AW & WTF's

WTF's ~
My attorney is no longer with the legal services, so I have someone else. They called me yesterday while I was with my new mommy group I started so I couldn't answer. I emailed her back and she said she would call at 8:30am today. She emailed me and said sorry she can't. Then she said she would call around 5pm. It's now 9:20pm and no I'm thinking she isn't gonna call me. I'M LIVID. I need to know WTF is going on with my case since the other side got the papers a week ago and we have court in five weeks. I am going to call a supervisor tomorrow if she hasn't called me by 10am. I get it's free, but there is also something called BEING A PROFESSIONAL HUMAN BEING. I'm fucking done and at this point, want to pull one of these numbers and just go the fuck to trial. I'm DONE.


On that note, MC just called me about a half hour ago as I was getting ready to go to sleep. WTF. WHAT THE EVER LOVING FUCK don't you get about I'm not GOING TO FUCKING TALK TO YOU. If it's important email me. If it's important, leave a message. If it's important, tell the attorney you JUST HAD TO HAVE. Oh wait, you don't want to pay for him anymore...NOT MY FUCKING PROBLEM.

I am also the fuck over parents who want a nanny to COME TO THEIR HOUSE and care for their child or children PRIVATELY and pay them $4/hr or less. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? This happens SO MUCH and is one of my biggest pet peeves. Go ahead and hire someone for $200/week, working 45 hours and see what you get. I can pretty much bet my ass they won't be with your family more than 6 months. Have fun introducing your kid to someone new several times a year.

I want to take a baseball bat to my entire apartment right now I am so pissed.

AW - My sweet DD who keeps me going in this life.

The end.

Re: AW & WTF's

  • Not to be a bitch but 5 weeks is plenty of time for your attorney.  At this point in your case I wouldn't think they'd be doing a lot of discovery which obviously can take a lot more time.  I pay a shit ton for my attorney and seldom talk to him.  Usually it's his assistant I'm e-mailing back and forth with.  If I do need him for a question or something it's never a very speedy process.  There is also a lot of last minute shit going on which is seriously annoying but what can you do?  Also, they are usually in court in the mornings and early afternoons.  

    You need to take a chill pill and consider yourself lucky your case is moving forward as well as it has.  Mine has pretty much been stagnant for 17 months and, even though the judge ordered child support in January, I still haven't received shit because of all the objections his stupid attorney has filed.  Now he's going to prison, so DD and I are on our own for 1-5 more years.  So yeah, it could be much worse for you.

    Excuse me? I'm not sure I understand what your point is.  And I wasn't aware this board had rules or whatever it is you're implying.

  • Oh man. If this is going to turn into "who has it worse" and "stfu and stop complaining" wars, I am out. WTF Wednesday and Fuck It Friday are meant to be sound off/clear your head/get your fuck its out posts. If I cant do that, then there is no point in posting anymore. I offer plenty enough sympathies and ears to have a fuck it vent once a week.

  • Also, five weeks is just enough time to get a mental health eval, a physical, & gather all of his retirement ppw, submit to his atty, & then submit to my atty to review and prep for the trial. Those take time. Usually you cant get that shit done overnight or even in a week. For me, I know I have to wait 2-3 weeks to see a specialist. The VA is even worse.

    I'm sorry you are in a fucked situation also.

    That was fun. Haha

    Here's my aw:
    H decided the dogs (that were out by the fence) should see her belly.

  • Lol @ H. She's hilarious. Dd stands at the edge of our deck with the dog's stick when the dogs are outside aNd yells as loud and demanding as she can, "Goooggy!" They ignore her.
  • Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to report you. :)

  • Also, your post about pain games was so stupid I just wanted you to clarify.  Who said anything about pain?  You have no idea what anyone's "pain" has been like on this board.  You have no clue what my "pain" has been like or the shit I've gone through because I don't post whiny or enraged posts here every other day about the same thing.   Just like I have no clue the extent of how bad anyone else's situations here may be.  I only pointed out MY situation because it's mine but could have easily used several other peoples on this board. 

    I am normally sympathetic to the board's participants.  I do, however, grow concerned for someone's child when they write such angry violent posts for all to see and then goes on to complain again about how they can't find the PERFECT job so let's just sit around worrying about how we'll support the kid and maybe go buy a fancy new stroller while we're at it.  Go flip burgers or apply to a temp service until that PERFECT job comes along.  Stop acting like a spoiled entitled child and take care of your kid.  We come here for support unless the support offered is the truth we don't want to hear.  Then we get mad and leave or have our little friends throw out insults on our behalf. Just my two cents and I certainly don't give a damn if you want to call me names because you don't agree with MY OPINION.  Just curious if your high school behavior really makes you feel better about yourself?
  • My behavior was in no way bad especially considering most of the posts on the rest of these boards. I don't have time to continue arguing with an idiot on the internet. I'm sure you'll continue to remain clueless but have a splendid life anyway.
  • @Lurchbaby you did violate tos by calling tig a see you next tuesday. NOT COOL. Im now paging @becwheat because i think she needs to be the voice of reason that tells everyone to calm thefuck down.

    @Eg214 and @lurchbaby these boards are not your therapist/best friend/support group. Theyre advetising.
  • @Lurchbaby i dont have the data to sit here and hash out the technicalities. And ive been awol due to lack of data so i dont know whats been going on but.


    Tig wasnt acting like a see you next tuesday not was she playing the pain games she was giving perspective.
  • I'm glad to see all this went nanners. I don't understand the perfect job, flip burgers, new fancy stroller comment. I hope that wasn't directed at me. If flipping burgers would provide me an income and allow me to pay for child care, I would do it in a heartbeat. Unfortunately most jobs will not pay for childcare AND allow me to live. I'm not going to work to be homeless.

    I too am confused by all of this. I've been on this board about a year and never had this issue before. Sure people have given me the "get your big girl panties on and deal" a few times which is NBD. But to all out say to STFU (not you Minnesota) and stop a bit much. If you knew me in real life you'd know I don't have an anger problem at all. My DD is happy as a clam and has never seen me mad, which is the life I try super hard to create for her. It is very easy to get your frustration out online. That's like saying people who box or go to the gym and work out on the bag are all angry people.
