He just now let's me know they made it home safe. Still haven't heard from my son in over a fucking week. And he didn't update me with any itinerary information. so I never even knew their flight information. He left his phone in the hotel all week. Fucking inconsiderate. I'm so fucking pissed at him.

Stay calm and advise him that you need to keep tabs on your kid because he's ... uhm ... your kid. In order for you to be a responsible adult, he is going to have to be one as well.

Ask him some possible questions:
If the child is involved in a plane, auto, or any kind of accident, who will be contacted and how?
What is the child's blood type and allergy information?

Let him know that you are both new at this. It can be done with you both working together.

Is your boy too young for his own cell phone? It might ease the stress for you both; the use might be restricted to when he is taken by either parent on vacations or spontaneous day trips. Carriers often have "family" plans. Could be something to discuss with the ex.

If nothing else, the one thing divorce does, is provide the opportunity for both parties to sincerely work together ... possibly for the first time. Wink

RE: Ranting corner
SO. I leave the car with you at 8:30am and you say it might not be until later in the morning before you can take a look at it? Uhm ... why did I bother to make this appointment last Friday, for 8am this morning? Why didn't you have me schedule this appointment later in the morning?

SO. It is now 5 hours later. I call and you tell me no one has looked at it yet?

OH. Now 10 minutes later, you are able to give me an estimate?

Guess who is getting a new mechanic?

Go on, guess. I'll wait. Drinking Beverage

That was a total dick move on his part.

RE: Ranting corner
Air conditioner went out at work. This morning the owner comes in to the office Sasha and I share and says he is getting portable AC units for the billing department so they don't start leaving. Blink Also says that we (Sasha and I will be fine.)

Sash and I have been in that building for over a year, we warned about the AC issues and other issues and were ignored. Billing Department has never worked during the summer in that building.

After he left our office we just looked at each other. Then discussed the fact that we didn't know leaving was an option. If it had been thrown out there as an option, we'd have left many days last year between baking in the summer and freezing our butts off in the winter - not to mention the day it was raining in my office.

FUCK!

I will be pushing the boundaries of the dress code tomorrow as I don't plan to spend another eight hours in 80+ degree temps with no ventilation.

Just another day in paradise. Dodgy

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

I would die. I don't want to open the electic bill when it comes at the end of the month.

Or our collective positive thoughts created a positive energy wave that vomited itself upon the bakery staff.
Cool

Lit candles to the god of cake. Tongue

Catholics are all about lighting candles for stuff...guess the idea stuck with me.

Was the icing generous? That's what I prayed for. Angel
