Back to visitation order

I thought I could be civil and work around my ex's schedule so he can see his son.  All I have asked of him is to let me know a time to pick him up and drop him off.  He's never done it and I've let it pass; for my son's sake.  I've had enough, it's 8:10 and my son is not home yet.  He needs to get bathed and put to sleep early; he has school.  I asked ex to bathe him and the fucker won't do it.  I'm starting to see this as being disrespectful towards me.  Every time I nag at him about the hour and letting me know at what time he plans to drop off my son, he gets all butt hurt and starts threatening me.  I can't do it anymore, back to the visitation order.  He's not getting his way anymore.

Good. Not your job to make it easier for him. I'd do the same.

 Hey, you tried. If he can't show some respect back your way, it's not necessary to keep accomodating him and his rudeness.

you were being mature and trying to work with him, if he cant do the same then his loss. I dont blame you at all for going back to the visitation order.

It is best for your son.  It will keep him on the routine that you have set for him which will aid him in school.  Glad you are making a stand.  If he keeps getting threatening, take the next steps.

Does he even want to see his kid? Sounds like your son is a big burden on him

I wonder the same thing. He sees him 4 times out of the month. He will even pick him up late during the day because he had "chores." He says yes, but I think he doesn't want to be around.

And keep in mind that he'll probably gladly blame you for keeping his son from him and he'll tell anyone who will listen.
