Divorce child syndrome


My new job consists of me supporting two separate and distinct groups. At first this was exciting. Now I’ve realized that I am suffering from the divorced child syndrome (DCS.)
Because the two factions don’t talk to each other I am the intermediary. Thus I can now manipulate things to my satisfaction. You know the scenario ‘daddy suffers from the guilt of not spending enough time with the kid, so daddy throws in a couple of extra dollars every now and then.’ In my case it’s a lot of good work cheers and pats on the back, for no apparent reason. Also since both groups assume I am getting enough attention and love from the other party, I am left in peace to attend to my ‘normal’ activities.

Sort of a good thing, but like the poor DCS, I am starting to feel a little lonely.

LOL...I'm with jdid. And when u get the raise, use it to pay the heating bill so you can get hot water in the morning.

Sorry...couldn't resist. :)

At least you are not the child of an actual divorce.

I believe this is a serious thing that could damage the mind. All that freedom tells them that they can do whatever they want. They shouldn't get attention 24/7. But they should be tended to at least every three to six hours, no greater or less. That could push or limit their freedom.
