Why I Love My Sister

When I told Sis about the offending text message last night, this was her reply:

“Oh no, he isn’t the kind of guy who would forget his own son’s birthday! He’s just the kind of guy who would leave his wife and children for a skanky ho like her.”

And THAT is why I love her.

In other news, I got an email from Douche’s mother last night for the first time in months and months. Last weekend, I took some videos of my boys playing football at the Hall of Fame, and uploaded them to YouTube (it was taking forever to attach them directly to email), and sent the links to Douche, his mother, and his sister. This is the message I got from his mother, in total:

Douche can’t view these. Can you just attached the video files to the e-mail without going to utube. That way I can burn a DVD and send it to him.

There’s no “thanks for the videos,” no “what would Little J like for his birthday,” no nothing other than me needing to do something for Douche. She hasn’t called the boys since Big J’s birthday (in January), and the last time they talked to her was Mother’s Day when I had them call her.  It wasn’t so much what was said that pissed me off, it’s what isn’t said.

This just illustrates the kind of crap that she perpetuates in her son. Even if he doesn’t have a computer at home, there are these places called libraries – wonderful places full of books and computers you can use to stay connected to the internet, even. Besides that, I know he has internet access where he’s been in Afghanistan, because we’ve emailed back and forth a few times since he’s been gone. Not only that…he knows my phone numbers, why couldn’t he ask me himself (remember, he’s on leave right now, stateside)? Mama needs to do it for him? Give me a fucking break.

Let’s see…nasty text from his wife, bullshit email from his mother…I’d say that leaves his sister and his dad. Wonder which one is going to fight his (unnecessary) battles for him next time?

    All of the above. I am still in the middle of the shit storm with my in-laws. And now my SIL may be coming into to town today. FML I am not in the mood to be told what an ungrateful bitch I am.

    Well there’s the problem. He’s afeared of them there book thingys. Thems makes ya thunk.

    Sorry, hon. You know what I think about that crap. It’s hard to protect the kids from their bullshit. They each and every freakin’ one suck! I swear I wouldn’t bother. I’d let them come hunting me if they wanted pics, etc.

    At least you’re making an effort, which is more than I can say about him or any of his family.

    If I were you, I would totally be the bigger person here and say, the files are too large to attach to an email, but I can burn a DVD for him and send it myself. She won’t have anything to bitch about then! Bitch!

    A nice simple reply to the request.

    “I don’t think Douche needs to be told how to access youtube, it’s on the internet and any moron can access it so don’t worry I’m sure he’s got it covered.”

    Dish – Giiiiiiiirl, you don’t need any more stress in your life! They need to get the hell on!

    Honeywine – They do. I haven’t sent much for a while, but I never get a thank you or anything…

    ETW – I just attached them and sent them back without a message. BIOTCH!

    Ron – Holy shit, man, that was funny. I wish I had thought of it!

    AZ – Welcome back.
