Ready to explode as a BM!
My exH is a dick. He always has been. This time takes the cake.
He has just returned from a 3 week overseas business trip. He was away for our daughter's birthday which really upset her. I'd told him before he went that it would. He didn't care. But what makes this trip so much worse - he told both kids he'd be bringing back "lots of gifts". DD17 got a pair of Nike pro shorts. DS15, a cap. Both are upset. I get that it's stupid material shit but why make promises that you have no intention of fulfilling? They're used to getting a key ring from the airport that's he's picked up as he comes home. Dont message them while you're out shopping with things you're looking at but eventually not buying them! Don't promise them loads of stuff and then let them down. I feel awful that I chose this person to have children with and he's in their lives because of me!
