The Opposite of Thank You Notes

I have a ton to be thankful for. Especially my GroovyHippie Mom friend. But the rest of the people in my life up here can go to hell. Here is my Fuck You Very Much list.

Not one of the moms from my playgroup has called, emailed or asked about our departure. Fuck you very much.

This includes the mom who made the point of telling me that we needed to have lunch together before we left. I haven't heard a peep from her. Not that I am surprised. Fuck you very much.

I just got an Evite for a birthday party for three of the boys.

My response was: We will be in NoVa by then. Thanks for thinking of us though, and we wish the boys a fun and splashy birthday!!

What I really wanted to write: Fuck you very much, but we'll have moved by then. If you had called like you said you would, you would already know that. Bite me.

There is more, but it just gets redundant.

This move is going to be so good for us. With friends like these...

Interesting take. I love it!

Good luck with your move!

And once again, I'm slightly stunned at the pure asshole-ishness of the human race. It never ceases to amaze me how people can just cut you out of their lives, like you were a bad spot on an apple. I had friends that did that when I moved away. Needless to say, I didn't bother to contact them again when I moved back.

I hope the move goes smoothly for you.

Has Hallmark contacted you yet regarding your new line of (hostile)greeting cards? Baby, you're a natural! I'd buy a bundle!

I can relate to the days of not being able to break the "mommy clique" - good riddance, I say, they have no clue what they were missing - time for a fresh start!

@Sue: Thanks! Things are looking up every day!

@Major BH: I am glad you didn't cave and get back in touch with them. Why go through all that a second time around?

@The Baroness: You may be on to something there. Maybe I can pull a Mr. Deeds and start sending them stuff.

@GroovyHippieMom: You know what--you probably shouldn't even go there. Lurk on the email list to learn about community events, but it irritation just isn't worth it.

GAD! People just don't friggin' get it. Every time I hear shit like this, people treating others like crap because they're too busy with their heads up their asses, it makes me think of the play Our Town. Someday, when it's too late, they'll figure it out.

I;m not a huge fan of the English, but one thing they are good at is the art of the double edged comment. A seemingly friendly reply can double as a slayingly sharp rebuke. I'll see if I can drum up some examples for you to use on your play group mums. God, I'm glad I'm a Dad!
