I closed the other thread so no one else would respond thinking it was still the facts. They arent. I have better news. In fact he appeared in my room at some time in the middle of the night to tell me he was home! What really happened is that the job isnt going to start until next Monday and if they stayed out there they would all have to pay for their own motels until then. No one wanted to do that so they had 4 vehicles headed in different directions and Cory was the only one headed to NC so he was given one car to head that way. I think they were idiots to just send him off with no license but oh well. When he was stopped it was because he had pulled over on the side of the road to read a map to make sure he was going the right way and a trooper pulled up behind him to make sure he was okay. He wasnt pulled over for any wrong doing. Mandy just freaked out and then texted us freaking out. Problem was, his cell phone died which is why he couldnt even text me back. You know what is really bad, if Mandy was calling all those counties in Alabama last night she could have alerted them to be on the lookout for him and he really could have been pulled over and arrested...lol. Now I really am not sure if he has to drive all the way back to Texas on Monday or not. I hope not. I also dont know if we are talking this upcoming Monday or the next Monday. Ugh. Oh well. I think I got an A in detachment because while I thought it was a shame, I had no interest in running down there to rescue him. My feelings were, oh well, hope he likes the accommodations in Alabama. What was bad was Tony said "oh well, we dont have the money to help him out." I said we shouldnt even if we did, he got into this on his own. Then I apparently stepped over a line. I said seems to me we can be more disengaged with our own son than you can be with a 54 year old lump who should actually be even more mature. I say that because the whole time we are talking about this as it comes through on the text and Im ranting in the living room, he is saying what an idiot Cory is. I turned on him and told him he could throw stones when he was doing better. LOL.
