Sorry, folks but I feel the need to vent. I have been having serious trouble with my eldest son for several years now. He is a very strange man and I am not sure how much is an act and how much is real. He arrived at my place on Saturday afternoon and said he was in Hobart for the weekend but had nowhere to stay. I foolishly let him stay for two nights because the weather was bad and I didn't want him sleeping out in it. However this morning he said he was catching a bus up north. He started to pack up his things but couldn't find his phone. He said 'What have you done with my phone?" I said "I haven't touched your phone". He then accused me of stealing it anf said I was fucking with his head. I told him to stop being so silly. He called me a fucking bitch. I told him he had no right to talk to me like that in my own house. He threw a container of talcum powder at me. I told him to leave. After saying a few more very hurtful things to me he left but he grabbed my keys as he did and now I can't lock my doors. I rung up the police and asked them for help. They told me to change the locks. I told them I was scared my son would come back and that he had a record for assault on women. The police looked up his record and told me he had no convictions of assault at all. I said that he went to prison twice for assault on his girlfriend. The policeman said no, he has never been to prison. I said he must have been because the prison had actually rung me and asked if I would accept a phonecall. The policeman insisted that he has never been to prison at all. So it seems that my son got someone whose voice I didn't recognise to ring up and pretend to be from the prison and asked me if I would accept a call from him. When my son told me that he was in prison for an assault on his girlfriend I told him I wouldn't be visiting him.I have had the fact that I didn't visited thrown up in my face several times since. I am through with him. I will get my locks change (today if I can) and I am not going to talk to my son again.
