We have a fairly normal Christmas, we unfortunately have some baggage. I was asked by psycho ex to make sure DS called him today. Ds didn't call him as he isn't arsed. Now my view is up yours. He pays nothing, causes loads of grief so why the fuck would I make: force
My child to call Him! My beautiful DS has been left waiting with no one turning up, we have sat there with him, and now we get an ultimatum & if DS doesnt contact him them I am evil. I will take that I am evil, I am done, a decade of this shit. The bio dad is not seeing him tomorrow as its "my fault" so day after Boxing Day. Im waiting on the gifts that have to be sold back to the porn broker. Aibu to say you fucking c@@@@@&&

I don't entirely understand the connection between the lack of phone call and your DS not being picked up - was the phone call to make an arrangement? Why will the presents need to be sold to the pawnbroker (assuming that's what you meant?)?

Previous gifts have been sold to pawn brokers by ex, on a fairly regular occurrence. They bought my DS a gift of a game & I ended up buying a replacement system as it was sold! They actually asked for all the bits back, I bought the replacement parts & said never again. I'm just so fed up with up with it. My aibu is why to facilitate the ongoing conversation, when my DS is fed up of it as I am I.

YANBU "Make sure he calls me"

hmm

How about he fucks off to the far side of hell and then when he gets there, fucks off some more.

I hate people who order other adults to do things. How old is DS?

DS is 13, teenager r us, he is a lovely kid,can't be arsed with his bio dads hysterionics. We are all rather fed up with the drama over nothing.

just ignore. literally ignore. Say nothing. do nothing. Let him piss and wail against a blank wall.

Laughing at the idea of a parent expecting an ex partner to "Make" a 13 year old call him. That's not how it works. Your ex is just finding this out.

Ignore ignore ignore. Like literally don't even write back "you are an asshole" (which he is and I would want to respond to him). Just act like he isn't there. Because he isn't.

Urgh, the DS sent a txt to BD asking what time he is picking him up tomorrow & what a surprise no response all day. Expecting either a no show or a weird time arrival & then the normal aggro at the front door with a DS who doesn't actually want to go! I have to get better at ignoring this stuff, 10+ years of it, and nothing changes. Power games. Ps apologies for the crappy original post, I was trying not to drip feed.
