Meanwhile, back at the shithead...

Here's an interesting exchange:

SUPERFIANCEE: And who's stepped up, to support YOUR children, while due only to your pigheaded, monumentally selfish decisions we've gotten deeper and deeper into a financial hole and you haven't done a thing to help them or offered an extra cent for their upkeep? The man you and your girlfriend spend all your time insulting, that's who.

BIG CHIEF GINORMOUS FATHEAD: Well... well... that doesn't make me respect him any more.

Solipsism is officially disproved as a theory. I couldn't possibly make stuff like this up.

I see the weekend's shaping up nicely. :/

Yeah, well, he wouldn't say that to me. He said it to T., yesterday, while blustering in our front yard about how it isn't fair and he can't support his kids if he has to give her that much money and she's stealing from him and it's only right if she gives him some of the court awarded amount back. Because he has a house payment, and a car payment, and he has to buy groceries for the kids for a whole week when he has them.

Of course, as T. points out, had the court handed down a decree resulting in us getting, say, half as much as the legal formulas require, and T. had gone to him and asked him if he could do any better, since she really didn't think she and the kids could make it on just the court ordered amount, he would laugh in her face.

For all that he's insisting NOW (having been soundly slapped by Higher Authorities He Cannot Argue With) that we could have avoided all this by coming to him in the first place and just asking, the simple fact is, T. has asked him, over and over, on numerous occasions, for any number of very reasonable concessions, always for the good of the kids. And he has always, always, always refused -- not simply saying 'no', but 'never, under no circumstances, there is no way, he will NEVER agree to that'.

And now, after forcing this whole thing into extended legal proceedings, refusing to give an inch or help out with anything, he comes crawling and blubbering and pissing and moaning about how it was all unnecessary, all she had to do was ask, and the court order is unfair, and he doesn't see how he's going to be able to comply with it, and T. has to do something to help him, she has to make some kind of concession.

Sorry, I'm going on and on and on.

You know, I honestly don't give a shit that he doesn't respect me. That's fine. The Association of People Who Have No Respect For Highlander should form their own lobby in Washington; they are probably sizeable enough to merit at least one seat in the House of Representatives. I don't care; I have no respect for him, either, so having it be mutual is simply more comfortable.

But the lack of respect with which he treats the mother of his children, without whom he would still be putting clay in bags in a fucking hobby shop somewhere and spending all his extra money on dope while living in a hovel with five other guys who all look like refugees from FABULOUS FURRY FREAK BROS. comics... that pisses me off.

Don't hold back! ;)

Yeah, it's all as has been laid out again and again during the process and in the latest Flashback.

Now that the decision's been handed down it's at the stage where contact between the former couple should be kept to a minimum... sadly a very difficult thing to do when the kids are going back and forth every few weeks.

Expect the groans and rattling of chains to get louder as the holidays approach.

I'm mostly amazed at his attorney being so incompetent as to not prepare him for what was a nearly certain conclusion to taking this down the full legal path.

Good luck to the five of you!

I have nothing to add to this except I'm sorry you all are being put through it.

The "groans and rattling of chains" referring to the Big Chief's lamentations, of course. (Probably not a clarification that was needed, but better to be safe.)
