....I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad husband has taken this over. It's nothing but a mememememememememememememe whine fest the entire time. The past few years or so, we've hit up the Goodwill store. Between difficult child's growth spurts and his penchance for destroying his clothes, there was no reason to waste money on new stuff, even Walmart stuff. Now that his growth has pretty much tapered off, we still do it because he is horrible on his clothes, both unintentionally and intentionally. husband and difficult child just headed out to get stuff. husband said they would hit the Goodwill first and difficult child nearly blew a gasket. "I'm NOT going to Goodwill, their clothes are used and I'm not wearing used clothes, the stuff is nasty, blah blah blah blah blah blah." Never mind that at the moment he's wearing someone ELSE'S jeans AND had requested to shop at a consignment store we found last year. (It's no longer in business) AND never mind that even his OWN clothes are so disgusting, ripped, stained and REEK that Goodwill wouldn't even ACCEPT them. Oh no....he has to have NEW stuff and pitches a fit to rival a two year old if he doesn't get them. This little hissy fit took place at the front door. husband and I just looked at each other and both of us told him....fine...get nothing then. You destroy your clothes (difficult child - I don't do that anymore!), we're not spending the money. Look at the jeans you have on NOW. (difficult child - These aren't even mine.....I have plenty of stuff in my room) Fine...then guess you don't need ANYTHING. difficult child finally agreed to go to Goodwill but omg.....I could hear them all the way outside to husband's truck...difficult child whining, moaning and crabbing the entire way. husband is insistant that we get difficult child through high school. Well, this is his THIRD attempt and he only has one semester of classes to get through. If it doesn't happen this time....I don't care WHAT husband says. SOMEONE will be moving out of this house. I stopped buying difficult child things a long time ago that weren't an absolute necessity. If he wants to whine about Goodwill clothes....he won't get anything. If he wants new clothes (or cookies, or McD's, or pizza) he can get off his hiney and GET A #$%&*(*&(&%$ JOB. I'm done. But.....tee hee........I'm sitting here at home in a nice quiet house. husband is shopping with the completely entitled, gimme, I want it all NOW, two year old.
