Default Kids and jobs

It shouldn't be this hard............
I've come to the conclusion it would be easier for my son (16) to get a job if he was a Mexican and crossed the boarder illegally. He just got a job at the local Y as a lifeguard. Not only did he have a stack of paperwork to fill out he has a drug screening. So he sets up a time (today) at a place about 10 miles away to go to. I leave early from work to take him over. When he gets there they ask him for photo ID (nowhere on the paperwork or their web site does it say this) He didn't have his school ID and he does not have a drivers license yet so he needs to go back again. Working papers aren't kept at the school........Nooooooo, their kept at the township building. And the person that handles it is only in twice a week. You need photo ID AND a birth certificate. For christ sake he's a student there already and they have this info. He also needs to have a physical done. The doctors 1st open slot is 6 weeks away. I'd be angry if the whole thing wasn't so funny.

The pisser is he's been working at a local camp the last two summers (8 weeks, 40 hours a week). They didn't ask for half the stuff he now needs for the Y, I guess they are really covering their ass. When all is said and done he'll be working at the summer camp again along with two weeknight and one weekend day at the Y. In September he'll be working 16 hours at week at the Y. I'm thankful I've got a kid who wants to earn his own money

at least he is getting a good, although inconvenient and infuriating, lesson in dealing with bureaucratic bs

agreed, and it pains my mind to think that all of our younger generations are going to be going through this type of CYA PC BS in every facet of their lives.


Dang, I miss the days when part of learning to drive was holding the beer between your legs and not spilling it on the corners.........
