I am angry. Very angry.

First, and most annoyingly, my ex-husband.
Our oldest child was in her first year at university this year. It could have cost us musciplicitious bucks, but because she had been such a good student, and because of choices I made to live in a pit of a town in a very rural area, she entered a school that is ivy league comparable. T. Jefferson set it up as so. It is, no doubt, an excellant place of education. Beyond this, she recieved scholarships. What could easly be a $40,000 a year education, we pay $6K. That's 3K each. The bastard won't pay his share. He makes me sick.
After highering an attorney, he finally paid $1500, with the promise to pay $500 for the following three months, March, April, May...
Can we guess? No truth to his words, no money to my bank account. (After a phone-call from my attorney he did send a check for $219.25, WTF is that?)
Now he has sent a copy of a dentist bill for $7hundred and something and is declaring that his payment to this bill should devoid his financial obligation to the tuition. (He was court-ordered to maintain health and dental insurance)
I am so sick and tired of trying to explain to this numbnut what is reality and what is not. His kids refer to him as the "sperm donor" and that is not by my requisite, but their observation.
I need to vent WHAT A MORON!
We have been divorced for ten years. Our kids were aged 4 and 9, now 14 and 19. In the ten years I have had full custody I have taken good care of them. This means they have been to the doctor, not only when sick, but for well-visits. They have been to the dentist. They have been taken care of. I never wanted to nickle-and-dime their care, but now he has opened a can of worms.
Funny thing is his $700 dental bill was for getting their teeth "sealed" and I had that done a year before- and I have the bill to back it up!
In order to avoid paying me the $1500 that he owes me, he has now incurred a suit that will cost him at least $3500, plus attorney fees which are court ordered to be the resposibility of the negligent party. He has also, again, lost the affection and respect of his children.
Personally, I'd like to shoot him, but not until we go to court and make sure that he finally has the court-ordered life insurance with the kids as beneficiaries...
When I shoot him, I will not aim for the heart. (I don't think he has one anyway!) I think I'll start with the feet, to get him still, and then work my way around to see him squirm the most. I'm not usually this mean, but he deserves so much worse than me.
I think we'll stop with this first thought tonight. Second will only make me want to hurt someone... and if he's not directly in my sights, well, what's the point!
