For those who don’t know, I work at a treatment facility for women who’re either pregnant or have small children and are trying to get out of using drugs, alcohol, etc. Most of them have extra felonies.
Anyway…there’s one girl among our clients who’s always testing our patience in all possible ways and today she tested the last nerve on the three of us working the afternoon shift.
She decided to change her baby’s diaper right on the dining room table as people where preparing to eat supper.
Now I don’t care where she changes the diaper in her own home, but com’on… Add to that that her baby is actually sick and she was spreading extra germs by doing that.
We called her on it, she got pissed off, then it escalated with her going from annoyed to absolutely blowing up in our faces about the fact that she shouldn’t have to sanitize the table because it was our job to “clean up messes”.
We gave her a consequence (a.k.a punshiment…yes, these are adult women who need to be treated like lil’ kids sometimes. We have to ground them a lot), and she ended up filling out a complaint form on us.
I got home and found out that a service I cancelled a while back (school health insurance) had finally gone through and I’d had a refund on my credit card. Not only did the refund pay off my credit card debt, but it left me with an extra 200 that where deposited in my checking account.
…so I wandered over to Knitpicks…where I bought a few fixed circulars in small needle sizes…and a few EZ books.
I’m shameless…:oo: …
