A few weeks ago, I reached out to my ex-AH to let him know that he was in violation of our divorce decree; he still owed a fair sum on a debt for which he is responsible. I sent him an email, warning that if it wasn't paid by April 1, he would be going back to court, and paying for it, as stipulated in the decree. I fully expected him to blow this off; I reached out to my attorney, and waited.
Lo and behold! He's paid all but $14 of the debt!! Yep all but $14. Why? It's always the same answer: Because he enjoys being a jerk. But, I don't care!!! I can afford the $14 and close the account. Yet another chink in my armor is now closed. And yes, he's finally learned that I will follow through and hold him accountable, even when nobody else does. I will not take on his responsibilities.
FYI, I sent him an email, letting him know he made a mistake and he should pay off that $14. But I did that for fun. And it was fun!
I don't care about that -- I just want to be done with him, and it will be the best $14 I have ever, EVER spent!
