This has become a pattern with this aptly named user.

Sassy is alright, I like that user name.
No one is going to like all the advice given.
It takes some of us a lot of effort just to awake in the morning so let's be nice

Here's the thing. Today the world is tough. Usually there are 3 options. School, a job, or the military. Your son has to pick one for his future unless you plan on footing him for the next year's to come.

At 18 it's do what you want as it's your life.. But you have to pay the cost to be the boss.

No. What was stupid was you resorting to stupid, juvenile name calling. After suggesting that the guy has plenty of time to be working and getting back a lame excuse, along with a page of other lame excuses, I questioned why she asked for opinions if she would entertain none of them.

You're another one who seems to have all the answers - how long would you be willing to allow the status quo to continue?

I know that this suggestion would be way too easy. Have you told him, "Threatening self harm, pregnancy, abortion/entrapment-for-child-support is really not normal and not cool. I know you love her and are having fun and that it obviously isn't all bad, but is it really worth it?"

ETA..Glad it resolved itself.
