Woooo hoooooooooooooo bunnies!
Talk about excitement! Well- mine at least… Damien got the part time job at the bike customising shop! And while I was grinning from ear to ear and dying to phone them and gush and say thank you (a temptation I resisted, lol)… in typical dour teenager style Damien hardly batted an eyelash. He will be working on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays after school, then Saturdays and school holidays. He’s really starting at the bottom with things like sanding and cleaning (tee hee) but he’s very excited and the shop has a brilliant national reputation! I don’t think he’s even asked how much he’s being paid.
This is what he’s going to be learning to do… albeit eventually!
We also spoke about discussing budgeting as soon as he gets his first paycheck- and he’ll be responsible for his own toiletries from then on. And as his earnings rise, so will his financial responsibilities at home- board and lodging being the eventual outcome- like I had to do.
He’s very chuffed with himself- he already came home with homework from his new boss!
