My stupid boyfriend went to jail six months ago, and he is still there.
He still has three more months left on this sentence.
He was the only person working at the time of his arrest, and I had to get a job when he went to jail. I found something quickly, which was really great. I was working at a pizza joint delivering pies, soda, and a variety of baked treats. During the first few months, things were fine. It was summer and the tourists were abundant. Unfortunately, the pizza shop has been slow this month, and the owner cut my hours almost entirely. Then last week, they finally fired me. They found out that my boyfriend was in jail and they told me that was against their code of conduct policy. I thought I was doing a good job. I was working really hard and I was even working overtime when requested. I’m really angry, because my stupid boyfriend got me into this entire mess. He was doing a lot of good things, before his brother came back to town. As soon as his brother was back in the picture, my boyfriend started staying out late and missing work. Now we are in a load of trouble, because the furnace needs to be replaced. My mom and dad won’t pay for a new furnace, because my boyfriend is irresponsible. His parents won’t pay for a new furnace because he is in jail. I don’t know what to do, because I have three kids and no heat in the middle of October. The temperatures are only going to get colder, and the furnace is done for good.
