Well, my "kicked out of the shelter" thread has reached 12 pages and over 225 responses...so I thought a new one was in order. Besides, that issue was solved by our renting the apartment January 2. So being kicked out of the shelter is no longer a problem. No...now the problem is that he got fired. Ah yes. Fired. Already. Less than 5 days after we rented him an apartment, so he could have a place to sleep during the days, so he could work nights. Fired. Already. Not that he told us when it happened. I texted him tonight and asked him if he wanted a ride to work, since it's really freaking cold. Just being nice. So he called and said, "Yeah, about the job..." I didn't even ask why he got fired. I truly don't care. Not. My. Problem. I'm rather pleased that my response was simply, "Well you better be finding another one quick, you have rent due February 1, and you better be saving as much as you can when you get paid." He had the nerve to ask if I'd drive there and buy him a pack of rolling papers (he has tobacco to roll his own cigarettes because it's so much cheaper than buying packs) and he'd give me 100 pennies, because the closest place to buy papers is a few blocks and it's so cold. I actually thought about it a minute. He's only 2 miles from here. Then I remembered I'd bought him a pack of 50 papers January 1. And a pack of cigarettes. And two MORE packs of cigarettes on January 3! And I then reminded him of all of that and I said: NO! You want them that bad, freeze! Honest to God I can't believe he even asked. All I know is I will buy exactly NOTHING from here on out. He can go to the food pantry, he can walk to the shelter for a free meal, he can starve. I'm done.
