You’re lucky you aren’t a Third World boy.
Go steal the catalytic converter from Veeblefester’s car!
Snarky again, Gladys!
Fortunately, he gets paid nonetheless.
Brutus must be doing something right, they have a roof over their heads, clothes, and food to eat.
I’m retired but I feel like I’m working harder now than when I was employed.
I was 11 when I began my paper-round, 1963…
Like Gladys has any room to talk.
I have a BiL like that. He’s retired, but no-one can figure out what he’s retired from. His father once confided in me that they expected him to be an astronaut, because in school he mostly took up space.
I started a paper route around 8 or 9. At 10 I helped my dad with his second job scrubbing floors in an office building. At 14 my folks lied about my age so that I could work summers and Saturdays in a factory. They grew up during the depression.
A child’s never too young to find some work and learn some responsibility.
Unkind Gladys, unkind…
I’ve never understood how those two ever got married – or dated beyond their first outing. And how did they ever mage to have a kid? SMH.
And what work did Gladys do? Learn how to snag a man to take care of her?
get a job or did anything at it? :D
12, because I was the only one who knew how to use a Commodore 64 at a new office my dad did projects for.
Looks like Gladys has been talking with Veebs. But I’m impressed Wilberforce asked to work instead of for Mom and Dad to just give him money!
I was 12 when I started working at the YMCA picking up towels and mopping floors. I was paid $2/hour under the table in cash because I was too young to have my working papers.
1 Timothy 6:8 So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content. Gladys’ missing out on the best part of life. A faithful providing Husband and loving child.
If you go by Charles Dicken’s famous novel of a boy put to work, Oliver Twist, I believe he was put to work in the workhouse on his 9th birthday. So does Wilberforce not look like 9 yet?
I’ve been fortunate in my life to have loved working at the four main jobs of my life, US Army, Police Officer, Deputy District Attorney/Special Assistant US Attorney and now College Professor. While each job most definitely had some very bad days, I enjoyed and still enjoy going to work every day that I did and do. I really can’t say that my work was hard or bad as I enjoyed it so much. So, I’m with him, I’ve yet to go to work as an adult except in my yard which I really do hate…..
Good ole Gladys Thornapple, she never misses a change to give the knife she just plunged into Brutus’s back a twist.
Not cool Gladys, being snarky about the family provider, and to your son.
If you do what you love…… for someone else’s company, you’ll learn to hate it.
I started at 11. Restaurant.
No wonder Wilberforce is often confused.
Way to go Gladys, your mother would be proud of you.
NEWS FLASH ! The Browns won a football game !
Low blow, Gladys! Low blow!
My first job was when I was 16 at Robert Hall.
stfu gladys because the only work you do is running your fat mouth
