Me & the kids done with being a trucker's family
Yep, the final straw came when him & his team driver came to have a layover by our city & his team driver went to a truck stop to do his layover but anyhow me & the kids have no idea as to why he came home! It certainly wasn't to spend time with us but to avoid sleeping in the truck & to avoid staying at the truck stop.
He did not spend no time with the kids, the only time he gave me the attention is when he wanted his "needs" met which went unmet! I don't care, he can get his needs met by some lot lizard, or out there at a truck stop by a female driver, waitress or a clerk & me & the kids are moving out as soon as he leaves!
My Mom begged me 2 years ago for me & the kids to leave him & move in with her when he first became a trucker! My Mom warned me that over time he would change! My Dad who is deceased was a Truck Enforcement Police Officer & what my Dad dealt with & the stories he had to tell well believe me if my Dad was still alive, he would have dragged me & the kids away from him 2 years ago!
When he called me & told me at the last minute he was coming home, I asked him why did he call at the last minute & he said the fleet manager was not sure yet if he had anything for them but he ate us out of house & home, he drank all of my Mom's sodas that I have here for when she visits & he had plenty of his ice tea here, he ate all her favorite candy, & when he did tell me he was coming home, I told him I was not feeling well that the doctor had me on a strong antibiotic for bronchitis/sinus infection & what does he do, but wake me up one time 2:30 am & another night 3:30 am for his "needs" & we got into an argument over that & the next day when my Mom called me she asked me what was I so tired about & I told her that she would be tired too if Dad woke her up at those hours & she said oh your Father never did that, he had consideration & my Mom said that if my Dad did do that, well the sofa would be his permanent sleep area.
So now me & the kids no longer have to be unhappy & my husband had the gall to also ask me what size turkey was I getting for Thanksgiving & he said he couldn't wait for turkey day, oh well, & even my kids were excited about moving in with their Grandmom!
My Mom's next door neighbor's son is an attorney & my Mom said he wants to talk to me because he said I have a strong case. This lifestyle may be for some, but for me & the kids truck driving lifestyle is not for us - the pay is at poverty level, some drivers like mine develop a Dr.Jekyll/Mr.Hyde personality where they are real charmers outside their family & treat their family like strangers!
