I'm not saying this in a mean spirited way. Seriously.
I really *don't* care. But it does make me exhale a sigh of relief that wrongs are righted.
DH dropped SS off at BM's on his way to work yesterday morning. When he got there, BM was sitting on her front porch and she came straight out to DH's car in the drive.
And asked him if he had reported her to the state for welfare fraud!!!!
NO. Then she asked if I had done it.
DH said he just rolled his eyes and told her neither of us has either the TIME or the DESIRE to get involved in drama. Specifically, her drama.
Then---and, see, I've never understood where, on one hand BM is always threatening DH with court but then, on the other, spilling her dirty secrets to him---she told him that she had been reported to the state for collecting benefits fraudulently. Somehow the state discovered that she is MARRIED to her two little girls' father. (She's always gotten benefits by saying that she was single and living w/her parents.)
Anyway-she told DH she is losing over $600/month in food stamps and medical insurance for her and the two little girls.
I don't at all want her children to suffer but this woman does NOT need welfare. Money is tight for them because she doesn't work and they keep having kids! And then she tries to stretch welfare dollars into an income. If you kwim,
DH said he didn't really give her a chance to say anything else, he just said that he was sure she and her DH would make ends meet. And then he got the heck outta there.
I am just so relieved to hear that it's finally happened. After YEARS, seriously YEARS, of her milking the system. I don't wish ill on her and, honestly, I don't like it when SHE is in a bad mood b/c that's when she often lashes out at DH.
