These are my children. Aren’t they lovely?
Here’s a thing that should never be done to children: no one should ever try to turn them against their parent. If their parent sucks badly enough, the kids will eventually figure it out themselves.
Here’s another thing that should never be done to children, even after they are grown: their soft white under-belly should never be exposed to others.
People who do those things need to be excised like a cancer.
And here’s a thing about communication: you can’t complain about the lack of it if you delete or ignore it when you get it.
And here’s a thing about passive-aggressiveness: I’m better at it, and I’ve just raised the bar. In public. Because my attempts at direct private communication have not been acknowledged, and I’m calling you out.
