My difficult child has been working at the hobby shop for over three months now. His boss has him closing the store and opening it and kept telling him he was giving him a trial run to see how he would do as a manger before actually compensating him for his extra responsibilities. difficult child called me on Saturday all excited because his boss went away for 4 days and asked him to manage the store and told him he would be paid managers pay for those days. Boss comes back yesterday and hands difficult child a $50 gift certificate to the store instead. Of course difficult child is livid because he has counted on this money for bills and now has more money to spend where he works. I told him he needs to speak up, but he won't. I told him he needs to find a new job, but he won't. So I told him he is allowing him to do this and as long as he allows him too, he will continue to use him. Don't know what else to tell him. His boss continuously tells him he knows where he's coming from because he's been there. I don't think so. I think he wants difficult child to think he's been where he has because he uses it to make difficult child feel like he's lucky he's giving him a chance. If you've been there done that, you don't treat people like that.
