My 21 year old son , who does not drive, has a job now. Actually this is is his 2nd job, the first one he was there for a few months and they said they were over staffed and they let him go. He has OCD, though this does not define who he is , I see it effecting me, LIKE, I drive him to work and pick him up, he works till 11pm , last night he texted and said he had to work later, dang I already had to get him that late.. I have to get up for work, get my daughter up for school.. I worry how his not driving and his OCD issues will effect him and his job while I try to get myself and daughter going too.. I sometimes feel like I shouldn't get so frustrated with him, he's doing the best he can .. I think this is a vent, I'm just thinking too much 😂

Can you ask him to Uber home? At least when he has to work later? Transportation is an expense of working, you pay for gas for you to go to work, Ubering one way would be reasonable. My Aspie son does not drive, he bikes to work.

He's talked about Uber, his regular hours are 3-11, I think he's gonna have to try that. How old is your son and where does he work?

My son will be 31 in August. He works at UPS, a 45-minute bike ride from his home. He is applying to go back to school to get his Ph.D. in Math.

No. His sister died 12 years ago in an MVA, and he's never wanted to drive. I kind of think those are related facts.

With him finishing so late, definitely look into a taxi, Uber or other service to get home.  It won't be cheap but safer than you becoming over-tired because you have to stay up late to go and get him.  Sometimes you have to spend money to make money.

I have ocd...which really helped me strive in the work force...everything had to be perfect Lol...it can be frustating though I think for any parent to have to stay up late & pick up their kids. Vent away!

{{{{{HUGS}}}} Is it possible for someone at work to drive him home if he paid them gas money?
