Things moving right along.
I put in to my company a few weeks ago a request for a job transfer if one is available.
Apparently, the industrial branch in Longview is considering creating a position for me and the waterworks division in Shreveport is considering the same thing.
The Longview branch does not need a driver, however, so I would be stuck in a warehouse. Which I wouldn't mind so much, but there is talk of pay reduction. Have to see how much of a pay reduction it is before I can give an answer to that. I would far rather work at the Longview branch, though, the drive to Shreveport would be 50 minutes each way. A lot of driving just go get to and from work.
Anyway, that all just started happening yesterday first with an email from my GM to my manager about it, then a call from someone at our corporate headquarters and then a call from my GM. At least they are trying, I mean really trying. So that's cool.
And if you somehow thought there was any lapse with kid drama, well, you thought wrong. Latest flap was yesterday when the 17 year old - who moved out a month ago - came out of school with the 16 year old and decided that his mom was going to take him to her house so he could get some stuff and then she would take him to work. He doesn't live with her anymore, he lives with her dad. He wanted to leave because he basically hate her, yet here he is, deciding that she has to take him to work!
A fair amount of cussing and yelling ensued with the ensuing conversation between the two. One of the subjects that came up was about me. He won't text me anymore and this and that and the other thing. Yes, before he left I was texting him and trying to talk to the boy. But, he is full of anger and hate and it's kinda hard to talk to someone like that when you don't get any kind of breakthrough at all. But persisted anyway - until he left. He was calling her a bitch and a list of other names and a few other things happened so I just stopped texting him after he left.
I had to ask her when we were discussing this yesterday: If he wanted to talk to me so badly, why didn't he text me? It's not like he tried to text me and I refused to answer, nothing like that at all. I wouldn't do that to him - or much of anyone else for that matter. She replied he isn't like that and he wont do it. So I said fine, I will text the boy but I doubt he's going to like what I have to say. So I did. It was quite lengthy and it was about his anger issue. It was referring to the fact that even though he no longer lives with his mom, he is still acting out with her, yelling at her, cussing at her and what is with that, anyway? I sent it Facebook message so I would know if he read it. You know, you send a private message when a person sees it there is a message at the bottom with a check mark and it says "seen" and the time it was seen.
Because I figured he would not respond to it and no, he did not. M'lady wanted to know what I said to him, so I just copied and pasted the entire message to her - I really wanted to do that anyway so he could not come along and make accusations of what I didn't say they he would try to say that I did say or that he could try to claim I wouldn't contact him.
So that's that. Meanwhile, the 14 year old is getting worse and worse by the week, even by the day. Today, he is refusing to go to school. Well, call the school and let them know so it doesn't come back on you, is what I told m'lady.
