Re: Bank of Snafu

Its been a month - ex hasn't paid. I haven't said anything & the one time that DH said something I told him I wasn't involved - he needed to talk to ex himself .

Re: Bank of Snafu




Turns out DS had the $ from ex - he got it from his dad 2 weeks ago; but neglected/forgot to take it out of his bag ... until last night, when he was packing to go back to his dad's

Exclamation spine of steel or beyond "witch"



ex discovered tonight the "Bank of Snafu" is closed - and I feel/felt like a heel.

DS didn't have school today - long turkey day weekend/ex's holiday

we met tonight & after DS switched all his stuff from his dad's car to mine, ex asked if he could borrow $20 for gas - he'd paid all his bills today & his debit card wouldn't allow anything above his limit - I told him I didn't have the cash (had to repeate myself a few times) - then I left.


I left ex an hour away from the town he lives in - he had to contact someone else to help him out.

DS & I talked about it on the way home .... about the fact that, in the past, when I'd loaned his dad money for school pictures, covered the restaraunt bill, etc... I had to keep asking his dad for the $ and it made me feel bad/I'd get sick to my stomic. I was trying to do what was best for me, rather than making other people happy and myself miserible. I told DS that I felt bad right now, but I don't know how I'll feel about it a month from now.

Re: Bank of Snafu

It's a shame that your DS had to be privy to that conversation.

On the bright side, saying no gets easier.

Re: Bank of Snafu

Lucy - ITA, but when ex asked DS heard and suggested that I give/loan his dad my gas money - DH & I keep "gas cash" on us (there's a gas station that gives a discount for cash )

I think he should have asked to talk to me privately, not if front of DS. I know it had to be hard for him to ask - and I feel bad for him, but I didn't want to stress myself anymore...

Re: Bank of Snafu

I suspect ex knew/sensed the Bank of Snafu is closing, and deliberately asked in front of your boy so that you would be more likely to say yes. - Glad you had the opportunity to talk to your DS about it though.

Re: Bank of Snafu



Ya'll are gona love what I discovered last night... I'm laughing about it


DS got a new fund raiser before Thanksgiving & took it with him to his dad's (any guesses where this is going...)

Anyway- ex's "friend" has ordered something... but there's no $$/check - according to DS his dad said he'd pay for it, but didn't send a payment . I'm not dealing with it .
