Age Discrimination

Oh shut up, Liz Ryan. There is a lot of fear in the working world these days. Older workers may feel neglected or pushed aside in favor of younger, sprightlier workers. Age discrimination is a big problem for folks aged 50 or older and even some people in their forties. People in fear tend to…

Apartment Living

Now that we (the children and I) are out of the house that my ex-husband chose and bought (without any of my input), we are living in an apartment.  An apartment miles and miles and miles away from him, his whore, and his toxic family.  According to Realtor.com and Zillow, that house is 3500 square…

Adulterer Tax

For many people 42 means the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything else.  That is, if you are a fan of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. To others, it is the amount of the Visa gift card given to a sidelined teenage-son from an insensitive asshole.   How or why would the amount be…

Alimony and Wage Garnishment

My divorce was final in September 2017. Although it was stated in the divorce decree that I am to receive alimony each week, I have yet to receive one red cent. Here it is going on February 2018. I knew this would happen. That is why I refused to accept any settlement unless wage garnishment…

The Big Lie

  One thing you should not do after a time of someone else’s crisis is not assert that you would have helped if only someone would have asked or if you would have known.  You shouldn’t say this because more than likely you will be lying. Most people with a crisis looming do ask.  Many…

Zap and Nuke

The ex-husband and his syphilitic sidepiece are at it again. He sent our daughter an email with only, “Contempt- ‘when you sell household appliances.’  Next week is going to be interesting.”  Actually, our divorce decree states that I cannot remove appliances that typically come with a house sale.  What he is referring to is a…

Most Homewreckers Are Village Bicycles

It can be difficult after being uprooted and financially abandoned in a strange land. There are no long-term friends that you can turn to in a crisis. The ease of familiarity of place and time is not at your liberty. There can be some drawbacks with being too familiar however, some major drawbacks. Often, those…

Homewreckers Play a Mug’s Game

mug: British Slang. a gullible person; dupe; fool. On the emotional position of being the other woman, and why to avoid it…….the homewrecker says: “Did I know what a mug’s game was before I got involved with a married man? – No.” “A mug’s game,” she told me, “is ripping your knees raw and breaking…

“So Much Wasted Time”

Supposedly, David Cassidy’s last words were ,“So much wasted time.” I feel time, acutely.  Every minute of every hour of every day, I worry about the time.  I worry if I did enough each hour to prepare each day for the day that we can move forward.  I worry if I did enough each day…

Wishing Your Ex-Husband Dead

When I laughed again this morning at an article and its comments (mostly the comments) my daughter said she had thought I was just tired last night when I couldn’t breathe from laughing so long and hard over the same comments. Honestly, I hadn’t had that good of a laugh in a long time. The…

Worst Grandpa EVER! Shouldn’t Be Able to Vote

As I continue to purge the house to get ready to move, periodically I find little items that help me exercise my rage. I chucked the mug in the picture out the back door. Initially it didn’t break so I had to keep rage-throwing it to the very back of the lot until it was…

Homewrecker’s Benevolence

This home wrecking whore is so benevolent that she decided to send her secret into Post Secret instead of sending it to the wife. When I read the card, my first reaction was to roll my eyes and spit out, “How benevolent!” When you right click to save the photo, the title of the postcard…
