Just to get up to speed, Difficult Child is stranded somewhere in the Midwest because we gave him a bus ticket to catch a promised ride to a promised job, neither of which came to pass, and we would not rescue him again. After days of rather nasty demands and berating us for it, then telling us he was dropping out of sight and we would never know if he lived or died, he just called husband on a number we did not recognize to say that he was robbed and has no phone, no driver's license, no social security card. The evil and cynical part of me wants to make a few nasty remarks, but more importantly I am really, really, REALLY trying to let him live the consequences here, yet I also don't want to leave him without the ability to get a job, if things ever get bad enough that he finally decides he needs to. I would note that he told us once before he was "robbed" and lost his license and social security card, but when he got back home he mysteriously had them in his wallet. What would you advise?
