Arguing with a friend
I have a semi-friend that speaks of his child in less than glowing terms. He hates her, he doesn't like her, he thinks she should've been adopted or aborted, and so on.I'd heard that he said such things to her in the past, but never directly from him.Today I heard him actually say it, though not in her presence. I said I might call CPS about it. I then got the address of the house and called to find out if he's legally abusing her.An associate of mine (I will no longer call him friend) ran and 'told' on me, and interestingly, I'm being treated as the bad guy here.So here's my question...if you truly believe someone is abusing a child, is it wrong to report it? Also, should I expect people close to the situation to treat me as an evil person for my reporting it? I don't think I should have such an expectation and I am shocked...SHOCKED...that I am being treated as such.I'm not the bad guy. The person telling his child that he hates her is.-Bart
Out from the depths I cry out to thee o' Lord.
I am losing my fucking mind.My wife, who continually shows me disrespect in anything in which I disagree with her, is giving me more fucking shit. I have *HAD* it. I am not putting up with it ANYMORE.ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!I am plenty sick and goddamned fucking well tired of her horseshit and it is going to stop NOW.-Dennis
The Bitter Potion that is Divorce
Well, the divorce is confirmed. I'm not sure what I'm going to do, where I'm going to go, or anything...
I keep realizing stupid things that really bother me. Last night, I realized I'm going to need to buy a fridge, and for some reason, that deflated me. I took a walk late last night and sat by one of the ponds by my house for a long time. I won't be able to do that much longer.No more taking the girls to the zoo whenever I want. No more having the girls come up and give me a hug when I get home. No more taking them fishing whenever I want.Divorce sucks big ones.-Bart
