A Dead Car Monday Morning
So - happy Monday folks I made it through.
After a VERY busy weekend, of music and tribute to a local musician, we had to wake up to "Sd15 Backstabber is asking if I can pick her today. Her moms car is dead."
Arrrrg. The darn car. She likes it because its a flashy BMW convertible and her ex (DH -a mechanic that specialises in BMW's) can work on it cheaper than she can normally get. And because it in any way can hamper drop offs of skidd, she typically gets him to work on it or at least advise her. Its been on ongoing issue and Im letting it go...for now...
Her car wasnt "dead". The check engine light was on. There was oil. The gas was low and she has no money. That was the issue. She partied out her gas and $$ this weekend.
NOW I understand not having money. But I picked myself up and got that job, made that money, get myself out the door every monday-friday. She did nothing but kick me when I was down, so ergo my sympathy tank is on EMPTY.
So, since he was going to have to give her child support $$ anyways in a few days time, he just told her the car is fine, he will have the child support check ready.
All I could say is "too bad she wasnt nicer to us all along. We would have way more sympathy, but shes been so horrible, we have zero sympathy by now. All that time shes been a jerk and didnt have to be".
She did in fact drop kiddo off this morning. And of course it then became "battle of the shower". Because with 2 bathrooms and 3 people needing them at the same time, it becomes a race. Kiddo just has no concept. Hopefully awareness outside of herself will come, but seeing her bueprint Im very skeptical.
The weekend went awesomely well, after all the driving drma. Skiddo went off with her friend, and we left without incidence. No drama just all fun.
