RE: The Crazy Ex-Step Cousin


I haven't added one of these for a while.

"They're gonna say I'm too insane for my testimony to be accepted in court today, so I'm wearing a bow tie, a red converse, and letting them see the Eclectic ME!"

She's becoming increasingly self-aware. Although this may be for the boyfriend who beat her up, so I'd think she'd want her testimony to be accepted.

Also, she claims she got married over Christmas. I'm guessing it wasn't a legally binding marriage, 'cuz screw the system or something like that.

What? You don't wear a bow tie and red Converse tennis shoes when you want to be taken seriously? I usually couple that with a rainbow 'fro wig and a red, bulbous, artificial nose.

Speaking of crazy cousins, I called mine back on Friday. The call went to voicemail, so I left a message telling her who I am and that I would call her back another time. She called me back an hour later and the conversation went something like this:

(phone rings, I recognize the number...so I answer)

M: Hello, Andrea.
A: Who is this?
M: Uh... you called me. This is your cousin Michele. Do you usually not know who you are calling?
A: I didn't recognize your voice, and I call a lot of people. (irritated tone)
M: Okay... anyhow, what's up? (very calm tone)
A: Am I bothering you?
M: No, not at all. (again very calm)
A: Um...well... I uh... I just got thinking the other day that I haven't uh...talked to you...uh... much ever so.... How are you?
M: Well, yes... that is true. I'm good. How are you?
A: I'm okay. Am I bothering you? (asked in an angry tone)
M: No, not at all. I'm just remembering that when you called...(interrupted, but still using the calm voice)
A: How is your family?
M: Uh... they are all doing good, no complaints.
A: What? (again, angry tone)
M: I said that my family is doing well, no complaints. (still very calm)
A: Am I bothering you?
M: No. You are not bothering me. When you called the other day you asked about my mom's birthday...(interrupted)
A: I didn't call you 'the other day', I called you yesterday! I only called you ONCE. (extremely agitated tone)
M:(still very calm) Ummm... okay. Sorry. In my vernacular, 'the other day' means quite literally any day other than today, which would include yesterday. Just an expression. So when you called yesterday...(interrupted)
A:(still very agitated) I'm really sorry I bothered you. Goodbye! (click)

True, but generally when a sane person doesn't want to talk to someone, they just don't call. In my opinion, it is a special kind of crazy involved in a) not knowing who you are calling, b) not knowing what you really want to talk about with the person you are calling, c) grammar nazi-ing over a completely irrelevant point, and d) getting all pist off because of a, b, and c, therefore imply that it is somehow the fault of the person you've called and hanging up on them.

Replace "sane" with "somewhat reasonably polite," but yeah.  This actually reminds me of something the Etch's daughter would do to her.  Okay, put "sane" back in there.

Mema, sounds to me like your cousin wanted to say something, but just didn't have the courage to say/ask it once she got you on the phone.

I ask a friend of mine that quite often. 

He is notorious for starting a Skype instant messaging conversation, while he is clearly distracted or busy. It will take him several minutes to reply. Finally, after waiting and waiting for him to reply (to a conversation HE started) I'll ask "Am I bothering you? You seem busy or distracted."

He's just never put it together how rude it is to do that.

 I meant in context, not in general.  It sounds like it's a legitimate question in your case.

 I'm pretty sure she finds me intimidating. She lives in a very paranoid and abusive world. Since I know that about her, I'm extremely cautious about what I say to her and I don't volunteer a lot of information. I was just giving her the socially polite answers to the generic questions she was asking, so I think it didn't give her an easy 'in' to prying for info. Lacking a solid plan in advance, and not being all that quick on the conversational draw, panic set in.

Yeah, I knew what you meant. I was just sharing a somewhat funny situation. I keep wondering if he will ever put 2 & 2 together and think "Wait, I started this chat, why is he asking if he's bothering me?"

For him, this 2 & 2 seems to be escaping him.

I saw on Facebook where she got a new job, so I was browsing her page to see what happened, and got hit by some doozies.

"The felony was dropped. He got a misdemeanor. I was civil. I told our truths. I feel like I am being punished. He wants nothing to do with me. I saved him! Pbft" I'm sure dressing like an idiot had nothing to do with that.

"I need a support person..not someone that tells me thie life is worse than mine all the time...making me feel like I'm unimportant." This one's not as crazy, just pitiful.

And the best one: "Some people just can't understand normal thinking..."

This has nothing to do with the cousin. I just saw an old friend posted this on Facebook:

"Know whats an eye-opener? Coming home early from work to discover your wife and her lover on the couch, with your 3 year old not 2 feet away and entirely nauseous over what he sees his mother doing, not with Daddy. Anybody got anything smart to say about my posting "private" business online? bring it!"

The best part? The guy his wife was cheating on him with was a friend, and he replied to the post! Mostly with, "Let's talk about it," stuff.

Uh... not much to talk about there, I'd think. It all seems fairly self-explanatory.

Ooh, the wife replied! At least she didn't say, "Let's talk about it." Instead she said he's full of crap.

Hmm. If the wife responded with the crap remark after the supposed guy she was cheating with said let's talk about it, who do you tend to believe a little more? Now obviously, only those people were involved and there are a few sides to the story. But that should be a good one.

I'm so glad the Jerry Springer moments in my life usually don't involve me.

In today's episode of Springer Facebook, we've got another friend of the wife's chiming in: "Make it clear what she was doen. she was watchen a ****en movie. not doen him. and keep ur damn hands off of her. ur not so inocent either."

I must say, the chimer-inner doesn't lend a lot of credibility to the wife in the matter anyway... maybe if she went with "doin' " as opposed to "doen".

Wow. Back to this thread's namesake:

"The system is taking my husband out of my home and moving him back to his father's house. I feel.....sick."

But wait, it gets better.

One of her friends said this:
"Sorry to hear that, at least he won't be underage for too long and once he is of age they can't do anything..."

Here's T.C.E.S.C.'s explaination:
"Well, in short, his probation officer doesn't think that our relationship is legit, even with his father backing him up at the appointment. The choice was for Jacob to move back to his father's home or his father and Jacob would have to go to jail/boy school.

I'm planning on looking into the laws, going to the ND Law Library, compiling cases that have already been to court that have anything remotely to do with this to prove harrassment and more, hiring an attorney, getting family/friend statements, collecting the homework/tests that Jacob's completed that were graded on a perspective curve, putting together all the drawings/writings he has done here (to prove he's in a great environment, healing and learning), putting the deed to my house in our names, and more to get ALL this BULL**** handled correctly, per the United States Constitution and the actual LAW of our county, city, and state. The probation officer may not wanna be a probation officer anymore after this is all finished and done.

I guess this is where ya'll ask me more questions. lol

****in' A, man. Doesn't the Universe know how much this family is already going through? This WIFE isn't gonna sit waiting for her husband to come home. My man didn't sign up for the Army. This is America. They're splitting up the wrong family, let me tell you!!!!"

Another one of her friends:
"How old is he?"

T.C.E.S.C:
"16

And the icing on the cake... Today is our 1 month anniversary of our marriage. =*( "

By the way, she's 32.

In the interest of full disclosure, while we waited until I was 18 to officially start dating, I was actually still 17 when Brian (just turned 30) started seeing each other. But, first, we were both totally into each other before we knew each other's ages. I thought he was 10 years younger, he thought I was 10 years older, and we had to reevaluate once we knew. And like I said, we more or less waited until I was of age, then we dated for over a year before we moved in together, and then we lived together another year before we got engaged (and I asked him), and then we waited until I was 22 before we married. This year will be our 10th anniversary, and I still don't regret it.

But I think we're the exception. I certainly wasn't half his age, in high school (I graduated early), on probation, and marrying him!

And apparently married?  (Doubt it's legally though.)

Who would allow a 16 year old to be married to a 32 year old? What parent do you know that is going to sign away parental rights and give permission to be married?

Well, the kid's (and I do mean child) on probation, so I'm assuming it's not that great of a parental figure to begin with. That, or he just wants rid of him. In a very rare case, I could see it if she had the better means to take care of him, but she's not even working right now. And has got 3 kids of her own. I think the oldest might even be middle school aged. I don't know if she has custody of them though, she didn't used to.

Before this, the thought did cross my mind, "Wow, he's kind of cute, how'd she get him?" That was when I figured he was a twenty something with a baby face. Now... ew.
