You mention a CO who supposedly ‘can’t manage on their own’ and you feel ‘sad’.
Well, that’s nice you can feel sad. I’m inclined to feel nothing for them..I remember the visits from the CO intensifying the negative opinion towards me back in the day because I worked full-time. These people had no concept of what it was like to live in the Real world and pay bills! But yet they made stupid remarks about materialism 🙄. They thought everybody should be concerned with their dietary needs and food allergies!
I’m glad I’m not there now for anybody to come up to me on the QT with an envelope asking for $.
I resisted all the pressure back then to quit my job and pioneer. They really put me through the wringer with shunning and labeling..But I am Retired today..Even though half of me wanted to be accepted, I just didn’t do it and I’ll get down on my knees in thankfulness for that.
