How Douche-y IS He?

Now, I know some of you are thinking, “how can Douche really be as douche-y as Ginger says he is?” Trust me, he IS. He has engaged in so much douche-y behavior, I don’t know how he lives with himself. You know all about the cheating, the lying, the general asshole-iness, but what happened today was completely unforgivable.

He texted my phone to say “Merry Christmas,” which I ignored. I didn’t really expect him to call the boys today, since his calls are very sporadic, and usually spaced a few weeks apart, and he had called a few days ago. So, when he called this afternoon, I was pleasantly surprised for them. They always go into another room when they talk to their dad, and I don’t ever try to pay attention to what’s being said. When they visited him, he was always listening in when I called, and it irked me to no end.

So, they had their chat, each having a little time with Dad, and then they came back downstairs. Little J started being ornery, but I just figured he was tired from getting up so early. He was complaining that this had been the worst Christmas ever (I agreed in my mind, but not out loud) because they couldn’t get Rock Band to work and it was just the three of us. Ouuuuch. That hurt. Big J tried to make him see that it hadn’t been so bad, telling him that their sister and step-sister had only gotten three presents. How did he know that? Because his dad told him. Little J said, “Yeah, because Dad gives all his money to HER (pointing at me), and didn’t have any left over for us.” UH WHAT?!?! And that it’s “your fault that he can’t live with us anymore.” Dagger through the heart, I’m telling ya.

Yeah, so if you don’t believe this man is a complete and total douchebag…he told his CHILDREN that he didn’t have presents for them and couldn’t come and see them on Christmas because he gave all his money to their mother. Not only is it untrue, WHY would you tell children that? On Christmas?! Fucker!

I was already emotional just from everything else going on lately and this made me crumble. I told them that their dad had no right to say things like that and went in my room for a few minutes until I could compose myself. I hate for them to see me cry, especially Big J. A few minutes later, Little J came in and apologized and said something like, “I’m sorry. It’s just that Dad tells me one thing and then you say another one, and I don’t know who to believe.” He was crying at this point, and while I didn’t want to tell him that his dad is a liar, I did say, “Little J. Look at me. Who is here for you every day? Who takes care of you when you’re upset? Think about that.” He just kind of looked at me for a minute, and hugged me.

Once we were both calmed down, I tried to call Douche to give him a piece of my mind. Mainly along the lines of, “you don’t fuck around with the boys,” or something to that effect. Of course, there was no answer at the Douche household.

Luckily, Little J perked up pretty quick because Big J had figured out the problem with the Rock Band game. ROCK BAND TO THE RESCUE!! So, for about 2 hours now, they’ve been playing guitar and drums and rocking out.

It’s been the longest day ever. No lie, I’ve been up and down all day long. It was nice that my parents weren’t here all day. Dinner was very relaxed, and there wasn’t anyone griping about the proper way to hold a fork or telling the kids to sit up straight. E and her husband stayed for a few hours, and I was happy to have time with them.

Luckily, right now is good. My boys are singing “Mississippi Queen” and it’s so cute and funny. Hopefully in the next few days, I’ll get a little video of them playing and post it. I’m really glad that I get to have them around all the time, even if they drive me crazy at least once a day.

    OMG!! I haven’t read much about what your ex has done to deserve the title of Douche, but I don’t need to now. It speaks volumes about a persons character when the F*ck with their own kids like that. It’s OK for adults to have issues and fight, but the kids should be off limits. It’s total bullshit to start using the kids against the other. Grrrr… that just pisses me off. I say kick him in the balls next time you see him.

    Yeah, the stupid thing is, he won’t deal with things WITH ME, he’d rather try and be sneaky because he’s chickenshit. He’s a mother fucker and I hope he gets syphillis when he cheats on wife number 2.

    OMG I know all about douchy ex-es… Mine doesn’t pay child support and likely never will and now has his ass in Thailand with his girlfriend for the FULL Christmasbreak… Not spending any of the holidays with his kid, no presents, no calls, nothing… Only thing he did was send his kid a txt saying “he was now sitting down at Christmas dinner”… Like WTF? Who cares? Your son sure doesn’t…

    I can’t believe how guys like your and my ex can actually look at themselves straight in the mirror every morning and think they are great parents… Sigh…

    That is totally uncalled for behavior. Surely, there must be some title even MORE insulting than Douche for him….I’ll think on it.

    Dutchie – We are sisters in douchy-ness! It’s hard to have to always feel like we have to make up for their dad’s bullshit, isn’t it? You’re great, babe.

    ETW – Let me know what you come up with! I’ve been calling him Douchecock a lot lately.

    He’s not a douchebag. That’s way too kind. He’s a fucking piece of shit for doing that to his kids.

    I’m glad it turned out okay. I don’t really think it was the Rock Band that turned it around. I think it was you!
