In which Primo asks the lawyer if he needs to do anything with Ted'sSon's trust and the lawyer offers Primo a great way to bail
Primo: I emailed the lawyer because I didn't know if I was supposed to be doing anything. He wrote back that for Ted'sSon's trust, we could set it up the way his existing trust is structured.
Me: How's that?
Primo: I would be the primary trustee. Bif [Ted's half brother from his mom] would be my backup trustee. Ted and Ted'sWife would be his backups.
Me: So you could resign?
Primo: I could resign and then Bif could decide what to do. If he doesn't care if Ted and Ted'sWife are trustees, neither do I. I just don't care anymore.
Me: You don't want to be the cop?
Me: Your parents didn't trust Ted to handle the money but they didn't want to make a lawyer be the trustee.
Primo: I know. They stuck me with it.
Me: Nice. This is supposed to foster good relations between you and your half brothers?
Primo: Yes I'm sure that was their intention. And look how well it's working.
Me: It's a lovefest.
Primo: I am going to tell Ted he needs to get Ted'sSon's information to the lawyer and I'm going to tell the lawyer to set it all up and then I am going to resign. I just don't care what happens. I don't want to deal with this anymore.
