casual reminder

I received another court subpoena for Ex S yesterday.

I say another, as they've been arriving – hand delivered - for two years now. Unless this is a different one, which is very likely. Traffic fines.

The resentful, sad part of me says, “Arrest him, he didn't have the balls to tell me about his freak, whirlwind engagement, so why the fuck should I tell him that the cops want him in the slammer?”

Also, remember Ex S has basically announced me dead, and dead people can't hand over subpoenas to alive people.

But writing it here on this blog, means he's bound to find out sometime that he's in contempt of court. So this is my way of letting him know (because I'm dead) that he has a court date. Some judge out there is mighty pissed with him and his alarmingly gold vehicle.

But maybe putting him in jail for a day or two would teach him a few manners.

I must commend you on your post-mortem eloquence. Most dead people I know tend to try and articulate themselves by means of moaning and clanking chains.

Peas on Toast said...

Why thanks! I am moaning though- in bed today and not helluva well.

Nessers said...

My kids watch this drivel on telly called "Ghost Whisperer". What you need to do is get one of those to tell him that you have a message from him from inside the light and that you have forgiven him for being a c*nt and please can he change his address as you postbox on the other side can't take more of his suppoenas hehehe

Peas on Toast said...

As interesting as that is Nessers, it would take way too much effort. Just doing him the favour of putting it on here so that Champagne Heathen can read this, and pass the message onto his fiancee who'll pass the message onto him, was effort.

Dead people really just like to lie in coffins and stuff.

Hat off to you...you make one hell of an entertaining 'dead' person!

Mighty nice of you to let him know via your blog...silly twat...he sounds like a right does!

Peas on Toast said...

Kab - {gritting teeth}, he had his good points too, there's no doubt, otherwise I wouldn't have stayed with him so long. And hey, although he wishes I was dead, I only want him to be happy.

Sometimes :)

Vimbai said...

That was mighty generous of you!

However, in keeping with your dead persona...i would forget about the mail, and if he ever comes a-knocking again demanding why u didnt notify him, feign innocence and argue (in a sickly sweet manner) that dead people aren't that big on communication unless a seance or John Edwards is in the room!

Peas on Toast said...

Vimbai - ha ha, "please call John Edwards, he's my lawyer and will liaise with you."

:)

That guy you know said...

I am curious Peas, when in the name of hell do you find the time for your posts. It's like clockwork erryday! Like what do you do, coz I want that job so I can harp around the net all day!

Peas on Toast said...

That guy - I'm an excellent multi-tasker. In between this, I write, edit, email, and even eat.
I write my posts after hours, and it's therapy for me. So it's not something I force myself to do, but rather I have to contain it.

Writing is my life. :)

Storm said...

shame peasy...are you sick?

Ruby said...

well Miss on Toast...I think you have done quite enough for him today. I think all of us have a soft spot for each Ex we've ever had, no matter how crap they treated us in the end. And even tho you would just love to see them all rot, you just can't help yourself...you have to help in at least a teeny tiny way.

That guy you know said...

ah ok that sound reasonable. I was thinking I dont have a moment during the day to write. Oh snap started a website for writers. www.writersclub.co.za for those who love to write, or you can join my group on crackbook by the same name.
An outlet for the writers of the world.

Ok shit my lunch is overs gotta run!

Peas on Toast said...

Storm - yeah a little, thanks babe. I'm thinking it may be gastro, but am in bed...

Ruby - for sure. I suppose that's what makes us human. If he phoned me because he was stuck in the middle of a desert and for some odd reason, his fiancee wasn't around to help, I'd still help him. No matter how shit he was to me. Odd hey.

thatguy - ooh, will take a look, thanks dude. Multi-tasker yourself there on crackbook I see :)

Jam said...

Hahahahaha. I have endless fines arriving at my house for my ex. Eventually, they SERVED a paper at my gate which I had to sign for as well...
and I did phone him in the end since I figured that if I had signed for the document, I could be held in contempt of court.

Peas on Toast said...

Jam - oh yikes, yeah just as well! I signed one too, even on the basis saying "He doesn't live here anymore."

It's interesting to see though, turns out he jumped a red light. And before that was speeding. And now they have a court date in place. Do they impound cars over this stuff?

Revolving Credit said...

Why not just tell them where he works so that they can serve it on him, maybe even arrest him later, in his offce!

Getting arrested at the Xmas party...sounds fun!

Peas on Toast said...

Oh classic Rev. Hahahahahahahahaha!

And please specifically at the Xmas party. Or while conducting a presentation at the boardroom table. But Xmas party is a real little knee slapper!

The Divine Miss M said...

I was off sick yesterday Peas, I know the feeling :( Curled up on my couch with my duvet and watched really bad daytime tv all day!

I'm loving your parktown prawn a-z - did you ever manage to kill it?

I wouldn't tell the ex, why should you? ;) Paybacks a bitch!

Ruby said...

@ the Christmas party....gr8 idea!!!

Just ensure that you have a hidden camera somewhere so you can see the reaction

Jam said...

I wouldn't worry. Being a ghost, you won't be locked up and if you are, you can just float through the walls. Initially, I used to tear up the traffic fines.....now I am feeling a little kinder.

Anonymous said...

what I find very big of you is to describe the vehicle in question as "gold", I've always thought of it as the worst kind of metallic mustard yellow.

Peas on Toast said...

Anonymous - hahahahahahahahahahahaha, indeed it is. Pity though, cos it sure use to drive nicely. But only when I wasn't looking at the bonnet.

Hilda said...

Peas - Sorry to interrupt your lovely blog comment session, but I've been one of your faithful readers here in California for a while. I'm "Boots" aka "Hilda", and you may have heard of me through Surface Tension.

Anyway, I have a new blog up and running, and wanted to beg you for some feed-back, and/or some assistance in getting the word out about it.
