    Sorry. Thank you all for your patience and understanding. Here's what's happening:

    As you no doubt can see from reading my posts, I am not exactly rated PG. Well, tonight I received an e-mail from a Facebook "friend" of mine's ex-husband. It seems that his daughter, aged 10, had been reading some of the communications between his ex-wife and me. Mind you, nothing ever happened between the ex-wife and me, but for some reason this guy is all bent out of shape with me. So, no, I have NOT responded to him, but I was on the phone with a friend of mine who happens to be an attorney (NOT because I am worried about anything legally; he just happens to be a matrimonial lawyer, so I was interested in his take on all this), discussing the situation.

    Fill in the blanks, ask your questions, offer your input. . .

    reply to Matt
    send this answer to a friend



    To take a big picture perspective ... you now know that Facebook is not the forum for 'adult' discussions with your friend.

    I'll give the ex-husband the benefit of the doubt and guess that his issue is not so much with you ~ but with the aggravation he's feeling with his wife.

    And to ensure that his concerns with regards to his 10 year old daughter are 'heard' ... he's sent them to you as well, so that you may follow through where he perhaps feels she will not.

    He may be feeling a little 'out of control' with situations like this as it highlights all he can't do because he no longer lives with his daughter full-time.

    Is this possible?

    reply to Sally G.
    send this answer to a friend



    I am not the least bit interested in her marital situation. Rather, I am thinking that I wish to "unfriend" her, because I REALLY just think that her whole take is absurd. Believe it or not, I kinda agree with the ex-husband. I mean, yes, I think that he is freaking out on me when I haven't really done anything wrong--look, I am not PG; I exchanged some adult talk with his ex-wife that his child never should have read--but I understand his concern. The mom is obviously not doing her job in properly supervising their girls.

    If you can believe it, though, this woman sees nothing wrong with what has happened; save for "Asshole's" reaction. . .

    reply to Matt
    send this answer to a friend



    The point is, Wifey is actually pissed at Asshole, yes, but also puzzled by why I would be angry with HER! And I am like, "You're kidding, right?"

    Without getting graphic here, I think you can prolly guess the nature of the correspondence between me and Wifey. . .

    Anger clouds judgement - and it sounds like her anger has clouded hers.

    I think the husband is concerned enough about his daughters to contact you. Hoping you'll be the voice of reason in this situation.

    Whether you take on the role or not is up to you ~ and now you know that your e-mails may no longer be as private as you thought they were.

    I think your take is right on, Sally! No doubt, he thinks that Wifey is not doing an adequate job of supervising their two girls, 17 in February and 10. So, he prolly isn't really so pissed at me--beyond no man really wanting to hear about his ex-wife's interest in some vulgarian like me--but also doesn't realize that for all my joking and kidding around as a humorist and comedian, I also happen to be a very civic-minded and moral person who has a great deal of sympathy for his position. His little girl has been exposed to something she should not have been. He doesn't know me from Adam. Well, he doesn't want me anywhere near his kids.

    Fine. I get it. The funny thing is, I have no desire to BE around his kids; neither of whom I ever met or even so much as spoke with. I know their names and ages. I have no idea what either looks like, where they go to school, etc. I have met Wifey only once in person, when (at HER suggestion; spontaneously) we met for drinks one night on a "school" night, but only for an hour-and-a-half from 6:30 - 8. As I said, it went nowhere. . .

    You'd be giving him a HUGE gift if you could reply with a validation of some kind.

    You are so sorry that his children saw messages they shouldn't, you agree that his daughters should not have been exposed to them -- and you will no longer participate in this activity in this manner going forward.

    In a 'manly' way, of course.

    The poor guy probably feels quite impotent right now -- and so frustrated that he can't protect his 'little girl' as Father's should.

    Without indicating any disrespect to his ex-wife ... let him know you get what he's saying ... and you're on board.

    And as for the woman ~ release her. She doesn't mirror who you are - there will be others.

    Heck - you had 3 women standing out in the rain there tonight ... would have been 4 - if Elvis hadn't died. ;)

    I am angry with HER, Beth, because I just feel that it is absurd of her to ask me what the big deal is. The BIG DEAL, Wifey, is that your ten year-old was reading our explicit e-mails. She should not be reading that stuff. In the first place, they were not meant for her to be reading. And more importantly, she is a child, for godsake. Maybe Wifey is more libertine parent than Asshole--certainly, that seems to be the case--but I would have to side with Asshole here, in saying that his daughter's exposure to this is "unfortunate" and "unacceptable". I thin that I had a right to know that Daughter read the stuff BEFORE A-Hole e-mailed me. And Wifey's claim that she didn't see what there was to contact me about, as she never thought Asshole would contact me and thus make me the wiser for the knowledge, is just a lot of shit.

    More likely, Wifey is ambivalent about me. But she was not done with me quite yet. I was on some back burner, so she didn't want to bring up the whole thing about Daughter, because she didn't want to scare me off. Quite manipulative, I think. I think, Beth, that Wifey should have called me about this "issue" as soon as she became aware of it. And if she really thought that there was no big deal, she is COMPLETELY incompatible with me temperamentally.

    That said, Sally, I agree with Beth entirely, and DON'T wish to get further involved. I intend to follow Attorney Friend's advice and defriend Wifey and not respond to Asshole.

    So that's what had me preoccupied. But I am done with that now, and apologize for keeping you up. . .

    Beth - I cannot play the video. What was its gist?

    Sally - As I said, I am inclined to agree with Beth and not get further involved; especially considering that I am done with Wifey. Frankly, it ain't my cross to bear. Let him hash out his familial bullshit with Wifey himself. Trust me, I cannot possibly be the first guy or only guy with whom she has communicated, met, or even--as never came to pass with us--dated and/or slept with in whatever manner (i.e., as a couple, FWBs, etc.) So, as I know that I am not the problem here, I wonder why I need to even attempt to be the solution. I feel for the guy, but nothing I say will really "resolve" the issue. And the best way to demonstrate my sincerity in having no desire to expose his child to Matt Penn, is to not expose his child to me. In other words, if I just go away, as I intend to, how can he take issue? He won't, because he sounds like the responsible parent. . .

    Whew. Sounds perfect.

    Sorry for the delay. I was offering assistance on another post.

    I think you're doing the right thing. Though my heart will hurt for that 10 year old forever.

    Children are so vulnerable - especially in the hands of irresponsible parents.

    By the way, we've never met. My name's Sally - I'm pretty new here. But I plan to move in as I love the community.

    This is not an overture -- just a friendly 'hope to see you again soon'.

    Good night.

    Thanks very much for your input, Sally (and everyone else!). It is very nice to meet you, too. I agree with you that it is unfortunate what happened with respect to this little girl having been exposed to something she should not have. That said, I stand by what I wrote about my not being the problem here.

    I will look forward to seeing you and all my other new friends here soon. For now, let me wish you (all) a good night, sweet dreams, and a great remainder of the weekend!


    Best,
    Matt

    Hey, is THAT why people call me "F Train"? I thought it was because of my first name only! What is this song about? Don't you dare say prostitution! My friend Roxanne has it bad enough...

    I won't be your neighbor for 3 reasons:

    a) I don't know where you live.
    b) You seem to insist on wearing shades in a sepia-toned environments.
    c) I really just don't feel like being your neighbor.

    Well, I wouldn't root for a foreclosure, but thanks. As for the song, I always thought that it was about the threat of environmental degradation, and an ominous (and for the time, prescient) warning about the threat posed by global warming and dependence on foreign oil.

    But what do I know.

    Matt wrote: Sorry. Thank you all for your patience and understanding. Here's what's happening: As you no doubt can see from reading my posts, I am not exactly rated PG. Well, tonight I received an e-mail from a Facebook "friend" of mine's ex-husband. It seems that his daughter, aged 10, had been reading some of the communications between his ex-wife and me. Mind you, nothing ever happened between the ex-wife and me, but for some reason this guy is all bent out of shape with me. So, no, I have NOT responded to him, but I was on the phone with a friend of mine who happens to be an attorney (NOT because I am worried about anything legally; he just happens to be a matrimonial lawyer, so I was interested in his take on all this), discussing the situation. Fill in the blanks, ask your questions, offer your input. . .

    Holy wife swapper Batman! How did I miss this post?

    Oh Matty Four Eyes, that's a real bummer...but yeh, no more writing on Facebook. I scoped (not proud) my younger daughter's Live Journal for a while when she was in high school. I have gone to Confession for this and have been resolved so there, but you left yourself wide open.

    But the good news is you don't have a wife but you do claim to have lyme and a shovel.

    I'll help you, but it's still over.

    I'M SORRY MISS BETH -- I'M NOT USED TO STAYING UP SO LATE ... I MISSED IT!!

    I remember this song. I have to say - I like Matt better ... I always found Corey Hart pouty and self-absorbed.

    This would fit well on the Dweebs of Past Music Support Group site though ... for sure we'd find a fan or two there!

    Last night was a good night.

    Samantha ... let's do it again next week - WITH YOU THERE -- and with no crisis for our Sepia coloured, face shaded friend.

    No PTSD, no drugs, no gangs. I need some new vices.

    Yeah, Theresa, but I think you would have to agree that I put the sing in single! Then you would have to shoot me, for actually having written that.
