My DS's father has been out of work for close to 3 years. He was receiving unemployment up until January of this year. In that time, he has worked odd jobs. I have even given him some work for my company making pretty good money. As of last month he has started a new job. While he was on unemployment I did not receive my full child support payment and since he stopped receiving it he has barely given me anything. I have been more than understanding about all this. He is a good father so I cut him some slack. All the while, daycare is being paid, insurance/medicine/doctor and dentist visits, clothes, food, karate class, - by me.
I got a call from him last Friday because when he got paid, they took the full child support payment out of his check, He was seriously upset and pretty much asked me to give him back more than 1/2 the money! Oh yes. You read that right.
I told him that the money they took is the money he owes. I do not have to give him anything back! He has never once offered to watch our son after school so that I do not have to pay for daycare, he has never asked if I needed anything at the house for our son, his attitude has simply been, when he is with me, he is my responsibility so I better do what I have to do to provide for him.
This man has littereally asked me everyday if I have gotten the money because he thinks I owe him some of it back because as he told me "that money is already spent!" Spent one what? Daycare? Insurance? nope because that comes out of my pocket.
I mean the nerve!!!!!
