Try to succeed
I am absolutely stoked today!!
I think I mentioned a homeless man that I brought home with me last week? He has had actually quite a good stable life. He lived his whole life for his mother, he has a sister in England, spoke to her on the phone shes not a nice person at all, a horrid human being really.
Cutting the story short he spent years taking care of his mother she ended up passing away with dementia but during that time a cousin of my homeless friend took over the house all the affairs and took the lot when the old lady died, leaving him absolutely homeless!
My new friend looks like hes in his 80s but found out he is on fact 69 years old. Had a yarn to my boss yesterday at lunchtime and ended up talking about him. THE BEST NEWS EVER GUYS...Boss has asked him to start at my job today to get him on his feet!!! What... this is awesome.
My friend is OVER THE MOON.
Im tipper driving so im hardly at the yard and will only see him here n there when I go back for something but boss has got him cleaning the lunch toom, office, making tea n coffee, sweeping, cleaning the inside of trucks and small jobs in the workshop cos my friend is quite a handy man.
Twenty bucks an hour, full time 45 hours a week hes a happy man!
He said he will move out asap but iv asked him to stay, I want him well n truly on his feet before he goes. He has agreed to pay me board for his accommodation so he feels like a contributing man but I will take very minimal amount.. hes got his own space but Gran still toodles out there with hot meals and baking. I tell her to let him have his space but she cant stop herself taking food to him non stop lol, im sure hes sick of her lol. Anyway all hes doing is trying.. we all are. Just try on your quit guys, success is in the trying not the end result :)
