading that, I would send back "Never mind, I've got it covered." and just get a baby sitter.

PhantomLimb posted 2/28/2014 19:37 PM

My X does this. It could be an email about the weather and it would sound like it belongs in the Declaration of Independence.

It's their NPD and a way for them to assert superiority and remain detached. Like a dog peeing on your leg, without the warmth and feeling.

I loved one2ndchance's reply. It's a little passive aggressive, but it gets the point that he's a d-bag across loud and clear.

ThisHell posted 2/28/2014 19:50 PM

Holy shit, lol

First of all, that's fucking hilarious. As were all the responses. Pompous asshole, I swear. But I totally agree, he's setting you up...

In the future, give a deadline on when he should get back to you to use his first right of refusal. Like, saying something along the line of, I have immovable obligations this particular weekend and want to extend the offer of additional time with the children or option to switch weekends....please let me know by such and such date if you this works for you. If I don't hear back by such and such date, I will make other arrangements for care for the children.


God dang, what an idiot. And right?! Who talks like that?

PaperRing posted 2/28/2014 20:32 PM

Oh My God, I laughed so hard at this thread that I had to go change my pants. It's really really funny and also really scary because I know the hostility there is behind those words. So much hostility and the poor kids have to live it.

tryingagain74 posted 2/28/2014 20:34 PM

Umm...


Did my XWH write that?


It's yet another chapter in the XWS Handbook: How To Sound Like An Overeducated Douchebag Who Really Cares About The Children So That You Can Talk Down To and Feel Superior To Your Ex.

Seriously. It's truly another part of their devolution from person to troglodyte as they continually seek to bolster their images with themselves and with anyone they know (or a court of law for that matter).

I love how your ex has to look "deeply" at the schedule. Is the schedule embedded in a holy text? Does it reflect the existentialist school of thought? Ay-yi-yi. Deeply.

It would have been nice if he had thought more deeply about, oh, I don't know, YOUR WEDDING VOWS!?!?

But yeah, most of them start spouting these arrogant, asshole missives. Sorry to say that it seems to be an integral part of the asshat XWS experience.
