The thing is, his wife is sweet and his daughter is an absolute doll. Krya and his kid get along better then peas and carrots. But I can no longer stand him. I can't even stand the thought of him because his manipulative way throws me through loops and makes me think I need to step on eggshells to keep from harming his sensitive little soul before I realize... OH YA! CREEPY GUY IS AN ASS! And then I get caught up thinking about how such a sweet woman could marry such a jerkish guy and have such a darling little girl and, geesh!, do I have ADD or something?
Here's where Creepy Manipulator gets annoying. The whole thing blew up in his face when it finally dawned on me what he was doing and I called him out on it. All this went down 5 or 6 weeks ago (I really don't keep count) in a way that he said "Call me when you're not mad anymore." and I said "Mmm hmm." and I have never called him again but dude is STILL CALLING ME! And/or emailing and/or texting. Like, EVERYDAY! I have not spoken to or responded in written form this guy since I called him out on his games.
Frankly, I'm not sure what to do anymore. Jeremy is too much of a
I explained to Kyra weeks ago that she probably wouldn't be able to see her friend anymore because the daddy doesn't know how to play nicely. Kyra asked for a better explanation. I told her that sometimes people say things and do things that hurt other people's feelings and when Mommy told this daddy that he wasn't being nice he laughed at Mommy and said "I was just kidding with you! **laugh laugh** I was only joking! **laugh laugh** I'm sorry, I was kidding! **laugh laugh**" AND THEN CONTINUED HIS MANIPULATION.
Okay, so that last part I explained to Kyra in a more child appropriate manner.
Kyra accepted our talk, said she would miss her friend and then moved on with her day. Occasionally Krya still mentions her friend, but she seems to understand that she probably won't see her anymore.
Today comes and Creepy Manipulator calls twice. And then emails. I read the email and it essentially says, Hey! My kid wanted to call on her way home from school. I didn't put her up to it. So then I listen to the message and, sure enough, it is his kid. First messages says "Hi Alicia!" Second message says "Hi Alicia! Can Kyra come play at my house or can I come play at yours? I love you!"
So, Life? Why is it my 4 year old can move on but a nearly 40 year old, umm, can't?
