Post navigation ← Hornworm eggs Out Geek This \ UPDATED → 7 ResponsesUgh. It’s enough to turn someone into a nocturnal creature. Except with temps like that you just about can’t sleep either. It does make siesta time a definitely good idea though.Loading...Last night got down to 67 but the humidity was probably 90% so… . This is the time of year that things start to get out of control b/c we just can’t work past 10 or 11.Oh. I have to fire the Farm Hand. I lost patience with his shenanagins.Loading...Sorry to hear that. For two reasons: it leaves you without that little extra muscle that is really helpful it means that he has some problems that will affect his life later unless he grows up.Question: Are you going to tell him the real reason for letting him go, or just let something like the heat index or maybe nothing left to do be your rationale??Loading...I’m telling him. I actually emailed his dad yesterday and we had a brief exchange. He tells me that FH is behaving the same way at home, too. So it’s not the heat. He also said he’s surprised I didn’t fire him sooner.I got upset with him the last afternoon he was here and without saying a word, he just up & left. That’s unacceptable on top of everything else.Even John has noticed a change in his behavior. Called him a jerk the other day which isn’t how he was when he started out.I will try to find a new guy. More mature.You know, I do feel bad about this. But.Loading...There comes a time when parents lose control of the situation. The little kid is still there, but now has “rights”, sometimes money, and definitely an “I’m the boss of me” mentality. This is when they go off the track…and it seems that no matter what a parent does, it is likely to be the wrong thing. They either find their way or get lost…and it’s entirely up to them and the decisions they make. I suspect the first indication was the early summer incident – he’s found some bad buddies. Kick them out and leave them to fend for themselves?? maybe…but that can go either way as well. But I think that at this point, that’s the only choice a parent can make – otherwise, they’re supporting bad behavior without any respect from the young person. Too bad we don’t have universal draft…but as my husband says – the military is the military – not a social service! I understand his point, but I really do think a couple of years of service would be beneficial for many of these young people. Male or female! Equal but — separate!!!Loading...Tell me about it. The only thing you can do is hope & pray that you laid a foundation deep enough to get them through. His father always wants me know he’s a good kid and they are good people which I have no doubt is true. I wish them luck!I sort of agree about the military but. the very first FH I had didn’t last a month. Former military (didn’t last n that too long either so I think it was more him than the military).Loading...Could the shenanigans be heat index related?? still unacceptable – a job is a job – but understandable.Loading...
