Fuck Me

What the fuck do I know

I know frustration and pain and longing

I know that there are children in this world with my DNA

But I don't know them

I'm tired of trying to call them and not getting to talk to them

I'm tired of sending birthday and Christmas presents and not getting

as much as an acknowledgement

who knows if they got them? I don't.

Communication is a two way street

We live in an age of email, text messaging, skype, web cams and I can't get the time of day

from my own children.

What the fuck did I ever do to deserve this?

I was there when it mattered, now they don't even remember me.

This is the year that I truly let them go

Ball is in their court, if their mother doesn't take it away.

Letter of recommendation

Don't be afraid to ask twice for a letter of recommendation.

Just got this email back from one of my X-mas parties (after the second request)

Tom, Happy New Year!! Sorry for the slow response. Been just slammed with year end client reviews going on. You were absolutely terrific. I will put something together in the next couple of days and e-mail it down to you. Thanks,
