So my kids' dad texts me yesterday and tells me he is so damn broke right now that he doesn't have enough gas money to pick up the kids for the weekend. The dude makes $1600 more a month than I do AND he only paid me a little less than half my child support last month. How come he's so broke when he shorted me money plus his income is way higher than mine? And don't get me started on his wife. She hasn't had a job in four years! Seriously either she's lazy or way too damn picky cause she should have been able to find something by now. Maybe not her most ideal job, but hell, grocery stores and restaurants are always hiring. He has the potential to have two incomes. I only have one. I'm sick of him playing the "poor me can't afford to pay child support and can't get to work cause I have no gas, blah blah blah blah blah." So now what do I have to do? I have to lend him damn gas money so he can get the kids. Unfortunately I still don't have a license otherwise I'd be driving my way down there, even though it is an hour and a half away. I have a lot of expenses this month due to my son's birthday. I shouldn't have to loan him s**t. But I'm going to. It's the only way he'll take the kids. difficult child 1 really wore me down last weekend with her crying fits and I really need a break right now. I'm just so damn mad that it should even come to this. Vent over. That is all.
