Dr. Phil: Chase Spent $1,200 On Video Games, Not Child Support
Chase says that there has been no court arrangement made to figure out child support, and says that he buys diapers and clothes for his son. However, after pulling out receipts for video games totaling around $1,200—which is ironic considering how big of a problem Chase had with his mom’s spending—Dr. Phil began to doubt the honesty of Chase’s claims.
Dr. Phil told Chase that his lifestyle is not conducive to being a father at all. He can’t even have a part-time job with a child and afford to spend like that on video games. Dr. Phil told him that if you don’t have a job, your job is finding a job. If you have a part-time job, your job is still finding a job to make it so you’re working for 40 to 50 hours a week, and Chase admitted to never making this happen.
Dr. Phil: Ed And Johnna Think Chase Is Lying
Johnna and Ed both thought that Chase is lying about his efforts to find and hold work. They got him a bus pass that he never used, but Chase said that he never used it because they never showed him how to use it, which Ed and Johnna deny. After that, it was a whole lot of he said, she said.
Dr. Phil asked Chase seriously, if he could possibly be 23 and be incapable of figuring out how to ride a bus on his own, and Chase didn’t have much to say.
Dr. Phil: Chase Doesn’t Know How To Ride A Bus
Chase’s mother tried to get him a job in Tampa, but Chase turned it down because he said it was too far of a commute to have to do every day. He also, ironically enough, said that he didn’t want to have to depend on his mother to do something that he could do for himself. Voices were raised, laughs were had, and Dr. Phil wisely suggested a commercial break.
