Can't buy me love

We received a Christmas card today from Rick's parents with a $1000 check inside. Funny. I actually only opened it by mistake, as I would normally have it returned to sender.

Whats the going rate for forgiving a sexual predator these days? Surely more than $1000.

Fascinating what people will do for attention.

Can't think of anything funny to say...but what the hell does his mother think about all this?

What what what?
Sorry, I haven't been a regular that long, so I guess I'm missing something.

Forgiving a sexual predator is a scenario I can thankfully never understand, much less someone I am related to.

I do know, from painfull personal experience that if you can't dig deep and forgive those who have wronged you, it eats you up inside (hat tip to Don Henley).

You don't have to forget however. Cut 'em off. Period.

Hm.

There are so many ideas and counterideas running around my head right now that it's just... ridiculous.

On one hand, I'd say cash the check and buy stuff 'we' sell... just for the sheer irony of it.

On another hand, returning the whole thing in another envelope (proving you've opened it and still don't want anything to do with them) has a certain vindictive charm.

On someone else's hand (I only have two) returning the whole thing sans cashed check in another envelope (proving you've opened it, still don't want anything to do with them, but won't say no to a nice chunk of money) also has a certain vindictive charm.

I wonder if they sent a check that large just because they expected you to send it back...?

Or maybe... ooh! OOH! I know! Cash the check, donate some or all of it to a charity that works with sexually abused or against abusers, and send them a photocopy of the donation form...

If they want attention, give them the kind of spotlight-on-your-dumb-ass attention they think they've skated free from.

Then again, I'm a vindictive, vengeful sort of person... and sex offenders grind my beans.

Yeah.. my grandfather used to think $50 would buy him a "nice" kiss. Asshole.

Crap, I just drop by to see what's up and maybe make fun of a post but damn, I don't want to know the story behind that. That's just wrong and sad. I think I'll chug another gallon of Chlorox with my breakfast this morning.
Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Taste like Happy!...and burning.

Yeowch. I love the idea of cashing the check, donating it to a fund for victims of sexual predators and sending the donation receipt back to them. But, the truth is, it's probably better to just tear it up, toss it away and move forward. While revenge might feel nice for a moment or two, it only stirs up contact between you and allows for more of it.

who said anything about forgivness? take the money and run! never mention it to them. spend it on what you want and when its gone say "well that was fun" and go on. maybe fill in the memo area "first payment"

"never let them see u sweat"

The best thing for you would be not to deal with the check or Rick's folks at all. Do tear it up.

That said, my first thought was to countersign the check over to a charity for abused women and children. Don't let it soil your bank account at all.

It's sad that some injustices done to us will always irritate us no matter how much you have pushed on to get passed it and live your life. Sorry that those emotions had to be brought up for you this week.

I really like Celtric Frog and other's ideas of donating it to a charity for those who suffered from sexual abuse.

Or you could really get ironic and use the money to hire a thug to go do some damage to the putz. Maybe a big homosexual thug, even? LOL

sexual predator? I am a little lost on this post. If Papa was a so called sexual predator maybe mom is trying to make-a-mends. Mom is maybe having a tough time too. How does your husband feel about it? If it bothers so much go ahead and donate the check to any charity and send a card to your parents in laws telling them that you donated the money to charity
