Found: Someone's GUBM...
...and I need you to come collect her and take her back to her life of leisure ASAP!
I have a very high stress job... In a small office where it is almost always just the 3 of us. One woman is a micromanaging nightmarish b!tch who I have just come to avoid as best I can in such a small setting. The other just started here two months ago. She is a GUBM of the highest order.
In two months she has been out more than I have on all child related BS. Raining? Kids can't walk home from the bus stop and get wet... School closed? The darlings can't be home alone. Her kids are 14 and 12. Mine are 4 and 1-1/2. Again, she missed more work in 2 months here than I have in 3-1/2 years... Keeping in mind I gave birth and took work to the hospital with me.
Things she has told me in 2 months (because once you squeeze a kid out you and all other mothers are part of a close fellowship of breeders): she never remarried but lived with a bf for years because remarriage would impact her alimony... She took this job because she applied for a special homeownership program but they require you to have a job (so she works here for 20hrs a week)... Her rent is more than my mortgage (in my area, that is unfathomable)... She drives a brand new car worth twice mine. The darlings' stepmother is always trying to insert herself and usurp GUBM's role. Dad 'chose SM over his real family'. She texts her kid's teachers constantly throughout the day and play-by-play updates me on their lives and how their dad/stepmother is to blame for everything from a scraped knee to emotional 'distress' including why her 12yr old NEEDS to cosleep with her.
It is madness. I hover over my toddlers less. I couldn't imagine my life thinking my purpose is catering to teen/tween children. Or that my IH ought support us all so I can wipe their butts, make them pb & j sandwiches and financially rape not only dad but garner sympathy from everyone around you because... GASP... You are a single mom... Doing it alllllllllll alone.
For duck's sake... You are a 40 year old woman with 2 nearly grown children... Work a FT job... Crawl out from under your divorce.
Please someone, come get this woman back to her life as a single mom, victim of divorce, giver of life so she leaves me alone.
