Sybil’s maddening entitlement issues

As a stay at home ‘mom’ –and I use that term very loosely with this woman…one would think Sybil would be a little more appreciative of the fact that Norm has such great health benefits. Now- there is absolutely no reason whatsoever that Sybil needs to stay at home anymore since all her children are in school but that's a whole nother issue. There has been a constant battle since the beginning of Norm and Sybil’s split about uninsured medical expenses- co pays and the excess in which the insurance company doesn’t cover. Which, btw is typically minimal unless of course you’re a serious hypochondriac with Munchausen by proxy tendencies (Sybil to a T). Sybil tends to drag MS and MN to the doctor for every little cough or sniffle…demanding they run tests and take x-rays etc. It has frustrated us beyond reality that we’ve had to pay for half of medical expenses almost solely due to her extreme behavior.

Lately (over the past year or so) to add insult to injury, she has actually complained about the “fact” that she has to pay for half of OUR family deductible. I am quite certain her anti-Christ-like parents have planted this load of crap seed in her puny brain because everyone knows she’s not smart enough to have come up with this on her own. The irony about the situation is this – out of the 5 individuals of OUR family that the deductible covers- MS and MN go to the doctor the most. Me, Norm and Normonster are rarely sick much less go to the Dr. It only makes sense that she’s going to be paying for half of the deductible since she drags them to the Dr all the time.

Looking at the big picture- she should be so grateful that Norm’s insurance coverage is still so good. She should feel pretty f-ing lucky he has a job at all in this economy to support her lazy ass. Instead she has to bitch and wine that she’s getting the short end of the stick. This is just ONE little teeny tiny example of how she feels entitled and like the world and especially MY HUSBAND owes her.

I want to be JUST LIKE HER when I grow up. ((((shudder))))


  1. Don't you just love the sense of entitlement? She gave birth so she's entitled to sit on her butt, inflate expenses for unnecessary trips to the doctor, and punish dad for whatever wrong she perceives is occurring at the time.

    I have a countdown on my myspace page on when the legal relationship with the ex ends. I think I'm going to add one to my stepfamily blog too ( I'm going to go do that now while I'm thinking about it. :)

  2. Heh...we're looking at 49 more months until we're legally rid of her. I wouldn't mind her being a stay at home mom if she actaully did her job as a parent- shoot I'd do it if I had the opportunity...but this woman does everything within her power to avoid working to financially support her children. While they live in the basement of her parents house- she's off galavanting around with her boyfriend(s). Her mother doeas all the cooking and cleaning for them in the basement. It's truly sick.

  3. Syn- I totally agree, squeezing out a kid (pardon the pun) doesn't make one a parent, raising a kid does.

  4. "she has actually complained about the “fact” that she has to pay for half of OUR family deductible."

    Wow! You would think she would be grateful just to have insurance at all. (And I say that as someone who grew up without insurance.)

  5. Agree to it all...and the countdown would be wonderfull...if only I didn't have 12 more years until the last one turns 18 :(

  6. Our BM is a 'stay at home mom' too, and all of her kids are in school, she also complains that she has to pay for her portion of medical bills and feels that we 'chose' the plan to stick her with paying some of the bills... because the world ALWAYS revolves around BM's.

    * Love your comment about being like her when you grow up :} I say that too, only because then I could point the finger at everyone else and sit at home and get paid to do absolutely nothing *

  7. I am a BM (and a stepmom) and my ex doesn't carry health insurance for our son. That being said, it doesn't really bother me because my husband and I carry health insurance for him. I didn't even request that he pay half of everything in the order. I only asked that he pay half if it was over a certain ridiculous amount. For example, one time our out of pocket expenses for my son's braces was nearly $2,500, and I asked that he pay half of that. He did and everything was fine. I don't, however, ask him to pay EVERY SINGLE time I take my son to the doctor because it is my decision to take him to the doctor. The only thing I expect is for him to pay child support and be a father to his child and to treat him the way he's supposed to be treated.

    I'm sorry you have to go through this. Hopefully, more ex-wives will begin to adopt my point of view.
