I should be getting my laptop back sometime today (In fact, I was expecting it back by this morning) but it's costing us more than we can possibly afford. If you haven't kicked in lately and have a few spare bucks, Barb and I would sure appreciate it. My checking account had a negative balance until I transferred the last of my saving account into it, so we may get hit with an overdraft fee. The reason we're in such bad shape is because Barb's boss finally put her on the books which meant they began holding back a week, which means she couldn't make her usual deposit last Saturday because there was no check last week (the fact she's getting paid minimum wage for a skilled job with nearly 18 years experience doesn't help much, either but that's another story.).

So any help you could give us would be deeply appreciated because I can't cover the $60 check that I'll have to write this guy today until my own check comes in later.

I have great sympathy, potter. It's not much but it's what I can spare. Good luck

"Barb and I"? Who the hell is this "Barb" person?
What happened to your wife and family?
Frankly, I have no intention of contributing to the upkeep on a harem.

"Harem"? No, that's not me you're thinking of but my former family's newest acquisition. He's the one into making harems.

In case you haven't been tuning in since February, I left home last March and found another girlfriend. Barb's my fiancee and we've been together in one form or another for going on 6 months now.

The decision as to whether or not to contribute knowing the facts is, of course, entirely up to you. I just feel compelled to set the record straight.

WTF does that mean?

"I left home last March and found another girlfriend."

Oh, that's right! That's what I get for not being a regular reader. Last time I was here, your wife (I think you said her name was "douchebag"? But everybody has to have a name, I guess) had kicked you out, and I was concerned, from your postings, that you may harm yourself. You seemed inconsolable, at the time. And you have had time, since then, to get another girlfriend, leave her, and then get still another girlfriend (Barb?) you plan to marry? You sure get around! Compared to you my life is quite dull. Have you set a date yet? My Dad always warned me about saying "I'm getting married" before I actually set a date for the wedding. My Dad also told me not to disparage my ex's, in public, but he wasn't around for the Internet age

Oh, Anon, go to the archives, and hit "March 2009" start with the post on 3/02 and between the posts having to do with politics, you will read the saddest story ever told. The part about his ex-wife taking his grandchild is heart-rendering. Now at this point, "the douchebag" turned up in comments. Of course, Jurassic let us in on her her progressive and certain insanity from brain lesions, so we know where she's coming from! I have to admit, Jurassic, that "I believe the police told you he's not your grandchild" is one of the most chilling sentences I ever read. A world of heartbreak in that one. But apparently, alls well that ends well! Congrats on your coming nuptials!

"So what reason will I have to live? I'm too young to be redundant but too old to start another family. 50 is a truly shitty age to be starting over."

That was you on March 2nd, 2009! And today, love blooms anew, and marriage is in the offing. See, it only took six months! And you were pissing and moaning like you were never gonna get over it. But you didn't let it stop you, or even slow you down, and this time, of course, it's the real thing!
Have you set a date yet?

And I'm very sure your ability to use your blog to present your side of the story (I know, "the douchebag" eventually found the comments button) tailor the facts to your liking, and disparage your ex was an essential adjunct to your quick recovery. Why, you even do it here! Isn't the Internet wonderful, and so therapeutic!
