Isn’t this the biggest joke? I am married albeit separated and on the verge of being divorced, my husband has quit his job, and I didn’t know it.
Normally involving the in-laws is a “no-no” in marital situations, but I have been left with no choice. After work, as soon as I walked in the door, I called my mother-in-law Judy. I figure if anyone knows where my no-good husband is, it would be her. While my first inclination was to be worried by Bryce’s mysterious disappearance, common sense said otherwise. The reality of the situation is, my friend, husband, and lover has filed for divorce and is not man enough to face me. My respect for him is quickly diminishing – considering I have been left with the first and second mortgage on our home, car note, and all of the outstanding credit card bills. My mission, now that I have chosen to accept it, is to find Bryce’s sorry ass post haste!
I wasn’t sure Judy would accept my call, Bryce is a mama’s boy and she blames me for the breakup of our marriage. Of course, Bryce has never admitted to his infidelity and I don’t have the inclination nor the desire to tell her. As it would happen, Judy answered and the conversation began with the normal pleasantries. However, I really had little patience to delve into a heart-to-heart conversation, so I cut to the chase. “Ma, I called Bryce at work today and was told that he no longer works there. Can you tell me where he is?” Obviously I was naive to think she would tell me…Judy played dumb.
The only answer I received was “I don’t know where he is working now. Friday of last week was his last day, but I will tell him you called.”
