I point out to The Foreigner that I am under no obligation to send The Child overseas to obtain free – or paid for, depending on the conversation – medical care in The Netherlands. And I remind him that he owes about $50k in fines due to being in contempt of court. And because I’m a nice person, I tell him to have an extra-nice day, and also, please send the money for the medical bills I’ve already paid in full.
I have completely utterly had it with your attitude … You can go ahead an screw yourself. This is not a medical bill, but some voluntary thing for you did yourself. You are a complete failure in raising her.Also, you seem to pick a fight with everyone including the the poor guy that had the guts to marry you after me. Where is he? Probably run away and taken cover from your horrible temper. I suggest you go find yourself a good treatment because you have some serious psychic issues. Probably inherited that from that schizophrenic father you have …You are such a loser woman. I am very angry with you even though I should feel sorry for you. After 11 years of divorce you are still intent on extorting me with your ridiculous charges of contempt.
A couple of things are now clear to me. First, he does not actually understand the contempt citation. Second, someone has been talking to him about the current state of my life.
There’s only one person I can think of that would have.
oh jesus h, what kind of low blow is that? to throw that in your face, and then to attack you and your dad that way. what a prick. hang in there.
There was, if you can believe it, more to this letter, most of it requiring a lot of backstory explanation. The Cliff Notes version is: He has distorted every bit of our history into a story of me stealing money from him/grasping his money/him bailing me out of financial predicaments. One must leave a lot out of the story to get it to that point, starting with a young child.
Can you imagine sending your child to visit this person, in another country, for any reason? No, me either.
the guy’s a cretin. your kid is so much better off not having that role model around.

Maybe it’s just the bat-crap crazy in me…. but I believe I’d correct the grammar (well, and the spelling), and send it back to him
… with another bill.
I just love watching someone’s head explode.
Funny you should mention it, I have another bill sitting right here on my desk.
I should have time to send it shortly before Christmas.
Toby @ Plate Fodder says
I believe I’d send them out.. in small increments… daily.
It would be hilarious to send him a day-by-day update on the money owed you from the contempt citation 🙂
As for the informant, I think I know who you’re talking about, but how would SHE even know — I thought you were out of touch.
Remember, I have cousins I do talk to. Whatever she knows, it isn’t much – likely just the bare fact that a divorce was underway – but I know she knows. It went on for far too long to keep her completely in the dark.
