The happiest place on Earth

January 20th, 2010 · 141 comments

Josh (formerly of Abbotsford, B.C.) received this doozy of a postcard from his ex, completely out of the blue. “Apparently she wanted to let me know, after more than two years of separation and one year since the divorce was final, that she was really happy we’re not together,” Josh says.

(I’m gonna guess the feeling is mutual.)

Happy Holidays! So glad we're not together.

Adds Josh: “I too wondered why there was no postage mark from California, where the post card was supposedly mailed from. My ex lives in Olympia, Washington, so my guess is between Washington and B.C. there’s a lot of forgiveness.”

    I think the only appropriate response here is, “Wow, what a bitch.”

      No, the only appropriate response is to hire Adam Vinatieri to show up at this bitch’s doorstep, ring her doorbell, and when she opens the door, punt her in the vajayjay so hard, his cleat comes out of her horsetoothed mouth. Yes, bold assumption, but I’m sure her bitchy demeanor is matched by her equally bitchy physical appeal.

      Oh trust me, any PK knows how to punt as well. But I didn’t mean punt in the American Football sense. I meant it in the REAL football sense, where a punt is slang for a kick in general. :P

    Should “fireworks burst over Sleeping Beauty” be taken at face value?

    Or is she sending a subliminal message through the postcard itself?

      I’ve got a feeling that Josh might have some history with Sleeping Beauty, or be into people dressed up as animals and story/comic book characters, and Laurel was relieved that she went to Disneyland, this time, without him. You know, she didn’t want to witness his fireworks bursting over Sleeping Beauty a second time, if you know what I mean.

      By the same token, if Josh was truly over Laurel, the postcard would have been shredded, or better yet, recycled, rather than being on PAN for all to see.

      I’d wager good money that nobody here declaring allegiance Team Laurel would be making any kind of defensive rationalizations for bitchy postcards if the sexes were reversed and it was Josh who sent the exact same postcard to Laurel.

  • #6   Nothing Sacred

    Not gonna lie, last weekend was the one-year anniversary of my worst break-up to date, and I was tempted to send my ex an e-mail consisting of nothing but the lyrics or a video of Ben Folds’ (who we both loved) “Gone.” But I figured it wasn’t worth it and spent the day partying with friends, instead. The fact that I have gotten to know some of them this just in this past year (now that I’m single and able to have more of a social life) made it an even better time. Success–or really just happiness–truly is the best revenge.

      Really, Palomon, was it necessary to ‘correct’ NS’s choice of words? What he/she wrote was perfectly bril as is; your “to put it another way” just smacks of the pompous show-offiness–go ahead, correct THAT–that characterizes a few too many PAN comments.

      I didn’t read that as a correction, I read it as a back-up. Like how in an essay, you would use a famous quote to back up what you’re saying, like Paloman’s using the Herbert quote above.

    Better responses have been written since I decided to write, but I will leave mine the way it is. Couldn’t have said it better than “Nothing Sacred”

    “Dear Josh,

    I know it has been over two years since we parted, but my life is so complete and fulfilling during this most joyous holiday season that instead of sending a postcard to a loved one or enjoying myself at the happiest place on earth, I’m going to focus on someone who did not make me happy.

    I’d say Josh is the lucky one here. And 3 words to Laurel:

      Dear Josh:

      I know the divorce settlement left you living in your car and eating ramen noodles prepared in a gas station bathroom, but I wanted to drop you a postcard and let you know what I’ve been doing with the alimony and child support – two weeks staying on Disney property. Bet you thought I’d actually lost that credit card three years ago. My new boyfriend is an 18 year old Brazilian named Reynaldo. He wanted to pass on his thanks for the hookers, blow, and Lean Cuisine. They were all delicious.

      I am with Josh on this one. I would find it quite satisfying/odd that an ex would send me a postcard 2 years after a break up and from Disneyland no less. It would prove that it was the right decision.

      However, it would probably hurt if it was from a place that I have always wanted to go to but haven’t yet.

      The PA part for me is that damn squiggle! Is that supposed to be some kind of cute party streamer add-on or what!

    I think the meaning of the message – and its patheticness – is largely dependent on *who* ended the relationship. If she did, then yeah, she’s a biatch. If he did, and it was a really hard breakup for her, then I say good for her, and the postcard was probably cathartic.

    I’ll tell her the same thing I told my ex:

    I’m also happy we’re not together anymore, dear. Now, would you please stop sending me emails, letters, texts, and please, please, please (with sugar on top) stop calling me in the middle of the night just to say that, okay? Okay.

    I think Josh can take comfort in the fact that, even though Laurel (?) is glad they’re not together, she apparently can’t get him off her mind, so much so that she’s actually reaching out to make a connection, however bitchy.

    Just FYI, Canadian postal codes can often locate an address to within a house or two, so you might want to erase the postal code as well as the street address.

    Wait, so Laurel/Laurul was in Disneyland -The happiest place on Earth- on the Holidays Season, watching the fireworks burst over the Sleeping Beauty Castle and then she thought: “Hey, I have to report how I’m feeling at this exact moment to my ex, just so he knows how happy I am without him, and totally not thinking of him all the time, yes I’ll do that!”

    That’s not sad at all. I don’t know what you guys are talkin’ about.

      I have to admit. I have an ex named Rachel and two unrequited loves (that came prior to my relationship with Rachel) also with the name Rachel. I can’t help it but whenever I meet a Rachel I do get a little curious. Not saying that it would mean I would move in with them, and be with them for over a year just because of the name… but if it was any other name it wouldn’t even register on my radar. Just sayin…

      Well, let’s see what we have here.

      Josh’s wife left him two years ago, he hoped for a year that she’d change her mind and take him back, then a year ago her divorce went through, and he moved in with you…someone with a name eerily similar to his ex-wife’s.

      Pretty much it in a nutshell…I think the joke is on you. ;-)

      Good guess. He left her. The divorce took a year to go through because she was trying to screw him out of all his money. But I do find your comment amusing. This is all just for fun people. I am starting to wonder if some of you are trying to make us feel bad. But I have never been on a site like this before, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

      If he left her (and of course no one ever leaves us, we leave them), then she’s entitled to screw him out of every red cent of “his money”. Odd how you don’t see married money as “our money”, isn’t it?
      You’ll get it fine when he leaves you for Laurine. ;-)

      How you can trust the word of a man who stood somewhere and swore to be ever-faithful by way of marriage vows and and then left the person he made those vows to is mind boggling…but, he’s yours now.

      I just wonder if some people know how to judge character.
      There should be a class in school for that or something. A seminar at the local Hilton, right after the one selling time shares perhaps.

      Most of the comments on here are funny and entertaining, but a few of the people seem to feel compelled to leave nasty comments and make conclusions and assumptions about people and situations they know next to nothing about.

Should of just stuck to talking with you reasonable people with a sense of humor….since that was the point of all this! :) But I have gained a curiosity about this new (to me) online world and may have come up with an idea for a dissertation.

      I think it’s something Laura ‘should of’ known. Especially if she was writing a dissertation about it. I wonder what her professor will have to say.

      The postcard was douchey, but it was private, addressed to Josh and not addressed to PAN or to all my friends on Facebook.

      Collaborating with boyfriend/husband to post a postcard from his ex for the Internet community to mock (including and beyond Facebook) and then commenting on the postcard as the current girlfriend/wife is not working through issues? Not seeking out validation? From either party, really (Josh and Laura).
      Now, that would make an interesting dissertation.
