The joys (and desperation) of raising a boy without a man

A very short story

Here is a little story about irony and karma (if you believe in it).
I was at this custody hearing lately (of a friend of course) where the absent father told the judge (in writing and in person) that the mother was crazy and a psycho and that he (the father) wanted custody of his son (which he hadn’t seen in 4 years) and he wanted the cray cray mother to go to therapy and report back to him (the excellent mentally stable father). 
The judge instead, after hearing both the mother and the obsessive hate filled rant from the father, grants the cray mother (my friend) sole legal and sole physical custody of the child and forces the FATHER to see a psychiatrist 3 times a month for an undetermined amount of time until the psychiatrist clears him to be in the SAME ROOM as his son. 

You simply can not make this shit up. It’s beyond Hollywood’s wildest plot twists. 

Moral of the story: Irony is not dead.  Life is a mirror and what you project in others is just a reflection of what you see in yourself. What you wish for others, you get back to yourself. 

Thats all =)
