But you need to realize they are not doing this in their spare time. They have a job to do, and it is coming down from someone above them. If the individual themself is a pain in the backside, then I understand your frustration. But if the man or woman is only doing their job, that should be respected. Respect might be a tough thing to come by in that situation, but for the job they are doing, I believe they deserve it.
Originally posted by chisslerI normally shoot straight from the hip. If I have something to say or feel something, I am very confident in saying it to ones face. This normally gets me in trouble because I can easily create a stir, but atleast what I feel is being said to the person rather than behind their back. If I am capable of helping the family, I will gladly tell you. If there is not much I can do, very politely and optimistically I will tell you as well.

It just seems like they see so many cases so they start treating everybody's personal experiences the same. Like they assume that just because you're applying for medical assistance then you must be lazy and not want to work. When my son was in the hospital when he was a baby because for some reason he wasn't able to digest any nourishment, I was on medical assistance and the resident social worker was interviewing me to see if the problem was something at home (which is fine, she was doing her job), I had explained to her that I had just quit my job to stay at home with my new baby, she had the nerve to say "Oh wow, you actually worked!?" as if I didn't seem like the type to work for a living.
