"hey JAB and I dont speak so I dont know when I would be able to get the present. Its real nice of you to get him something, but honestly if you had the receipt you could just take it back because most likely I will never see you and I dont want you to have wasted your money" -JAB's sister LB
The back story. LB is younger then I am, 22 and she has a 1 year old son. I have wanted to meet him because I love babies and I know how much JAB loves baby Landon. I went out and got him the cutest onesies and a little baby baseball set. I was invited to Landon's birthday but I couldn't attend because I had a wedding out of state.
|I'm faster than you... and I crawl!|
I got him the gifts as a way of introducing myself to JAB's family, as I have never met them. When I first moved to town I send LB a nice note via facebook saying how I was new in town and how Id love to meet her and have coffee. I was hopeful because I want to be close with JAB's family and the fact that LB and I are close in age, I thought we would at least be friends.
The issue is LB is married to a military man who lives in CT. They have been together a little over 2 years. When her husband was sent out on a one year mission on a sub, LB moved home and started dating this local guy. Now she acts like the new guy is her husband when she is not even separated. The husband was only out a week before he returned home, so he is fully aware of what his wife is doing.
So LB's new boy toy was nice enough to sell JAB a nice pool table for his new house. JAB had the check written out to him but LB insisted on getting it that day. Of course, she ended up washing the check, so it was destroyed. She promptly called JAB and demanded he drop everything and bring her a new check (an hour drive). Of course, he didn't have the time to do it so he said he couldn't. She flipped out and threatened to contact me and his ex gf and tell us that he was cheating on us (even though hes been broken up with the ex for a year) and threatened to tell his parents a bunch of lies about me, even though she has never met me.
JAB told me all of this and I was flabbergasted. And now this? I am amazed this women calls herself a southern belle, right on her facebook! No belle, no women with any decency would ever send that sort of email! Simply take the gift graciously for your son, and leave your family drama out if it! I am just so insulted and hurt, I dont even know how to respond!
