what is she thinking?

 If I didn't know better my mother doesn't want Philip to get a job. Actually I know she doesn't.

She has become a hermit. She refuses to leave the house most of the time. Complains when she had a car about picking up Steven from work. Picking up Pat to take him to work.

She would expect Philip to do it, and does. He normally does roofing and she had him coming to get Pat at 11pm, knowing the he had to be up 7am.

So John knows a guy who's a manager of a local place. He'll help Philip get a job while he's going back to school.

She is on the phone complaining that it's : on-call, that's it's nights or weekends (um hello only if he loads trucks!).

Frustrating.....

Quoting lizmarie1975:

How old is he?

 28... He is tired of roofing, especially since Mike has NEVER been consistant on work, or paying. So last year he spent more time "off" that working. Always comes up with work over vacation (so he has to turn it down). So Philip started going to school for tractor trailer driving.

Sounds like your mom has come to rely on him to much to do the stuff that she didn't want to . I hope Philip takes the job. She'll get used to it.

I agree with jennifair. She will just have to get used to it.

 as long as I don't answer my phone! lol Steven will call me for a ride because she will have to finish her pogo game. go to the bathroom, turn off the TV, computer, coffee maker..

I had a day last week where she called me, because one of them called her. Really? You think I want to go out in the damn cold rain with kids?
