Well, my ex-huband, Chris, got fired from his job at Target Distribution and I just found out.
Evidently he has been without work for two weeks now.
I didn't know he was fired until the child support checks quit coming.
He wasn't going to tell me.
All this time.... I thought he was going to work.
He was not asking to spend more time with his son. He was acting like he was at work. He came to pick up Matteo on Wednesday at 5pm, like he had just got off work.
He came to get Matteo and I asked him,
"Did you get fired?"
He said yes.
I started crying.
I told him that I don't know how I am supposed to pay the babysitter.
He said he was going to ask his grandma for money.
He left and then texted me:
"Please keep it together in front of Matteo. In the last year, I lost my wife, my house and my job. Things I have worked hard for."
I never replied. But all I could think was that he didn't work hard for any of that. He threw it all away.
He won't tell me why he got fired.
He can't seem to say much about it. I know he is embarassed.
I ope now that he getting close to rock bottom he will quit the drugs and the alcohol and start on apath to a normal life.
But who am I kidding?
