After major wheel squeaking, repeat phone calling, stalking of friends and local networking, I am scheduled to receive 15 WHOLE MINUTES of free legal advice from a real attorney today. So, I need a game plan. I need every question written down and assigned a certain number of seconds to present. I need all forms and documents up to date and ready to throw on the table. Its a marathon of information-absorbage, baby!
I’ve been rehearsing how I’m going to introduce my case since I sat down at my desk this morning. Luckily, its dreary and cold out, so most sunshine-addicted Coloradans are hibernating today, and my phone has remained silent. But yeah, I’m determined to get what I need to represent myself from this (apparently awesome) attorney.
An update on Rooferman. Grandma Ruby apparently went by his house again, only this time Blondie was there. She talked to Ruby for a good while, explaining to her why Rooferman is NOT going to jail, and the Hot Check dude is just full of it. Blondie also told Ruby that….get this, she has been working on the roof with my ex.
Yeah, you heard me right. Ruby told me that Blondie even had a near-death experience on a ladder while “helping him roof.” She apparently was so freaked out by it, she went into his truck and cried.
For those of you who don’t know, Roofing is in the top 10 most dangerous jobs, due to people falling.
The fact that this man has manipulated his new girlfriend into climbing onto a roof with him, when she obviously has no experience and is therefore endangering her life….for HIM, makes me want to puke. Why? Because I was there. Because he has found another girl as clueless as I was.
Dear, kind Ruby actually asked me, “Do you think he even realizes what amazing women he has been with in his life? I mean, you moved to Louisiana with him, and now this girl is up on a roof, working with him.”
Part of me wanted to reply, “OF COURSE HE REALIZES IT! OBVIOUSLY THIS TACTIC HAS WORKED WELL FOR HIM IN THE PAST! I GUESS HAVING A BIG DICK WILL MAKE STUPID WOMEN FOLLOW IT TO THE END OF THE EARTH!”
Great sex is not worth risking your life. It does not mean that the person loves you. It makes me sad that someone else has become the victim of that situation, who is now so devoted to this man, she has started sacrificing her own safety. Blondie also is going to get a full time job, so Rooferman can have the winter off from his dangerous trade, and they can get their “heads above” water.
I was saying those exact words to Ruby 2 years ago.
So familiar. So sad. So not my problem anymore.
