Apparently Paul is upset with me that I at first said that I wouldn’t go after his pension and CPP and now I’ve changed my mind and I will, and that I will be amending the separation agreement to reflect this.
I was hoping that he would understand what a good deal he was getting and sign off fast. Instead he stalled, and told me that the house was not going on the market until the separation agreement was signed. In the meantime, I got unbelievable phone calls and emails from friends and relatives, some of them PAUL’S friends and relatives, all beating me up something ferocious about what a prize moron I was being, what an unmitigated ass, and suchlike. So I changed my mind. My father, for one, will sleep more soundly, because he advised me ONCE at the beginning of this process, and having both more life experience and forbearance than my friends, has declined to advise me further, considering me both too foolish and too headstrong to take advice. Okay pOp, the chump wised up, but only after repeated floggings!
However…. I am within my rights to request access to these sums, however paltry, and if Paul wants to be angry with me for asking for my rights, that’s his privilege. I have something else to say about this that is extremely funny and mean-spirited, but I’ll save it for the Gang of Three.
I will quote from Cat Ballou, “….and made him talk to LAWYERS!” as my envoi….
