Speaker:

Joe.

Speaker:

truly the first live in-person and by the

Speaker:

asshole.

Speaker:

We should do that.

Speaker:

We should prep our guests better and be like bringing them by the asshole

Speaker:

story and not just ask them on the spot.

Speaker:

but we'll, we'll move on to the, first Reddit EMI, the

Speaker:

asshole

Speaker:

story.

Speaker:

Let's do it.

Speaker:

So am I the asshole for serving my husband's family, Mac and cheese

Speaker:

for

Speaker:

dinner?

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

would say

Speaker:

I would say no.

Speaker:

Mac and

Speaker:

cheese is a delicious.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

And you can make it like

Speaker:

more, I guess,

Speaker:

fancy.

Speaker:

Oh, I don't,

Speaker:

but I enjoy

Speaker:

it.

Speaker:

but.

Speaker:

There's a, this like a, I wouldn't say chain, but there's like a restaurant

Speaker:

with like two locations here in Houston.

Speaker:

That's

Speaker:

straight up only Mac and

Speaker:

cheese.

Speaker:

Oh, that sounds amazing.

Speaker:

That's

Speaker:

Jess Mac.

Speaker:

They got sued by McDonald's which gave them more

Speaker:

clout actually.

Speaker:

Oh,

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

love

Speaker:

that that's sick.

Speaker:

McDonald's should just buy them and then put them

Speaker:

in

Speaker:

all

Speaker:

of their restaurants.

Speaker:

Please

Speaker:

know.

Speaker:

Wait, what then it'd be available to everyone.

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

no, we don't want McDonald's to have more money.

Speaker:

Do

Speaker:

we?

Speaker:

No,

Speaker:

No, that's true.

Speaker:

Actually

Speaker:

me, the guy who fights against

Speaker:

capitalism, every episode,

Speaker:

one that gets mad at me for bringing up positive

Speaker:

Amazon

Speaker:

news.

Speaker:

We

Speaker:

can't,

Speaker:

this

Speaker:

is what, Maggie's does to me, it makes me

Speaker:

weak.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

Available Mac and cheese at every corner.

Speaker:

I'm down for that.

Speaker:

But, uh, so hopping into the story, she goes on to say, my, and then in brackets,

Speaker:

Asian and I in brackets, American welcomed our first born four weeks ago.

Speaker:

your weight, I'm very confused.

Speaker:

you said my bracket,

Speaker:

Asian,

Speaker:

my husband.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

cool.

Speaker:

That wasn't.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

Sorry.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

my Asian husband and I,

Speaker:

American

Speaker:

I don't know It's w

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

that's that's okay.

Speaker:

I was going to hop on this because I was like, that's not a race.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Cause I'm I'm American.

Speaker:

and Asian.

Speaker:

Wow.

Speaker:

It's got

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

crazy.

Speaker:

wild.

Speaker:

You can be

Speaker:

both.

Speaker:

So not on a great foot to start things off, so she says, we welcomed

Speaker:

our first born four weeks ago.

Speaker:

The baby is healthy, but I'm exhausted.

Speaker:

Haven't fixed my hair, barely able to shower and cannot sleep.

Speaker:

My husband's family has been pressuring us

Speaker:

to visit, to meet the baby.

Speaker:

I tried to hold them off as much as I could, but yesterday I was surprised to

Speaker:

find them

Speaker:

standing on the porch.

Speaker:

Turn

Speaker:

turns out my husband invited

Speaker:

them

Speaker:

for dinner

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Without telling

Speaker:

no,

Speaker:

Oh, I would be so mad.

Speaker:

my wife gets mad at me if I like invite dudes that don't care.

Speaker:

If the house is.

Speaker:

she'll be

Speaker:

like, wait,

Speaker:

to clean, like, the baseboards, like everything in the house

Speaker:

before people

Speaker:

come.

Speaker:

I'm like guys that are here.

Speaker:

Like that honestly would not notice.

Speaker:

She's like 30 minute notice.

Speaker:

I'm going to kill you.

Speaker:

And I'm like, honestly,

Speaker:

yeah, there's probably on

Speaker:

me.

Speaker:

Yeah, I do the quick sweep, put the dishes away.

Speaker:

I'm like, I

Speaker:

house looks

Speaker:

clean

Speaker:

then.

Speaker:

and I'm like,

Speaker:

Not, so, she says I was embarrassed and felt like I wasn't ready for

Speaker:

visitors because the house was a mess.

Speaker:

Y'all

Speaker:

can I get a

Speaker:

y'all

Speaker:

Sean from

Speaker:

a Texan,

Speaker:

You're doing a good

Speaker:

yell.

Speaker:

but

Speaker:

I wanted

Speaker:

to hear you.

Speaker:

say it

Speaker:

Oh, okay.

Speaker:

Y'all

Speaker:

we go.

Speaker:

Thank you.

Speaker:

he's a professional

Speaker:

Asian cowboy.

Speaker:

Asian cowboy.

Speaker:

Cowboys, a race now.

Speaker:

anyway, my husband sat with them while I fed my son.

Speaker:

Then later I asked my husband, if we should order takeout for dinner,

Speaker:

he said no,

Speaker:

because his parents would find

Speaker:

this rude

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

unwelcome.

Speaker:

he suggested that I go inside the kitchen and prepare something.

Speaker:

Anything as long as it's

Speaker:

homemade.

Speaker:

no,

Speaker:

no,

Speaker:

No,

Speaker:

no,

Speaker:

no,

Speaker:

bro.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

Four weeks.

Speaker:

For

Speaker:

She's She's four weeks removed from pushing a human

Speaker:

through her

Speaker:

body.

Speaker:

And

Speaker:

just

Speaker:

your baby.

Speaker:

You get off your ass and fucking make some

Speaker:

shit,

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Or why can't you get takeout.

Speaker:

And also he didn't even tell her it was happening.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

if he asks him for dinner,

Speaker:

he

Speaker:

should

Speaker:

planned

Speaker:

the dinner

Speaker:

anyways

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

gave her

Speaker:

notice.

Speaker:

Exactly.

Speaker:

I can get what, maybe it is like a cultural thing.

Speaker:

Like that's not my culture, but you know, I don't know.

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

Asians, a

Speaker:

vast

Speaker:

countries are a continent, but I mean, I can get it if like home cooked meal

Speaker:

is required, but if that's the case,

Speaker:

You

Speaker:

do it?

Speaker:

You knew, you knew that was a rule and you invited them without telling you what.

Speaker:

you cook the fucking

Speaker:

meal.

Speaker:

Also like she's four weeks with

Speaker:

like having this

Speaker:

four week old.

Speaker:

Like, I feel like most in-laws are families.

Speaker:

they would be bringing

Speaker:

the cooking, like,

Speaker:

in-laws they would say like, Hey,

Speaker:

will come for dinner to see the baby, but

Speaker:

we'll

Speaker:

bring

Speaker:

dinner

Speaker:

just cause so you don't have to.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

or be totally okay with ordering in like,

Speaker:

I think when my sisters gave birth, my mom.

Speaker:

Came with food.

Speaker:

And like, my sisters lived out of state.

Speaker:

She like

Speaker:

traveled to the, and just help to do like stuff around the house

Speaker:

while my sister like, recovered

Speaker:

because

Speaker:

no,

Speaker:

exactly.

Speaker:

That's

Speaker:

a you

Speaker:

mom

Speaker:

too.

Speaker:

My mom would make

Speaker:

like Meals

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

you could freeze

Speaker:

and then like give them to her so she could keep them and then

Speaker:

just

Speaker:

make

Speaker:

them

Speaker:

easy.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

You, you try and help

Speaker:

not hinder

Speaker:

yeah, not put fucking more stress on the.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

unfortunately it gets much worse, so we're

Speaker:

going

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

keep

Speaker:

going.

Speaker:

The

Speaker:

beginning.

Speaker:

I said I was fine then went and made some Mac and cheese.

Speaker:

The reason I prepared this meal is because of how easy it is, once I served

Speaker:

the family, my husband's mom looked

Speaker:

at me and was appalled.

Speaker:

She asked

Speaker:

if I really found it appropriate to serve her and her family,

Speaker:

Mac and

Speaker:

cheese,

Speaker:

I asked why not?

Speaker:

And she went on a rant about how disrespectful this was and that

Speaker:

I clearly have no experience in what is right and wrong

Speaker:

when

Speaker:

it

Speaker:

comes to

Speaker:

hosting.

Speaker:

Uh, she didn't even

Speaker:

know

Speaker:

she was hosting.

Speaker:

She didn't even know

Speaker:

she was going

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

be hosting.

Speaker:

that's when the husband needs to come to her aid and say, listen, I

Speaker:

actually didn't give her any notice.

Speaker:

she's exhausted.

Speaker:

I'm going to make a bold prediction and assume that's not

Speaker:

what

Speaker:

happens.

Speaker:

John's a smart man.

Speaker:

I'm sure.

Speaker:

Sienna also assume that's

Speaker:

what

Speaker:

happened.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I also see she's saying what should happen, what a

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

What any normal

Speaker:

person

Speaker:

Exactly.

Speaker:

I said, excuse me, who said, I signed up to host and expected visit from them.

Speaker:

And she took it as if I didn't want them there.

Speaker:

Her husband said that they were just there to finally see the baby that I've kept

Speaker:

them

Speaker:

seeing for an entire.

Speaker:

that that's a whole month of his life.

Speaker:

They

Speaker:

quote unquote

Speaker:

missed out

Speaker:

on.

Speaker:

We had

Speaker:

an

Speaker:

and they decided

Speaker:

to go

Speaker:

home.

Speaker:

my husband said that deciding to serve his family, Mac and cheese was more offensive

Speaker:

than serving

Speaker:

them

Speaker:

nothing

Speaker:

at

Speaker:

all.

Speaker:

Come on.

Speaker:

for that?

Speaker:

Oh

Speaker:

my

Speaker:

God.

Speaker:

I told him I was too exhausted to cook their traditional fees that I was forced

Speaker:

to learn from

Speaker:

his mother.

Speaker:

He took offense and said that I was being mean and disrespectful towards not

Speaker:

his family,

Speaker:

but his

Speaker:

culture.

Speaker:

I went inside the bedroom to stay with my son.

Speaker:

My husband stayed on the phone with his family for an hour.

Speaker:

Then kept giving me a cold shoulder and refuse to eat.

Speaker:

What I cook in support of

Speaker:

family

Speaker:

Oh, he's on

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

hunger

Speaker:

strike.

Speaker:

It's fucking gone to you out here.

Speaker:

I understand how some guests might find it offensive, especially as family, but I was

Speaker:

just trying to make quick homemade meal.

Speaker:

Like my husband wanted what's wrong with Mac and cheese?

Speaker:

Am I

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

asshole?

Speaker:

No,

Speaker:

not

Speaker:

at

Speaker:

all.

Speaker:

Good for her for standing up.

Speaker:

Everyone's the asshole in this situation.

Speaker:

The husband needed to communicate to his parents that listen, it's, she's tired.

Speaker:

Like Absolutely come over see the baby, but it might not

Speaker:

be like a full blown meal.

Speaker:

Maybe.

Speaker:

Unfortunately he communicated that it would

Speaker:

be, so there was a lot of misunderstanding, but at the

Speaker:

same time, like they all need

Speaker:

to be

Speaker:

way more

Speaker:

understanding

Speaker:

than.

Speaker:

listen,

Speaker:

like she just had a baby and she just found out about it.

Speaker:

Like, I have to say the husband's the

Speaker:

worst in

Speaker:

this situation.

Speaker:

And

Speaker:

then parents need to be more understanding, I get them

Speaker:

Wanting

Speaker:

to see

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

baby,

Speaker:

like,

Speaker:

to be fair.

Speaker:

Like if I had a child, like, I'd want my in-laws to see as

Speaker:

soon

Speaker:

as

Speaker:

I was

Speaker:

able.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

But I wouldn't just spring

Speaker:

them on you.

Speaker:

no, not at all.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I'd be like, Hey, my

Speaker:

parents are coming two weeks

Speaker:

from

Speaker:

now.

Speaker:

Yeah, exactly.

Speaker:

And that's the thing, like how do I just ridiculous.

Speaker:

I don't know.

Speaker:

If I can sneak attack the in-laws on her.

Speaker:

And it was like, oh, on top of the surprise, you didn't clean the house,

Speaker:

but you do have to cook a fucking

Speaker:

four course

Speaker:

meal.

Speaker:

they he didn't mention anything about the host being domestic.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

brownie

Speaker:

points.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

He's 100% of the biggest asshole in this situation.

Speaker:

it's not hard

Speaker:

to see

Speaker:

he

Speaker:

gets

Speaker:

it

Speaker:

from

Speaker:

though

Speaker:

And I get it a cultural thing.

Speaker:

Like maybe there that's when they, when you ha

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

not sure,

Speaker:

but like maybe when you have.

Speaker:

people over to host it's expected like a four course

Speaker:

but

Speaker:

like

Speaker:

this

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

special

Speaker:

circumstance.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I think, I think culture

Speaker:

can take a

Speaker:

back

Speaker:

seat

Speaker:

when

Speaker:

there's

Speaker:

There's the

Speaker:

mother,

Speaker:

you know

Speaker:

when a mother's just had a baby and is trying to just,

Speaker:

keep both of themselves alive.

Speaker:

that's her job basically is to keep herself and the baby.

Speaker:

Uh, and this, she has this dipshit child.

Speaker:

She also has to babysit called

Speaker:

her

Speaker:

husband's.

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

mean, I just had to wonder

Speaker:

what the relationship

Speaker:

was before

Speaker:

that like, was she always hosting the parents and having

Speaker:

to do this huge meal for them.

Speaker:

Was the husband like supportive of the parents all the time.

Speaker:

Like, I can't imagine this as

Speaker:

out of

Speaker:

nowhere

Speaker:

and we

Speaker:

touch on this a lot.

Speaker:

actually, with the one with Chris, we had a couple.

Speaker:

Where it's like, why did you marry this person?

Speaker:

If

Speaker:

this

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

what they're like?

Speaker:

And I honestly, I have no answer.

Speaker:

I mean, it's, I like you love parts of people and you try to accept other parts.

Speaker:

And at the same time, you're, you can become trapped in relationships,

Speaker:

like

Speaker:

in a healthy relationship.

Speaker:

And

Speaker:

it's, it's one story.

Speaker:

And like, maybe he's a great guy rest of the time, maybe.

Speaker:

the hunger strike

Speaker:

thing

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

that's hilarious,

Speaker:

That'll

Speaker:

show her.

Speaker:

yeah,

Speaker:

it's like, great.

Speaker:

I don't have to cook for you.

Speaker:

Amazing

Speaker:

less food to make

Speaker:

more

Speaker:

Mac

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

cheese

Speaker:

for me.

Speaker:

but maybe he feels like afraid of his mom or something like that.

Speaker:

And, so this is a situation where maybe he's stressed, they're

Speaker:

meeting the baby the first time and he's, could be a good person, just

Speaker:

maybe a bad person in this

Speaker:

scenario,

Speaker:

but it's a

Speaker:

pretty.

Speaker:

sick.

Speaker:

but I

Speaker:

mean, this scenario lasted multiple hours.

Speaker:

Like you should be able to like

Speaker:

calm

Speaker:

down and

Speaker:

be like, oh yeah, I really should, uh, defend my wife and

Speaker:

stop talking on the phone with

Speaker:

my family and,

Speaker:

Hunger

Speaker:

striking.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

And hunger striking and letting them tell me my wife is disrespectful.

Speaker:

Like,

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

don't know.

Speaker:

so I think we can, 100% say you're not the asshole.

Speaker:

your husband's an asshole.

Speaker:

It's family sounds like, kind

Speaker:

an

Speaker:

so, yeah.

Speaker:

I'm sorry.

Speaker:

You

Speaker:

have

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

deal

Speaker:

that.

Speaker:

I say

Speaker:

that a lot

Speaker:

at

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

of a lot

Speaker:

of these stories,

Speaker:

unfortunately.

Speaker:

hopefully,

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

just

Speaker:

talk

Speaker:

to him and just, just, express

Speaker:

how you're

Speaker:

feeling and the stress you're on.

Speaker:

I mean, he should

Speaker:

understand,

Speaker:

but men are dumb as we've learned, so you sometimes just have to be like, Hey, this

Speaker:

is what's up.

Speaker:

And maybe

Speaker:

he'll

Speaker:

be like, oh yeah,

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

an idiot.

Speaker:

that's

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

best

Speaker:

case

Speaker:

scenario.

Speaker:

I wonder if the best, like, I really wish everybody updated these all the time

Speaker:

because the husband just must read the

Speaker:

comments And be like,

Speaker:

oh yeah.

Speaker:

yeah,

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Like,

Speaker:

true.

Speaker:

That's true.

Speaker:

I fucked up, I fucked that

Speaker:

shit

Speaker:

out for

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

wondering if someone has like wrote one of these and then seen our tech talks or

Speaker:

something and it's just like, oh shit,

Speaker:

that's me.

Speaker:

I've made a big.

Speaker:

Wow.

Speaker:

I'm getting this steroid on Reddit and now also on

Speaker:

ticktock.

Speaker:

Oh, yeah, exactly.

Speaker:

all right.

Speaker:

With that, we

Speaker:

will

Speaker:

move on

Speaker:

our next,

Speaker:

am

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

the asshole?

Speaker:

So am I the asshole for taking my daughter's

Speaker:

bedroom

Speaker:

away

Speaker:

giving it to my son?

Speaker:

Hm.

Speaker:

Yes.

Speaker:

Without context.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Do you have a little

Speaker:

sibling

Speaker:

Sienna?

Speaker:

I have a younger brother and an older

Speaker:

sisters.

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

middle

Speaker:

child.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

imagine

Speaker:

Luca.

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

mean,

Speaker:

it'd be weird.

Speaker:

Our room, our rooms growing up are beside each other.

Speaker:

There's really like, they're both very similar rooms, so

Speaker:

I don't understand why about

Speaker:

whatever,

Speaker:

but

Speaker:

yeah,

Speaker:

so,

Speaker:

I, a 32 year old male have a daughter.

Speaker:

Uh, 14

Speaker:

year old

Speaker:

female

Speaker:

from a previous relationship, I have full custody

Speaker:

of

Speaker:

her

Speaker:

and her

Speaker:

mom

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

not

Speaker:

involved

Speaker:

in

Speaker:

her

Speaker:

life.

Speaker:

five years ago, I married my wife, Nina, a 31 year old

Speaker:

female.

Speaker:

We tried to have a child, but couldn't, we went to the doctor and

Speaker:

it turned out I can't have any more kids due to some complications.

Speaker:

So we decided to use a sperm donor and the result

Speaker:

was

Speaker:

my

Speaker:

son mark,

Speaker:

was

Speaker:

a few

Speaker:

months

Speaker:

ago.

Speaker:

That's awesome.

Speaker:

The

Speaker:

problem started when Nina got pregnant Harper.

Speaker:

Wasn't happy about it.

Speaker:

When

Speaker:

mark was born,

Speaker:

things

Speaker:

got

Speaker:

worse

Speaker:

before this Harper and I used to spend two days a week together, just the two

Speaker:

of us without my wife, but after mark was born, I couldn't do that anymore.

Speaker:

I can't just leave my wife alone for two days a week with a newborn.

Speaker:

And

Speaker:

Harper

Speaker:

has been very angry.

Speaker:

The main

Speaker:

problem started three days ago, Nina and I decided to make a nursery

Speaker:

for mark instead of having them in our bedroom for multiple reasons,

Speaker:

our home has four bedrooms, two master bedrooms

Speaker:

on one

Speaker:

side

Speaker:

and two bedrooms

Speaker:

on the

Speaker:

other

Speaker:

side,

Speaker:

living fucking

Speaker:

large hero.

Speaker:

My God.

Speaker:

What was

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

down payment

Speaker:

on that?

Speaker:

How's this come with two

Speaker:

masters.

Speaker:

I know that's weird, right?

Speaker:

it a duplex?

Speaker:

And then you just fucking broke down.

Speaker:

The

Speaker:

wall are

Speaker:

It's that family, uh, you

Speaker:

weren't even on that episode.

Speaker:

Nevermind.

Speaker:

No, I think I was

Speaker:

the, couple

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

shared a

Speaker:

house.

Speaker:

a duplex and had

Speaker:

a door in the middle.

Speaker:

yeah, that was weird.

Speaker:

But if it

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I guess maybe if you're rich, there

Speaker:

are two master

Speaker:

bedrooms

Speaker:

in

Speaker:

your house.

Speaker:

so, one of the master rooms is ours and the other one is Harper's.

Speaker:

It was very hard for Nina and I to go to the other side of the house multiple

Speaker:

times a night when mark wakes up.

Speaker:

So I asked Harper to pack her stuff and go to the

Speaker:

one

Speaker:

of the

Speaker:

other bedrooms.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

we could give

Speaker:

her room

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

mark

Speaker:

At first everything seemed all right.

Speaker:

She said, okay.

Speaker:

And went to her room and started packing, but less than an hour, my brother showed

Speaker:

up at our home

Speaker:

asking for her.

Speaker:

She had called

Speaker:

them and asked

Speaker:

him to take her.

Speaker:

She came out of her room with her stuff, told me you can give it to

Speaker:

your

Speaker:

now

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

left with

Speaker:

my brother.

Speaker:

I told her she could only go for one

Speaker:

night, but it's been three days and

Speaker:

she's

Speaker:

not back.

Speaker:

And won't

Speaker:

talk to

Speaker:

me.

Speaker:

That's kind of weird of the brother to dislike, not talk

Speaker:

to the parents and be like

Speaker:

the surprise.

Speaker:

I'm here to pick up your daughter.

Speaker:

She's going to sleep at my house now.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

So, I'm receiving calls from my family, all calling me an asshole and other names.

Speaker:

I don't trust their judgment they very clearly favor Harper.

Speaker:

She was the first grandchild in our family and everyone's favorite.

Speaker:

They're trying to accept mark as my son, but I could see that

Speaker:

they haven't been able to yet.

Speaker:

So I decided to post here and get some unbiased opinions.

Speaker:

MIV.

Speaker:

Oh, that sounds tough.

Speaker:

This one's tough.

Speaker:

There's not like a big asshole.

Speaker:

Like I understand the, the new wife wanting him around to be around the sun.

Speaker:

Like your new sign.

Speaker:

you can't leave her alone for like two straight days.

Speaker:

I get that.

Speaker:

And I understand

Speaker:

wanting a bedroom

Speaker:

near them.

Speaker:

They need that for safety reasons and everything like that.

Speaker:

and I

Speaker:

understand

Speaker:

Harper

Speaker:

being

Speaker:

hurt

Speaker:

by

Speaker:

that.

Speaker:

Like

Speaker:

there's

Speaker:

like,

Speaker:

I don't like, and to be fair, we don't know the relationship between.

Speaker:

The stepmom, I

Speaker:

guess in Harper.

Speaker:

I hope

Speaker:

they were trying

Speaker:

sounds

Speaker:

family.

Speaker:

oh,

Speaker:

sorry.

Speaker:

yeah,

Speaker:

I thought you meant the

Speaker:

no, no, no, The like the stepmom, like I hope they have a good relationship.

Speaker:

Maybe they don't and maybe this is where's that stemming from, but , that's tough.

Speaker:

I don't know if he is the asshole, not , I think he needs to try a little bit harder

Speaker:

to maybe communicate and maybe you can

Speaker:

dedicate

Speaker:

one

Speaker:

day

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

week

Speaker:

now.

Speaker:

Like.

Speaker:

my brother-in-law

Speaker:

went back

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

work

Speaker:

after

Speaker:

like

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

few weeks.

Speaker:

And so my sister was alone with a

Speaker:

baby quite a bit.

Speaker:

So I mean, like

Speaker:

it's doable.

Speaker:

I understand why you want them

Speaker:

there, but maybe

Speaker:

compromise.

Speaker:

Yeah, it's a lot of changes.

Speaker:

And how

Speaker:

old did they say the baby was?

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

they say at all A few

Speaker:

months.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I mean, that's still a lot of change in a short amount of time.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

think

Speaker:

he's

Speaker:

of

Speaker:

an

Speaker:

asshole.

Speaker:

your daughter lost her mom.

Speaker:

And so you're the only thing she really has.

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

mean,

Speaker:

has her step-mom

Speaker:

obviously,

Speaker:

but

Speaker:

it's

Speaker:

not

Speaker:

quite the same.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Well,

Speaker:

it

Speaker:

might,

Speaker:

it

Speaker:

might be that, but

Speaker:

it might, it's also like,

Speaker:

you're her father.

Speaker:

You're all she has.

Speaker:

Quote unquote.

Speaker:

and so she, maybe she feels like you're turning your back on her.

Speaker:

abandoning her just like her mom did and that's traumatizing

Speaker:

for

Speaker:

her.

Speaker:

And,

Speaker:

I mean,

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

worst.

Speaker:

You

Speaker:

should

Speaker:

at

Speaker:

least

Speaker:

spend time with her, for sure.

Speaker:

definitely a hundred percent.

Speaker:

You should give her your time.

Speaker:

You have two kids, you made this decision.

Speaker:

She did not

Speaker:

make

Speaker:

this

Speaker:

decision.

Speaker:

You have to go.

Speaker:

give

Speaker:

50% of your attention and love to both sides.

Speaker:

I know the baby is going to be, it's going to be stressful.

Speaker:

And there's like, the baby is, you know, a lot of work.

Speaker:

but you made that decision and you've got to live with it.

Speaker:

And, if your daughter doesn't feel appreciated or loved and

Speaker:

neglected, then that's on you, man.

Speaker:

Like you gotta,

Speaker:

you

Speaker:

gotta man

Speaker:

up

Speaker:

and,

Speaker:

take responsibility

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

try

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

make

Speaker:

it

Speaker:

right

Speaker:

with.

Speaker:

with your.

Speaker:

Yeah, I think for sure, like I'm sure your new wife doesn't want to walk,

Speaker:

but I mean, maybe you have to take that responsibility and you walk to the baby.

Speaker:

You, you know, I don't know.

Speaker:

It seems how big is

Speaker:

your fucking

Speaker:

house to.

Speaker:

what I mean, like, it's gotta be pretty far for it to.

Speaker:

be like maybe

Speaker:

it

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

so

Speaker:

far that it

Speaker:

would

Speaker:

be a safety issue, like

Speaker:

having the

Speaker:

baby that

Speaker:

far,

Speaker:

but if that's the case, then you just gotta, like,

Speaker:

I don't know, like you already know your

Speaker:

daughter's pissed off cause she doesn't get

Speaker:

the two days.

Speaker:

and you haven't made any sort of compromise.

Speaker:

You kind of just cut that off and then out of the blue, you're going to be

Speaker:

like, actually you gotta fucking pack

Speaker:

your shit up.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

move out of your bedroom.

Speaker:

So here's what I would have probably tried to propose.

Speaker:

So he says there's four bedrooms, two of the bedrooms, or the

Speaker:

masters in there beside each other.

Speaker:

And then the other two are right beside each other as well.

Speaker:

So why not?

Speaker:

Why

Speaker:

not,

Speaker:

exactly.

Speaker:

Why not

Speaker:

move your bedroom to

Speaker:

one of those bedrooms and then just have

Speaker:

them just temporary until you feel more comfortable.

Speaker:

Exactly.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

So that's

Speaker:

an option and then that way.

Speaker:

it doesn't feel

Speaker:

like

Speaker:

you're

Speaker:

cutting

Speaker:

your

Speaker:

daughter

Speaker:

out.

Speaker:

Yeah, just set up a bed and make the nursery and then like in the other

Speaker:

master bedroom, maybe, and then I can just put your bed in there too.

Speaker:

So Eugena some nights you're in there with the baby and I don't know.

Speaker:

I dunno asleep like a baby.

Speaker:

It's not right.

Speaker:

No, I agree.

Speaker:

Yeah, you don't want to sleep with the baby, but yeah, but

Speaker:

yeah, having, having that

Speaker:

separation where you're, uh, like between the two

Speaker:

beds.

Speaker:

Yeah, it makes sense.

Speaker:

But yeah, why not?

Speaker:

You move instead of making your daughter

Speaker:

make all these changes

Speaker:

in her life,

Speaker:

just

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

make

Speaker:

you

Speaker:

more comfortable.

Speaker:

with that.

Speaker:

Also, there must, there must be some kind of like beef.

Speaker:

I, it

Speaker:

sounds

Speaker:

like

Speaker:

there's beef between him and his family.

Speaker:

Cause like, if I have a good relationship with, my sister and my

Speaker:

kids, or my niece is fighting with my sister, I'm not just going to

Speaker:

fucking

Speaker:

show

Speaker:

up

Speaker:

and just pick her up and be like, stay with

Speaker:

me.

Speaker:

Like

Speaker:

has to have been a lot of things that.

Speaker:

yeah,

Speaker:

escalated.

Speaker:

I won't necessarily dunk on the brother just because I don't know

Speaker:

what he said or what she said

Speaker:

to him.

Speaker:

and he could just be being a good uncle, looking out for her.

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

agree.

Speaker:

He probably

Speaker:

shouldn't

Speaker:

like

Speaker:

he should try and get his dog like her, uh, his niece to communicate

Speaker:

with.

Speaker:

her

Speaker:

dad, but I don't know the situation on that side, but, I

Speaker:

wanted to

Speaker:

say that

Speaker:

I don't, I

Speaker:

don't

Speaker:

want it on him

Speaker:

too

Speaker:

much.

Speaker:

No,

Speaker:

That's

Speaker:

fair.

Speaker:

And

Speaker:

yeah,

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

feel

Speaker:

for

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

daughter mostly, but

Speaker:

I mean, I think the main thing was they needed to figure

Speaker:

out

Speaker:

compromise in that situation and let her

Speaker:

know that she still loved and

Speaker:

stuff

Speaker:

because

Speaker:

have guessed.

Speaker:

She

Speaker:

wasn't

Speaker:

getting.

Speaker:

that.

Speaker:

So that is it.

Speaker:

I think you're kind of an

Speaker:

asshole.

Speaker:

I don't

Speaker:

know where

Speaker:

you guys

Speaker:

stand

Speaker:

on

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

one.

Speaker:

Yeah, I'll go kind of,

Speaker:

Yeah,

Speaker:

can,

Speaker:

can come

Speaker:

back

Speaker:

from this?

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

It's yeah.

Speaker:

He's

Speaker:

not

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

dam.

Speaker:

he's not the worst

Speaker:

hassle we've

Speaker:

ever

Speaker:

had for sure.

Speaker:

not even

Speaker:

close.

Speaker:

No,

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

guy

Speaker:

before

Speaker:

was

Speaker:

way worse.

Speaker:

what

Speaker:

about

Speaker:

you, Sean?

Speaker:

You,

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

my stance is kinda just like nobody's too far.

Speaker:

removed from asshole status.

Speaker:

You know what I mean?

Speaker:

It's kinda just like take a step back and realize, you know, you did probably fuck

Speaker:

up.

Speaker:

It's a,

Speaker:

it's

Speaker:

a fuck

Speaker:

rather than actively

Speaker:

being

Speaker:

an asshole,

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

guess.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

He's more on the side of asshole.

Speaker:

The not asshole, but also

Speaker:

not too far.

Speaker:

We only

Speaker:

have two

Speaker:

judgments

Speaker:

here.

Speaker:

So it's,

Speaker:

it's very

Speaker:

difficult.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

all right.

Speaker:

so we're going to hit an ad break and then after the ad break,

Speaker:

we

Speaker:

actually have an update

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

this story.

Speaker:

Oh,

Speaker:

Oh,

Speaker:

good.

Speaker:

That is

Speaker:

exciting.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

They do love an update.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

uh, stay tuned

Speaker:

for

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

we'll be right back.

Speaker:

All

Speaker:

right.

Speaker:

We

Speaker:

are back

Speaker:

Deanna, how you hanging

Speaker:

in.

Speaker:

So good.

Speaker:

Yeah, That

Speaker:

was

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

longest

Speaker:

ad break

Speaker:

of my life

Speaker:

there so long.

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

make her

Speaker:

sit

Speaker:

here and listen

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

them.

Speaker:

all of

Speaker:

our guests,

Speaker:

Yeah, I was actually just me for 10 minutes telling you why you

Speaker:

should be paying $25 to us a month

Speaker:

Patriot.

Speaker:

no, it was just him begging magic spoon to sponsor us

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

a protein

Speaker:

here.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

This is the proteins.

Speaker:

were looking it up.

Speaker:

It looks good.

Speaker:

We talked

Speaker:

about

Speaker:

it

Speaker:

in

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

last

Speaker:

time and he asked him,

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I want to get it, but it's also like $11 a box.

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

like this cereal

Speaker:

worth.

Speaker:

And if

Speaker:

they sponsor us, we'll say that's worth

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Oh yeah.

Speaker:

Honestly.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

That's great.

Speaker:

I fucking love magic spoon guy.

Speaker:

so, I left you on a little bit of a cliffhanger, uh, as

Speaker:

I'm getting good at doing.

Speaker:

there is actually an update to the story about, the man

Speaker:

who

Speaker:

away his daughter's bedroom

Speaker:

and gave

Speaker:

it to his son.

Speaker:

So.

Speaker:

He writes in this post, he says, here's the update that I promised.

Speaker:

I realized I've messed up.

Speaker:

So I went to my brother's home and tried to get Harper back,

Speaker:

but he didn't even let me see

Speaker:

her

Speaker:

saying

Speaker:

she

Speaker:

doesn't

Speaker:

want

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

see

Speaker:

me.

Speaker:

okay.

Speaker:

which,

Speaker:

I mean, I

Speaker:

guess

Speaker:

like

Speaker:

to respect

Speaker:

wishes,

Speaker:

but

Speaker:

yeah,

Speaker:

don't

Speaker:

you can't force.

Speaker:

out a little,

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

mean,

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

guess

Speaker:

I can't force her to do anything, but it's a weird situation, I guess, for him.

Speaker:

he said he would only let

Speaker:

her

Speaker:

go

Speaker:

back.

Speaker:

If

Speaker:

one,

Speaker:

she

Speaker:

wanted

Speaker:

to go with

Speaker:

me.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

too.

Speaker:

We moved to another home, closer to their home because they

Speaker:

wanted to have Harper close

Speaker:

to them

Speaker:

to keep

Speaker:

an

Speaker:

eye

Speaker:

on

Speaker:

her

Speaker:

and make

Speaker:

sure we

Speaker:

are

Speaker:

treating her right.

Speaker:

We used to live very close to them, but when we got married at my wife

Speaker:

and my family didn't get along.

Speaker:

So we moved somewhere farther

Speaker:

away,

Speaker:

which

Speaker:

made

Speaker:

Harper

Speaker:

very

Speaker:

sad.

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

whole

Speaker:

moving

Speaker:

house.

Speaker:

That's a

Speaker:

big.

Speaker:

Well,

Speaker:

it

Speaker:

sounds

Speaker:

like

Speaker:

they

Speaker:

move

Speaker:

just

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

get

Speaker:

away

Speaker:

from

Speaker:

them.

Speaker:

For,

Speaker:

for the

Speaker:

wife

Speaker:

That's tough.

Speaker:

also living close

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

them

Speaker:

doesn't

Speaker:

mean

Speaker:

you

Speaker:

have

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

see

Speaker:

them

Speaker:

all

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

time.

Speaker:

Yeah,

Speaker:

is starting

Speaker:

true.

Speaker:

some

Speaker:

questions

Speaker:

for

Speaker:

it

Speaker:

is.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

there's

Speaker:

clearly

Speaker:

you know, maybe the stepmom doesn't treat hyper very well.

Speaker:

I mean, we can't say for sure, but it sounds like she's

Speaker:

at least doesn't get along

Speaker:

with them,

Speaker:

family,

Speaker:

which

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

awful.

Speaker:

Did they do a

Speaker:

little bit?

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I don't

Speaker:

I honestly, I don't know.

Speaker:

It's, it's a weird situation.

Speaker:

Uh, number

Speaker:

three, Harper

Speaker:

will get

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

choose which bedroom she wants

Speaker:

in our

Speaker:

house.

Speaker:

Fine.

Speaker:

Fair.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

She'll

Speaker:

probably

Speaker:

pick the

Speaker:

one

Speaker:

she

Speaker:

was

Speaker:

in

Speaker:

Are they helping

Speaker:

finance this house.

Speaker:

this

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

a,

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

That's the thing

Speaker:

like,

Speaker:

huge

Speaker:

fucker.

Speaker:

Well they sound,

Speaker:

market,

Speaker:

they sound pretty rich.

Speaker:

Okay guys.

Speaker:

I dunno.

Speaker:

They got four, Two master

Speaker:

bedrooms.

Speaker:

So.

Speaker:

and then number four, I should spend one-on-one time

Speaker:

with Harper

Speaker:

at

Speaker:

least one day

Speaker:

a week.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

That

Speaker:

one's

Speaker:

fair.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

the three of

Speaker:

the four

Speaker:

of

Speaker:

those

Speaker:

are, are

Speaker:

valid asks.

Speaker:

I think

Speaker:

the,

Speaker:

moving

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

little

Speaker:

bit

Speaker:

much like

Speaker:

job wise.

Speaker:

too.

Speaker:

Well, I

Speaker:

don't

Speaker:

know.

Speaker:

Well, we don't know

Speaker:

how

Speaker:

far

Speaker:

it is, right.

Speaker:

Maybe it's just a few

Speaker:

streets.

Speaker:

city town.

Speaker:

With the pack

Speaker:

with

Speaker:

new kid actually.

Speaker:

Yeah,

Speaker:

that's the biggest

Speaker:

Asking you to move is a Crazy.

Speaker:

Easy.

Speaker:

That's a crazy.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I don't

Speaker:

know if I'd,

Speaker:

I,

Speaker:

don't

Speaker:

think

Speaker:

I'd

Speaker:

accept

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

one.

Speaker:

We had a four,

Speaker:

I maybe make it so number two, I'd maybe switch it to, the

Speaker:

family can have Harper once a week

Speaker:

or something Like that, so that they still, you know, are in

Speaker:

her life and get to keep an eye

Speaker:

on her

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Maybe we just plan more

Speaker:

events together.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Like why, why move an entire house?

Speaker:

Insane.

Speaker:

It's like, you know, you know, he's going to say no,

Speaker:

Well, he goes on to say, I accepted

Speaker:

all

Speaker:

of

Speaker:

these

Speaker:

Wow.

Speaker:

Dang.

Speaker:

Instant.

Speaker:

I'm a dumb ass.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

had

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

let you

Speaker:

make

Speaker:

your claim

Speaker:

before I shoved it in your

Speaker:

face.

Speaker:

I appreciate it.

Speaker:

And he goes on to say, this caused a lot of problems since my wife.

Speaker:

Doesn't like some

Speaker:

of

Speaker:

those conditions,

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

guessing

Speaker:

it's

Speaker:

number

Speaker:

two,

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Which

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

fair.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

But as as the wife, I mean, I don't know, like maybe you don't, you don't

Speaker:

have to go to the hangout, but like you should be trying to Harper is

Speaker:

your

Speaker:

daughter

Speaker:

as

Speaker:

well.

Speaker:

You need to be trying to make sure she's happy.

Speaker:

I agree.

Speaker:

But

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

think

Speaker:

if

Speaker:

they,

Speaker:

I think

Speaker:

you can't,

Speaker:

but you

Speaker:

can't, you can't agree to

Speaker:

moving.

Speaker:

And I tell you

Speaker:

without

Speaker:

talking

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

your

Speaker:

wife

Speaker:

about

Speaker:

it.

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

then she'd be like,

Speaker:

Hey

Speaker:

we're

Speaker:

moving.

Speaker:

For sure.

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

had, I'm hoping that he talked to, I just assumed that that's what happened,

Speaker:

but you're right.

Speaker:

That,

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

I don't know.

Speaker:

You could

Speaker:

still

Speaker:

be

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

asshole

Speaker:

here.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

so she thinks they are not reasonable.

Speaker:

She got angry, took mark and went to

Speaker:

her parents

Speaker:

and is staying there.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

now

Speaker:

I'm also

Speaker:

receiving

Speaker:

texts

Speaker:

from my

Speaker:

in-laws

Speaker:

calling

Speaker:

me an

Speaker:

asshole.

Speaker:

right now I'm looking for a new home that is closer to my brother's home.

Speaker:

I called Harper and my brother convinced her to talk to me for once she was

Speaker:

crying the whole time telling me that she felt like I didn't want her anymore

Speaker:

hearing her cry like this really broke

Speaker:

my heart.

Speaker:

I honestly never

Speaker:

meant to hurt her after so many apologies and gifts.

Speaker:

She finally agreed to see.

Speaker:

I will go to my brother's home every day to spend time with her.

Speaker:

She has also

Speaker:

finally

Speaker:

agreed

Speaker:

to come

Speaker:

home

Speaker:

with me

Speaker:

when

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

find

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

new

Speaker:

home.

Speaker:

Uh, yeah, that's the update.

Speaker:

Sorry, there's more here, but I don't know what NC means.

Speaker:

no,

Speaker:

unlike

Speaker:

lot

Speaker:

of

Speaker:

you said my child,

Speaker:

isn't

Speaker:

going

Speaker:

NC

Speaker:

with

Speaker:

me.

Speaker:

I don't know what that

Speaker:

means.

Speaker:

I'm not a hip with the lingo,

Speaker:

And

Speaker:

see,

Speaker:

lingo.

Speaker:

I feel so old Googling.

Speaker:

What does

Speaker:

NC

Speaker:

I know

Speaker:

that's literally what Josh is doing

Speaker:

North Carolina.

Speaker:

network,

Speaker:

computer

Speaker:

I don't care.

Speaker:

convenient.

Speaker:

I have no idea what it would mean.

Speaker:

Maybe

Speaker:

they

Speaker:

live in

Speaker:

Newcastle,

Speaker:

Do you have

Speaker:

no

Speaker:

contact.

Speaker:

Is

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

what

Speaker:

it

Speaker:

would

Speaker:

mean?

Speaker:

Like not

Speaker:

going

Speaker:

no contact

Speaker:

with

Speaker:

me,

Speaker:

like

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

no

Speaker:

contact

Speaker:

order.

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

don't

Speaker:

know.

Speaker:

Oh,

Speaker:

maybe

Speaker:

I don't

Speaker:

know.

Speaker:

No class.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

sure what that

Speaker:

means,

Speaker:

but anyway,

Speaker:

he

Speaker:

wrote

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

into the end there.

Speaker:

So,

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

weird

Speaker:

ending,

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

don't

Speaker:

know if

Speaker:

I can.

Speaker:

Good one Like a little bit the daughter, Oh, I totally understand.

Speaker:

I totally understand what she's going through, but I also I'm

Speaker:

how

Speaker:

old she

Speaker:

and if it's, this

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

manipulative,

Speaker:

not

Speaker:

knowing

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

Like maybe like,

Speaker:

then obviously she's a

Speaker:

Like

Speaker:

there's

Speaker:

nothing

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

blame

Speaker:

on

Speaker:

her,

Speaker:

but

Speaker:

like

Speaker:

that's

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

lot

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

like,

Speaker:

make

Speaker:

your

Speaker:

dad

Speaker:

move

Speaker:

a house

Speaker:

It's it's honestly insane that the family is

Speaker:

like,

Speaker:

demanding.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

like I don't know.

Speaker:

I could never ask somebody to

Speaker:

fucking move a

Speaker:

house.

Speaker:

No,

Speaker:

Like the

Speaker:

hangout

Speaker:

with me,

Speaker:

more

Speaker:

show

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

you

Speaker:

care,

Speaker:

like,

Speaker:

I get

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

change my bedroom back.

Speaker:

Like those are totally fair.

Speaker:

And have the wife absolutely

Speaker:

show

Speaker:

some effort and

Speaker:

want

Speaker:

to hang

Speaker:

out

Speaker:

with her

Speaker:

Go see

Speaker:

her too.

Speaker:

But

Speaker:

the way.

Speaker:

Understandably

Speaker:

upset as

Speaker:

well.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I don't know.

Speaker:

Who's more on the wrong because the wife and the

Speaker:

family

Speaker:

both

Speaker:

give

Speaker:

me

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

bit

Speaker:

of an

Speaker:

off

Speaker:

feeling.

Speaker:

Cause

Speaker:

I don't

Speaker:

what,

Speaker:

happened?

Speaker:

Why there must have

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

happened?

Speaker:

wonder if she was like,

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

No,

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

don't

Speaker:

want

Speaker:

to tell talk.

Speaker:

say, cause It's

Speaker:

all

Speaker:

hearsay.

Speaker:

So it's like, I don't know if she was the other woman, like,

Speaker:

And

Speaker:

that's

Speaker:

what

Speaker:

caused

Speaker:

oh

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

I,

Speaker:

Well then

Speaker:

why

Speaker:

would

Speaker:

he take full custody

Speaker:

of the daughter that way?

Speaker:

Yeah, that makes sense.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

There's a lot

Speaker:

of things

Speaker:

are missing

Speaker:

in

Speaker:

the context

Speaker:

of

Speaker:

this

Speaker:

So,

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

mean, I guess

Speaker:

if it works for,

Speaker:

for them good

Speaker:

for them, but it sounds like it's going to cause a bit of

Speaker:

a tear in your relationship.

Speaker:

I'd maybe try and, you know, iron things out where it's like, okay,

Speaker:

we'll

Speaker:

hang out.

Speaker:

We'll

Speaker:

do

Speaker:

all

Speaker:

this

Speaker:

other

Speaker:

stuff.

Speaker:

I'll

Speaker:

try

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

make

Speaker:

more

Speaker:

of

Speaker:

an, effort.

Speaker:

Yeah, because dude is just living in his four bedroom, two

Speaker:

master

Speaker:

yeah, by himself

Speaker:

right

Speaker:

now.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Which

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

very depressing.

Speaker:

So

Speaker:

I'm sorry.

Speaker:

You're kind of caught in this because, I, I

Speaker:

also don't

Speaker:

think

Speaker:

you're

Speaker:

an

Speaker:

asshole.

Speaker:

You seem

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

be

Speaker:

like

Speaker:

someone

Speaker:

who's

Speaker:

he's trying to,

Speaker:

but the problem is

Speaker:

everybody's

Speaker:

telling him

Speaker:

different things

Speaker:

are

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

right

Speaker:

thing.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

You've kind

Speaker:

got

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

find a middle

Speaker:

ground

Speaker:

here

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

that's

Speaker:

going to be,

Speaker:

you

Speaker:

sides got to

Speaker:

compromise.

Speaker:

yeah, exactly.

Speaker:

So, that's the update.

Speaker:

I'm going to say not the

Speaker:

asshole now.

Speaker:

You've got a lot of work to do, uh, to iron, a lot of this

Speaker:

stuff

Speaker:

out,

Speaker:

but, it seems

Speaker:

you're

Speaker:

trying

Speaker:

at

Speaker:

least

Speaker:

which I commend.

Speaker:

good.

Speaker:

Keep

Speaker:

trying,

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

want

Speaker:

we we've heard, we've heard, some sad stories, but this one is like, oh, so

Speaker:

sad, like very depressing.

Speaker:

like, the other ones just make me angry.

Speaker:

Like I can't be like, oh

Speaker:

gosh, how

Speaker:

dare

Speaker:

they do

Speaker:

that?

Speaker:

This

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

just like,

Speaker:

oh

Speaker:

no,

Speaker:

this

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

unfortunate.

Speaker:

This'll pop on Tik TOK.

Speaker:

I know

Speaker:

it.

Speaker:

All of us, just being

Speaker:

very sad to him.

Speaker:

I feel bad

Speaker:

for these people.

Speaker:

all right.

Speaker:

Time to get mad again.

Speaker:

am I the asshole for canceling the mother's day celebration that

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

arranged

Speaker:

for

Speaker:

my

Speaker:

wife

Speaker:

after

Speaker:

hearing

Speaker:

what

Speaker:

she told me.

Speaker:

Well,

Speaker:

what did she say?

Speaker:

I haven't got into that.

Speaker:

so I, a 37 year old male have

Speaker:

a 13 year old

Speaker:

son.

Speaker:

I was a widower.

Speaker:

When

Speaker:

I met my

Speaker:

now wife.

Speaker:

She has a 16

Speaker:

year

Speaker:

old daughter

Speaker:

from another relationship.

Speaker:

The family is often on pretty good terms.

Speaker:

my son

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

quiet

Speaker:

in the house

Speaker:

keeps

Speaker:

to himself a lot.

Speaker:

but

Speaker:

not

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

point of

Speaker:

being

Speaker:

concerned.

Speaker:

My

Speaker:

wife

Speaker:

and stepdaughter are the complete opposite.

Speaker:

They both encourage them

Speaker:

be outgoing

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

share

Speaker:

activities

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

gatherings with

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

extended

Speaker:

family.

Speaker:

my son complained about having to be forced out of his comfort zone and

Speaker:

having his need for space invalidated.

Speaker:

I spoke to both my wife and stepdaughter and asked them to give

Speaker:

them space

Speaker:

and freedom to spend his

Speaker:

time.

Speaker:

However

Speaker:

he

Speaker:

wanted,

Speaker:

they

Speaker:

apologized

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

promised

Speaker:

to let

Speaker:

them.

Speaker:

as mother's day was approaching, I wanted to throw

Speaker:

my

Speaker:

wife

Speaker:

surprise mother's day celebration.

Speaker:

How's it a

Speaker:

surprise

Speaker:

if it's mother's

Speaker:

surprise this mother's

Speaker:

day

Speaker:

I didn't

Speaker:

forget.

Speaker:

it

Speaker:

was

Speaker:

no longer

Speaker:

a

Speaker:

because

Speaker:

my

Speaker:

stepdaughter

Speaker:

gave

Speaker:

her the

Speaker:

heads

Speaker:

up

Speaker:

so she

Speaker:

could.

Speaker:

yesterday I got off work earlier than usual to get final arrangements

Speaker:

done, we planted celebrate at

Speaker:

the restaurant

Speaker:

and invited

Speaker:

her

Speaker:

family

Speaker:

there.

Speaker:

I had the key and while I was entering

Speaker:

house through

Speaker:

front door,

Speaker:

I overheard my

Speaker:

wife

Speaker:

and stepdaughter

Speaker:

talking

Speaker:

to my son.

Speaker:

My wife was asking my son, if he could convince

Speaker:

me

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

let

Speaker:

him

Speaker:

stay

Speaker:

home

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

not

Speaker:

go

Speaker:

with

Speaker:

them

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

restaurant

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

sell.

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

paused and decided

Speaker:

to keep listening

Speaker:

as

Speaker:

you

Speaker:

both

Speaker:

are.

Speaker:

Yes.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I'm like things just got interesting.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

My son said why.

Speaker:

And she told him that he's introverted and is socially inept attitude

Speaker:

will make

Speaker:

her family

Speaker:

uncomfortable and will ruin the mood.

Speaker:

He promised her that he would be well behaved and would

Speaker:

try

Speaker:

to interact

Speaker:

socialize with everyone.

Speaker:

But

Speaker:

she said

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

she wasn't buying

Speaker:

it.

Speaker:

He kept reassuring her, but she snapped and told them that

Speaker:

technically she's not as mom.

Speaker:

So she didn't get why he wanted

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

celebrate

Speaker:

mother's

Speaker:

day with her

Speaker:

so

Speaker:

badly.

Speaker:

Oh, my fucking God, not only is the party

Speaker:

canceled.

Speaker:

The fucking marriage is

Speaker:

canceled,

Speaker:

bro.

Speaker:

That's all.

Speaker:

So someone said that to my son.

Speaker:

I'm throwing hands.

Speaker:

I don't care.

Speaker:

Wow.

Speaker:

So in this episode,

Speaker:

we can maniacs.

Speaker:

Josh has said, fuck Asian culture, and that he would put hands on a woman.

Speaker:

You heard it here first

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

would

Speaker:

never

Speaker:

do

Speaker:

that.

Speaker:

hands on Sienna.

Speaker:

Oh, no, I wouldn't do that.

Speaker:

But,

Speaker:

yeah,

Speaker:

absolutely

Speaker:

crossing a line,

Speaker:

um, saying that

Speaker:

to any

Speaker:

child,

Speaker:

let

Speaker:

alone

Speaker:

someone

Speaker:

you

Speaker:

supposed to

Speaker:

be a mother to

Speaker:

ridiculous.

Speaker:

I can't believe she fucking well, the whole, the whole premise of the

Speaker:

conversation is insane, but to end it with, I'm not even your fucking mom,

Speaker:

Yes.

Speaker:

Oh,

Speaker:

my gosh.

Speaker:

If

Speaker:

introverted, like

Speaker:

what

Speaker:

is

Speaker:

he going to do?

Speaker:

Like

Speaker:

what?

Speaker:

It's not like

Speaker:

throw a tantrum at

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

restaurant?

Speaker:

Or

Speaker:

say

Speaker:

weird stuff.

Speaker:

Like,

Speaker:

he's just

Speaker:

not

Speaker:

going to

Speaker:

talk.

Speaker:

It's like,

Speaker:

is that

Speaker:

the really

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

worst

Speaker:

thing

Speaker:

as an introvert

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

but the worst thing that could happen is.

Speaker:

You just quiet, you sit them at the end of the table and

Speaker:

he just

Speaker:

eats his food, whatever,

Speaker:

whatever, like,

Speaker:

let them, let them

Speaker:

be

Speaker:

there

Speaker:

celebrate

Speaker:

with

Speaker:

also.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

What are we doing at a restaurant that requires so much extroverted

Speaker:

energy?

Speaker:

If I can just sitting and eating and talking, but I mean, like, it's not

Speaker:

like he needs to fucking get up and

Speaker:

run around

Speaker:

and he's going

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

No.

Speaker:

Yeah, the

Speaker:

Chuck E cheeses

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

you're going

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

playing

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

arcades.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

Sounds great.

Speaker:

It does sound

Speaker:

great.

Speaker:

so, uh, he continues on, says my stepdaughter threw some, I don't

Speaker:

remember, but backhanded comments,

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

then both

Speaker:

of

Speaker:

them

Speaker:

were shocked

Speaker:

to see

Speaker:

me

Speaker:

standing.

Speaker:

there.

Speaker:

both were staring without saying anything.

Speaker:

I told my son and his stepsister

Speaker:

to go

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

their

Speaker:

rooms,

Speaker:

then

Speaker:

tell

Speaker:

my

Speaker:

wife

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

celebration

Speaker:

was

Speaker:

off.

Speaker:

she tried to argue asking why repeatedly.

Speaker:

And I told her why she explained that she didn't mean

Speaker:

it

Speaker:

like that.

Speaker:

And

Speaker:

I only

Speaker:

heard

Speaker:

part

Speaker:

of

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

conversation,

Speaker:

but

Speaker:

not all of

Speaker:

it.

Speaker:

I told her I was done arguing and the decision was made, She yelled, asking what

Speaker:

I was going

Speaker:

to tell

Speaker:

her

Speaker:

family

Speaker:

and

Speaker:

said

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

I was

Speaker:

making

Speaker:

a tremendous

Speaker:

mistake towards her.

Speaker:

I ignored

Speaker:

her while

Speaker:

she kept

Speaker:

throwing

Speaker:

tantrum.

Speaker:

After

Speaker:

tantrum

Speaker:

earlier this morning, she took my stepdaughter

Speaker:

and went to

Speaker:

stay with their folks, not a single call or text from her.

Speaker:

So far situation is full of tension.

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

still.

Speaker:

but more hurt to be honest.

Speaker:

I mean, yes.

Speaker:

I did say I was going to have the celebration, but I thought

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

what

Speaker:

she

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

my

Speaker:

son was too harsh

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

ignore.

Speaker:

Am

Speaker:

I

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

asshole?

Speaker:

no.

Speaker:

no.

Speaker:

no.

Speaker:

I mean, in some sense, like, yeah, maybe you're only hearing half

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

conversation.

Speaker:

And so

Speaker:

in

Speaker:

one world, maybe the son was being so, so rude to her and she

Speaker:

was like, K, well then don't.

Speaker:

come.

Speaker:

But

Speaker:

still

Speaker:

even

Speaker:

the comment about

Speaker:

not being

Speaker:

your mother

Speaker:

would

Speaker:

have

Speaker:

been

Speaker:

handy at that

Speaker:

point

Speaker:

as

Speaker:

well.

Speaker:

Oh, you're not as mother

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

And celebration.

Speaker:

And it didn't

Speaker:

sound like

Speaker:

it didn't sound

Speaker:

like

Speaker:

that was

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

type of

Speaker:

conversation

Speaker:

anyways,

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

he's

Speaker:

confrontational.

Speaker:

It

Speaker:

seems like

Speaker:

he

Speaker:

was

Speaker:

trying

Speaker:

to

Speaker:

argue that

Speaker:

he

Speaker:

he should

Speaker:

come.

Speaker:

To celebrate

Speaker:

Yeah, exactly.

Speaker:

oh,

Speaker:

that

Speaker:

makes

Speaker:

me

Speaker:

so

Speaker:

sad.

Speaker:

This

Speaker:

makes

Speaker:

me

Speaker:

sad

Speaker:

again.

Speaker:

Why

Speaker:

did

Speaker:

you

Speaker:

choose

Speaker:

this

Speaker:

store?

Speaker:

Sorry,

Speaker:

I just want to be mad.

Speaker:

That's sad.

Speaker:

my

Speaker:

bad.

Speaker:

uh,

Speaker:

I wanted

Speaker:

to feel

Speaker:

different

Speaker:

emotions.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

We

Speaker:

always

Speaker:

get

Speaker:

mad.

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

always

Speaker:

sad.

Speaker:

That sounds

Speaker:

so bad.

Speaker:

but I like, I just

Speaker:

have I'm very emotional.

Speaker:

We're painting a lot about, uh,

Speaker:

we're learning a lot about Josh.

Speaker:

no,

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

just kidding.

Speaker:

I'm

Speaker:

uh, Um, so that is it for this episode.

Speaker:

What did you think wicked maniacs where these people assholes?

Speaker:

Were they

Speaker:

in the right

Speaker:

were these

Speaker:

stories

Speaker:

just

Speaker:

playing sad?

Speaker:

Next time CNAs on, we got to have

Speaker:

nothing but shitty

Speaker:

men

Speaker:

stories.

Speaker:

Yes.

Speaker:

Thank

Speaker:

you.

Speaker:

Literally

Speaker:

the

Speaker:

convention, in north America.
