Today’s rider of the “short bus” is “Had Enough”, who has been hooked up with her husband since his daughter “Ellis” was 15. Seems that “Ellis”, now in her thirties, has been sucking the financial life out of family since she discovered the virtues of drugs and alcohol.
“Had Enough” has suddenly realized that “Ellis” is threatening Enough’s retirement and is contemplating bailing out rather than watching her future go up “Ellis’s” nose, never mind that she isn’t able to help her own daughter by a previous relationship.
What is “Had Enough” to do?
Dear “Had Enough”:
So I am to understand that you were walking around with your head up your ass for well over 15 years and you just now are asking Moi to bail your oblivious butt out? Did you even read what you sent to me?
First, tell your own daughter to go her own way, as you have just watched any assistance due her vanish. Next, if you live in a community property state, pack your husbands bags and call a good divorce attorney, the party’s over.
Given that you must be in your late 40’s to early 50’s good luck finding Prince Charming. At least you won’t be funding “Ellis’s” drug habit or your ex-husband’s stupidity.
Today should be the “first” day for the rest of your life. Don’t screw it up.
