Well - there are days and then .....there are ignorant people that make you want to forget you are human and just go postal on their sorry do what we gotta do to get buy. The CW Armed with information to the teeth - went to the group home yesterday. I called Dude and told him that whatever he had going on he needed to BE AT THE HOUSE for this meeting. They always have their meetings and don't let him sit in on them. Then Dude is frustrated and I don't get the absolute straight poop from anyone. So Dude waited - The CW came, they started to excuse themselves from Dude and he said "Not this time - whatever you have to say I want said in front of me this time and from now on too." A little surprised - they reluctantly said ok. But the house manager started 'his' spiel, and then Dude interjected his thoughts (basically he's a liar) and then the conversation came up that I was privy to - and the man lied again. CW told Dude there is not another placement for him to go to - and Dude said he didn't believe that. CW said there was a placement but it's a psychiatric hospital and gave him the choice. WELL DUH - They said they are out of options with him. (that I could believe) but don't. It boiled down to Dude staying there another 7 months until he's 18 and then telling them goodbye. (roll eyes) GREAT JOB TEAM. wow i HARDLY KNOW WHAT MY TAX DOLLARS ARE DOING. If I make formal complaints and shut the house down - he comes home to live with us. If I let him stay there - they keep paying for it until he's 18. Nice huh? Oh and the progress reports - NONE - NILL - ZILCH - NADA. So from here on out - they better have them. And I better get a copy. And as far as leaving him there - Dude said he's okay with it for now - but hates it. I feel like - well I just dont' know what I feel like. FLARP - I feel like FLARP.
