Last night I kinda got into it with my daughters mom. See she seems to think that I should give her an extra $500 in child support just because she asked me for it. I don't think I have to pay anymore then I've been paying the last 3 years or so. see when we went to our custody hearing I didn't fight for joint custody (which I now know was a dumbass move) I just wanted to give her 1 less thing to threaten me with. Before that I paid her what she asked for, as in "How much do you want?" She said $$$ and I said ok. I figured that was the adult way to handle things. Custody court was just to get it in writing. We even told the judge that we already agreed on an amount. It was all nice and easy, were 2 adults we should be able to work these things out.
Then she started hitting a rough patch, her bills started adding up, the car had some problems (it's my car by the way, I let her drive it all she has to do is gas and maintenance) that she didn't have the cash to fix. I refuse to fix them because I have my own shyt to worry about. So she gets mad and starts talking about she wants more money. I tell her I don't have it, she doesn't seems to care. She's out for herself. It's not like my daughter needs anything, I buy shoes and clothes and feed her dinner most nights. The baby is a spoiled child. In her eyes I owe her the money and I should just give it up because she has been being nice to me all these years. I don't wanna get into the whole story but her being nice and me owing her anything are definitely not the case. So anyway last night she tells me I have till 9am to give her $200...... I kinda chuckle and say well i'm not going to have it so she doesn't have to wait. My guess is this morning she will be heading to the courthouse to file some papers to get more child support. This time around I think I'ma go ahead and go for joint custody. 2009 is shaping up to be an ugly year, I hate court.. it gives me anxiety.
