In this bonus episode, “Mission Abort,” we share a listener's story and their experience with a guy we’ll call Max. Max described himself on Bumble as a “6’3″ 235lb barrel-chested freedom fighter. Love my dog, love to laugh.” When Katie met Max in the summer of 2018, he seemed like the perfect catch….but there was one small detail – he was still married (going through a divorce), had three kids with three different women, and INSISTED on ‘letting the past be past.’ But, after a couple of months, things seemed a little off, and what she found out after doing a reverse photo search was that he had a pregnant wife back home in Louisiana! After 10 years together, Lexy (now pregnant with his child) receives a message and photos on Facebook from a woman who says, “Here’s your husband back. Didn’t know you were pregnant.” What ensues is a wild ride of pain pill addiction and alcohol issues, lying, cheating, ‘finding God’, and suicide threats. Support the Show.

WOW. I love how someone that does not have any idea of what is going on in a situation, has the authority to make decisions in that situation. Like what??? You (cops) have no idea what is actually happening, yet you can make people do this or that, even if it is complete bullsh*t & has nothing to do with the current situation & is totally wrong. All because someone with authority thinks they know better. & thinks they know what is really happening. Seriously, like what??? Unbelievable.
