Friday Funny

fill up this bowl fuckface!

Cyanide and Happiness, a daily webcomic
Cyanide & Happiness @ Explosm.net


remember a few months ago when we took in one of Youngest's friends? Because she was left home alone, blah blah blah? Apparently not only is she the one who turned him on to smoking, she was also stealing from us. Lighters, cigarettes, etc... I had the urge to call her mom, but fuck it. Mom was the one who left her home alone for 2 months, will she really care or believe this new turn of events? It still breaks my heart though-I opened my home to you and you steal from me?

Youngest has been a full time smoker for several months now. As of today, him and I have both quit. And he's feeling it, as am I. But you know what? Even though he can't legally smoke, I feel like an asshole making him quit while I'm still smoking. So there you have it.

Hopefully there will be no blood shed in the next few days.

What. The. Fuck.

So my brilliant child, in his infinite wisdom, had decided to smoke. He's 14.

I was smelling cigarette smoke in the house and I couldn't figure out why. I asked him, and he denied denied denied.

He went camping with friends yesterday, and after he left Hubbs called me and said there was a pack of cigarettes missing from his purchase the night before.

So I tossed his room. And what did I find? 2 empty packs of cigs, our missing white lighter, and his ashtray. Which is a metal coin bank that belonged to my dead mother. My dead mother!

I know kids do as we do and not as we say, but he has seen me struggle with quitting. What in the name of all that is holy would even make him think this was a good idea?

He'll be home this evening, and boy is he in for a big surprise. I already took his computer out of his room, and I'll be taking his cell phone as well. And of course, grounded until we decide he's not anymore. I'm not even giving him a time frame.

Silly fucker.

I know I shouldn't feel guilty, kids experiment, and even kids that have parents who don't smoke pick up the habit. But I do. I really, really do.

What the f?

My brother has been in a horrible accident. He wrecked his Harley and is currently in ICU with a collapsed lung, damage to his spleen, a broken collarbone, and a broken thumb. And of course, severe road rash.

Healthy thoughts please.

You think I'd be posting more with all this time on my hands.

I interviewed for 2 jobs-was told by one "Unfortunately we can't utilize the talent of all the applicants blah blah blah"

The second one, the one I really thought I nailed? Haven't heard a word. Not even a callback saying they hired someone else. I don't understand.

Hubbs says we'll be ok, cutting out drinking and him doing side jobs, until I do find a job. But COME ON. I am not a sit in the house all day kind of person. I want to work. I enjoy working. I enjoy contributing to the household budget.

Sadly, the job market here is FUCKED. I check the job postings every day, and there hasn't been shit.
