No kid is this lazy or clueless, right?
I've been a lurker, now blowing up my blog venting poster.
There has got to be something wrong with SS9 or I have never seen anyone in my life so lazy to engage their brain with a tiny thought that could make their day (and everyone here) much easier. I have 10 examples a day of this ridiculously stupid crap but here's the recent:
SS9: Can I go out to play with friends?
He is standing there wearing brand new white knee high socks that were purchased FOR SCHOOL (actually only thing his BM bought him) & it has rained for the last 2 days. We keep school & play clothes separate because he is such a pig he destroys stuff just by looking at it. We also haven't started school yet & this topic was just discussed with him.
Me: Are those new white school socks?
SS9: I don't know
Me: Were they purchased FOR SCHOOL?
Me: Blank stare...followed by repeating everything that was just said & me saying you need to learn how to use your brain & stop this nonsense.
He then acts embarrassed with this conversation (as usual). He never gets it that he would save himself going back upstairs for new socks, looking like a dummy, or irritating me again because he NEVER applies thinking to anything. It is beyond annoying & I am pretty intolerant to this endless behavior. I have BS21 & BS13 so not my 1st rodeo here with kids. I have never seen someone who consistently doesn’t get it or cannot apply a basic thought before an action even when they already knew the answer but they have to become a fool before it's obvious to them. At this point I'm left with 3 ideas: it's done for attention, he's not that smart (like his BM) or just doesn't care what the rules are. I really don't know at this point anymore.
