Totally Frenched Out

From the blogger formerly known as Samdebretagne

Thursday, May 29, 2008

Fab just had the nerve to call and say that we owed taxes this year, and could I please send him a check for 300€. My response? "Ha! Consider it a break-up tax honey. You owe me, not the other way around". (Not to mention that he would've had even more to pay had we not been pacsed). His reply? "Yeah, you're right, but you have to admit it was worth a try"!!

Good answer. What gall, even if he didn't really expect to get anything from you!

He needs to take some lessons in how to be a gentleman.

You "kept it real", and he responded. There has to be a certain satisfaction in that. Nice work, Sam!

Oh la la... You know he just wanted an excuse to call you... even though it was a lame-ass excuse, at that.. The nerve... I know he is really feeling the loss, while you... on the other hand, my dear, are enjoying a beautiful view from your bedroom window... You will get everything done, of course... and have time enjoy the Paris that we all know and love... You will have a wonderful time exploring this city!! Take care and enjoy your beautiful view!!

You actually might want to pay that tax as proof of your relationship and status at the time the taxes in question were generated. Particularly if your name is on the tax return documentation and you get a receipt for the $300 euros. Is your name on the tax return?

You will want to be able to document your domestic arrangements right up to the last conjugal moment.

If you think that the French don't look at that when they're handing out passports, you might want to reconsider.

Just a thought...

Sam, I'm honestly wondering just how you managed to share a bed with this guy because his balls, they've got to be HUGE to try a thing like that. Gah!

Doc, you crack me up.

And don't worry, framéricaine, both of our names are on the tax return but Fab is going to pay the entire bill. He pays less taxes when my income is taken into account. But either way, he knows he has no right to ask me for money at this point!!

I agree with Leesa, he gave up too easily, probably just wanted to hear your voice.

Well, at least you know you're better off without him, n'est-ce pas? And Paris! I am SO jealous because it's STILL raining in Brittany and I, for one, have had enough of mud and cows and bloody rain! I'm all set to packup and leave and go get me a Life again!

PS Thanks for coming back to collect me,I thought we'd lost touch!
