The Door Chronicles, or, Key for SD Fifteen?
Im just so over this game. Sdfifteen Backstabber/Munchkin activating her mother Toxic Troll in order to get what she wants from a situation. Its super jarring for first thing in the morning on a Friday of a rough week. Today it was "The Door". Im just really mad right now. Not to mentin her going through my stuff without asking, trying to find my reindeer antlers.
Every morning when SDfifteen is with her mother, she is dropped off. Each of these mornings, because I wake up first, I turn the front porch light on and unlock the door, and sometimes test it to make sure its not stiff from cold and sticking. This morning I did the unlocking and testing as is usual. Then I hit the shower, and next thing I know I heard Husband talking with someone on the phone. Apparently SD15 had tried the door and it wouldnt open, and so she went back and told Toxic Troll her problems who then calls Husband and very snottily, tells him to open the door and "dont get mad at ME" to which Husband replied he told her "the door was definitely unlocked already". Just conflict.
Those who were around back when I first joined might recall why we dont give SD a key to our home. When Husband and Toxic Troll were in the separation "phase" Toxic Troll would take Feral Forgers house key, and she would help herself inside. drink his beer and all that and hed come home to her drunk and unable to drive to her house, so he have her sleep on the couch.
Once when Toxic Troll got mad because SDfifteen who was eleven at the time, who knocked but we had unlocked the door, had burst into our home and yelled and cussed us out, because Husband hadnt come to the door and opened it, just unlocked it. In our home. We were in the bedroom at the time. All it would have taken is for SD to knock on the door. Someone to text. She had a phone at the time.
Should we give a key to SD? She isnt mature enough to have any increased responsibility like washing pots and pans, or get a job, or take driving class...should we trust her with a house key? I feel like she activated her mother on purpose because she wants to "pressure us" to give her one, using her mother. Shes done this so many times before for different situations and Im so over it, truly. I mean, why not just text her father if she was having issues with the door?
Husband told her what her mother was like, how she was super snotty. Im glad that he called her out on that, at least.
