My ex-husband has, for some reason, decided that he needs to talk to me every few days, about the kids, etc. Yes, there are some real things we needed to discuss, like logistics for our DS flying and such, and my older DS was in a car accident, so I did call to let him know, and discuss getting the car repaired, BUT, that doesn't mean he needs to call me every couple of days and talk for 20 minutes or more!! OMG, it's giving me heartburn. I suppose he's lonely, but I don't really want to hear about his sinus infection, how stupid doctors are, his job, his car, etc. I DON'T CARE. I feel like hanging up on him after 2 minutes, because I don't want to be sucked into his unending pit of negativity and BS. I suppose I "should" feel sorry for him because I have moved on, made friends, dated some, and have a full life while he's lonely, but I don't, and I'm not even going to make an effort. He was a total jerk most of our marriage, made our lives miserable with his constant mood swings, Debbie Downer behavior, and drug use, so WHY does he think he can call me for sympathy and friendship now??? Clearly, I need to be a bigger *witch* or something.
The other thing is, one of my best friends called me the other night to tell me that my ex has been texting/messaging her, saying he can get her a "great" job working with him and they could travel around together, since he needs a "travel companion." WTH? She was understandably insulted for me, since he's trying to not only get into her pants, but poaching my friends as well. Yes, I know he's lonely, and my buddy is a good looking single woman, but come on! I honestly wouldn't care if he DID hook up with her or anyone else, but she's MY friend, darn it. How petty and immature do you have to be to try to date your ex wife's friends? Is that a revenge thing or is he just desparate or something? I just don't see the point, especially since there are plenty of other women out there. It's almost as bad as trying to date my sister!
OK, I'm done with my ranting. Deep breaths. Too bad I didn't think to make it part of the divorce agreement that we would only communicate via text and email, lol.
