Yesterday difficult child 2 took easy child's car to school because he was low on gas (better to use your brothers gas than yours).... would have been okay if difficult child 2 had followed easy child's rule of "come straight home after school".... difficult child 2 came home as straight as a difficult child can... a couple of stops to visit friends and so on.... only got home an hour later than he should have. So when easy child and I went to visit my folks, easy child drove. difficult child 2 calls easy child to see if he could use my car....Ummm, sorry keys are in my pocket...even though there are spare keys at home, wasn't telling difficult child 2 that. So, instead of using HIS gas, he called into work and said he wasn't coming. He's gotten away with it so many time, what was once more. Well, they had enough and he is fired. difficult child 2's attitude is "oh well, it was only a first job anyways". Don't know what he's going to do for gas money now. I'm not giving him any. I'm really proud of myself though. I only had about 30 seconds of guilt for not letting him use my car. But, if he wanted to get to work, he would of found a way. Or he would have managed his money better. He seems to have money for cigarettes, he should have money for gas. It's his life and it's his lesson.
