26. "She's raking in the cash --" because his $1K is SO MUCH MONEY.
Nervy wench even BOUGHT A CAR -- ooh! (Is he hoofing it everywhere?) Why, that's TWELVE THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR -- still below poverty level in Michigan, but hey, why let reality interfere with your "poor him" fantasy?

I love how you refer to it as HIS money -- actually, it is HER money. He is making a financial contribution to the support of HIS child (and a paltry one at that). I am okay with him going to jail if he stops making those payments. You obviously feel sorry for this guy; I don't. She's taking care of her child, and expecting him to behave like a responsible adult -- I'm sure he was projecting himself as someone she could trust when he was sharing her bed. Babies happen; I've read further down the list how it was "all her fault" because of the "birth control scam" but I think you had it right with your first take: he was being irresponsible, and got someone knocked up. Now, he is being held financially responsible until the child turns eighteen.

Welcome to adulthood -- the bills don't stop because bad things happen.
