A man was annoyed that his wife’s new husband was constantly trying to parent his kids. So, when he saw his own name booted from his child’s contact papers at school, he made a scene. Now, everyone thinks that the stepdad is a weirdo.
His Wife Didn’t Want Any More Children
The man said about his wife remarrying, ‘She remarried a few years ago and made it clear that she wanted no more kids.’
He Was Devastated
The wife’s new husband was devastated that she didn’t want any more kids, but he tried his best to be a good stepdad. Unfortunately, the man’s kids already had a father they looked up to and didn’t feel the need to create a strong bond with their stepfather. That’s when things got awkward.
The Kids Felt Awkward Around Him
The stepdad’s desire to create strong bonds with the man’s children made the kids feel awkward. The stepdad often crossed boundaries, creating tension between him and the man.
His Oldest Was Growing Up
When his oldest was starting middle school, the parents were required to update his registration and contact information. When the man asked his ex-wife about the information, he realized his email was outdated and went to the school to correct it. That’s when he came face-to-face with the stepdad.
It Was Tense
When the man arrived at the school, the stepdad was there dropping some stuff off for his wife. It was a little awkward; they had never really had a relationship, and he had nothing to discuss with the man. So, he decided to correct the forms and get out of there as soon as possible. But when he checked the information, he was shocked at what he read.
He’d Really Crossed a Line
In the section detailing the parent’s information were the man’s ex-wife and the stepdad. The man couldn’t believe it; on his own children’s forms, the father was noted down as the stepdad, and he was merely put in the ‘other’ section. In front of the school staff, the man confronted the stepfather.
It Was Super Embarrassing
Immediately, the stepdad was embarrassed when the father brought up the forms in front of the school staff. He claimed it was a mistake, which the man found hard to believe. The father corrected them, and then left. But when he got home, his ex started messaging him.
He Made Him Feel Like a Criminal
The man said, ‘He told my ex I made him feel like a criminal in front of everyone.’
It Was Immature
His ex reached out and said while she understood why the man had wanted to correct his child’s information, he didn’t have to call out her husband in front of the school staff. She asked him to apologize for creating a scene in the office. But the man felt he was in the right; after all, the stepdad wouldn’t pull a stunt like this again after his embarrassment.
Was He a Weirdo?
Apparently, the stepdad planned on volunteering at the school and didn’t want people to label him as a ‘weirdo’ after the conflict. When the man asked why and what he would be volunteering for, the stepdad said he wanted to work in the classrooms and special events at the school, which the father knew his son would not like this. He was crossing a line again! The man felt that apologizing to the staff or to the stepdad would enable his wife’s husband’s behavior. But maybe he was in the wrong? He asked the internet for advice.
The Internet Responded
One person said, ‘Doesn’t sound like calling out to me, you just noticed, clarified, and corrected a “mistake” that he made.’
Others Chimed in
Another commented, ‘What man fills a form in for another man’s kid and doesn’t list him as a parent?’
