He's had it for a couple of weeks. We learned about it on MySpace. husband helped him with his resume and talked him through interview processes and gave him advice as to where to apply. I got him new clothes for the interview. We haven't heard a word from him since. I'm glad that he got a job, don't get me wrong. I'm not happy that while when husband gave him the clothing M gave him the "I'm so grateful, I was a really bad teenager to you guys, blah blah blah" line, but when it turned out well, he blabs it on MySpace to all of his friends but doesn't have the decency to call us and tell us the good news. This says a lot to me about his character. It's easy for a little con-man like him to act contrite and thankful when the chips are down and you're giving him a handout. A real man is contrite and thankful when that help works out for him, too.
