I've posted about easy child's loser father, K, in the past and the saga over the car for easy child. I had planned on buying easy child a car with my tax refund, but..you know...life happens and you hit a pothole and blow out two tires...stuff like that. Anyway, K called easy child a couple of weeks ago and told him that he sold his boat so he could buy easy child a car. First of all, do you want a cookie? He's never sacrificed a thing for easy child, so I'm not broken up over the boat. Second, are you going for guilt? (The answer would be, yes. That's how K operates.) You do what you do for your kids. He shouldn't have gotten his step-daughter a car if he wasn't willing to cough it up for his son. But, here's the sad part. easy child doesn't believe his dad. He doesn't think his dad really did sell his boat - or ever would do anything like that for him. I tend to believe his dad (shocking, I know). That's a hard lie to back out of - unless he sold it for other reasons. But, easy child told me this and told me flat out he doesn't believe him. He thinks his dad is just jerking him around and trying to make him feel bad. It's pretty sad when you don't trust your parent and can't believe anything they say.
