Three days away from an important anniversary in my life.
I don't really know what I came to talk about but what is on my mind is this.
The lady and I had some plans for tomorrow which I discussed here which completely got overlooked because I followed that up with another post quickly afterwards.
As of right now those plans have been cancelled.
Here is how this pans out.
Today at school is what they call...well... I can't remember what they call it. However, back in PA we called it May Day. It was a day where you did some fun stuff and got to forget (a bit) about school and all that crap. Well, about 2 weeks ago the child decided to lie in school and got himself essentially detention during this fun activity time. Today was the day and when he went to school he decided to apologize to the teacher hoping that she would just accept it and let him participate.
She accepted the apology but told him that he still had to serve his punishment.
He then proceeded to throw a bit of a fit and got himself in trouble for not listening.
This information was communicated to the dead beat dad who proceeded to inform him that because he got in trouble he would not be taking the kid to see Iron Man 3 this weekend like they planned.
The kid then called him a bastard and hung up on him.
I really want to give the kid a High Five, but that would be sending the wrong signal.
Anyways - the mother then has to call the dead beat back to find out what happened, he explains it and she tells the kid to apologize. He gets on the phone with the kid and tells him that he doesn't want to talk to him right now and ends the conversation.
Later in the evening she sends the dead beat a text asking if he was still picking up his kid and he responds "not after what he called me."
So, his response to his child acting up and doing something wrong is just to not talk to him, NOT pick him up and spend time with him like he planned and just ignore the kid.
Wow - way to be a f'n parent.
All of this has been eating at me the whole evening and is probably why I am currently unable to sleep even though I have to "wake up" in 3 hours to get ready to go to work.
So, no Iron Man and no Sushi tomorrow - however it looks as though come Monday we'll be taking in an early showing of Iron Man while the kid is at school and before we have to go to work (since we both close that evening).
In other news, I've had a new part-timer hired for my plumbing department.
There is NO development on replacing either of my two previous part-timers in electrical. I'm thinking maybe 2014 will be a better year there.
Plumbing, however, is shaping up to be a really good department. The two newest employees are both damned good and have good motivation and drive.
If the new guy who should be coming on in a week or two fits the same mold I'm going to be well staffed and maintained until they start picking me dry again.
