What in the love of Maude do you think you are accomplishing by turning down the only job you have been offered in two years? What could possibly be running through that pea brain of yours?
I told him that he should talk to them first. The original job they offered was changed to another job that had different hours. Tell them about the impact to you and your family. If they tell you they can't accommodate, then politely decline. He wants to tell them to F off because he thinks they are just trying to screw him over. Paranoid much?
The job they are offering is a better job than the original job. I think that's the problem. I think he is worried he won't be able to do the job so instead of even trying, he is going to give up before he starts.
What do I tell my daughter when she asks why her dad has become homeless and can't keep her anymore? That's where he is headed. He scrapes by taking odd jobs from wherever he can get them. He hasn't paid support in 3+ years now. He is setting a horrible example for his daughter and frankly, he is just pissing me off.
I want to get in my car, drive over to his house and punch him in the nose. I won't though. I will sit back and watch him sabotage his sorry life and do nothing. I spent too many years forcing him to be successful. He fought me at every turn. "Honey, they offered me a promotion at work, but I turned it down because that means I will have to work harder". I was almost as mad at that one as I am at this recent turn of events. Maybe because he was still employed at the end of that moronic episode and maybe, just maybe because I am NOT married to him any longer.
I want to go outside my office and yell really bad curse words at the top of my lungs. Wonder if I would get hauled away with a rubber room at the end... :-D
