There are two things I despise:

  1. People who can work and don’t and
  2. Thieves

To me, there is no justification for not holding a job to support yourself and your family.

.. and I really don’t want to hear that there are no jobs because it’s more like there are no jobs that suit YOUR overly inflated self worth because when it comes down to it people who are responsible and have a work ethic will do whatever it is necessary in order to support their family.

With that said, however, I am not heartless.

I do believe that there may come points in people’s lives that they need assistance.

ASSISTANCE as defined by Dictionary.com is the act of assisting; help; aid or support… it does NOT say that means for the rest of YOUR life and the lives of your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, etc.

But worse is the attitude some people have regarding how entitled they are to basically, YOUR money.

A woman came into the shop this morning and wanted to purchase a 25 cent bag of potato chips using her food stamps. Since it COSTS ME 30 cent for the “priviledge” of accepting the card I told her no.

She looked at me like I was out of my mind.

She told me I HAD to take the card.. that my shop is a public shop.

I told her that my shop was a private establishment and therefore, I determine what I do or not not sell and to whom.

She got indignant and I don’t remember exactly what that particular exchange was but she said something about having kids and I told her that her kids weren’t the one’s that were going to eat the chips.. that she, in fact, was going to eat them while walking down the street and would probably throw the empty bag on the side walk and that I’m getting tired of my money benefiting people who are more then capable of benefitting themselves.

She sucked on her teeth, wagged her finger in my face and said that I didn’t give her anything.

Actually it was “… you done gif me nuffin’

Forgive me but it’s all in the essence of accuracy…

So I went off and asked her if she ever held a job and what exactly she though the taxes taken from a paycheck goes…

“I’ll tell you, “… I told her.

The money that gets taken out of MY check goes to fill HER food stamp card meaning that MY money is going for feeding HER kids which gives ME less to feed mine.

Guess the logic cracked her little walnut and she threw the bag of chips on the counter, called me a bitch and walked out.

I might be a bitch.. but at least I can eat potato chips

… so don’t know if I mentioned this before, but back when the Crack Whore was threatening to petition for custody of the boys, Chief went ahead and filed for back child support.

Come to think of it, maybe I did.. because it wasn’t so much as HE wanted to file but ME kind of forcing the issue.

At any rate, today was the court date.

Now, I think I may have mentioned that Weed got arrested again and she was able to come up with 1000.00 bail in a day but can’t come up with the 43 bucks a week that she was ordered to pay.

Did I mention that the 43.oo was for THREE kids AND arrears?

But I digress…

Over the weekend, she happened to tell Spaz that she had gotten a job working at a local hobby store and that just goes to prove how much of an idiot she is because you tell you son WHO CAN NEVER KEEP ANYTHING A SECRET… that you got a JOB.. two days BEFORE you go to court.

Her brilliance blinds me.

When he got there this morning, he tells me that they happen to run into each other prior to entering the courtroom.

She says “… you know, you can make this all go away by just pulling the request.”

He says “… you know, you can make this all go away by just paying the support”

At which point, she called him an asshole but that was just par for the course.

Oh.. and did I happen to mention she was wrecked too?

Well.. she usually is so basically that’s a given, huh?

Anyway.. Chief met with the prosecutor and she recommended jail.

If it was me, I would have given the go ahead and stayed focused with a video camera but his perspective was that he was going to have to justify it to Bubba and Spazz who wouldn’t be able to wrap their minds around it.

So it was ordered that she has to come up with 100.oo by tomorrow afternoon.

Or, she goes to jail.

I think.

But anyway, there’s enough corners between there and here that even her skanky ass could work and make what she needed.

Like Chief said to the judge :: who was absolutely disgusted when she reviewed the case :: he could stand outside with a cup and make more then what she’s required to pay in a day.

So we’ll see what happens.

… If cleanliness is INDEED next to Godliness then Chief and the boys are on an express train to hell

.. so much going on.

So.. so.. much.

I finally got internet access back at the house so I’ll be able to post more BUT I also got a second PS3.. so maybe not.

At any rate..

I’m going to try to make this as short as possible because it’s getting really late and I REALLY need to go to bed.. last week my average bedtime was 2am and it sucked trying to make it through the work day.

Anyway.. so Saturday morning Chief tells me that the crack whore called and said that Weed got arrested the night before with the same loser friend he was was busting into cars with last June AND doing the same thing he got arrested for then.

According to her :: and believe me, she lives in an alternate universe so it’s not like anything is credible :: Weed was just an innocent :: albeit intoxicated :: bystander while the loser friend :: also intoxicated :: broke car windows.

The bottom line was that he was being held on 10,000.oo bond and she wanted Chief to help come up with the 1000.00 needed for bail.

I wasn’t there when she called so I don’t actually know what the actual conversation was between them and also if Chief was crushed after the call ended. But according to him, he told her that he absolutely wasn’t going to do anything to help him get OUT of jail when being IN jail was the best thing for him.

I reminded him that Weed has three bench warrants out on him for not paying fines from the FIRST time he was arrested… that he was still on probation for DOING THE SAME THING he got arrested for AND that it seems his only solid equation is:

DRUNK + LOSER FRIEND + CARS = JAIL

But yknow.. that’s just me

He also told me that she swore he wasn’t doing any of the stuff he was doing before IE: dealing pills, pot, drinking, etc. and Chief told her that was bullshit. In fact, he knew for sure that Weed was still doing that stuff because he’s been told by customers that Weed approached.

He also said that he knew for sure that Weed hadn’t done a goddamn thing to better his life.. hasn’t gotten his GED.. hasn’t even enrolled for it.. hasn’t gotten a legitimate job.

Funny thing is?

Court dockets are public record and at least here, they are updated 7 days a week. I checked before I started to post and guess what?

His bails been posted.

Amazing that she can come up with 1000.oo in a day when she can’t pay 43.00 a week in child support.

They have a court date on the 30th for the support.

We’ll see what happens then.
