ya know, you should really stop....you really should.
I am a married women....I have stayed married for the past three years of so (since I hurt myself and can't work) by simply informing my husband that
if he leaves, he will not come back, and he will not have any say in the near future as to just what decisions I make, so if he wants a say in his
kid's life, well, he had either better take the kids with him, or keep the family intact. My position is that hey, I can't even promise that I will
be able to walk and get around in a few years, and couldn't earn enough to meet half their needs when I could....
his position is that hey, if he moves, the great god the government will step in and take care of
yes, the women I mentioned, I grew up with her, we were best freinds at one time. What, are you trying to imply that such things don't go on in our
world? ohh, ya.....that's because we are acting like men!!!
HEY, ALL FRIEND WAS BEING WAS A MOTHER, the kids needed food, the husband spent his money elsewhere, so she got a job so they would have the food,
then refused to give him her money....
And, I wasn' t happy raising my kids, wtf!!! The kids next door to us had a swingset out in their back yards, oogles and oogles of toys for their
amusements, nice brand new cloths, his and her nice sportscars for mommy and daddy, and gee, one day I overheard a really good conversation as dad
loaded his car up with his possessions as he usually did on monday morning......
"Well, I shouldn't have to work, who will take little billy here to his baseball practice, and such..."....mommy.
"Well, I shouldn't have to work....I can't, I'm going to college!!!.
Blah, Blah, Blah!!!
My husband worked, I was willing to, even willing to go without the car and just walk to the place, just couldn't find a job that would be willing to
pay what the childcare costs, let alone pay anything additional to help out the family. So, I didn't. My kid stayed home some days from school,
his asthma would kick in and we would have to wait for payday for the medicine he needed to be able to function properly in school... I overheard my
best friend's daughter telling one of the neighborhood kids (another poor child who's parent was being supported by the government) who was her
"Oh ya, they're so poor, my mom has to give them my hand me downs." thus making my kids the subject of jeers and jokes for many years to come. Oh
yes, my kids were so poor, BUT NOT POOR ENOUGH THAT THEIR PARENTS COULDN'T CLOTH AND FEED THEM!!!
Well, my husband felt that he worked all day, why should he have to come home and have to mess with kids, so, he didn't, why, the check was made out
to him, and he made sure he got what was important to him, nothing else mattered.
As soon as I could be comfortable with the childcare arrangements (the kids got old enough to be left alone if needed, at least somewhat), you bet
your danged ars I went to work and moved out of that hellhole. And, gee, ya know what, if my contribution to my employer would have been just a few
more dollars an hour, maybe I would have been at least able to go on long enough to have a diagnosis.....and gotten the treatment I needed.
But, well, so much for that one, huh....I bet even when I am old and grey, social security will be gone, and they will still be trying to take money
out of us, to give to others......I can just crawl around on the floor to just get around.....
That is who I am....
Now, just who the hell are you?
