Drama & Psychosis

Now that my food poisoning has passed, I've been getting busy, taking the kids to the mall, cleaning, sewing curtains ... and dealing with the threatening message my dad's mistress left on my mom's voice mail.  

What?

Oh. My. Gosh.  I was talking to my mom, chatting about my kids' morning excursion to Build-A-Bear, when she said "huh, I have a message, just a second."  I laughed, because that is SO my mom - she's great at multitasking.  I don't mind ... because I'm nosy!  I like to hear about upcoming appointments and the hellos of her friends, or I just tune it out and finally answer the incessant "Mom? Mom! Hey Mom?" that inevitably comes when the children see me on the phone.

So, I started to listen to one of my kids, when the message's words drifted to my brain ... " ... you better have your "$*@%" ready girlfriend, because this is going to come back and bite you in the "#$%".  I snapped to attention, and as the rest of this caller's ranting registered in my mind, I demanded - MOM who WAS that?!  

I don't know why the mistress/girlfriend felt the need to call and so lividly and defensively threaten my mother.  Nothing has happened recently to warrant anything.  The divorce is still in process, but that's not my mom's fault. My mother has been TOO gracious about this ridiculous woman - to willing to let the blame get pushed onto herself.  But by golly, I am not that gracious.

I tried to get ahold of my dad.  I haven't talked to him in over a month (and THAT was a horrible conversation!) ... and I got his voice mail.  I don't know what stories he made up to get that woman SO vicious, but he needed to know that I did not appreciate his girlfriend treating his not-yet-ex-WIFE (aka, my mom!) that way.  I left a 4 minute message.

I guess my cheating, escort-hiring dad got just what he deserves ... a psychotic girlfriend.  Now they can be psycho together, making the world a lesser place everywhere they go.  

Oh, thank heavens for therapy.  Without it, my poor blog would be overtaxed with frustration!

Eesh, some people have too much time on their hands. Sounds like your dad managed to land himself a completely messed up chick. I hope your mom isn't too shaken up. Sounds like she's a very graceful person.

Sunny your Dad is a piece of work. I am so sorry. I would like to kick his arse real hard. Love you. And you and your family don't need any haters. Tell them to get to steppin' sista.

Jess said...

Nice!! She sounds very.....stable? LOL! I think your Dad is going to get just what he deserves with that one.

S said...

Nice. I am just sitting rolling my eyes at her. What a piece of work. They deserve each other.

Keep the voicemail so you can prove what a wench she is that is living with the sperm donor formally known as your father. That constitutes harassment and shows what a "classy" broad she really is.

Sonja said...

That woman is the devil, she pairs very well with your "dad." She doesn't show any intelligence at all. Your mom should play that message to the judge.

Karma, anyone? Sheesh. :hugs:

taffi said...

Clarifying: of course I meant karma for your wacky dad. Your MOTHER deserves none of this!

They say birds of a feather flock together. Looks like the last two cookoo birds on earth found each other.

MusicalMom said...

Aack! What a piece of work. :(

KAT said...

Wow! What a way to show herself in an even lessor light.

StraightAs said...

Sheesh! Your mom is gaining Sainthood. Love ya!

Queen M said...

What else can I say that hasn't already been said? Wow! Hugs to you and your mom for having such strength and grace about you - and when you both don't... YOU GO, GIRLS!! Leave the trash out in the yard, is what I have to say to that.

I feel so bad for your Mom, she doesn't deserve that, thats for sure. Your mom has been through enough already. I hope everything works out for the best. Hopefully she'll get everything she can out of this divorce. I hope you will be okay as well, good luck!
