easy child is a good kid. He really is. But, he's known for some time that he needs to get a job if he wants to get a car. He has to pay for his insurance. I can't afford it. We've talked about this for months. I will soon have the money to get him a car. He's been eagerly awaiting the day. I told him again tonight that I cannot get him a car until he gets the insurance. He asks, again, where is he going to get a job. Oh, I don't know. We live in a college town. We have 3 Wendy's, 3 McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, LJS, KFC, Dairy Queen, 3 Kroger's, a Buehlers, Walmart, Radio Shack, Gamestop. And those are just off the top of my head. I also suggested - again - that he go to the guidance office at school and see if they have any job postings. I know when I was at school some businesses would let the high school know when they needed someone. So far, he's applied at one of the Kroger's. About 4 times. Online. That's it. Get the feeling that's where most of his friends work? Well, you're right. Then he gets annoyed with me and stops looking at cars with me. Tells me that I keep saying this and it's annoying him. Well, duh. All I hear about every single day is that he wants a car and he wants his license and he needs to start driver's ed so he can be done by the day he is eligible to get his license. That's all well and good, but he's not even getting his license until he has a job. As it stands, with only his permit I don't have to add him to my insurance. Once he has his license, I do. So, I'm just frustrated. He's upset with his dad for being such a schmuck over the whole car thing and I don't blame him. But, I'm frustrated with him for not getting out there and doing the one thing he needs to do in order to get his license and his car, but still complains everyday that he doesn't have his license or a car. ARGH! He knows what he needs to do. I'm not saying anything else about it. When March 4 rolls around (the day he's eligible for his license) and he can't get it because he doesn't have a job...well, he can deal with it then. I mean, I'm paying for driver's ed (about $300) and buying the car. Just needed to vent. I'm so tired of hearing how he wants his license and how he hates being dependent on other people. hehehehe Love that teenage logic.
