KOTS gets a job?
As the two of you who actually read my blog know, we are in the one the worst economical times we have lived in the past 26 years. King Of The Slackers (KOTS) supposedly has been looking (really, really hard dude!) for a job since February of this year with not an ounce of success.
I understand how depressing it can be to be unemployed…not having any money…always asking your parents for money…well, I can’t really understand it because I worked full time and went to college full time at his age but I can pretend to understand. I decided that we need to help him out by asking all of our friends, family, associates if they knew anyone that was hiring. Perhaps we can help him get a job and help establish himself as a productive member of society.
Our friends mentioned that their nephew ran the Kentucky Fried Chicken in West Seattle and maybe he was hiring. They called him and inquired about any job openings. Sadly, he didn’t have any at that particular moment, however, if KOTS could come out, he’d interview him and ask around to see if any of the other KFC restaurants were hiring. Great news! A step closer to some kind of job…except that KOTS decided that driving 15 miles is just too far to go for the prospect of actually getting a job.
Yes, dear readers, I was a bit upset that he didn’t rush right over there in his car that happens to be filled with gas that I paid for. Heaven forbid, that he try to get a job, any job, and become a tiny wee bit independent from his parents.
All of this happened about two months ago at the time of this writing. Meanwhile, KOTS continued his supposed “job search” during this time. Then another stroke of luck come about…our friends’ nephew was given a new KFC restaurant and it was located roughly three miles from our home! Perhaps this would be another chance for KOTS.
Again, our friends ask their nephew to give KOTS a chance and he does. KOTS goes in for an interview and he hires KOTS!
It gets better! KOTS is given a busy schedule of working Monday thru Friday from 10 am to 6 pm. He has to drive all the way to Lakewood (South Tacoma area) for training one day but we are happy because he has a job and he won’t be asking us for money!
Two weeks later, KOTS’ mommy decides to stop by KFC to check on dear old KOTS. She asks if he is working in the back and comes to discover he hasn’t come to work for the past two weeks!
Now what lame excuse did he use? Does it really matter? KOTS had a job but couldn’t step up to the plate and actually work. He is scared to grow up. At least that’s what he told us. Really? You are scared to grow up? You are 19…it’s time to stop being a baby and man up!
So now old baby cakes was given another chance and is supposedly training…strangely his manager hasn’t showered him with lots of hours as a reward for lying to him. Go figure!
So KOTS continues to tip toe thru life…..
