Today’s Moron: Sleeping Deadbeat DadOctober 6, 2008
Today’s Moron is a guy from Tyndall, Manitoba, who is suing the mother of his child in a stupid bid to get out of paying child support.
This guy claims the woman climbed aboard while he was asleep, thus creating new life without his consent. He claims he woke up, told her to “cease and desist” and she did, but it was too late. Now he’s a dad (something he doesn’t deny) but he figures he shouldn’t have to pay to help the kid.
Buddy, grow the fuck up. That’s not the way it works. This country is full of people, mostly men, who pay big chunks of cash to their exes every month so that their kids get to eat and that sort of thing. I’m one of them. Am I happy about it? No. Do I regret it? No. It’s like the electricity bill — I hate seeing it every month, but I know it has to be paid.
You’re the father, you pay. Be a man, you deadbeat.
