Before I get to the main event, I have something very cool to tell you. I was recently approached by Bad Online Dates and was asked to contribute to their site. They like my writing style and thought I would be a good fit. My first post is now up and I wanted to share it with you.
This is a paying gig and I’m very excited about this. The first article is really interesting. They have a Man’s POV section and a Woman’s POV section. My assignment was: Man’s POV: How it makes me feel when…She won’t date me because I’m a single dad.
And now, the Douche of the Week!
Many thanks to those that sent in nominations for our Douche of the Week feature. There were several great nominations. but in the end, there were two that clearly stood out above the rest. This week I’m selecting co-douches. If you don’t like the fact that I’m selecting two, feel free to nominate me for next week’s DOTW.
After the winning stories, I’m posting some of the other nominees. Don’t forget to send in your nominations for next week. Leave a comment here with your nominee or use the “Contact JR” button at the top of the page. You identity will remain completely hidden, because I’m all about the stealth. Consider me to be Alfred the butler.
To be considered for next week, I need your story by midnight Monday. The nominees can either be public figures, people you personally know or the ass who did something something shitty in your daily life.
winners losers are:
The a-hole boss
I went on my first job interview after grad school. My interviewee was a short little middle aged man with large rimmed glasses. After my interview, all the young women I would be working with asked him how the interview went and how I was. He said, “I don’t know how good a therapist she’ll be, but she has big knockers so I’m going to hire her.”
Ummmm….hello…..you don’t say that kind of crap to the group of young women (whom you hired) about a young woman you are about to hire! (Captain Inappropriate)
Flash forward to the time I had to go out of town with him to a training seminar. Watching him cheat on his wife whom we all adored with one of our fellow co-workers whom we also adored but wanted to strangle for letting his nasty ass lips touch hers was torture. I still gag at the thought of him.
The bad dad
I would like to nominate my soon to be ex husband for “Douche of the Week”. I don’t even know where to start with this. I guess I should start with the fact that he and I have 2 kids together. He also has a 9yr old from a previous marriage.
While were were ‘together’ he told me that I was not allowed to mention or ask about his older son because he was not my son and not my responsibility. If I ever asked about him I was told to “know my roll”. He only ever saw his older son once or twice a year (he lives 2 hours away).
Now that we are separated he only sees his kids for a total of (max) 40 hours a week. That’s if he has them for his every other weekend. He is consistently late picking them up and early dropping them off. If I even dare to ask him if he wants to see his kids more I’m told to “not pressure him or he won’t see them at all.” I should add that he lives 2 miles down the road from me.
Because he is in the military, he recently found out that he is being moved to Seattle for the next 7 years. Then he found out that he is too fat to go and has been delayed by 5 months. he was not planning on telling me that he was being delayed and decided to not see his kids for 3 weeks…..did I mention that he lives 2 miles down the road?
My favorite moment was when I found out that he was going on vacation for a week starting the day I found out…which was also the day he was supposed to pick the kids up from daycare. I found out on Facebook. he said he totally ‘forgot’ about the kids.
I should also mention that he ‘forgets’ about his kids on average 3 times a month. FORGETS.
