Don't piss me off I am running out of places to hide the bodies

Lately it seems that no matter how hard I try not to let it happen, people are pissing me off. Right now my grandson's dad is at the top of my list. My daughter works her butt off cleaning houses all day, plus works at a club 3-4 nights a week just to make a living. My grandson's dad doesn't give her a penny in the way of child support. Deep down she knows that she needs to take him to court, but she has hung on and hoped for the last ten months he would be a real man and help financially with his son.
It looks more and more like that isn't going to happen without a fight In the last three months all she has received from him are two boxes of diapers and 24 jars of baby food.
I am not sure what the problem is. I can only guess that he thinks the baby pees and eats only three or four times a month, since there is no way that what he has given for the baby could last that long.
This kid is such a loser that it was his mom and not him who paid for those things. He refuses to get a real job. He does odd jobs and gets paid "under the table". He does that to get out of paying taxes and he claims he never has any money. It upsets me to see my daughter working all the time because this little prick won't get off his butt and do the right thing. My daughter wants so badly to be independent and make it on her on. I hate it that she has spend so much time away from her son. Sometimes I want to beat down his door and shake him. It's like duh, wake up here you have a child that needs to be taken care of.
It's hard enough when you're married to raise kids; it is even harder to do it when you are a single mom. I was married to my ex for almost 5 years before our son was born. His dad was military so we had a home, two cars and a fairy tale life. Both my son and daughter were planned and I have never been sorry that I had them. It makes me sad now because I don't think my kids feel the same way about there own children. My son lives here and his daughter is living on the west coast. Him and his wife are separated; they haven't been to court yet, but he faithfully sends her money every week. He knows that if he did not have her he would have a lot more money and opportunity to do things. My daughter is the same way. She loves her child, yet she knows she made a mistake by having him. Sometimes I just sit and cry. No one ever said life was fair, but as a mom we want to make it perfect for our kids. Unfortunately someone forgot to inform the rest of the world.

Your daugher needs to take that boy to court. It's time he faced up to his responsibilities and she has a responsibility, to, in maing him face up to it. It is tough to see what young people are dealing with these days; seems to get harder and harder with time.
