To tell ex to fuck right off

Ex abruptly stopped seeing DD four months ago (new partner on the scene). Literally just stopped turning up, no contact since. She was devastated and it's only been the last few weeks she's stopped asking about him.

Her 4th birthday is in 3 weeks. I've just had a text off him: "whats happening with DD's birthday" I text him back and said 'in what sense?' and he replied "i want to see her"

I'm torn between ignoring him, sending him a laughing face emoji or replying 'well she wanted to see you when she was in the hospital for two days and when you didn't turn up to her school play and all the times she tried calling you and you didn't answer so i'd suggest you fuck right off asking whats happening on her birthday you utter cock'

AIBU?

There is no court order in place re contact.

Nope. I think that's perfect!

I would send that text but then I’m a mardy cow. Is he paying maintenance?

FenellaMaxwell Mon 04-Mar-19 12:31:13

I would bloody send it too

Queenofthestress Mon 04-Mar-19 12:31:43

Nope, I'd send that!

Send the text. Poor dd.

Are you the OP who walked past your ex with his new GF in town recently?

Your response sounds perfect

Lolasinthegarden Mon 04-Mar-19 12:32:29

He's cut maintenance in half. And its a bloody week late each month until I text him and hassle him.

Ratbagcatbag Mon 04-Mar-19 12:33:00

I'd absolutely send that message.
And maybe see his response. But he doesn't get to swan back in and then fuck off again. What a dick.

Is he paying maintenance?

Ratbagcatbag Mon 04-Mar-19 12:33:28

Would you get more by going to CSA? Let them deal with it?

Lolasinthegarden Mon 04-Mar-19 12:33:33

No but he sounds like a cock too!

Mrskeats Mon 04-Mar-19 12:33:35

Is he paying cms amount or above? If not then cms too. How people do this is beyond me.

sweetcheeksmahoaney Mon 04-Mar-19 12:34:08

send that messge op.

She does deserve the opportunity to have a relationship with her dad, if at all possible.

Why is he asking what's happening on her birthday? Is he expecting to turn up to a party or something?

I would want to send this (but you know him better).

'You have ignored DD for four months. The abrupt way you dropped out of her life and refused to answer any of her calls was hugely upsetting for her. I will not allow you to drop in and out of her life at your convenience. If you want to see her, make formal arrangements through a court. Don't contact me again unless it's a through a lawyer.'

combatbarbie Mon 04-Mar-19 12:36:21

I'd absolutely send that message and go through CMS for proper maintenance arrangements

Drum2018 Mon 04-Mar-19 12:36:58

I wouldn't be telling him any plans. If he wants access let him go through the proper channels. I love your response but is it worth getting into a slanging match with him? Did he know she was in hospital, did you inform him of the school play? If not then there is no point bringing those up as he will throw it back at you that you didn't tell him. Don't send any texts that he can use against you if he applies for court ordered access. Has he been paying maintenance while he was absent? I'd either ignore it or just ask, why the sudden interest?

Lolasinthegarden Mon 04-Mar-19 12:37:05

A relationship on his terms? I'm always interested when people say that, what they actually mean...At what point do you decide his right to see his child is worth more than the emotional wellbeing of a child who's father flits in and out of her life depending on his cock?

Fiveredbricks Mon 04-Mar-19 12:37:28

Cms. Him seeing her now will just hurt your daughter even more.

Dieu Mon 04-Mar-19 12:38:05

Men like this boil my blood, they really do. Your poor daughter ... and poor you too thanks No jury in the land would convict you, OP! wink And as an aside, what kind of woman would want to see a bloke who's making no effort with his child? Talk about a major red flag hmm

cstaff Mon 04-Mar-19 12:38:29

If he does turn up on her birthday and then disappear again for months at a time all that is going to do is devastate your poor daughter. What a waste of bloody space. Does he have any idea how his fucking around is affecting his child. Also if you are doing something for your daughters birthday make sure it is out of the house so that he can't just turn up unannounced.

Send that text - it sounds perfect.

Lolasinthegarden Mon 04-Mar-19 12:38:54

Yes he knew she was in hospital. He blocked my number so I told his mum who told him. No text or call. Yes he knew about the school play, we have a shared calendar which I presume he can still access which has all the dates on it.

Mrskeats Mon 04-Mar-19 12:41:19

He blocked your number whilst your daughter was in hospital?
That’s shocking. Why?

outpinked Mon 04-Mar-19 12:42:37

Gosh, what an arsehole. Definitely send the text and don’t let him attend. In all likelihood he’ll want some photos for his social media to look like Daddy of the year then he’ll fuck off again and won’t see her for months. It’s not fair on your DD. If he wants access he can take you to court and you can have an order put in place.
