Gut Rumbles

look down the barrel

It's what i'm doing now. And that gun is loaded.

I've been paying "child support" to my ex-wife for almost three years now. She makes a lot of money, drives a brand-new SUV, put a swimming pool in her yard and lives high on the hog, giving pussy away out of both pant legs. Her claim against me is that I didn't pay ENOUGH to her, based on my income, especially when I took that lump-sum retirement. She wants to gouge my eyes out.

I could understand it if she and Quinton were living in poverty and my boy was running around in rags. But that's not the case. THEY live a lot better than I do. Quinton wears Nike and Tommy Hillfiger clothes. He has more crap than I EVER did as a child. And my ex-wife has shit all over the visitation agreement since day #1.

But I'm the villian in this mess. And I WILL be punished.

(UPDATE: I don't go to court on Monday. The hearing has been postponed due to conflicting cases for my lawyer. So... I'm still on hold.)


Women run the world and if you don't think so look at what we are paying for ass.

Acidman, I worry about where you are going with this.
I feel that I know you from a couple years of reading your blog, and swapping insults about grits versus Vegemite, and so on.

Lock the damn guns away and post the key to yourself or leave them with a good friend for a while.

You are too good a man to take the easy (or the coward's) way out.

You have done the hard yards before, steel yourself, and remind yourself that whatever happens, you are a free man in a free country, something which is the envy of millions around the world.

Stay strong, my friend.

Hang in there, old buddy. Her day will come. Take it easy and try not to worry, you have a lot to live for. Your kids and your small family and you do have friends. I look at my life every day, I still love a lot of things, I live each day, because you may not have another one. Think before you act. We still love you, take care my friend, Cat.

I think we should all pack the courtroom in a show of support, wearing T-shirts that say Burn the BC! in large print as a form of silent protest against what the divorce industry is allowed to do to men in America.

Hey Maggot! Order me one of those T-shirts, will ya?? That way Acidman knows we're all behind him.

A little unsolicited (and humorous) advice for you (concerning this mess)....

When your opponent’s sittin’ there holdin’ all the aces, there’s only one thing to do: Kick over the table...

Keep the faith Rob and remember: Where there’s hooch, there’s hope.

One thing you have ensured: the BC will never enjoy anything but an anonymous presence on the internet. You have too many friends here.

Post her pic! I'd like to see what was worth all the heartache.
