In which Ted sends us a copy of his will

Primo: Ted sent another email.

Me: I know. You  just told me.

Primo: No! In addition to that one!

Me: About what?

Primo: He included copies of their wills and trusts.

Me: WTF? Why? We do not need to see their will!

Primo: He says maybe his will can help us as we review our will. Because they have a "top flight" wills and estates lawyer.

Me: He is such a presumptuous jerk.


  1. I just saw this the other day and thought, "I'll bet this is the way Ted would woo a woman."

    I then realized that I might be reading your blog too much. ;)

    1. I just read this and was cracking up. Yes! That is Ted! So clueless! So sure!

    2. I must not have been logged in above. Sorry!

      The part where he says multiple times in one paragraph that he isn't being condescending and then proceeds to be condescending the whole letter was where I just "saw" Ted. Women! They can't even tell how they feel without that guy telling them, eh?

    3. I know! The LW is so, so sure that he is right. That is Ted all over.

    4. I just re-opened the link so I could read this to Primo and realized reading the comments that this is not fiction! This guy exists! Holy. Smoke.

      All these years I thought my ex-husband was an only child; turns out he has at least two brothers: Ted and "Richard." That's exactly how he sounded in every letter he sent and phone call he made for YEARS after I left him. (SHUDDER)

    6. GD: I know! I don't suffer fools gladly, so the first time the guy said, "I have feelings for you and expect you to carry the burden of that for me," he would have been out on his ear.

      Queen of France: I'm so sorry to hear that you've had to deal with someone like this. I have an ex that didn't get the hint for too many years. If he had written letters like that, I don't know what I would have done. Ugh.


Sorry about the new commenting requirements - I have been getting spammed like crazy.
