Ss's been offered multiple scholarships. We have to put together his
scholarship folder for the career center at school. It requires color
copies of all of his awards. I learn from ss that bm sent him black and
white copies of 3 awards I didn't know she had in her possession. I
explain the copies have to be color, and she can get them scanned, and
sent to us, or send us the originals.
Bm keeps saying, "Maybe she'll do it" and "They're not
due for a couple of weeks" implying she won't do it at our request,
tho we have reasons to need the copies now to get scholarships we've
personally pursued for ss, and I can't do the work of scanning, reducing
(only 6 pages allowed in folder of awards), in a couple of weeks because
of a variety of heavy time consuming stuff coming up.
I told ss, "If the color copies aren't here by Tue next week,
we'll just submit black and white copies of what your mom has."
To my amazement I hear the next day that bm tried to have the awards
scanned at Kinko's, they wouldn't do it cuz of the Golden State Seal -
copyright reasons, and she's now sending the originals to us
The next day ss goes off on me about how controlling and manipulative I
am. I come to realize that bm didn't send the award copies without a lot
of complaints that ss bought into. His shenanigans again didn't get him
the result he wanted - intimidating me. Bm will be disappointed again her
manipulations didn't work.
