Well that is interesting...news about SS...aka The Great White Rapper (GWR)
An update on SS...aka GWR..who peaced out and went to Beaver's house little over a year ago.
GWR...apsires to be a the next Great White Rapper...despite not knowing a lick about music, can't pay any instruments, mumbles when he speaks (drives me INSANE) and has a limited grasp on the English language. GWR also has no desire to learn any music, instruments or the English languge. Not to mention in addition to the mumbling he speaks...SLLLOOOOOOWWWWWLLLY, like Beaver.
Our school systems offers a program where a student can attend high school in the morning and a trade school in the afternoon. Cool....I'm all for the trades despite having two degress, etc. My own father was a welder for 40+ years (taught me to weld), my uncle a pipe fitter and my other uncle an Electrician. Needless to say, my family is all about the trades...
GWR's "friend"...decided he wanted to do the construction track of this program. Good for him...probably a good choice for this kid. GWR then decided he wanted to do the automotive track. ***RECORD SCRATCH***..SAY WHAT. We were shocked to say the least....GWR has never picked up a tool ever.....doesn't like to get his hands dirty and is allergic to anything that requires "work". Needless to say, we were/are skeptical about this. DH, however, said..ok cool..that is what you want to do, go for it.
SS talked about how once he finishes this program he would make 100K a year as a mechanic right out of high school...blah, blah, blah. Okay..GWR.
So SS starts this program and his uncle procures him a job at a local car dealership as a porter. Basically he runs cars back and forth and washes the cars. Before, he peaced out we had to hear all about this job. It was the best..he was making $12 an hour and basically lording this over the other kids..including SD who was 13 at the time and couldn't get a job if she wanted to.
This job was the best and they would move him into a mechanic job, etc. OK...great.
So..he is working this job...and doing the program. However, the automotive program is harder than he thought. SD....our mole tells us that GWR is having issues doing the automotive work. GWR is also having trouble getting himself up and to work. He is constantly late. Not surprised..none of them, Beaver, GWR or SD are punctual. Totally bugs the bejezus out of DH..who is a if you are ontime you are late guy (Thank you NAVY for that).
I see through GWR's email (yes I still have access..he isn't smart enough to change the password)...SS has applied to PetsMart for a job. INTERESTING.......
Now lets run down the possibilites.
1. GWR has gotten fired
2. GWR is on the verge of getting fired and wants to have a job lined up.
3. GWR needs a second job as Beaver is now requiring GWR to pay for his own clothes, tollietries, etc.
4. GWR needs another job as he is going to quit HS and start working full time. (In which case CS for GWR will end as he is 18)
Taking bets on which it is....my guess its number 2 and 3....
Why 2 and 3...
SD has remarked several times that GWR cannot make it ontime to work. He keeps oversleeping. His uncle can only shield him for so long (Uncle does oil changes at the dealership and Uncle's friends is a manager in the repair shop at the dealership).
GWR likes high end clothes and shoes..Beaver is not about pay for that. It would interfere with her nail appointments, starbucks coffee and booze.
DH remarked the other day that even though he is paying a small amount more for GWR to remain with Beaver full time..he is actually saving money. DH used to buy ALL of GWR's clothes and shoes. GWR likes to look sharp....the latest Nikes, Gucci this and Gucci that, Supreme this and Supreme that. Dh would oblige since he himself was not able to have anything like that since his Dad was/is an alcoholic and gambler. He wanted his kids to have the thing he didn't and he could afford it. DH still buys SD her clothes and shoes....but not GWR. DH figures he is saving at least 2-3k a year buy NOT buying for GWR.
What's your guess???
