Why won't DH stand up to BM? I don't get it.
I went along with my DH last Sunday to drop off SD to her BM after our visitation with her, and DH put the CS check into SD's overnight bag that she always brings with her. This is the ritual, and I saw DH put it in the bag just before she was dropped off. An hour later, he starts receiving texts saying, "You better pay me,it's due right now, come back to my house and give me the check" - we both know darn well she has it and it just trying to be difficult. DH texts her back and says he will give her another one at Thursday's visitation. Last night DH meets BM for his visitation and forgot to bring the checkbook with him - as soon as he gets out of the car BM starts with "Where's the check? Do you have the check? Give me the check...(over and over)" In the meantime, BM is holding SD and not letting her go as she cried for Daddy. DH says, "Are you withholding visitation from me?" BM says "Yes" (we all know this is a big no-no), so DH says, okay,I'm calling a deputy...and proceeds to call. Now BM flips out, calls him an a**hole, then says, "You're a real tough guy...a real MAN (sarcastically) and just went on and on. DH just stood there and took it...didn't say a word. I understand not wanting to cause a scene, but how many of you would actually sit there while someone berated and belittled you? Drives me crazy. Especially when DH, in any other circumstance with any other person, would have been livid and I have no doubt he would tear someone a new one if those remarks came from anybody else.
