Tonight, I had already eaten but tried to help my mom eat some...A woman near us said to me, ''Dear, can you get my chair, over there?"  I wondered if I should...I know she often asks people to do things unrelated to what she really needs...To sweeten the deal, she said, ''Honey, you're pretty.'' Lol.  So - I should help her now!

 

An aide was actually helping the resident to eat.  My mom nudged me.  "HELP her!''  as in, go get the chair!  What are you waiting for! 

 

I looked at the aide, who rolled her eyes a little and shook her head ''no.''

 

I don't know how the folks who work there keep their sanity!
