Mark My Words

Oh geez, I guess I’ve not heard it all. The ex told the kid that he got a concealed carry. Well, he has to take a class, but he’s got it. WHAT??? Does nobody but me think this is odd? I told the kid it was ludicrous as he doesn’t live in a high crime area and has no need to have this license. The kid laughed and said that it was because his dad wanted it. By the way, his dad also wants an AK 47. You know, that automatic rifle?

But there’s more to it. I know it. Deep in my bones. I know it. So I said to the kid, “Your dad has a whole other secret life” to which the kid looked shocked at first and then laughed. “Mom, you have such an imagination!”

But I don’t. I know things. He’s been threatened before and we had scary dudes come to the house back when we were married. Strange calls back then too. But the kids don’t remember. I do. I remember he told me that he was being threatened and had to go on a ‘business trip’ so he gave me the key to the gun box and loaded them. The kids didn’t know he had them. I kept them by my bed for a week, ready to defend my family. I slept during the day when the kids were at school so I could be awake at night. It was a long week. Luckily, nothing happened. But I don’t forget the fear, nor the fact that he kept a lot of secrets from me.

Oh, I’m so glad I’m not married to him anymore.

But this is concerning. An angry narcissist with a concealed weapon? Never a good thing. And why now? Why does he suddenly need these things? I mean, really????

There’s something going on…mark my words.

  2. Unbelievable. And you are safe? There is no concern on that end? Do they do background checks where they call the ex-spouses to check? Reason I am asking is I was contacted by the RCMP when my ex applied for his gun license to ensure that I had no worries or fears if he were to have a gun. Stay safe please. We have lots of dating chats to have šŸ™‚

    That is definitely odd. And concerning.

    Does the ex gamble? The prior incident sounds like someone trying to collect a debt.

      I have wondered…he used to like to go to Atlantic City from time to time back in the day, but I was with him and he wasn’t betting big. There are a lot of questions now that go unanswered. Many weekend ‘work nights’ because of a deadline that never seemed right, but when I questioned him, he got angry about so I didn’t push further. He could have been anywhere…doing whatever…but I thought the same thing…

  6. Your gut is right. Time will tell what the crazy is, and hopefully it happens far from you and the kids.

    This makes my skin crawl- I would hate my son to think his Dad had a gun- American culture has gone a long way down the wrong road I believe. Please stay safe xx G

    This post leads me to look up narcissists vs alcoholics. My idiot ex has a gun with which I was hoping he would do himself in, but no such luck. So sorry to hear yours talked your kid into getting one and that none of the following happens to him, the kid not the ex.

    He could also have committed suicide by police when, on his birthday yet, he didn’t answer his phone and missed his doctor’s appointment so I’d called the cops to do a wellness check. That opportunity was missed, too.

    He also asked me if one of the prank emails he got, reporting to him that I’d put a contract out on him, was real. Of course, he knew, and told me that he knew, that it wasn’t real. Last there was a rock thrown though HIS front window.

    Makes me wonder if he’s paranoid, as he displayed with a lot of overblown and unjustified jealousy and other weird behaviors, of if maybe he really has some enemies, besides me and his daughter and a few of his relatives.
