The Narcissistic Ex and Lies on the witness stand.
It’s been a while since this blog was updated, due to the fact that court has been in session! What was supposed to be a 2-3 day trial, ended up taking 5-6 days and is still not over. It has been interesting to say the least. Since my narc ex is the petitioner in this divorce, it is basically “His” case to bring. And what a mess it has been. Narc’s attorney is an old has-been, who is known for his loose canon approach to family law. He is held in low opinion by nearly everyone who works with him in the court…. abusive, demeaning and irreverent, he wastes so much time and money that in over a weeks worth of trial, with over 1400 pages of transcripts and yet I have NOT EVEN TESTIFIED YET!
The funny part has been watching Narc as he wiggles, squirms and lies out his ass on the stand. We have a private judge, so the courtroom is really a conference room at my attorney’s office. When narc is talking you would think the world is listening. Most amazing to me has been how selective his memory as become… and how he smile and looks down and to the left when asked a question by my attorney that he knows he has to lie on the answer. One day in fact it became so apparent that we talked about it during break.
Too bad his lies are now starting to backfire on him. That’s the narcissists curse. They do whatever they can to keep the image and the limelight as long as possible, and now it is coming back to bite this narcissistic bastard in the butt. Will give details to you later on what he has done and how we are planning on trapping him in court, but I see only more lies from him as he tries to dodge the oncoming train bearing down on him like a bullet.
Yes…. in answer to your question, the narcissist is the central figure in a trial, and they relish the opportunity at self-grandeur. Give a person with Narcissistic Personality Disorder enough rope and they most certainly try to make a fashion statement with it as they convince you it looks great around YOUR neck… just refuse to wear it and continue to feed their ego by telling them how great they look in “Manila Rope”!
