William needed to call the temporary agency today. I went over with him what he needed to say and ask during the call. He is a quiet person who doesn’t talk to a lot of people or talk on the phone so he needed some coaching. He is really too old for this kind of direction from me, but he doesn’t know what to do without any help, so it is a frustrating time that we must get through to find William a job. With each call it gets easier for him. He needed to give them his name, let them know that he had finished the paperwork and had gotten his steel toe boots and see if they had any jobs available for him. If they didn’t he needed to ask when he should call back. He called and said to the person who answered did they have any jobs on our side of town. They said sometimes. They both hung up. I said that they didn’t know that it was William that called or that he had his boots. He needed to call back and give the correct information. I asked William if he wanted to write a quick list of what to ask and say. He said no he didn’t need one. He called back and gave the correct information. The person said that they would look to see if they had any jobs for him and leave a message on our machine tomorrow. William also asked if he could sign up with other agencies since this one doesn’t have many jobs on our side of town. The said yes. They both hung up. William said that he would check the answering machine tomorrow and call them back if there were any jobs.
Tomorrow we can look for another agency to sign him up at if he doesn’t have a job yet. When we call we can first ask if they place people on our side of town a lot before he takes the time to sign up.

William went into the temporary agency this morning. I drove him over. He said that if I didn’t drive him he wasn’t sure that he would make it there on time. He needed to take two forms of identification. When we got into the car I asked to see his two ID’s. If he gets there and doesn’t have all of the paperwork, they will either not hire him or take longer to hire him. I sent him back inside for the cards. He wanted me to go in with him to answer any questions that he couldn’t answer. I said that he is too old for me to go in with him. He took his bike in the trunk to ride home. I dropped him off about a half an hour early. Before we left the house I prayed for him. The prayer was a little bit longer than usual. I prayed for William, the place that he would work, the people that he would work with, that they would be nice and lead him in his career and be good to him and for God’s protection.
I told William that I would love him forever but I expected him to come home with a job and to fit in there and to keep the job. Tonight we will see how it went. I hope that it is a job that he enjoys.
The purpose of William going to the temporary agency was to meet them and to show them that he was who he said he was. He had already signed up and done all of the testing online. The man told William that he needed to get steel toed boots and call him back. Then they would try to place him. Most of the jobs that William can do are on the other side of town. Later , we went and got the steel toed boots. When we got to the store William looked at the boots and picked out a pair that he liked. He put them into the cart. I said no he had to try them on. He tried one on and said that they were OK. I said no he had to try both of them on and walk in them. He did and he still liked them.
When I get him clothes he won’t go with me any more. I measure his clothes and write down the length and take the measurement and the tape measure with me. It is only for shoes that I insist that he come with me.
