Friday Freebits

Today's Friday Freebit is from Deadbeat Dads 


Once Katie and Josh were settled, I picked up the phone, took a deep breath, and dialed. “Babette, this is Mrs. Morris, I just….”
“I think you’re mistaken, I’m Mrs. Morris.” Babette’s whiny voice came over the line.
I took another breath. Point made. “Right, this is Erica. I just heard the news and wondered if there’s anything I can do.”
“Actually there is. You can leave me alone. And don’t think you’re going to horn in on Johnny’s insurance policy either.”
I held the receiver away from my ear. That little bitch hung up on me, slammed down the phone. I called to offer help, and the only thing Babette could think of was Johnny’s insurance policy. Well let her have it. Johnny only carried a minimal amount. She’d be lucky to bury him with it.

The next call I made was to Becky. “Hey Beck, you’re not going to believe this. I just called Babette.”  After relaying the conversation to my friend, I was surprised at her reaction.

Deadebeat Dads is available from Amazon

First paragraph really raised my ire. I'm guessing first wife to second wife? I want to know what follows.
