Yesterday I met a 2 year old whose father had been giving him cocaine, cigarettes, and beer. His mother is from Mexico, and the father is a Mexican-American. Basically, the father provided everything to keep them alive, but then kept them at home. The mother has been in America for 2 years but knows almost no English (which made working with her almost impossible without translators) and has not met a single person due to pretty much being held captive. Now she's terrified that he's after her.

On the other side, last week I had a woman who kept her syringes and crack spoon on the floor. In the same bedroom as her 7 year old daughter. This is after waking up and freaking out that she couldn't find her daughter. She was asleep in the same bedroom. On the bed. Because there was no physical abuse, Family Services figured she'd be better off with her mother. The next day the mother called crying wanting her stuff back. We'd given it to her the next day. While she was in the room and helped pack it herself.

What depresses me about such situations is that these children are going to end up living their lives the same way. It's a waste. During the resident intakes, the majority of these women and their abusers that I deal with all suffered some form of abuse or addictions during their childhoods as well. Not saying that EVERYBODY ends up that way, but the people who do seemed to mostly have all experienced the same shit. Incestual rape, father beat the mother, affairs, personal physical abuse, drug dealing out of the house, kept prisoner as an unwanted child by unloving parents, blah blah blah. The stuff you read about on the news and say "why didn't someone take that child out of there?!" is the stuff I work with. It's dirty.

Sadly, most of the residents I deal with don't care. They don't want to become independent - for now, they want to mooch off of us, then go out and find another man to become totally dependent on again. They have no job skills, no meaningful education for the most part, lack parenting skills, and don't care to acquire any of them. Once again, the children are the ones that will end up suffering for it later.

There are a few who actually take advantage of help. They want their children to have better lives. Those make the job easier. But still. Rough job. So how's life? i'm a serial-killer :)

What is it that you do, exactly?

Last night at work I worked in my ice cream store from 6 to midnight. It's cool late at night because there's a club next door and their music is really loud. Some drunk people stole two of my chairs but I stole them back. It was a good night.

I work at Home Depot. We get some crazies and some idiots, blithering idiots. Nothing like what IF0 has to deal with, though. Not likely, anyway.

I get some funny stories though, dumbass kinda funny stories.

It was long and boring.

I drove a 40' boom lift around and we scraped paint and applied a product called "peel stop" so that the gutters that we were going to paint wouldn't keep peeling under the new coat.

I came home and fell asleep for hours.

Well for the first hour at work, me and a regular compared fucked up pictures we had on our phones... For a guy he sure did have a lot of pictures of dicks on his phone.. fun times...
I had the highest per person average at work, so I ended up winning tickets to a braves game as well. so that was good.

I deal with the largest variety of bitches and ass holes, not much you can say bothers me anymore.
All I can say is you would think people would treat you better since you are the one handling their food. Not that I would ever do anything... just saying...

I ran western blots on various proteins and drank a Coca-Cola Icee.

I wasn't depressed for any of it, which was a pleasant surprise.

It was okay, I guess. It was kind of busy, so it seemed like the shift went by very quickly. Much like HP and Sunny, I too made hundreds of beverages for people, young and/or fat. I also made myself a delicious latte and drew a picture of a guy with a mullet in the foam. That was pretty sweet.

I cleared tables. Alot of them.

I have gotten quite a few pet peeves associated with this. Most notably, I FUCKING HATE LITTLE KIDS. They throw rice everywhere, leave crayons and little doodles all over the place, pour water onto the floor, and most annoying of all, open every fucking sugar packet on the table and leave them lying.

Oh and I broke a bowl that cost $40 because the servers don't know how to put shit into the bus bins properly.

My boss is away all week, so I didn't come home with a headache. I checked the weather only about six times. I catalogued 18 books. Ate lunch. Ate assorted snacks. Talked to one of my co-workers for extended periods of time. Wrote out a grocery list. Plotted what courses to register for this semester. Read Wikipedia for an hour.

Thats the worst part about waiting tables, that and dropping stuff on or near people.
Little kids blow, they like to stick food in the sugar caddies, and rearrange all the sugars. People should control their kinds better in restaurants, otherwise I'm gonna start putting them to work washing dishes in the back.

So this is what you do at your three internships and ten full-time jobs, IF0? You're in a tough line of work; I salute you. Those are some heart-breaking stories.

Yesterday I worked an 11 hour shift, doing close to 400 scripts.
One anecdote: an Asian couple came into the pharmacy wanting 2-month vacation refills on their combined 12 scripts. Their prescription insurance coverage requires them to call their provider and request this. They went home, presumably to call their insurance company. Later on, I get a call from a competing pharmacy chain that the couple wants to transfer all 12 scripts to their store. Fuck that; I just finished filling them for a one month supply until we got the authorization for two months. I hang up on the competing pharmacy, and they don't call back. The Asian man returns to our store, claiming he got authorization from the insurance company. I try to process the claim, and I get a rejection -- there is a 24 hour waiting period. I am damn glad I am not working today.

Today I was trying to get the A-C plane of a crystal (basically a way of cutting it so the little cubic structures line up a certain way) which involved getting the crystal growth man to help me x ray it and show me where to cut it. Then the diamond saw started cutting it but the crystal kept breaking apart. Eventually a big enough chunk broke off so I sanded down one side and tomorrow I'm going to polish the good side.

I don't actually do much this summer besides work full time. But I'm earning benefits and a lot of paid vacation and whatnot. When school starts I'll be doing full time work plus full time classes, and that might be a bit rough.
