What to do about a whinging Seppo...?

Alright, so my wife and I have an Aussie friend (female) who met a guy from New York, moved over there, got pregnant and came back here to have the kid, who is now 2yo. We've welcomed them with open arms and had many bbq's and helped with babysitting, had play dates with the kids etc...

 

Now, you wouldn't believe it, but apparently unplanned pregnancies aren't all they are cracked up to be, and things aren't working out. The father wants to go back to NYC because he's bored in Australia, but the mother (our friend) is staying put as she got support over here from her family (his family actually live in LA). He's 42yo and likes the edgy lifestyle that NYC offers, and he'd prefer to be hanging in cool bars or bike/skate shops with his BMX and fixy riding mates than chillin in Cheltenham.

 

So the issue is that lately he's been slagging off about Australia, and his partner, constantly on facebook. Things aren't going well for them, and he's really hating it here, and while I want to help him out and be a friend, I think I'm about to smash his head in.

 

Here's a sample of the sh*t he's been saying...

 

For those of you living in America, I hope you appreciate what you have. I f***ing hate my life down here and I have to endure this sh*t, empty life because I can't leave my son. Appreciate what you have America. It's greener on your side. It's empty down here.

 

Had yet another ■■■■■■ Father's Day filled with nothing. Every holiday down here has been filled with nothing. Remembered by nothing and no one. Here's to doing nothing with no one other than meaningless small talk for the next 15.5 years.

 

How do you think this makes the mother feel?? Anyway it's gonna be hard to be there for her and the kid without calling the father out on his bullsh*t.

 

Tell him to support Carlton or Melbourne and go to the snow.

Sounds like a bit of a wanker. I think you should tell him that.

Would she be a hot single mum?

USA USA USA

A b*tch slap for a b*tch

He’s clearly suffering from depression.

AMERICUUUUUHHHH! ■■■■ YEAH!

He's clearly suffering from depression.

Sacked without play?

So why doesn't anyone want him to just leave?

I will chip in for his ticket.

Sacked without play?

Nah, I was being serious. The guy clearly has depression. Isolation (or the feeling of) is one of the biggest kickers in that regard

give him a wristy.

give him a wristy.


Wristys are depression's kryponite

Agreed.  The whole emptiness/desolation/isolation/resentment thing are absolutely textbook depression symptoms.  Been far too close to that myself at times.  Horrible to expereince, and equally horrible for a partner to live with.

 

Bloke sounds very much like he needs help, in all seriousness.

Tell him to grow the fark up, take responsibility for his actions and stop being such a ■■■■■■■■.

Call customs

Give him a cuddle.

 

Then knock him out.

Give him a cuddle.

 

Then knock him out.

so you know how big to dig the hole in your backyard

Give him a cuddle.
 
Then knock him out.


Ah Diggs, that was great, made my day !
