DOH!  Posted: 2:03 PM, October 6th (Sunday)

It truly baffles me that I was married to such an idiot. I can only conclude that perhaps I too used to be a supreme fool but somehow managed to break through to intellectual englightenment.

This idiot texts me today:

When and where is our court date. I can't find the paper...

What? The? Fuck?

Responses I've toyed around with sending:

I would check with the lawyer you were having draw up the countersuit, surely he/she knows.

OR

Actually, I misplaced my paper, too. I also fired my lawyer, so I can't check with her. Gosh, if you find your paper, would you let me know the date and place?

OR

Give me back my dog.

Ok, I'm going crickets here. I can't fathom why he would think the person he threatened to countersue for thousands of dollars would be helpful to him.

Crickets. He fired you, remember? I'm amazed he can wipe his own ass, this guy.

Crickets

Is it on the Google calendar? We all know how much he checks it.

Anyway, it's not your job to keep track of dates and times. He can ask "what's her name." She's in charge of keeping track of things for him now.

If you really feel the need to respond - "I don't know. I can't find my paper, either. Please let me know when you locate yours."

Sheesh! How irresponsible of him. Do you think this could be a veiled attempt to reach out to you and get a conversation started on the topic of the suit? Perhaps to "friend" you into dropping it? I agree with other posters - crickets is most likely your best response. Anything else runs the risk of giving him leverage in one way or another.

I imagine that you, like me, are probably glad that your body cells constantly regenerate. That way every part of our bodies that ever touched our stupid/perverted ex spouse are new again, clean & uncontaminated by their collective lunacy.

What about a response along the lines of

"If you paid what you owed we wouldn't need a court date to enforce you doing the right thing, nor would you have the pesky requirement to remember a date.

Ps- give me the dog back douche"

I don't really advocate a response but he sure makes it easy to want to get a jab in

Although its not really a sport with him, at least not a fair one

was he always that big of an idiot?
probably so... I think both your ex and mine were spared all the organization/paperwork during M because their organized and responsible wives did it.

now they just look like those bumbling idiot villains in an after-school Disney special

wow.

How about, I'll tell you the date, if you give me my dog back.

I called up my friend to give him this latest ex-shat gem. We had a good laugh over it and then my friend, funny guy that he is, just texted me this:

I'm gonna take you to the cleaners bitch!! Oh by the way, when is that shit happening anyway? Every time I ask my lawyer, he just looks at me and laughs...asshole.

And that pretty much sums it up, doesn't it?

tesla, I have to admit I get a smile on my face every time I come into D/S and see that you've posted a new quote from the brainless wonder.

And I vote for #3, in response to every single text he sends, ever. Every.single.time. Eventually you could abbreviate it to GMBMD, just to make it extra easy for yourself. And because I cannot wait for you to tell us he asked what it stood for.

I think during your marriage you were just too close to the stupidity forcefield and it disrupted your brain waves. Or maybe he was more normal because he was so close to your forcefield. After all, look what has happened since he isn't near your forcefield. By George, I think that's it.

Like I'm gonna help you with that? It's no secret fuckhead!

Too funny...

I may have you beat, though. Just yesterday, as the clock is ticking down to WW's deadline to respond to my petition and get her paperwork in:

Scene: In "our" home.

Her: "Where are last year's tax returns?"

Me: "I told you before--where all returns have been for the last ten years, in the file cabinet."

Scene shifts to us standing in front of the file cabinet.

Her: "Where?"

Me: "In front of you."

Her: "Which drawer?"

Me: "Please leave."

Hmmm....tomorrow ex-idiot is picking Teslet up for the afternoon until I'm done with practice...don't know how I'm going to handle it if he asks me point blank about when and where our court date is. I highly doubt I'm going to be able to mask my "What? The? Fuck?" attitude. Oh well. Maybe he could use a good dose of that.

But seriously. If he asks you, tell him that you don't have the information handy and you're too busy to find it.

don't know how I'm going to handle it if he asks me point blank about when and where our court date is.

My response would be, "You can find that information on the paperwork the court sent you. If you can't figure it out, I suggest you call the court and ask."

And if he protests that you could just tell him, look him dead in the eye, lower your voice half a step, and deadpan, "What do I look like, your secretary?" and then turn around and walk away.

I reckon a simple: "You don't get to ask me those kinds of questions anymore and I certainly don't have to answer them" with a silent ", fuckwit" at the end will do.

Either that or pull a face like someone has just done a big stinky fart in an elevator. That one seems to work on the sad clown.
