Active Incarceration Order OUT FOR PHILLIP Philip TRACY SMITH OF ELLENWOOD GEORGIA FAILURE TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT

In Afrian American Twitters, African American Bloggers, African American Blogs, african american twitters, black blogger, black bloggers, black twitters, Black Women Bloggers, child support, creepy people, Dekalb County, politics, Poverty on February 3, 2010 at 4:04 am

There is an active incarceration order out for Phillip Tracy Smith and because of this the office of child support enforcement refuses to perform any other child support enforcement actions.   Unfortunately, even if he is stopped by the police of DeKalb County County they will not bring him in because they willfully ignore  any incarceration order concerning the Family.  They like to abuse and rough up women in this county and I think they actively hate them.

At this point the Governor’s Office refuses to intercede usually the first point of contact after child support refuses to do anything.  When I wrote the Governors Office someone contacted me and asked me did I have the SS# of Philip Tracy Smith this can only mean one thing as soon as we have a transition in government they are going to throw the file away and never require him to support the child ever.   The Governors office has been very supportive up to this point but ie.  the child support office refused to get the NC’s SS# even though I gave them his job address and home address THEY SAID THEY DID NOT KNOW HOW TO GET HIS SS#.  The governors office called and the woman called me back  within 15 minutes and said she found the SS#.  At this point they said they’ve issued an active incarceration order out for Phillip Philip Tracy Smith and can do nothing else, like freeze his bank account, suspend his tags, suspend his passport, suspend his DL,.   They will do nothing.  One day I went into the child support enforcement office which has become rather chaotic since they no longer have a security guard stationed at the door and there are women supportive of parents who owe verbally attacking parents seeking enforcement.  At this point I am slightly afraid to go into the office after a woman and her sons followed me to my car after she started railing against a young woman who was not connected with her sons at all and I causally asked her why are you here with your 23 year old son?  What’s wrong with him?  I asked her very calmly but when I left the building they followed me to my car and said nothing.  Another time  I spoke with a man who told me they had an incarceration order out for him for ten years and he continued to work as an engineer up to this point because he finally had problems after the child became an adult and had hired an attorney to get rid of what he owed from the past, unfortunately the message was not relayed to child support enforcement and there he was trying to clear it up and according to him he did without having to pay back pay.  Did I mention he followed me to my car too and asked me to take him home?   In any event, there is no security at the Child Support office and its scary.  Below You will find what Child Support Enforcement told me:

Finally the last time I heard the NC parent Phillip Smith Philip Smith is a Mortgagee Broker you may not want to do any deals with him because since there is an incarceration order out for him the deal may not be valid.  It’s your risk.

Seven years later I have just learned that this man has been stalking me for years. He is a a silent stalker that uses his fraternity to stalk the woman who raised his child without his help.  Philip was not allowed to see his son anymore because he took him to the pool and the kid almost drowned and had to be saved by a life guard. The next week he said he was going to take him to the river I fully believe he was trying to kill my child. Philip is a very dangerous ill human being. He has not sent one birthday present, no graduation present, no congratulations “NOTHING” to this kid that attends an elite college versus the one with him who had to switch to a lower ranked college…. I am not gloating I will all of our kids luck but with a father like that it’s a miracle he’s in college. Phillip has custody of this kid because I said I was not dating a dead beat dad and he preceded to get custody of the kid. He was a mean selfish dad. He would throw stuff on the floor and make the toddler clean up after him. The babysitter had to buy the kids shoes because he only had sandals.  I am going to be legit with you. I met this guy that deliberately got me pregnant and has left and I have found out he has ties to phillip smith. This is how very evil this man is.

The man I am pregnant by asked me not to use birth control he had it under control. He than proceeded to ejaculate in me at which time I put in my VCF. I showed it to him and he was upset and mentioned philip by name. THIS IS SHIT! PURE SHIT!

Tiger Woods Fool of the Decade

In Afrian American Twitters, African American Bloggers, African American Blogs, african american twitters, athletes, black blogger, black bloggers, black twitters, Black Women Bloggers, current events, elein woods, elin woods, entertainment, rachel uchitel, sports on December 29, 2009 at 10:31 am

As an African American Woman I have extremely conflicting emotions towards Tiger Woods.  There is my gut feeling that turns my stomach at the way that he’s treated his wife and his family, and there are the sane rational feelings that tell me no matter what Tiger Woods has done he’s the master of his craft and what I should be studying are his mental strengths and characteristics that allowed him to be the Master of the Masters, that allowed him to be the first nonwhite person to ever win the Masters.  These are qualities worth embracing and loving but lately the stomach turning has not stopped.

Daily there is a new story about Tiger Woods character that literally makes me dislike him and think that he’s a rotten egg.  The tales of mistresses are not enough to make me hate him, he’s married he’s a billionaire his wife can have literally anything in this world she wants except the fidelity of Tiger Woods, not bad for a woman that’s gone from working in a boutique and being a nanny to being the wife of a billionaire.  However the manner upon which he conducted his last affair with Rachel Uchitel,  Joy Behar had to apologize to for saying Uchitel she’s a Hooker, has been startling.  The careless text messages have been jaw dropping Tiger writes the following to Rachel Uchitel,

“I get it. It f—–g kills me, too. I finally found someone I connect with…..”someone I have never found like this. Not even at home.”

Rachel Uchitel

When reading the text messages that Tiger Woods wrote to Rachel Uchitel and connecting them with the persona of Rachel Uchitel  my heart takes over and I feel extreme disgust for Tiger Woods.  Infidelity is wrong but when it appears to be with a a woman who looks like she’s done the whole golf team or helped the whole golf course be unfaithful to their wives, my head cannot reconcile me to the genius athlete that Tiger Woods is.  While I don’t believe that hitting someone in the head with a golf club is the right thing to do, and I do think that Elin  should have seen the inside of a jail at least overnight, I do believe the circumstances that led Elin Woods to clunk her husband on the head could definitely be called a justifiably out of her mind moment. Tiger Woods is alleged to have spent Thanksgiving Day frantically texting Rachel  Uchitel the woman above with her mouth on another woman’s thigh, and with the five guys, he forgot to erase one picture and left his “smart” phone at home with a picture of a naked uchitel on it that she had sent to him that day with the full knowledge that it was the First Thanksgiving of Wood’s nine month old and two is such a precious age for  the other  child, Uchitel chose that day to spend it sending naked pictures to Woods while he was at least trying to be a family man, what a woman!  In any event the wife of Tiger Woods become so enraged by the way that Tiger Woods was treating her and over the picture,  she hit him in the head with a golf club and you know the rest of the saga.

The point to be made here is I am an avid twitterer and texting while with a date, loved ones, and people that you like and respect and have taken the time to be with you is so disrespectful.  I have even twittered that the world did not lose much of a man when AJ  or RJ of  The Real Housewives of Atlanta was killed because I saw one episode of Atlanta housewives and observed whatever his name texting the whole time he was at a party.  If I felt this way watching RJ/AJ I can only imagine my feelings towards watching Tiger woods texting the woman above with her mouth on another woman’s thigh and with the five guys, texting her the whole Thanksgiving Holiday.   I know I would want to clunk tiger on the head too because every time I think of the Atlanta housewives episode with RJ or AJ I get really angry that someone would treat someone like that.

While my head still admires Tiger Woods, my heart is just not with him.  While my head says Elin no longer has to hang clothes on a rack or wipe the nose of someone elses snotty nosed children my heart says nobody should text their mistress in front of their wife. Mistress time is mistress time and home time is home time the two should not mix.  Tiger Woods should have shown some  sort of decency in his dealings with his family and all for what the woman who made Joy Behar apologize to her for saying Uchitel its a Hooker.

The author of this post has nothing against divorce and does not believe marriage should be a life term in the penitentiary, but she does believe that when someone can no longer be the majority of the person the other one married they should be honest and call it quits.  I have no clue what Tiger Woods prenup says but if it says he has to give Elin Woods 300 million dollars if he leaves her then he should have swallowed it and left instead of being the FOOL of The Decade.  Elin Nordgram Woods deserved more so much more than what she got a heartless Prince that drove her insane.

Congratulations Barack Obama and The United States For Your Nobel Prize Win

Barack Obama has brought International prestige and acclaim to the United States with the winning of the Nobel Peace prize.  While the prize was shocking to many, if the citizens of  United States would close their eyes and remember why they voted for him they would realize that he deserves and earned the Nobel Peace Prize.  I can not say that I necessarily agree or even know clearly the rationale of the Nobel committee for awarding the Nobel Peace prize to Barack Obama but I can articulate why I think he deserves the prize.

Barack and Michelle  Obama deserve the Nobel Peace Prize for first of all being able to transcend themselves.  In a world that frequently says you can’t and in a country that had never had a President of color The Obama’s said “Yes We Can”.   They said Yes We can and Did.  Barack Obama did not come from a two parent home with Daddy throwing him up to the sky every night,   Barack Obama even mentions that he comes from a home where people may have told him they were scared of black men because he was raised by his caucasian grandmother.    President OBama’s history and his subsequent accomplishments are a beacon of light to every child around the world who experiences controversies and problems in their lives.  The ability of Barack Obama to overcome himself and his environment is a world class accomplishment, Nobel Prize worthy because one of the hardest things for people to do is to overcome themselves.  Many great thinkers have written about this Napoleon Hill, recitations of the words of Jesus and others.

Barack Obama deserves the Nobel Prize by helping to prove to the world that the United States is not full of racists who hate black people and that the notion that an American Dream is possible for all is a reality not a notion for whites only.  In a sociology class I learned about the third generational theory that all European racial groups who come to the United States can meld into the fabric of the United States and eventually become white or plain American, whereas people of color Asians, Blacks, Latinos, were subsequently out of luck and could never really melt because of their race into an American characteristic.  Barack Obama and the United State shattered this myth by voting for him as President by actually implementing the words of Martin Luther King “not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character”.  The various races of the United States gave Barack Obama a mandate.  Barack Obama was not a president installed by force, given to the United States by some International Super Power he was democratically elected by the American people who said that we don’t care about race anymore just someone willing to work for our interests.

As for the significance of Barack Obama post election we the American People seriously hope that he will use the slogan YES WE CAN to solve our problems as well as take the attitude of YES WE CAN to the world and help solve their problems.      As for what has gone wrong with the Presidency up to know, by and large Obama and the Democrats refuse to ignore the voices that did not elect them.  The only way Obama can keep his promises is to ignore the voices of dissension and keep a straight path and fulfill his promise.

The United States of Chicago, Oprah Queen of the World

In Afrian American Twitters, African American Bloggers, African American Blogs, african american twitters, black twitters, International Relations, politics, Poverty, Race and Class on October 1, 2009 at 8:26 am

While the United States faces amazing obstacles that the president inherited from the previous administration, unemployment, foreclosures, bank closures, and social upheavals the president of the United States has demoted himself to the President of Chicago, winging him up is Oprah Queen of the world.  One wonders if the bid for the Olympics is a true desire for the city of Chicago or just a power play to see if Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama can be crowned King and Queen of World Influence.

While Oprah and Barack seek to be anointed King and Queen of the world ie. First Black President of the United States and Richest Black woman in the world , one wonders why the concept of solving very real problems in the city they call home is one challenge that they seem not to be too interested in solving.  Currently Barack Obama seems to be not too interested in solving Americas problems but getting the Olympics to Chicago, just like he did not seem to be too interested in solving Chicago’s problems but being president of the United  States .

The Quest for the Olympics  seems to be very fake and shallow when there are young men and women beating each other to death on the streets of Chicago.

The quest for the Olympics seems to be a facade when a cold winter is approaching and there are  individuals who may not have heat to heat there homes in Chicago or in Barack Obama’s case the United States.

These are problems that effect all cities not just Chicago but these are problems that Chicago seems not to be interested in taking care of.  To the King and Queen of the World the very real problems of Chicago do not exist for they are essentially saying to the poor of Chicago “LET THEM EAT THE OLYMPICS”

Finally the caveat in the Chicago quest for the Olympics is that they are not that major of a city.  For some of the Olympians this will be there first and only trip to the Olympics.  Honestly now where would you want to be in the summer of 2016 in the mean streets of Chicago or on a Sunny beach in RIO.  Ask the fallen flight of RIO to Paris where they would have rather been.  RIO to PARIS. Straight Shot………..

ITS RIO BABY

4 Things You Must Know About the Rihanna Beating

In Afrian American Twitters, African American Bloggers, African American Blogs, black twitters, Black Women Bloggers, celebrities, entertainment, ethnic twitters, female blogger, female bloggers on March 15, 2009 at 5:51 pm

I have been discussing the Chris Brown and Rihanna beating in a vacuum without knowing the true facts of the incident.  There are several things that I have said that have been just wrong and uninformed.  Honestly I have been taking my information concerning Chris Brown and Rihanna from the Television Media and not the online media blogs, newspapers etc that I take political news from.  However I corrected this today by just being nosy and wondering about the 39 year old woman that it is alleged that Chris Brown had an affair with I found out that the Chris Brown and Rihanna incident is horrific.  If everyone is speculating that Chris Brown will one day kill Rihanna the honest truth is he has already attempted to kill her.  With that let’s begin the list of what really happened so we can have an intelligent conversation with children about the incident.  Every parent in Boston should be ashamed that 50% of their teens believe that Rihanna is at fault for what happened to her.  

Here are the supposed Facts that Show Rihanna was in no way responsible for what happened to her.

Fact #1 Chris Brown is Guilty of Attempted Murder

The following two sources are stating that Chris Brown left Rihanna in the middle of the street unconscious bruised and battered. 

The Huffington Post

“He put his hands around her neck and, according to the insider, said, “I’m going to kill you!”

According to the source, the 20-year-old “Disturbia” singer told police that she lost consciousness, and when she awoke, Brown had fled.”

New York Daily News
It was the first time she hit the town since cops found her battered, alone on a dark street and willing to identify Brown as her attacker the morning before the Grammy Awards.

EurWeb

According to the E! Online source, “He reportedly exited the car and tried in vain to find the keys, then grabbed Rihanna’s neck and began choking her, saying, ‘I’m going to kill you!'”

There are no gray areas here.  If Chris Brown choked Rihanna until she was unconscious and left her in the middle of the street unconscious.  He thought he killed her and left her there.  This is without a doubt attempted murder.  While LA is famous for letting women get killed by superstars ie. Phil Spector  and the Actress Lana Clarkson.  Rihanna is a huge superstar and the charges of attempted murder should have been attached to Chris Brown’s name. 

Fact # 2 Rihanna tried to get out of the car, Chris Brown pulled her back in and beat her. 

I am guilty of saying the following about Rihanna could  have gotten out the car.  According to a New York Daily News report Rihanna did get out the car Chris Brown pulled her back in and beat her.

The New York Daily News

Says the Following:

“They started to argue. She got out of the car. He wanted her to get back in, so he grabbed her. She pulled away. That’s when she’s told people he hit her.”

EurWeb Says the following: 

   The Daily News source explained: “She got out of the car. He wanted her to get back in, so he grabbed her. She pulled away. That’s when she’s told people he hit her.”      

Fact #3  Chris Brown had beat Rihanna Before

According to ABC

“If Brown did hit Rihanna early Sunday morning, it might not have been the first time. According to TMZ.com, the 20-year-old pop star told police that Brown had abused her before the weekend attack that reportedly left her bruised and bloodied and that the violence was getting progressively worse. ”

Us Weekly magazine also quoted unnamed sources close to Rihanna who claim this isn’t the first time Brown’s beaten and bruised her.

According to Fox News

” The problem with that, Greta — well, there are several, but one of them is she told cops he did it to her before and it was escalating violence”  

Fact #4 Rihanna is suffering from Battered Wifes Syndrome. “

We all blame Rihanna for going back to Chris Brown but she is suffering from Battered Women’s Syndrome.  This syndrome can ultimately end up in her death as it almost did the night of the Grammys.  There is no where to go but down.  If  Rihanna stays with Chris Brown and he’s not locked up he will eventually kill her. 

Resources for reading up on battered women’s syndrome can be found here: 

Global Oneness Battered Women’s Syndrome

Canadian Medical Journal Battered Wife Syndrome

Finally I’ve done a paper on the Battered Wife syndrome and the thing that any person needs to know is  if a person hits you once in a threatening manner they will hit you again.

 

I am finished with this issue.  I can only pray now. 

 

 

 

 

Phillip Tracy Smith Stop The Negative Comments to My Blog

In African American Bloggers, African American Blogs, black blogger, black bloggers, Black Women Bloggers, child support, family, female blogger, female bloggers, politics on March 3, 2009 at 1:25 pm

Hello Phillip recently because of you I had to stop open comments to my blog.  This is something that I don’t believe in.  I believe that anybody who wants to comment can. However I had to delete your comments because they were so full of lies.

In addition your wife proceeded to make comments also,  by that time I was holding comments for moderation. Because of this your wife’s work url was revealed.  If you all continue to write negative comments to the blog.  I will have to fax the comments to her employer and request that their employees cease commenting to my blog. Furthermore in your wife’s comment she mentioned that what has to be paid is such a small amount.  If  it’s so small then why don’t you pay it.  It’s not so small now since you’ve missed 4-5 months though.   ” PAY IT”

With that said I am releasing comments to no-moderation because frankly I don’t want any-ones information emailed to me. I want people to be able to make totally anonymous  comments.

This started because Phillip Smith you have not paid child support.  You have not paid child support for the last 4-5 months.  No one seems to care that you have not paid.  Usually by now a court date would have been established like it has been for the last several years but this year someone has dropped the ball and is letting you get away with not paying.

I find it rather strange you are not paying.  Your daughter in San Diego is now 19 and you no longer have to pay child support for her so you should be able to handle this child support payment to your son.

If individuals are looking for background on this issue, please refer to this blog entry

Furthermore Philip Tracy Smith I left a message with your mom that your son had Pnemonia two weeks ago and noone from your family could call and see if he’s OK.  This is pathetic that you can comment to my blog but you can not enquire about your child.  Let’s refer back to what your mom said when I met you she said you were a nice guy and asked me to please be nice to you.  Your family can’t even inquire about a child with their blood, yet they are asking a 23 year old women to take care of a 43 year old man.   This is disgraceful.

Furthermore, when your son was ill when he was little my mother was at a supposed friends house and she said you called this friends house who you had met at your sons christening.  I did not believe her until I saw where your wife worked.  I know this friend has gotten jobs at this place for many of her relatives especially the ones she pulled strings for to get them into  undergrad and then medical school after they flunked out of a famous military academy.  So if you see this mutual friend tellher I said hello becsue I’m pretty sure she pulled the strings to get your wife this job.

Phillip Tracy Smith of Ellenwood Georgia Refuses to Pay Child Support again this Year(Fact) Part II

In African American Bloggers, African American Blogs, black blogger, black bloggers, Black Women Bloggers, family, female blogger, female bloggers on February 2, 2009 at 11:08 pm

You know I insist on airing my dirty laundry on this blog as it relates to Philip Tracy Smith. It is not how Philip Tracy Smith of Ellenwood Georgia has treated me it’s how he has treated our son in many ways.

As I stated in a prior post Philip Smith originally of Valejo California  called his mother and asked her to tell me he was a decent person because I did not have much interest in him.  Mrs. Smith told me a 23 year old woman the her son a 43   year old man was a decent person.  What she failed to tell me was that he had a daughter that he was not supporting, I had to find that out while going through his mail, mail he encouraged me to go through because he wanted me to know everything about him.  What she did not tell me was that when Phil was 17 he and his mother took his girlfriend to an abortion clinic and her parents never found out.  This is what he told me when I told him I thought abortion was disgusting.

His mother on his encouragment told me that he was a nice person and asked me to be decent to him and then he nor his family can be decent to my child.  I called and asked if they would relay a message to him that it was very important that he pay child support this Christmas since he has never paid child support in December he always skips November, December, January, and February and then we go to court in March.

Well, when I called his house because I have always been cordial to his family to ask that they tell him to pay his saster Karen said: Don’t bother my mother about this this is between you and Phillip.  Well I had not meant to bother anyone I just wanted a message delivered to my child’s father that he needed to pay child support for Christmas.  I was a little taken aback considering my parents are very generous grandparents and know that Philip Tracy Smith has not paid.  I suppose even though his mother told me that her son was “decent.  She did not care to deliver a message regarding her grandson to her very very decent son.

You know there are some other things that I may wish to say like that he was fond of wearing pink shorts to Piedmont Park and sitting where the homosexuals sit but I won’t say that.

Is there a Moratorium On Collecting Child Support “Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Meets In Atlanta”

In African American Bloggers, black bloggers, Black Women Bloggers, democrats, family, female blogger, female bloggers, politics, The Economy on January 26, 2009 at 7:06 am

The other day a dear friend called me and said I’m coming to Atlanta for my fraternity meeting. We started to talk and I suppose he remembered that my sons father was in the same Fraternity he was in and he said I know he pays child support, he’s a Morehouse Alpha. I had to say no he does not pay child support. No one seems to want to make him pay child support and since Barack Obama has been elected he has not paid child support and probably won’t.

In Georgia we know that if there is a Democrat in office men are not going to support their children. I remember we had a Democratic Governor in Georgia and the child support workers were losing files, could not find a non paying father and were generally nonfeasent, misfeasent, and malfeasent.

In my case if anyone sees Philip Tracy Smith of Ellenwood, Georgia, a non-payer to at least two children one in Texas and one in Atlanta supposedly who owns a staffing agency and writes up mortgages and who’s license should be suspended please tell him to pay child support.

Furthermore if you want to know how I hooked up with him. I told him when we were thinking about dating that he just did not seem to be the sort of person I was interested in because he had a lot of problems. What did he do? He called his mother and had her tell me that he was a good person, he just had problems, but was a decent individual.

In addition I left him for talking about a woman who was just a friend too much. He slept outside of my door all night and asked for forgiveness. Who is he married to know? This woman. He is a certified rat.

Years later he’s not paying child support, though his Frat brother is sure that he is or should be and he’s not.

Finally as the senate looks to confirm Eric Holder as head of the Department of Justice who might also be a member of this fraternity, I’m not sure though my friend insisted on naming a long line of frat folks to me on the phone he did not mention Holder so he’s probably not; in any event all women should be mindful that Holder might be prepared to have the justice department look left while deadbeat dads refuse to pay child support.

Christmas Hell

In African American Bloggers, African American Blogs, black blogger, black bloggers, Black Women Bloggers, female blogger, female bloggers on December 24, 2008 at 9:02 am

This has been one of the strangest Christmases for me.  Instead of riding around buying video games this year I actually had to go into another section and buy other things for my children this year.   This has created an untold crisis   in my life hah hah, not really funny though, when my daughter requested a bike I went into Toys R Us in Lithonia and purchased a simply gorgeous bike for her that had to be assembled.  I asked the  counter lady well can I leave it here until Christmas Eve, an adamant no I received, so instead of picking the bike up in 24 hours I picked it up in 48 hours and boy was I glad I did because I did not bring the bike home.  As they brought the bike to the floor the first thing I noticed was that the tires were dirty, then as I got closer I noticed that there was dust all over the bike and the tires were flat.  I told the man who brought it to me, this bike is used.  No he said it’s not used.  I looked at the handle bar and the black plastic part of the handle bar had a dent in it.  I then looked down and the place between the kick stand and bike chain had some terrible gook in it, it had so much gook in it that I reached my finger in it and could rub it all over the toys r us counter. Oh no I said you’re going to have to give me a new bike not an old one.  Just to make sure that I was not  loco I walked to the back of the store and looked at the display bike, the tires were hard and not soft and the tires were clean.  The mystery was clearly solved,they were not giving me a new bike; they were trying to give me an old and groddy bike to take home and put under the tree.  This was a cruddy take back bike.  The man who brought me the take back bike and had told me the bike was new came up to me and told me that he realized that the bike was old and that he could not tell the difference because he was raised by his grandparents and only knew what a used bicycle looked like but for some reason he know knew what a new one  looked like since I had walked to the back and saw a new one.  He agreed to assemble a new bike immediately unfortunately this did not happen because the man who assembled the bikes walked up to me and told me that he was “not” going to assemble another bike because it was time for him to get off.  The bringer of the bikes guy then asked me to come back the next day and gave me a ten dollar refund for the assembly fee.   When I returned home I saw my daughter  had been taken out by her grandmother to get her hair fixed.  My mother had taken her to Ricks Styles and Cuts.  My mother and I had a conflict I was partial to Dominican hairstylists because of the texture of my daughters  hair, but my mother had a thing for Ricks.  As I walked in the door I started screaming, my daughters hair which is passed her shoulders when straightened from her curly box of hair was straightened to an upper neck bob.  I also noticed that it looked mighty thin.  When the Dominicans fixed it, it was fluffy and full. The one thing the Dominican said to me when I left her to fix my daughters hair is I will treat her like she’s my own daughter and she did.  As I looked at my daughter who had gone to Ricks   I continued to scream not talk but just screamed.  I had braided my daughters hair for three years so when she hit middle and high school her hair could be down to her elbows.  I would take it out for two weeks at a time in three month increments so that it could rest, it was in the resting period and my mother took her to a hairstylist who had just cut it off.  Well my cousin came to pick up my daughter and they returned home the next morning and I started screaming more because my daughters hair had reverted to it’s curly state and the reason my daughters hair had appeared so thin when I first saw it was because the hairstylist had chopped off all of the back of my daughters hair and let the top hang down over the back of her head.   I was floored.  I was in Christmas Hell.    At this point my daughter could not get all of her hair in a bow to the back of her neck.  Honey I said it’s going to be a doo rag day for you and wrapped her head up in a scarf.  Luckily she has a very beautiful face and looked great.  She looked so great that while we were in Wal-Mart an apparently mildly retarded patron walked up and said that ones a girl, you don’t even have to look for her earrings.

As for the bike I had tossed and turned all night and made the decision that if Toys R Us gave us a wrecked bike we really could not trust them to assemble a bike for us.  We went to Target, they were out of bikes, then we went to Wal Mart and though the first Wal- Mart did not have a bike we could use. They were sold out of 20″ bicycles for boys and girls.  We went to our Lithonia Super Center Wal- Mart and they had a bike a wonderful bike that was already assembled that we took off of the rack.  Less Christmas Hell but still mournful of my daughters hair, I think the hairstylist at Ricks Styles and Cuts needs to be put in jail, she’s done worst to my daughter than Micheal Vick ever did to a dog, but Hey That’s Life.
