pop a kids balloons?
/rant on

So I dropped my kid off to school Monday morning. His birthday was the next day. We has a party for him over the weekend.
His grandmother bought him a bunch of helium filled balloons. He asked to have them brought back home to Mom's with him. I agreed, and left the balloons on Mom's porch (after I dropped the boy off at school and no one answered at mom's.

So the next day I get a call from mom who is in tears. She apologizes profusely for the incident. I am unaware of the incident

It turns out Mom's new hubby told her when I dropped them off, him and I argued - and he popped all the balloons in my face.
So that didn't actually happen - but the a$$ hole did in fact pop all the balloons.

Seriously. What kind of man pops his step kids' balloons???

/rant off

So anyways. How's everyone? Been awhile since I stopped by as things (I thought) had gotten better and drama had stopped.
I can't help but wonder if the police would be willing to charge him for mischief/destruction of property?

Hey wretched - glad to hear you're still alive and kicking. Things have been pretty good on here for quite some time. Lots of the old trouble-makers are long gone which has vastly improved things.

Sounds like your ex is with a dweeb. I can't help but wonder why, on earth, she would be reduced to tears over an alleged aggressive balloon-popping episode. But then you know what they say "crazy people attract other crazy people."

And no, I would hope that taxpayers are not paying for police to look after something such as this. Balloon popping? he he he

Next time I met the ex's new beau, I'd bring a balloon with "No. 1 douchebag" just for him.

What a twerp! Is this the best she could do?
