She Threw Him Out!


Angela Bassett in Waiting to Exhale

Some of you may remember the woman who wrote in about her boyfriend’s out of control son. Her boyfriend had moved in with her and would have his son every weekend. This poor woman was actually dreading her days off on Saturday and Sunday. I’m so glad she decided to throw him out. No more drama! She can finally have peace! Well, I just received a nice email from her, and wanted to share it:

Dear Miss A,
Thank you for your advice! I wrote to you just recently about the problem that I was having with my boyfriend problem child. Things did get worse. He decided that since his dead beat brother don’t take care of one of his many kids that he was going to jump in and help. That’s fine if he want to get to know his nephew, and I was ok with that. He is a pretty good kid.

To my suprise this was becoming a weekly thing, and he was starting to act like he was obligated. I had no peace at all on my days off. I tried to explain to him that he was being inconsiderate. The weekends are my days off too and I should be able to enjoy them. Also his nephew had a sister (no relations to my boyfriend), and he decided to also have her to on the weekends. Every week he would pick these kids up spend money he doesn’t even have!

I tried to explain to him that his nephew’s mother was taken his kindness for weakness. She was not even considerate to give the kids their own spending money. To top that off, his son’s birthday was just recent and his nephews mother didn’t even buy him a gift. Also several times when I was with him when he picked up his nephew I notice that his nephew mother would never even acknowledge me. But she had a nerve to ask my boyfriend to take her food shopping.

That was enough for me! It’s bad enough I was putting up with his bad son and now this. I realize I was becoming very depressed because of this. I told him he had to leave, what a relief for me. By the way, I am also the one who also wrote to you about my boyfriend talking about me to his co-worker .  

Thank you,
