Today is Friday, and that means cooking class. Today I will make Shepherds Pie. It has been so long since I have made ... no wait, I have never made Shepherds Pie. I know how, I just never made it before, and I have high hopes it will be a favorite among the girls.
Another step towards my revelation list.
Yesterday, the meeting did not go as well as I had hoped, I just have to learn that those in charge don't really care about these people. They are only concerned with the bottom line ... what looks good on paper.
We have a doctor (For lack of a better term) that is a total a$$. He won't give an inch. We have one lady on steroids for life, and she is ballooning up gaining 6 or more pounds every month. I realize that steroids put on weight, but she is soooo hungry, and she is self abusive and pounds herself because she is on a restricted diet. I have asked if there is a way to give her an appetite suppressant, but he won't even discuss it. Last month I bought her all new clothes in a size 3x and they look like they are painted on her. Now she is having knee problems because of the weight.
Then we have another lady who is 93 years old. She had a mastectomy a few years ago, and is understandably fearful of doctors. Her specialist in Pittsburgh said no more mammograms or exams. Even if they would find something, she is too old and frail to go through the procedures again. HOWEVER, our wonderful doctor has her on monthly exams and yearly mammograms. She has to be medicated to take those tests. I wish they would just let her alone and let her enjoy whatever is left of her life in peace.
The person in charge of her spending, does not care for me at all, and I think she is a waste of air. The individuals get a $200 clothing allotment and a $80 Christmas allotment yearly. Last October I started asking her to get the purchase order for the clothes ... because although they control the money, we (the lowly grunts) do the shopping and then they go in and pay for what we pick out. I did the Christmas shopping but as of yesterday she had not done a purchase order for the clothes ... guess what it is now 2012, and at the meeting yesterday, she said she had not done nor was she going to do the p/o and that I had one week to do the shopping on my time off, yet.
They tell you when you get this job not to let yourself get attached, but how is that possible. I guess I am a slow learner, because I see now why.
I guess I just needed to vent, because I will do the shopping on my Friday off, and she (who shall not be named) can then go in on her day off and pick up the items ... revenge is a dish better served cold.
