The amount of gas this is wasting across the US is probably mind blowing.

It is hard, I understand that. I've been there. Just continue to be honest with the child. Don't down grade the ex in front of the boy. (honest, yes) The ex will have plenty of time to do that to himself. Kids remember a lot more than you'd think. Continue to raise him by your household's standards. Things work out in the end, But it does take time and a lot of patients. I talk to my daughter everyday, always have. (she is now 35, with children of her own.) She still fights with her mother all the time. When she needs advice, or help with something. Or even the birth of her children, I and my present wife (her mother in law) are the first people she calls. And that feels so good. And makes all the past struggles I went through, worth while! So just hang in there!

It is hard and we never talk bad on the EX in front of the child. He will understand sooner or later. My girl's two daughters have accepted me and are happy i'm around. But there father is dead a long time and he was my best friend growing up so I think they like that. I talk to my daughter every night and I have her every weekend so mommy could go out drinking with her new BF. She will see when my daughter turns 12 and can choose who she wants to live with it will be me.

Yes, they will understand sooner or later. "I have her every weekend so mommy could go out drinking with her new BF. She will see when my daughter turns 12 and can choose who she wants to live with it will be me." And you are right on that also. They remember all that. My daughter did, and still does. (years later) They learn that they can't count on them. And it carries over into their adulthood. And to be honest. I couldn't have planned, or gotten any better revenge, than that. So now when my ex-wife treats our daughter badly, (or they are fighting) And I see my ex. I just remind her that is our daughter that will ultimately is responsible for her burial (or funeral) And the way she she is going (my ex) I would not be the least surprised, if our daughter just chucked her body in a ditch, out in the country. And said Screw you! What goes around, comes around. All you have to do is wait long enough. Hang in there, you (two) are doing the right thing. And the rewards later in life. Is un-imaginable.

Customers who expect everything to be free, and me to be a miracle worker. You didnt take care of the vehicle, i cant go back in time and make all the damage you caused go away. And just because something completely unrelated to the work i did breaks in a week, doesn't mean i deserve your attitude, or that i broke it.
