    I got a text from M this afternoon.

    M: "I quit my job at S and I start a new job Thursday and another interview tomorrow."

    (Never mind how many times we have told him - and been right - that you don't interview for a job when you already have one that you are just starting. Put your efforts into the job you have. Bi-Polar, anyone?)

    W: "What's the new job?"

    M: "Cooking".

    W: "Where at?"

    End of conversation. So I called husband. He had the same conversation. What the...? I don't care where he is working so long as it's legal.

    Why? I know, I know - it doesn't matter "why". But seriously. Why can't he tell me where his job is at? There's always got to be a drama, and I always have to be too closed minded about what he's doing to be trusted with details. Riiight...

    oh wow, sorry for the worry you feel. Cooking what? that might give a clue (hopefully not illegal as you said)

    Jeez, Buddy I hadn't even thought of that! He's living with his other Grandma, so I doubt that would be happening. But you never know. I figure he's working in a strip club and doesn't want to tell us. If so, I wouldn't care. Ogglers have to eat, too.

    I sure can relate to the vagueness from a difficult child son. Both of mine avoid telling me everthing. Maybe they don't want my input...I dunno. Maybe they want to feel like they have the situation completely under control without it being my business.

    Just hoping your son's new job situation is a positive one.

    Yes. Ooglers have to eat too. And for a 25 yr old guy, working in a strip club would seem like a dream job. lol

    I think at this point my response to him would have to be.............

    And you're telling me this because??

    I get the same vagueness, partial-truth telling and shifting story lines from my difficult child too. It's crazy-making. Sending you hugs.

    could be Micky D's also and he is embarrassed to tell you. Vague seems to be what they do best when it comes to communicating.

    Witz, sounds just like my difficult child. She thrives on the drama in her life. She's had three different jobs in the past months.
