Today, my son was fired from his new job, which was going to support us since I recently lost mine. His excuse was, "Conflict of interest." He was a mascot for a fast-food restaurant and refused to dance around. FML

You were going to support your family off of your son's job?

It's terrible having to ask a child to get a job to support his parents. It's worse still asking him to do something humiliating like that. Try to have some understanding, and next time have him get a better job. Like a stripper.

When he asks why he no longer has a house to live in, tell him "Conflict of interests." Fyl.

He isn't the only family member without a job. For all we know he is a 15 year old going to school. If he doesn't have a place to live the blame doesn't just fall on his shoulders. Who are the parents and who is the kid?

I don't think that's what that means.

I wish all of the OP would reply to some of the commenters questions.

Well, now OP knows there's a job opening. Go ahead mom & shake that mascot tail feather!!

It is just a joke. Jeez! Dat is at 32! Jeez!!

It is not the childs responsibility at any point to support his or her parents. Is it your house? They have to follow your rules? Then it is your fucking responsibility.

Well sounds like it'd be a bad move to kick the kid out if he is the only one capable of earning an income of even a fast food mascot.. Tho apparently not for long. I wonder how much of a fuck up the parents are to have to rely on that. Economy be damned they should never suck from their kid. Maybe if that part time minimum wage job was what the parents were relying on they should be the ones out there doing it instead of complaining they now will have no money when they are the ones not working as well. I mean obviously they lost their jobs first and haven't been productive enough to get a better one than the kid. I could rant more, people like that just piss me off.

Welcome to the obamanation .

yeah id say hurry and find a job dont rely on your son. sure he can assist you with i,t but get back on the wagon! Goodluck.

<Implying the father doesn't deserve to be helped by the spawn he raised for approximately 18 years.

<Implying that the OP is a father despite the fact that it clearly says (woman), also implying that the parents didn't ask for said spawn in the first place, ALSO implying that the son is 18 when he could easily be as young as 16>

Thank you! You should not be reliant on your children to support you, especially if it involves required humiliation.

What if the mother was trying as hard as she could to find another job, but needed a bit of help while she was doing that. Also, what if the son was older than 18, and was still living in his parents house, it would make sense that he should help out a bit.

I wouldn't dance either...people that do that get made fun of all the time. It's sweaty enough already lets just add dancing into the mix. Maybe he was trying his hardest to help but and he honestly couldn't stoop that low, and he shouldn't have to..he's not the parent..

Unless of course he is older than 18, and still living in his parents house. Then it would make sense that he should help out a bit.

Yeah #154 but that doesn't mean he should support the entire family. Maybe helping with a few bills or groceries some times but definitely not the entire household.

Why'd he even apply for that job then?

To wear the awesome suit?

They don't always tell you that you're going to have to do that haha so maybe he didn't kno??

you need to find a job QUICK._.

He'll rethink that when he's doing a talent on the street for tips. Kinda sucky when you come home short

yea and the mother should do some job searching, sorry moms sons are not your husbands and they are not your providers. Also its Shianna of the ghetto get welfare and stfu

Not the brightest sport, is he?

I don't see how refusing to dance has anything to do with his intelligence.

It's terrible having to ask a child to get a job to support his parents. It's worse still asking him to do something humiliating like that. Try to have some understanding, and next time have him get a better job. Like a stripper.

Strippers still have to dance.

Hey doc can you please write about your new profile pic soon on your blog thank you :)

Man no wonder this nation is on the express route down the shitter. The kids today would all die if they would have lived during the first great depression. Yes I said first because we are now one the "second great depression" people now a days are a disgrace to their fathers and grandfathers

So you're saying a mascot for a restraunt is going to support the family because you can't keep a job?

Times are damn hard out there. Almost everyone I know is suffering financial hardship. Don't get down. Important to stay positive & work at getting another job. Good luck.
