Re: Friday Throat Punch

  • Throat punch to my ex, who has decided to run around various social media sites announcing that I am a "crazy whore". We ended our relationship almost three years ago - you think she would have better things to do with her time.
    Lesbian mommies.  Legally married in New York 5/15/12.  Me (carrier): 35, Wife: 46.
    TTC since 12/12.  Repeated BFNs with known donor from 12/12 through 9/13. 
    Donor decided he couldn't keep helping us in 10/13.
    New known donor in 11/13 - BFP first cycle!  First positive came back on 11/23/13.
    Ultrasound at 10w on 1/8/14 showed no heartbeat and stopped growth at 7w5d.  Actual miscarriage on 1/19/14.

  • @kboydbowman - what a loser.  hopefully you're able to ignore it.
    @katieisoptimistic - ((HUGS))

    TP to my boss and the legal industry in general.  Earlier this week an older male attorney insulted and belittled me, then me told that my professional opinions don't matter  -   all of this on a conference call with two other male attorneys present.  I bit my tongue, but let my boss know that this attorney only wants my boss's opinions from now on and not mine. 

    My boss's reaction?  "Unfortunately that's how it works in big law firms.  Guys like that have no respect for younger, female attorneys." 
    Me:  "ok, but I will only bite my tongue for so long. If it gets bad enough, I will demand that he speak to me with respect." 
    Boss:  "um... no.  This is just how it is.  Keep biting your tongue."

    What fucking decade is this?!!?

  • @kboydbowman Wow. She needs to move on.
    @kateisoptimistic Sorry you had to see that. ((Hugs))
    @drgn30 That is unbelievable. It's bad enough that the other attorney treated you like that, even worse that your boss said that it's ok.

    @kboydbowman Wow, she sound cray cray. Sorry you are dealing with that. 
    @Drgn30 WTF?! I would have lost it if anyone said anything like that to me! ((Hugs)) love. I am available to kick some ass if need be.

  • @katieisoptimistic - that sucks.  Sorry to hear, it still happens to me on occasion.

    @drgn30 - It's way too common in our field, I agree.  I wouldn't bother with HR unless it's really severe since it's likely only to enhance the problem and burn some bridges (personal experience on that one, trust me).  If it was an adversary that talked to me that way, I wouldn't hold my tongue.  Inside the firm though the politics can be dicey.  Good luck!!

    BFP#1 - M/C on 12/23/13

  • TP to my twin sister (again) who had the nerve to text me and ask if today would be a good day for her to announce her pregnancy on FB. Yes, the day after I found out I'm having a second miscarriage is the perfect day, thanks for asking!
