All of my exes live in Texas.....I wish ! ! !

So the divorce wasn't that long ago and I really am trying to keep things civil. But ... how do you do that when your ex is really a complete piece of work?

My daughter is getting ready to go to college. Next month to be exact. We are suppose to drive her up there and spend two days getting all the paperwork done. For the last two weeks he has been telling me that he would make the room reservations for us. I keep reminding and he keeps saying getting done.

So, today, I get the phone call. He made the reservations, but neglected to make a room reservation for me. He called with the number to the hotel so that I could make my own. Well, move in for the students is in two weeks, so when I called, guess what, there isn't a decent priced room left.....

Does him not making my reservation surprise me? Not at was kind of expected. So now how glad am I that I made that reservation myself two weeks ago.

Exes - when will we ever learn????

Is there any chance to share the room..... you could ask him if he could be civil for just one night... for your daughter's sake... Then happily pony up for the other room. Don't put more stress on yourself than it's already going to be..... and don't put a damper on your daugheter big day.... It will be a huge thing to her and she should see you guys getting along. Then you can make his life miserable afterwards..... and don't rely on him again... i am sure he did that on purpose.

PS... Don't send him to Texas...

and the B.S. continues with the "ex"! What an idiot he is. Why he treats you that way is beyond my understanding. My experience with you was very nice and you are a very nice person. Who knows, maybe sometime down the road it will work out but I have been distracted lately. I am sorry and you did not deserve it. Good thing you are smarter than your "ex". Of course, he has proven his stupidy time and time again, right? You got his number down to a science. What a jerk he is. Make sure you put him in a position to pay through the nose!

funin - everyone tells me that I should make him pay, but I guess its over as far as I am concerned. Sooner or later, what goes around comes around and he will get his......but thank you for the compliment. I hope you get your life in a better place for you.

I will or it will and I will keep you in mind. Don't worry about the "ex" so much. Just always be one step in front of him as you seem to be and remember, you have your children and they will make him pay anyway!

I understand why there are so many "make him pay" comments here. We tend to have a revenge chip inplanted in us, however, I want to compliment you on moving past that!!! You seem to have realized that any time spent plotting / seeking revenge against him, is simply more of your precious time wasted on him!!! Forget him, as much as you can! He's obviously not worth losing any more of your time over!!! You are a smart lady to see that! Like you said, what goes around comes around!! It just usually takes longer than we wish it would!!! Peace!!! Cabo!!!

cabo - revenge although sweet is really a waste of time. I decided a year ago that I have better things to do with my time....
