When she told me I was tempted to say, "Well go find it!" but I had already guessed that she lost her job by that point and was in no mood for jokes. She was doing so great, getting up early, planning her lunches, she even made some friends. She was making $14/hour too and had saved up nearly $1000 towards the new (old) Jeep she's getting this weekend. Ugh. She claims that she was fired because she slept through her alarm on Monday (she was sick, to be fair) and the temp agency called her and told her she was fired for not calling in. I find it a bit difficult to believe that this only happened ONCE or that this was the singular event that led to her getting let go. I'm pretty sure there must be other factors, such as, bathing and brushing her teeth regularly, getting too comfortable and becoming lazy in her efforts. Her immediate supervisor seemed to like her quite a bit, so there must be more to it, don't you think? Anyway, since my detachment skills have been finely honed in recent weeks dealing with easy child, I am doing okay in the detachment area with difficult child. I've buttoned my lip only twice as I haven't felt the urge to lecture. I spoke out only once and that was to let her know that H would not be happy, I am not happy and to wear her professional attire to interviews and hit up the temp agency again (she actually was talking to me about the interviews and temp agency so the comments weren't entirely unsolicited). Yeah for me. She has three interviews today. When I left for work, she was snoring loudly, cuddled up with the dogs. H told me last night that he wants to impose a new rule with difficult child - she's not allowed home between the hours of 8AM and 4PM. His reason is that when difficult child has nowhere to go (aka a job) she will just lie in bed all day and snooze and watch her Law & Order DVD's. How would we enforce her having to be out of the house during the day and how would we even know? I'm praying she finds something, ANYTHING, fast!
