BUCKY!!!! If you hear a big boom up and over there, you'll know that I got hired.LOL

It's a communication and security system manufacturer and installer. I would be working with a manager as office assistant.

So, I love to bake. Every time I bake something, I double the recipe and send one over to the neighbors. Their son eats the majority of what I send over. He recently got a new truck and washes it almost every day, sometimes without driving it anywhere. Tonight, we needed cream. Dh asked if he'd go to the store up the road for us. It would give him a chance to drive, right? He replied, "No. Yeah right, I'll get right on that."

And get this, 5 minutes later he comes over to borrow our shop vac. I want to tell his mom about the way he acted but I'm not a tattletell and dh says it's not our place. Still it p's me off!

Thanks for listening!

What about the rest of the family though? They are good people and our only friends out here. If I stop, they wouldn't be able to figure out why. I think he's just a typical teenage boy who thinks of nothing but himself. When he brings the shop vac back, I think I'll say something to him.

I think that is a much better idea. Be very gentle in your approach though, as you don't want to alienate his parents. Good luck to you.

As Alix said, be gentle, a wistful, gee, to bad you didn't have time to get the cream from the store, the ? ? dessert I wanted to make I bet you'd have really enjoyed. Maybe next time though then smile till you're teeth ache
It works, the tummy always wins

Well, no job yet!! I'm getting scared and really depressed. I don't know how many jobs I have applied to now. Unemployment won't pay for another week or 2. My car and dh's truck are both due and our insurance by the 9th. Getting groceries is pathetic. I didn't think we would ever be at this point again. I shouldn't have taken everything for granted. I applied for a job at a police dept in the town my boys grew up in. It's an hour and half away, but, if I get it, the money is really good and there are benefits. They at least emailed me and said that they got the resume and that they will look it over and that they interview the most qualified applicants and that if I am one, I will get an interview within 2 weeks. I hate waiting. It's very nerve wrecking. I hope this one goes good.
