Prime example of why BM is an idiotSubmitted by Smomof3 on Sat, 08/11/2012 - 7:33pm
3 weeks ago SS13 left his retainer at his BMs, so I rescheduled his ortho appointment. Today I asked if he'd been wearing it, since he should have brought it home last weekend...
I call BM and ask her to look for it and explain that without the retainer, as he doesn't have all of his molars, that his teeth will move and the $3000 spend on braces will be worthless.....Oh yeah, guess I didn't mention that BM didn't pay a dime for the braces even though she agreed to pay a portion and he lived with us and she was still receiving full CS but only had my SD at her home.
his response "I don't know where it is?".
me "I thought it was at your moms?"
him "It was but now it's not, but it's not a big deal".
me "this is why the ortho Dr said not to take it away from home"
him "Mom wanted me to have it there so she could make sure I wore it"
me "do you realize that your teeth might be ruined and all of our money for braces wasted"
him "it'll be ok, I didn't mine wearing them again"
me "you don't understand, our financial situation has changed you won't be getting them. You need to find it next time your at your Moms"
him "crying.....Mom said not to tell you but Joey (BM's "wife" grandson that they have custody of because both of the wifes sons are pieces of crap) broke it so Mom threw it away. She said to just tell you I couln't find it or you'd be mad"
me to DH "Deal with this shit, I've just wasted $3000 on his teeth and she doesn't even have the decency to tell us his retainer was broken and has him lie to us about it."
DH "You can't control what happens at her house just let it go. It will just cause an issue if I call her about it.
Just so your completely aware of the whole situation...DH admittedly can't manage money to save his life and BM is constantly broke. That money for braces came out of my private savings.
