i humbled myself to emailing the 'rental units for some work advice a week ago.
the mother emails me back 4 days ago saying they'll get back to me.
i finally get a phone call yesterday--AFTER i've already been fired. (great timing--think i could'a used that advice a while ago, perhaps??)
so, i didn't bother to tell her I'd lost the job. not that she apparently cared to hear it. i would talk for a while, then there's be this long pause before a completely disinterested response like "yeah..." honestly, it sounded like she put the phone down and only decided to answer me during obvious long pauses/tv commercials.
smooth, mom, real smooth. way to NOT make your only child feel like a total unwanted reject. apparently i'm too boring now to even bother with the physchological, manipulative guilt trips. she didn't even BOTHER to ask if i'm coming home for the holidays (which would have been a huge negatory, anyway.)
