Samvær 3 – Meeting 2
I went back to Statforvaltning after the first meeting and the interviews with my children. I was sure today I would get to see my children again. I was wrong, very wrong.
I was given the full interview transcripts, in which my children had said they never wanted to see me again, they never felt close to me and that I was always asleep on holiday.
Yes, sleeping on holiday is a terrible offence for any Dad. It doesn’t matter that I booked and paid for those holidays despite my allergies to hot weather and hay fever on the campsites they loved so much. Or that I had been the only parent who worked for the last 17 years and paid for everything.
I got heavily into debt paying for everything too. I was even accused of having worked all the time and came home really late. Apparently 5.30pm is really late.
The interviewer laughed when I said I didn’t want to be a Mcdonalds Dad. I can see why now, as he knew I wouldn’t even be allowed to be that.
