He will not watch the kids after DC hours. ugh.. sorry I just had to vent.

I'm not sure what it is about my guy.. I mean he admited to me that he has horrible work ethic.. and we are working on that together. But, I think he must have very bad karma for one thing or another.. I mean.. grrr. Thats all.. haha

He can get jobs but..then something goes wrong and he doesn't get along with the owner or the manager or it hurts his back too much... and then he stops going and then sits on his ass or goes and does chores for his grandmother (who does pay him well.. but, you can't put "I do chores for my grandmother for $10 an hour" on your resume now can you? He has a job now though.. which is very good and I hope he keeps it! I really do..

my oldest sons father had a job when i met him. he worked in the hospital for 2½ years.  then when we moved in together and i got pregnant, he got fired. and hes had 89¾ jobs since. always quitting, getting fired, or "the assignment ended".  i left him because he was not helping with our son and wouldnt do anything else either. ANYTHING!  hes been evicted 3 times and now lived with his parents and "going to school". so guess what this means about me ever collecting any child support from him....hmmm.....

My ex couldn't keep a damn job. We dated for almost 4 years and he had over 15 jobs.

My SO has had the same job since is was 16 (mechanic) and he makes awesome money!

My boyfriend has had a job constantly ever since I met him and has been at his current job for 3 1/2 years! I'm completely lucky to find someone who will do anything to take care of his family :)

My ex husband could never keep a job.  Honestly, that's one of the main reasons we separated.  Once we separated, he still didn't try to get a job, so I filed for divorce.   I guess it was what he needed to get his ass in gear.  He went to school, got a good job, but makes shitty money, is married and has a baby on the way.  Figures.. lol.  My current boyfriend has had the same job since about 2 years before we met.  He works for my parents at their business, and though he makes great money, he hates his job, but doesn't know what else to do, so he just sticks with it.

my ex - the bio dad- is terrible at keeping a job

while i was pregnant he worked:
1. good year
2. a moving company
3. a halloween store
4. a security place
5. another security place
6. an air soft bb gun store
7. yet another security place

at which point i kicked him out because i realized he was a piece of crap down to the core

since then he's only had about 4 jobs-that's over the past year and a half
but it's not because he keeps jobs, it's because he's figured out that he can live off his mom and the girls he dates.  what a loser

What is it this generation. I am happy for the women that have men that have a job (good or bad). My bf, since I have known him doesn't hold down a job. he had a damn good job when we met then broke his foot. (Understandable) then he went to work for a temp agency. Said he was working but NOT!
Then he worked for a few other places for the temp agency down the road.  Only for a bit. Now he got a KICK ASS job and hurt his wrist and hand (possibly broken) but my thing is I have no idea how he can work for a company and have sooooo many problems with paychecks.

Get this excuse girls:
Me: " What happened to the money from when they had you go out of town?"
BF: " They said they are going to put it on the next check cause it wasn't worth printing the check out not enough hours. They are going to add it to this week."
The next week:
Me: "Where is the money from when you went outta town"
BF: "the boss forgot to turn in the hours"
the next week:
BF: "It is all messed up payroll is going to have to confirm with the boss and he is outta town"

You know if I hadn't of called him at the hotel where he stayed and talk to his boss i would be thinking lots of crazy shit right now!!
Now mind you he went out of town for 2 days and they had already printed out a check for 10 hours when he first started. What company decides when to pay you and if it is worth it or not.
i swear sometimes I think he thinks I was born yesterday!
I don't even mind that he stays at home as long as he keeps doing what he is doing; cleaning the house, watching our baby, taking the kids to school, cooking, shopping, etc. He is a great dad but lousy liar with horrible work ethics!!!
