I rarely blog; I write so much for school I’m reluctant to voluntarily put fingers to the keyboard. However, I simply don’t understand as the year comes to an end why people do the things they do.

I would think that I’m working with adults that all are employed with a human services agency because they want to help people…. NOT SO!!!

I would think that the employees will have more common sense than the residents who are intellectually disabled…NOT SO!!!

I would think that when a 77 year old man with a severely compromised respiratory system dies of pneumonia in the hospital under the care of a physician it’s not an event to be investigated before the man is even laid to rest…NOT SO!!!

I would think that when all three members of a love triangle are likely to be seated at the same small table for a meal after a funeral, one of them would be good enough to beg off….NOT SO!!!

I would think that someone who walks into my office with a list of 31, yes 31 concerns that she feels warrant my attention on the day before a Christmas holiday, 5 minutes before the office party luncheon is to begin, would spend 3 hours reviewing the list in detail with the hopes of resolving them and not then handing in her resignation effective immediately (did I mention right before a long holiday weekend)…NOT SO!!!

I would think that after 40 years of the same old bull$hit, I would change professions….DEFINITELY NOT SO!!!

    I've come to expect the unexpected. For me its not what happens but how I deal with it. Learning to love me first so I can then give back a healthier form of love is cru

    Hey there,
    I was stopping by to give you a big "thank you" for stopping by my page--and I ran into this. I am not going to mess up your delightful use of sarcasm by adding my own bits and pieces to go with it, but I could definitely add to it.
    What is with people anymore? Being entirely self-absorbed and self-serving seems to be encouraged rather than abolished. I don't get it.

    All I can do is wish you some better moments to outweighs the nasty that went on preceding this blog. I guess when they say that "it takes all kinds" that they really meant it.

    You are a kind and caring person--I understand why those behaviors would not sit well with you.
    Gentle hugs,

    Truly a mess. This time of year is stressful enough without added drama. I hope things calm down for you soon.
