ASSIST. ADM. AT KINTOCK, THREATENS TO SEND MY HUSBAND BACK TO PRISON....OVER A CUP OF TEA!

I HAVE SOME NEWS ABOUT KINTOCK, THAT TOOK PLACE THE OTHER DAY, AND I'M SURE YOU WILL FIND IT A LITTLE SHOCKING, BUT THE STORY DOES HAVE A GOOD OUTCOME.........AND I WRITE THIS, TO LET THE PUBLIC SEE THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF UNFAIR THINGS THAT GO ON WITHIN OUR PRISON SYSTEM, AND THAT IS WHY WE NEED PEOPLE LIKE MARTHA STEWART, WHO SAW FOR HERSELF WHAT IT WAS LIKE.....AND HOPEFULLY SHE WILL WORK ON THE ISSUES OF "PRISON REFORM."

WELL, ON FRIDAY, JIMMY'S ROOM, WHICH HE SHARES WITH AROUND 12 OTHER MEN ( THIS ITSELF IS UNBELIEVABLE, AND I FEEL UNSANITARY), WAS FOUND TO HAVE BECOME INFESTED WITH "BUGS," WHICH WERE BELIEVED TO BE "BED BUGS."........SO JIMMY AND THE OTHER MEN WERE NOT ALLOWED TO GO TO WORK THAT NIGHT..........THE MEN ARE ALL BITTEN UP BY THESE INSECTS, TOO.  THE MEN HAD TO TAKE ALL THEIR CLOTHES AND PUT THEM IN PLASTIC BAGS, GO AND WASH THEM , AND AS JIMMY HAS A LOT OF SUITS AND JACKETS, HE HAS TO GET THEM DRY-CLEANED...AND , AS YOU CAN WELL IMAGINE, AT HIS OWN EXPENSE!

SO, THE STORY CONTINUES, THAT THE MEN HAD TO 'EVACUATE" THEIR ROOM AT 3 AM, SO THE PLACE COULD BE EXTERMINATED....THEY WERE NOT ALLOWED BACK IN THEIR ROOM UNTIL 12 NOON......SO, OF  COURSE, THEY HAVE NO WHERE TO SIT, AND WAIT AROUND....NO WHERE TO SLEEP AND REST.............BUT, FOR JIMMY, IT WAS OK..........HE KEPT BUSY.

THE STORY CONTINUES....WE ARE NOT AT THE CLIMAX , YET!

JIMMY HAS BEEN AT KINTOCK FOR 5 MONTHS.  HE HAS DONE 1700 HOURS OF COMMUNITY WORK, COOKING IN THE KITCHEN........THAT IS HE COOKED IN THE KITCHEN FOR 1700 HOURS, WITHOUT PAY, SIMPLY BECAUSE HE LIKES TO WORK, AND HE IS A MAN WHO CANNOT SIT  IDLE....................ALSO, HE HAS NEVER GONE INTO THE "TV" ROOM, EXCEPT HE TOOK ME IN THER FOR A FEW MINUTES ON CHRISTMAS DAY.........THE TV IS UP HIGH, ON THE CEILING, AND HE DOES NOT ENJOY SITTING THERE WITH THE GUYS WATCHING IT.  PERIOD....

AND SO, AROUND 11 AM, JIMMY WENT INTO THE TV ROOM, ON FRIDAY, WITH NO OTHER PLACE TO GO, AS HIS ROOM WAS STILL OFF LIMITS........

HE BROUGHT A CUP OF TEA INTO THE TV ROOM, NOT KNOWING THAT 'NO FOOD, NO DRINKS,' IN THE TV ROOM, WAS THE RULE........HE INNOCENTLY BROUGHT THE CUP OF TEA IN THERE.

SUDDENLY, THE ASSISTANT ADMINISTRATOR RUNS OVER TO HIM, SAYING YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DRINK TEA IN HERE.........JIMMY APOLOGIZED, AND TRIED TO EXPLAIN HE WAS NOT AWARE OF THAT RULE, AND THAT HE HAS BEEN SITTING UP SINCE 3 AM, WITH NO ROOM TO GO TO.

WELL, THE ASSISTANT ADMINISTRATOR DID NOT WANT TO HEAR IT!...........AT THAT POINT HE SAID, 'I CAN SEND YOU BACK TO PRISON, RIGHT NOW, IF I WANTED TO."......................YES, EVERYONE, FOR A SIMPLE CUP OF TEA, HE WANTED TO SEND HIM BACK TO PRISON!

NOW, BEING INTELLECTUAL PEOPLE, JIMMY AND I DECIDED HE WAS PROBABLY JUST "HAVING A BAD DAY.".......THIS IS THE CASE FOR PEOPLE ON THEIR JOBS....THEY CARRY THEIR PROBLEMS TO THE WORK-PLACE, AND THEN TAKE IT OUT ON THE FIRST PERSON THEY SEE!

AND THE STORY GETS EVEN BETTER!.............

HE THEN CAME BACK TO JIMMY AND SAID THAT JIMMY IS BANNED FROM WORKING IN THE KITCHN....HE IS NO LONGER TO WORK OR HELP OUT IN THE KITCHEN.

NOW, MY HUSBAND IS WELL- LIKED IN THE KITCHEN , AND IS A VERY HARD-WORKER THERE.  KINTOCK HAD TO GET 2 OR 3 MEN TO TAKE THE PLACE OF MY HUSBAND , TO DO THE WORK JIMMY WAS DOING THERE WHEN JIMMY GOT HIS OUTSIDE JOB.

JIMMY CALLED ME ON THE PHONE, AND TOLD ME ALL OF THIS, THAT WAS HAPPENING............I LISTENED TO HIM.......AND WE TALKED ABOUT IT,,,

WELL, AN ANGEL MUST HAVE BEEN LOOKING DOWN ON US THAT DAY..................JIMMY CALLED ME BACK SOON, WITH THE GOOD NEWS!................THE 'ANGEL" IS A KITCHEN MANAGER, MR. D   (i will not say his name)...........MR. D. WENT TO THIS ASSIST. ADM. AND SAID, YOU CANNOT DO THAT TO JIMMY...YOU CANNOT BAN HIM FROM THE KITCHEN, AS HE IS THE BEST AND HARDIEST WORKER HERE.............YES, MR. D HAD THE COURAGE AND UNDERSTANDING TO GO AND SPEAK TO THE ADMINISTRATOR, AND SPEAK UP FOR MY HUSBAND......................AND HE DEFENDED MY HUSBAND!.................WHAT A WONDERFUL AND MOST BLESSED MAN THIS IS!...........I KNOW THAT ONLY GOOD THINGS WILL HAPPEN TO HIM IN HIS LIFE, AND THAT OTHERS IN THIS WORLD ARE PROFOUNDLY AFFECTED BY HIS "GOODNESS."

AND SO, JIMMY IS ALLOWED TO COOK AGAIN IN THE KITCHEN.

AND IF MY HUSBAND WILL BE SENT BACK TO PRISONOVER A SILLY CUP OF TEA............I CAN'T THINK MUCH OF THIS WORLD...............BUT I DO BELIEVE, THAT "GOODNESS' ALWAYS WINS..................

LET US NOW SAY A PRAYER FOR ALL THOSE IN PRISON, THAT THEY WILL BE REFORMED AND CHANGED SOMEHOW, THROUGH THEIR INCARCERATION..............

ALSO, LET US SAY A SPECIAL PRAYER FOR ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE 'WORKING"  WITHIN THE PRISON SYSTEM..........IT IS A HARD JOB TO DO, AND THEY ARE UNDER THE STRESSES OF LIFE.....MAY GOD BLESS THEM ALL, AND GUIDE THEM AT ALL TIMES TO DO THE RIGHT THING............WE ESPECIALLY NEED THEM TO HELP KEEP ORDER, AND PROPER CONTROL IN THIS WORLD OF OURS...............................................FRAN

Prison is a hard place to be; harder to work in. Many in my family were Highway Patrol and Sheriff's. One sister worked at a prison so I know what goes on there. Praying for prisoners as well as workers. take care. *Barb*

They should have a sign like most places do that say not to bring food/drink in there...that would be a really stupid reason to threaten/yell at someone....but at least someone was kind enough to stand up for him.

Interesting story. Sounds to me like this Administrator is a little "swell headed" at his position and the fact that he holds himself over so many guys who have no alternatives but, to take it. It will all be over soon. regards, Bill.

That's to bad that Jimmy had to run into someone with that quick attidude and response.  Working in a prison must be a very stressful job.    I'm glad it turned out ok  in the end.   Mr. D.  must be a decent man.             Dawn
