Dial L For Loser
Once again, O's father failed to show up or even call today. He was supposed to pick her up this morning. She called his house and cell phones, twice - at 8 a.m. and 9:15 a.m.. Left messages each time, the last one saying that we had to run errands and gave our cell phone number for him to call to let us know what time he'd be here. Nothing. No phone calls. At all. At home or on the cell.
O told me the last time he pulled this (two weeks ago), he did it because she hadn't called him enough during the week. So, let me get this straight: You, the adult, didn't come to pick up your daughter, the 11 year-old, because you don't think she paid enough attention to you? Come again?
She's pissed but not surprised. Which is really, really sad.
