I think I've figured out at least part of Nichole and b/f's drama. The girl has just got to have the last word no matter what. easy child is also this way to the extreme. A trait both girls seemed to have inherited from my mother. (not a good one either) Seems b/f just ignored Nichole o/l so she called him up. He wanted to still ignore her or to just agree so she'd leave him alone. True, it started out she just wanted to talk to him to see why he was ignoring her, but of course it had to develop into more. She just came and asked if I'd drive her over to b/f's house. I told her no, she could wait to fight with him til morning. It's almost 10pm here for pete's sake. It can't wait til morning, of course. I said fine you can walk. husband comes home from taking Travis to work and Nichole tries to rope him into a ride. husband is NOT happy with me because I wouldn't let him take her over. Before Nichole walked out the door I told her NOT to bring the fight back over here and put it into my face or else. I'm finished with the drama here. Bottom line, it's dangerous for Nichole to walk to b/f's house. She has to walk thru a fairly bad neighborhood to get to his home in a upper middle class neighborhood. But darn it to heck, I just can't contribute to the drama anymore. And if I gave her a ride, that's what I'm doing. I can't stop her from going, she's 18. Frankly, I'm surprised his parents put up with it. I'm waiting for the day they call the police on her. That'll be a wake up call for Nichole, cuz Mom won't be making a trip to the jail. Still, I'll be sitting here worrying about if she made it til she comes home when I have to get up at 5 am to pick up Travis. Why couldn't I just get extremely lucky and they'd break it off for real???
