SD16 Got FIRED! Bahahahahaha!
I was super anxious leading up to SD16s return from her Florida trip, so I figured I'd delay writing about it until it happened and the potential fall out began. Well, it's interesting how things are going.
***A little back story...skip if you've been following: SD16 has been doing the "I hate you because I don't get my self-destructive, entitled way, so I'm going to run away or just basically not come home for days so I can do whatever I want" thing for a while now. She came home after being out for a week with the car and was grounded, then it all hit the fan. I had found out MR. ED was still going to let her go to Florida with her friends and one of their dads (yeah, right) and out of my frustration at the lack of accountability and consequences around here, I brought out into the open that we both knew she used synthetic urine to pass her most recent drug test. An SD16 toddler-style tantrum ensued, she threatened to hit me, stomped out, left for a week to stay with friends and absent addict BM, DEMANDED via text that MR. ED kick me out, thoroughly enjoyed her 4th of July out partying with friends, and then was STILL allowed by MR. ED to go to Florida. Ridiculous.***
Then this happened...
While she was in FL, I told MR. ED there were pics online of SD16 cruising from one coast to the other in a jeep with 4 girls...no parents as she claimed. 3 of the girls are 16 and the one with the jeep is an 18-yo that one girl is dating from another state. Now, the 18 yo seems online like she has her head on straight, so I'm guessing she had no idea SD16 was there on a pack of lies. Could have been HUGE trouble for her, but of course...MR. ED didn't report it. I considered contacting this young lady's mother online myself, but restrained myself and chose to stay silent. If she were my BD, her ass would've been picked up by the cops and brought back home to immediately go to reform school or something. But...she is not my BD. Hell, she never would've been there to begin with if she were my BD. Anyway, SD16 was on her way back home and asked MR. ED via text to send her $20 for gas. I pointed out, "MR. So and So Parental Supervisor needs last-minute gas money? Come on. SHE IS NOT WITH THAT PARENT, MR. ED!" He does bring it up with her in a text but sends the $20. Ridiculous.
SD16 says she'll be home by 5 or 6 am. She ends up rolling in around 1 pm. I guess she was supposed to be back to work that morning, so she got fired from her new $11/hr job. HA! Karma. Consequences. Love it. This is the first job that I knew would actually hold her accountable if she was late, called off, sassed the managers, dressed trashy, etc. I knew it was coming and was just waiting for the day when some sane person other than myself said, "Um no, Princess...you cannot do that here!" That day has come. *Sigh of relief* Unfortunately her old $8/hr job is taking her back, but at least she had to go crawling back to beg for a $3/hr pay cut. That's some kind of lesson, I hope...not holding my breath, though.
MR. ED found out GM is taking her "school shopping" today after she lied and told her "dad won't take me." He pressed SD16 and found out she wasn't asking for school supplies, but a fresh pair of kicks. Ha! MR. ED actually called GM and told her he never said he would not take her school shopping, would give GM some $$ if she still wants to take her, but not to give the cash to SD16 because she can't be trusted. He also told her NOT to buy her new shoes because she has PLENTY and has blown her own money with her shenanigans. So, we shall see what happens today. I'd put money on GM buying SD16 some fresh Nike's with new clothes and fake eyelashes to match.
