Now Friday is Not the Day 20090924

What is it with the attorneys?  It was supposed to happen a few weeks ago, but the papers were not in order.

I tried to send them, but the attorney never sent the blank ones for me to sign, and have notarized, until I reminded him.

Well, he finally did that, and I sent those papers back on the same day, but that does not seem to make any difference.  I never wanted a divorce, but making it stretch out for months, after the agreement was made, is torture for me, and for the soon to be the former Mrs. Translator.

I just want to get it done, and these weeks have not only made me angry (not at her, but towards the attorney), but my soul has been destroyed.  I think that there will not so much understanding on Pique the Geek, because I feel very angry.

Warmest regards, if I am still capable of that,

    This will be over soon enough. Lawyers, judges and the legal system in general..suck.. no other word comes to mind that quite fits. This has truly been a rough time for you, your soon to be ex-wife and most likely your children. You will always be who you are and that is a very kind, gentleman wit a good heart and soul. Just breath.

    Better than being depressed.

    Are you still being polite to the lawyer? I don’t think I could manage that myself, at the point you’re at. I would likely have sent him one of my…emails by now; the ones I send when I get pushed just a little bit too far. Not threatening or anything like that, but expressive of outrage, shall we say?

    I don’t mean to make suggestions, just to say wow; this guy is being a totally unprofessional sadistic jerk.

    MomCat is right; just hang in there, grit teeth, don’t forget to breathe.

    I know it’s bad but eventually it will get done and you and your wife who will be your friend can get on with your new perspectives.

    You’re a good guy I think Doc. You can do this and come out okay.

    I am sorry you are going through this, as you have nobly tried to avoid all of these complications and delays out of realization that delays would only add to the pain.

    Some things are uncontrollable.  I was sued for the actions of my partner, and it was two years and a bunch of painful depositions before I got dismissed from the case, even though the patient’s wife knew the patient liked me and had a good interaction with me.  The plaintiff attorney used me.  The patient died on the treadmill, and the attorney asked me what I thought of the tracings.  They showed abnormal rhythm, so truthfully my partner should have stopped the study.  I was used and angry and became depressed until one day my attorney asked the wife what the patient had said about me, if anything. It was all positive.  Then I was angry at my attorney.  Why did it take 2 years to discover that the patient liked me and thought I had done a good job??
