After 5 years of him being gone I sometimes get copies weird emails sent to daughter.... this one is about a craze for doing something that make you pass out...

So I sent a reply saying we were laughing about it, and DD isn't lilkley to do that as not stupid... and it's a crazy from 9 months ago.

He now says with a reply like that, it shows why he doesn't communicate with me... and then lies and says someone died becasue of it in our area this week.. but it's not in the news.. he always makes things up.

Want to send his a really snotty reply, as he knows I always reply when he emails me,,, Do you think he did it because he wants me to bite...

Why did you feel you should reply to an email which was sent to your DD? How old is she?

Exactly, after 5 years you would imagine you would know that the best response to stupid comments is silence.

I'm so confused

If I don't send a reply he calls me ignorant.

The last time he sent me an email it was a photo of the wound where he had his toe cut off due to infection, it was horrid, I had to call DD and tell her not to open it as it would make her sick.

Maybe he sent it because he'd heard someone had died and wanted to warn her? Things like that crop up often, especially on Facebook.

I don't get why you're being the way you are

Have I missed something? Previous thread or something?

Waltermittythesequel Fri 19-May-17 22:05:56

what?!

Wolfiefan Fri 19-May-17 22:05:57

Maybe he really thought this craze was a threat to your child and wanted you to be aware? confused

I am being like this because most of the things he sends tend to annoy our teenager, he preaches at her on the phone about things and when she tried to change the subject to things she likes he dismisses her views.

At 15 she is a very well rounded child who ends up texting me , to shout so he can hear on the phone that she has to do something so she can get away from the phone call as she hates hurting people's feeling even dads.

If I don't make some reply about having read the article, he will call her and she gets 30 mins of being lectured about something, so she asks me to reply. He really does thing he knows everything.

Don't mind me, I'm just pulling up a chair so I can get comfy for the drip feed...

Ignore him, and teach your dd to say "this conversation is making me uncomfortable and I am ending it now"

ThisIsStartingToBoreMe Fri 19-May-17 22:10:47

Or what "NellieFiveBellies" said

A parent annoying a teenager.

A parent 'preaching' at a teenager.

A teenager not wanting to spend 30 minutes on the phone to a parent.

Perfectly normal then!

ClemDanfango Fri 19-May-17 22:13:11

Just send "ok thanks, bye."

Starlighter Fri 19-May-17 22:13:43

My head hurts trying to figure this thread out... hmm

Frillyhorseyknickers Fri 19-May-17 22:15:26

Whatever you do OP, don't respond as suggested above, because it makes no fucking sense. 😬

thatorchidmoment Fri 19-May-17 22:15:30

This is all quite bizarre. I assume 'he' is your DD's father?

Panicmode1 Fri 19-May-17 22:17:08

I'm not sure I understand the OP, but we had a letter from DD's school this week to say some girls made themselves pass out at school...and it made the local radio. They didn't die though....

No idea about the rest of the post!

PickAChew Fri 19-May-17 22:18:52

I'm guessing he's an ex who was abusive?

And he's carrying it on. if he's being inappropriate, tell her it's OK to say "I have homework to do, dad, goodbye" and then hang up. She doesn't have to listen to it for a minute and definitely not 30 and she doesn't need to have you give her an excuse to hang up. Teach her to be strong and assertive.

ScarlettFreestone Fri 19-May-17 22:19:33

I'm not sure why people are finding the OP difficult to understand?

Her ex of 5 years regularly sends her 15 yo DD emails with links to the kind of rubbish that appears on Facebook but is easily disproved by a quick check of snopes.

He CC's her in these emails and complains to her daughter if they are not acknowledged.

OP I'd just reply with a link to the relevant snopes page. Or just say "duly noted".
