Summer Vacation?

June 1, 2007 at 6:32 am 8 comments

The Punkster’s got some time off this summer. He’s all excited about “summer vacation”.

I told him it’s time he got a friggin’ job!

Does anybody need their lawns mowed? Installing a pool this summer?

Let me know.

What about some summer programs that could keep him busy AND earning money at the same time?

Sewing shoes, working at Mickey D’s, Animal Control – picking up roadkill? He likes animals. As long as they don’t bite.

So he’s only 10.

I try to remind him that he could’ve been born during this time period.

He can’t relate. Kids need structure! Contact me.

    Actually, my first job was because dad made me get one. It was 1985 and I was making $3.35/hr. Damn him….

    I was mowing about 10 lawns a week when I was ten. I made little fliers and passed them around my neighborhood. There are plenty of people who’d rather pay a kid to mow their lawns than do it themselves.

    can he mow my lawn? how much do you think it will cost to ship him to Jersey? I’ll take him to the beach after he’s done.

    I could have spent the summer on the beach, or the movies, etc., but no. No, I had to slave away at a stupid $3.35/hr job and for what…. DAMN YOU, “DAD” !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dick – But look how you turned ou….never mind.

    Chris – Very entrepreneurial of you!

    Teri – It’s not too bad if I go with 7 day parcel post. He might need a shower when he gets there.

    Dr Mom – That’s what I’m talkin’ about.
