And the other jerk award (in the family) goes to...

Tony's daughter... He and she are on the outs ever since she blocked him on Facebook. She had a dispute with her brother over late payments for a car, took the car away after getting in his wife's face (she was 8 mos pregnant), which lost him his job. She decided that her dad would take her brother's side, so she blocked him. Since then she's done some things that were disrespectful or even downright hurtful, but I've kept track of her on Facebook, and I let her know now and then what's going on with him. I dropped her a note that he had an upcoming surgery. No reply for a while, but then on Sunday she told me, very rudely, that she wasn't interested in hearing about her father, and in future I could pass that information on to his only child instead, ie her brother. Well, I rather lost it, and ended up telling her off for blocking him, and then expecting him to come around to her. She owes him an apology really, although I did tell him I would like it if he did get in touch, after all she's his child. Anyway, she went off on me for defending that "selfish jerk", and said he should call her to get her side of the story. She said a lot of nasty things, and played the victim and so on. I didn't tell her he can't contact her, since she's got him blocked, and when his phone broke he lost all her contact information. He's basically taken the attitude that she's turned her back on him, and she's apparently decided that he's turned his back on her too. What a mess. Meanwhile, she must have been going around to other family members and playing victim, as his step-sister left him a nasty message on Facebook about how he should be a father to both his children. She obviously has no idea the whole story, and he isn't about to tell her anything. So much fun...
