FOWC with Fandango — Undermine

Someone would always undermine my efforts or decision.
Played havoc trying to discipline kids.  What was the point?
I’d say one thing, he’d say another, then the ex wife would say something else, throw in comments from two sets of grandparents and their new partners, I was on to a loser from the get go.
One kid played us all for fools, had us running round in circles playing one off against the other and getting his own way all the time. I stopped playing his game.
He came unstuck when he was caught shoplifting, so after The Plod had had words (he was very nice and discreet actually), I sent the little brat to his room until his Dad got home.
Being the blue eyed boy who could do no wrong, he was cock sure he could undermine whatever I told his father.
I said I wasn’t going to tell his Dad anything. He was.
I can still remember the house shaking when his dad bellowed ‘You did WHAT?????’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
