Exes are exes for a reason...

I swear, my ex is a total ______, (just fill it in with your favorite "word". ). If I put what I want to I'd get banned.

Look, I share my home with a Golden Retriever. They shed. Get over it. He is forever making comments about hair in the house. I vacuum every single day, sometimes twice a day, but there is still going to be hair! He has always been this way about my animals. Constant bi*ching. Constantly. My son is visiting for his Christmas break so I have to have his dad over every day while he's here. I usually only have to deal with him every other Saturday for a few hours when he visits my daughter.

Before the kids can get in his car, they have to have every piece of dog hair off of them. Seriously!?! They have to go over and over themselves with the hair roller. Then he has to "inspect" them. If he's not satisfied, they have to do it again. And you know what? His car's a mess. Really, there's stuff all over it. He has to make room before they can even get in it. My car, which he complains if we have to use it, is spotless. Except for a few hairs here and there. Chance and Lucy ride in the back and don't ever ride on the seats.

He makes me feel weird because I have dogs. He has always been this way, I should be used to it, but it still gets to me. I know I should just shrug it off, but I can't. I'm so glad I can come on here and know I'm not weird and there are others that love their dogs as much as I do and have dog hair, (gasp!), in their homes, too.

Sorry, I just needed to vent. Thanks for "listening".

Karen, Chance, Lucy and Savanah (RB)

Sorry, you have to go through this frustration. My dad's current wife is the same way. I told her, the dogs live here and she doesn't and if she doesn't like the way I keep house then she doesn't need to visit. She hasn't been over for 3 years and counting. I am impressed you are taking the high road for the sake of your children.

Sounds like you ended up with the best deal here, the kids and the dogs

You may as well laugh about it since it sounds like he's never going to change. Sorry the kids have to put up with it though.

Let the fur fly...that's my motto

Thanks...when we split up, my son was 12 and he kind of blamed me because I asked his dad to leave. I had a very, very good reason, but I never told my kids because he's their father and I didn't want to go there. But...when my son was 18 he asked me what happen and I finally told him. He said he understood and he was sorry for thinking it was me.

Use a roller on their clothes and then be inspected????? Sounds like he is into power and control.
I would encourage my children to (respectfully) decline (unless this would bring his cruelty/wrath upon their heads in which case it would be safer to limit their exposure to him).

You are a lot nicer than I would be. I wouldn't vacumn until all this visitation was over. He can deal with the dog hair.
