If you all remember I complain a little bit about ex #2 here on this blog. For several months we have not been particularly friendly to one another due to his decision to take me to court to reduce his child support and alter the marital termination agreement so that he carries the health insurance for our daughter.
I spent a lot of time and money on a lawyer in order to achieve the right to carry our daughter on my insurance. I did this because my dear ex #2 quit his association with the union he was in two weeks after our daughter was born. He did this because he is an idiot. There is a longer explanation for this act of stupidity but it still boils down to him being an idiot. He rejoined the union a year or two after we divorced and decided that he didn’t want to have to pay the insurance to me any longer (he pays no more for dependents on his insurance, he pays one flat fee whether he has one dependent or 15, which kinda explains why our national health is so messed up). Because I am the custodial parent I am responsible for her medical bills. He is supposed to reimburse me but so far that has never happened so therefore I carry the insurance so that I know it is in fact active.
He called me last week to let me know he was not going to be suing me for any of these changes. Turns out he lost his health insurance recently so our daughter is no longer the only one in this country who is over insured.
You will be pleased to know that I did not rub his nose in any of his stupidity. I sat there and held my tongue because I like it much better when we do not fight, contrary to his belief that I do. I like it when we can get along, and we do manage to get along when he isn’t dragging me to court over something as stupid as getting out of his parental obligation, I like it because he does things that are a lot of fun to write about here. I have hit the wall so to speak and having him around again gives me all sorts of fun things to post about.
He does not read my blog, he does know I blog but has never bothered to ask about what or where he might find my blog. This is precisely why I do not use names on this little blog.
So things should be getting a lot more fun around here soon since I am able, once again, to make fun of ex #2. Stay tuned.
I never trusted my ex when it came to health insurance for my kids either, but then again I got socked for the bill for it and he didn’t have to reimburse me (but then again even if he did I’d never collect it.)
Last month my ex gave me a whole $50 in child support. He told me he deposited it on Friday. Stupid me thought he actually did what he said. I paid a frickin $2 medicaid copay Tuesday. Thank goodness I happened to check my bank balance later that day, because he lied. I ran to my other bank, moved money to that account so I wouldn’t be overdrawn by $1.95 that would have cost me $40 in overdraft fees. Needless to say I left messages all over for him ranting about the overdraft. He banks at Wamu. I bank at Chase. Chase bought Wamu and he claimed that it was an electronic issue. Funny thing was that $50 he supposedly transferred that Friday, never got into my account. Ever! The deposit that was made to my account after I left the messages was a cash deposit at a Chase branch. Ummm….LIAR.
I later found out the reason he only gave me $50. For Valentines Day he took his girlfriend to Michigan. Nice he can have a romantic getaway while his children go without. He’s got his priorities!
People, especially men, are idiotic. I am actually looking forward to hearing more about this story and this guy. He sounds entertaining. At least for me. He probably isn’t entertaining for you.
Lola, I’m sorry you have to deal with so much crap from this guy. I wish I had something more to say but like me you are stuck.
Kim, he entertains me too as long as I can post about his stupidity and he doesn’t take me to court. If he had a sense of humor we probably wouldn’t have gotten divorced. Of course if he had a sense of humor he wouldn’t be an idiot.
I’m looking forward to hearing many humorous antics and shenanigans. Can you ask him to try and live up to our expectations?
Lilaphase, I don’t need to ask he will provide. I have many stories from the last few months but it seems unfair to pick on him when I am not talking to him. Now that all is okay in his little brain I can dish away again.
Oooh…Let the FUN begin! 🙂
Wow, sorry about all the ex # 2 issues!
I’m sorry about the crud you have to deal with, but the “Next Time on Maury” behavior Ex #2 shows is too train-wreckish not to watch.
Grandy, I know, I’m excited too.
Stephanie, don’t be sorry he can only annoy me and I put it to good use all the while smiling.
Gdad, he would be better suited to be on Springer since he likes to throw chairs but I know what you mean.
