So a couple months ago, if you’ll remember, my dog, Texas got sick and needed surgery to remove what they thought was a tumor. Turns out it wasn’t a tumor, but a tear in his stomach lining that caused a blockage.
And if you’ll also recall, my soon to be ex-husband (divorce pending) OFFERED to pay for the surgery because he said he knew I needed my dog in my life and he knew how much I loved the dog and he loved the dog and well, the dog was loved. I told him he didn’t need to pay for the dog’s surgery. And deep down, I figured if he did, he’d hold it over my head later that he’d paid for it. I tried to tell him not to, but he went and made an appointment for the dog.
Now he’s telling me I owe him the money he paid for the surgery. That if I want the chance to see the rest of my things, I’ll pay him what I OWE him, because I used him.
Personally I think he’s bitter that I’ve moved on and moved away, but still. Doesn’t this sort of behavior make people (who keep up with my life) want to say, “good thing you got out now?”
Ugh. I don’t know. It’s irritating. I tried telling him I didn’t want the dog’s memory tarnished over money, but that didn’t get through.
