And Another Thing…


The second stupidest thing I have heard this week

This pearl of wisdom comes from a client who was arrested then bailed out by her mother:

“My mom was totally pissed about having to come and bail me out. But jail, like, really sucked. I didn’t like it man; not one bit.”

    Mike – I loved that “pearl of wisdom.” Despite the difficulties in working with such a crowd, they certainly did provide their fair share “un” common sense to keep me laughing. Can’t say I miss it though!

    Ummm…. what was the first place for stupidest thing you heard this week?

  3. Jerri Harrington says:

    Duh….sorry….I may have made the stupidest comment this week. I guess I could blame it on short term memory loss…or being on vacation from watching my grandson….or from being outside too long in the heat….

    Milena – As it happens, I am working in substance abuse treatment rather than mental health these days. And I do miss MH from time to time, especially when I think of our “yoda.”

    Jerri – Don’t be too hard on yourself. I miss stuff like that all of the time. But I can honestly say that I have never been surprised at the thought of jail being somewhat unpleasant, and I doubt you have either.

    Yeah, I couldn’t do what you do. No way. That kinda thing would send me over.

  6. odgie says:

    Micah – You might be surprised. There are a lot of positives to it too.

  7. Kelly says:

    What would be surprising is if one of your clients came back from jail and said “Man, that totally rocked! Can’t wait to go back there!”

  8. odgie says:

    Kelly – Yeah, it would be like that song from the 80s that starts out “Hello Dad, i’m in jail! I like it here, it’s nice!”

    When I was in high school a classmate spent the weekend in jail. Not juvenile detention, because there was no center in the area at the time, but in regular county jail. He was picked up Friday evening, which is why he spent the weekend there. He came back saying it was bad in there, but full of “cool” information. Among other things, the inmates taught him how to light a cigarette without a match or lighter.

    I’m still trying to figure that one out.

    As with most things that take place in prison, we’re probably better off not knowing.
