I am blown away.
There is this 15 year old girl my love and I know, and in fact she’s here on Xanga (but I’m keeping her anonymous in this post). I know her because my love took her and her family in for a bit, until the father and his girlfriend (and their two babies) got to be just too much — wrecking the house, the hysterical girlfriend accusing my love of lusting after her loser husband, etc. There were several final straws and at one point my love had to kick them out, but she let the teen girl stay.
Let’s just call this girl Anna.
So the father finally comes to collect Anna, who begs my love to let her stay, and so my love gets CPS in on the act. Long story short, everything blows up, Anna gets taken away anyway, and she’s gone to live with her mother.
Six months later we hear from Anna. Her mother left her alone saying she’d be back in a week, and was gone for over two months. Came back briefly and left again, leaving no money, nothing. Anna had to sell possessions to survive and finally received an eviction notice. Mother is still gone, whereabouts unknown.
In desperation Anna calls her loser father, who — by the way — has known all about Anna being alone and penniless for two months. Loser father grudgingly sends his new girlfriend across state lines to collect her, and now new girlfriend is taking care of her.
Meanwhile loser father has two babies with old girlfriend, who he’s abandoned.
And here I am realizing exactly why some people grow up thinking life sucks.
Beyond that, my patience had dropped to zero for other kids who — especially compared to this — have no real problems, but think their life sucks.
They need a serious reality check.
