Infidelity aside he is a simpleton. So many people have asked what I ever saw in him as he was/is clearly intellect deficient.
Last week I receive an idiotic missive about uniforms. The inventory hasn't changed in 2 years yet he asks me for a list of what I have. I haven't been home a lot and was going to respond tomorrow but a part of me was thinking.... This doesn't warrant a response. He ordered and paid for them as per our decree. The inventory hasn't changed for 2 years.
I realised today that he has kept all winter uniforms as she had a mufti day Friday (no uniform day) so I had to ask him to return a set.
Please return one of DD6s winter dresses, a long sleeved polo and her sport shoes by 9pm on Sunday night. This needs to occur whenever there is a non-uniform day.
Let me know when you've done it so I know to check immediately.
I'll give you her shoes, but you have everything else. I gave you a list of what I have and got no response so I assume you are sorted. I will mention that I no longer have any skorts as you have kept those after letting you know I only have 1 pair.
When I get home tomorrow I will leave them at your front door and send you an SMS.
I haven't been home much since your text so haven't had a chance to respond.
I have 2 short sleeve polos, 2 summer dresses and 2 skorts.
Each of us will be left with only 1 skort in the week that we aren't dropping her off on a Mon. ie: you will have a second one when you pick her up Mon arvo and I will be left with one for the week then I will have a second one when I pick her up Mon week.
You have all 3 winter uniforms and long sleeved Polos.
I have returned a winter uniform and long sleeve polo to you when I happen to have all 3 sets (eg mufti days or long weekends). It is common sense as well as a strategy to avoid having these useless conversations.
Please return a winter uniform and long sleeve polo to me with the sports shoes.
The winter uniform and polo cycle works the same way as the skorts. There are 3 - one on her and one at each of our homes. Both of us will only have 1 set at any given time. With the second set coming home ON DD6.
I may be missing an important factor here Ben I personally can't see it. The inventory hasn't changed in 2 years.
You retained it because I didn't respond according to a deadline you kept to yourself thereby forcing me to respond to you on an issue you already know the answer to.
Again, please stop trying to create reasons for us to communicate. We would all be better for it.
I understand all of that SBB. I'll send over a dress and a long sleeve polo, but I don't have any skorts or short sleeved polo's, so I'm a little lost there.
Should I SMS you when I am coming over with the clothes, or would you prefer something else?
I just realised there are probably only 2 skorts and 2 short sleeve polos. DD6 will be wearing one skort on Monday with a long sleeve polo and I will return a short sleeve polo to you and her black school shoes. I prefer an SMS saying “done” as you drive away.
I was way too wordy and I could have left the cease and desist request out but this bloody uniform-gate has come up in some form for the last few months and I want to shut it down. He is a shame parented shame parenter so this usually makes him STFU.
I'm a dream XW. Invisible. I have been for almost 18m now.
Lots have it much worse - I'm finding it hard to be grateful right now. All I can think is I prefer to not have to deal with you at all.
I don't enjoy parallel parenting but I hate parallel parenting with a lower muppet.
