    Ah I see. OK, maybe my boredom isn't so bad.

    Smile! Now!

    Some people are like Slinkys.
    Useless, but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    We are the music makers,and we are the dreamers of the dreams.

    End of line.

    Its a better number some social workers say but it does have its own emotionally taxing moments, like telling people in need to take a hike and stop bed blocking or trying to get people to make decisions about whether their relatives go to homes or go home.

    I don't think I'd be able to do that without feeling like bludgeoning myself later.

    Dear Employee Who Is Trying to Game The Unemployment System,

    Thanks for the evidence I need to prove you are lying to the government.

    I hope you enjoy not getting your unemployment check for awhile.

    With Love,
    Your still employer despite you filing saying I laid you off when I did not lay you off.

    P.S. lrn2Bsmarter

    Pretty much all areas of social work presently, in the UK at least, quickly incalcate the ideology of self-reliance into its practitioners, usually because besides the social worker themselves there are little or no resources. Definitely no money. Personal responsibility seldom goes hand in hand with resources and its easier to emphasis the former than seriously think about the later.

    Although to be honest in all my years as a social worker its not always the scarcity of resources that's the biggest problem, although some people can spend funds like they're going out of fashion and others cant, often its a matter of rank rather than proper "gate keeping", its choices.

    Some families or individuals want to access services but wont say so, deadbeats or drunks who really dont care about their kids but because of social attitudes, peer or family pressure or just fighting with the world wont ask for the available help or attempt to sabotage its provision when the decision is taken out of their hands. Other families in which children dont want to care for elderly relatives or parents with whom they've no affinity or attachment what so ever but the same elderly relatives or parents refuse to live in available homes and cant be allowed to live by themselves in desperate deprivation by the authorities who have become wise to their circumstances.

    Those are just some of the dilemmas.

    I think I need a break from this forum.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    If everybody wants to be a snowflake, does wanting to be like everybody make me a snowflake?
