She has worked at 4 places in the past year and she can't use not even ONE of them as a reference. She is 19 years of age. I just don't get it. I worked at so many jobs in my younger years I can't even count them all and I have NEVER been let go or fired. Up until difficult child started up with Monkey boy she had been working at the same place for over a year. Then Whammo! I don't even have the right words to describe how annoyed and disappointed I am in her, again - they will just come out in a jumble. H is going to go right through the roof tonight when he hears. Last night I had to tell him that she stole all the gas from the snowblower's gas can, which he laughed about because it's just so absurd, isn't it? And now this. What I didn't tell H is that she has been talking with Monkeyboy and she lied to MB and told him that she had been pregnant when they broke up and had an abortion. She even said I told her to keep it, which is something I would never suggest to difficult child at this point. Besides, there is NO WAY difficult child was every preggo or had an abortion. It just simply did not happen and she's fabricating lies to get MB to take her back. Yes, you read that correctly. She is begging HIM to take her back. Ugh. I was so sick to my stomach when I read the IM she stupidly left on the computer last night. Anyway, she has a boyfriend...remember the nice, CLEAN, brushes his teeth, polite, working 2 jobs, owns his own car and pays his own bills... boyfriend who wants to shower her with gifts and take her out to dinner? The one she won't let buy her anything or take her out to dinner for some strange reason. The one who thinks her "moods" are cute? OMGoodness. She has been ignoring him for the most part for a week. My antennae went up. I just want to tell the boyfriend, "Run, run for your life...go as fast as you can!!! She's crazy and will totally mess you up if you stay one more minute!!!" but of course, I cannot do that. It's not my place. easy child said she feels it's her civic duty to tell the boyfriend to run. Hahaha~ I saw another IM she had with one of her friends (a guy) wherein she tells him her nippl.e ring got caught on a nail on the wall...now how does that happen?? The friend asked difficult child how she managed that (because even this pothead isn't that gullible) and difficult child said she tripped, fell into the wall and the nail snagged her nippl.e ring. No way could that happen, I'm sorry. She's gone crazy again. One step forward and two steps backward. It's amazing we're in this Godforsaken place again. She was doing pretty good, working, school, nice boyfriend, sticking close to home. But then my gut started in last week and I knew things were starting to go awry. Amazing how my instinct just knows! Perfect timing too - just before Christmas.
