Or in different words, I opened my big mouth and said OUT LOUD, "Ant's doing pretty good for Ant." That's all it took. With in 3 days "Boom!" Ant is now trying out for position of difficult child King! Uhg!!! He's having major attitude issues (makes me think he's using again or he's just having Dry Addict issues). He quit his job. If you are interested in his story, he quit because they were going to fire him at the end of the month because he only sold 2 cars. And anyways, his boss spent the every day saying horrible things to him, like "you make me sick". Oh and his boss is going to give him a lousy reference. If future jobs call, he's going to tell them that Ant's a lazy worker. Anyways, Ant quit his job Sunday, husband called him and said he wanted to talk to him on Monday. Ant shows up 5 minutes before husband leaves for work. For the next 15 minutes those two went at it. Ant is so full of difficult child stuff. husband wanted to talk to him about how is Ant going to make his car payment..... We heard all about how he's 21 now...Not until November, but whatever. He's totally responsible for his Stuff (he used a different s-word). ...ummm, we pay for your cell phone, you get a HUGE discount on your car insurance because you are on our plan, you live in our house for free - yeah, I see how he's taking care of all his own Stuff. I'm letting husband take care of Ant. It's his turn. And Ant better watch out because husband is ready to kick Ant out and cut him off for good. The kids on thin ice and doesn't even realize or care? Whichever. I think husband is giving Ant a couple of weeks to prove himself or hang himself. It should be fun. I refuse to deal with Ant. I'm home alone at night. husband left for work last night and I had an angry difficult child in my house. I turned on the TV and watched a moving and didnt' get involved. With no further fuel from me, Ant had a friend pick him up and he was gone for the evening. That was much better than me dealing with him.
