  • Noone said it was his problem that the child is sick....the fact is the child is sick and needs to be seen by a doctor. Unless he is unable to get off of work, fears losing his job/pay for the day, than he should atleast try and go with you to the doctor.

  • I believe you did the right thing, you also should have hit him in the head with a frying pan in hopes of knocking some sense into him!

  • I would be laughing at him while he called HIS doctor to get my foot surgically removed from his butt. I would not tolerate it at all...

  • honestly it depends. if it were my husband i would probably be mad and tell him about it later. if it were my boyfriend i would probably be mad and leave him alone for a while so he could get a clue. if he is an ex and the father of my child probably nothing, just not disclose anything else to him unless he asked.

  • I asked him at 10am, he didn't have to work until 4pm. The appointment was at 11am. Thankfully it was nice out so I walked. He has no excuse not to take us.

  • I say you did the right thing. He clearly doesn't care about his child so why would waste your time caring about him.

  • So you are seperated from him? And you asked him to give you a ride to the doctor? And he refused to do it? Next time he want to see his child or keep the child for the weekend. Say no.

  • Well Good for you, he is the father and is 50% responsible for the baby as you are and the nerve of him to say it's your problem, I think I would have left too and unless he is willing to help you then I wouldn't come back.
    He is all about himself and there is more to a relationship outside of the sex....Good luck
