Well it looks like two important things had to happen before our oldest was motivated enough to get a job.
1) He suddenly finds himself with a girlfriend
2) Mom and Dad finally told him he had to contribute to the gas needed to operate the 8 cylinder gas guzzler he borrows from Mom.
We are all very proud of him. He has been working for two weeks now and the only time he has complained is when he couldnt' get the smell of Onions off his hands. He he is working in our small town at the Sonic Drive-in as a fry cook. I think he enjoys it because he gets to work with is girl friend who is a car hop there.
