A little history.
I was awarded pri. Parent not long ago. I have full decision making. NJ gets EOW. When D7 moved here, the NJ sent a cell phone, in order to keep in contact with D7. At that time I informed NJ I would not be responsible for the phone or if there is a failure to contact D7 I would not be responsible. Got it in writing. Also at that time I informed NJ that D7 already had a cell phone at my house and NJ had the phone number. Two cell phones was just to much. But I would not stand in the way of it.
Now, NJ called my cell phone yesterday, asking to speak to D7. And D7 called NJ back. NJ has called the cell phone NJ gave D7 several times, but the phone is on D7’s dresser and has not been touched since D7 moved here. D7 just don’t care about it. And I fail to understand how I can keep up with the calls if they don’t come thru me.
Nj sent this email this morning. As usual, it twist the truth and appears to be something NJ may be planning to use in court. It reads as follows...
I tried to call D7 last night and could not reach her on her cellphone and could not reach you on yours. I am asking once again that you set up her voice mail so that I can leave her messages so that she knows that I am trying to call her.
I would also ask that you send the cell phone with her when she comes to visit next weekend.
This is what I was considering answering NJ with!
This is not the whole truth! You did call my cell with no answer, but, D7 did try to call you back and you didn't answer! And later she called you again and talked to you. D7 has always returned your calls, and did talk to you yesterday! My cell phone bill will reflect this! You are welcome to call my cell at any time to talk to her! But, I will not be responsible for a cell phone you gave her, and I don't keep up with, that phone is between you and her! In fact, since she has a cell phone here, and she is perfectly capable of receiving calls on my cell, I think she needs to keep your cell phone at your home. As I told you, when you told me you was sending the cell phone, I will not be responsible for your phone!!! You have her cell phone number, of the phone I gave her and you have mine, you also have the house phone number! I think all these cell phones is just to much of a burden on a seven year old, and making her responsible for two cell phones and your phone calls is to much. The responsibility for her to get phone calls, from you, is mine, not D7‘s! And I can not assure this happens with a cell phone she keeps to herself! From now on, you need to call my cell phone to talk to her, so, I can make sure you get your calls!
Your thoughts please!
