Back then cable modems were just coming out and i was left out of that as dial up AOL was my only option in the hotel room while i was living in the hotel and couldnt wait to get into a house so i could get a low ping while playing half life deathmatch or better yet counterstrike.Although i truly believe my skills in the game went up as i had to much better predict what folks were doing when they had a 150-200 ping and mine was in the 400-500 range.When this problem began I tried pretty much everything I could think of short of going and sitting in his classes finally said”OK, you don’t want to do your work, I’ll let you suffer the consequences and fail 9th grade.Imagine my horror when he was passed anyway with D’s and F’s!! Sorry for the rant just saying I’d always been told you had to do something bad to have a child removed; NOT TRUE! Reply When I was in college, our school had a habit of over-accepting for the new freshman class and would run out of dorms.Check it: We spend roughly $2200 on our mortgages every month, $300 or so on utilities (including cable & internet), then another $125 in homeowner association fees, random ass repairs (we’ll call that $200 a month on average) furniture to fill the house, and on and on and on.So conservatively, we spend about $2800 to live out of this damn house (!!!! Divide that by 30 and we’re basically spending $93.00 every SINGLE day to sleep here. And in case you haven’t guessed yet, we could rent a hotel room for the same cost, if not less!
Even if you personally didn’t participate, (which,honestly, if you’re kids are being taken away its for a reason) that kind of environment is unsuitable for anyone normal.Actually, I bet you can very well sort out some long-term rates with certain hotels to REALLY knock down your payments.Plus w/ all the reward points you’d get from both the hotel AND by putting it on your credit card, you’ll be saving even more every single month. :) Boy, there’s a lot to consider when you really start thinking about this!Finally he was removed when he was told he had 3 months to get his grades up (he would go to school and air and flirt with girls and do no schoolwork in class).
I had him in counseling and tutoring; he didn’t believe they would take him so he continued not turning in his homework or doing schoolwork.
It WAS neat getting to know all the front desk attendants and playing pranks on them at night.
