So, there's this fellow unit wife that I am kind of, sort of friends with-and I want to kill her right now.
She has 2 kids. The boy is 5 and is autistic. The girl is turning 4 and does not speak because no one ever tried with her so she followed her brother's patterns. The unit wife shows OBVIOUS preference to the boy..she allows him to beat the living crap out of his little sister and doesn't even say a word-but if the little girl does anything at all, she gets in a huge amount of trouble. The kid punched me in the stomach 3 times and no one even said a word.
So, the boy's birthday was in April. He had a huge party that took months of planning and quite a bit of money. She turned it into a FB event, inviting anyone and everyone to come celebrate.
Now, the little girl's birthday is in a week.
No FB announcement.
She claims they "can't afford it" (and she uses that term very loosely.....she always says they're broke..even if they have 4k in their account).
My first thought is SELL SOMETHING.
Seriously. They have a huge TV, an xbox, a crotch rocket that they JUST BOUGHT...(like seriously...3 days ago) 2 computers and a bunch of other stuff that could bring some money if posted on CL.
Am I overreacting? I think I would sell my wedding ring before I allowed my child's birthday to go unnoticed...especially since she just saw her big brother get a huge party.
To boot, her daddy is on a trip, so she won't even get to see him on her birthday.
Wtf is wrong with people.
