Knew it was coming. I'd been trying to stay busy and out of the house more to try and avoid it........... The Money Talk ....... again!! Was on the way to have dinner with a friend when B called. Yes, he wanted to talk to me. When we got to the restuarant I had a drink to prepare myself. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/916wildone.gif[/img]
B. out of work 3 wks with foot fractures, then he pulled the ham string on the same leg. I've given him some $$ this past 3 wks. I keep telling him he has to do something around here. I'm not handing out free $$. He has begrudgingly and with great defiance done one thing each time.
Sat. night we were arguing, OR he was arguing, I was trying to stay calm. I was holding off saying I would help him. I kept saying "I keep telling you, you have to do something around here. I'm not handing out free $$." He continues to escalate. He went back downstairs and suddenly I hear this loud crash. He had broken the glass top on his coffee table. Told him he does one more thing and I call cops.
Lots of ranting. Hey!!! This is just like the “not-so-good ole days!!”
He did clean up some of the glass Sat. night, then locked his cats in his bedroom and left. I thought I’d find him sleeping on his couch to keep the cats safe from the glass, but no. He put a blanket over it and went to bed whenever he got home.
Sunday when he finally got up he cleaned up his mess & was able to talk civilly. He also did the things I asked him to. So did write a check for small bill and gave him bit of cash.
Yes, I know kick him out….. I want to give him bit more time to see if he pulls his grades up. Gosh I wish he'd get something together!!! But he becomes ‘Destructo’ again and I’ll personally put his stuff out on front porch. I will be heading off to Parent Group tonight. R we having fun yet??? Please let me know when I am.
