NOT THIS WEEK

JIMMY COULDN'T COME HOME THIS WEEK.  AS PER KINTOCK, THE HALF-WAY HOUSE, HE IS NOW ALLOWED TO COME HOME EVERYWEEK...BUT NOW, ACCORDING TO HIS JOB, HE COULDN'T GET A DAY OFF THIS WEEK....WELL, I GUESS WE JUST DON'T WIN IN LIFE....SOMETHING OR OTHER IS ALWAYS HAPPENING IN THE FOODSTORE WJERE JIMMY WORKS AS ASSISTANT MANAGER...HE HAS A GREAT RESPONSIBLITY THERE....PEOPLE WALK OFF THE JOB, OR JUST PLAIN QUIT, FOR NO REASON...AND JIMMY HAS TO COVER THE STORE WHEN THESE SORT OF THINGS HAPPEN, UNEXPECTEDLY...SO OF COURSE, TODAY I SAID TO JIMMY..."AND NOW YOU ARE MARRIED TO YOUR JOB."...WELL, HE DIDN'T LIKE ME SAYING THAT AT ALL..........AND SO. I JUST SIT HERE...BORED...AND GO ON WITH LIFE....DOING THE ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING,,,TALKING TO JIMMY ON THE PHONE...AND WELL, SURVIVING, I GUESS..............AS FOR THOSE PEOPLE IN HIS STORE, WHO JUST WALK OFF THE JOB, AS IF IT IS  NOTHING...WELL, LET ME TELL YOU, WITH THAT ATTITUDE AND APPROACH TO LIFE, THEY WILL NEVER PROGRESS....NO MATTER WHAT JOB ONE HAS, HE SHOULD TAKE PRIDE IN THAT JOB.........WHEN YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL, AS I HAVE BEEN MY WHOLE LIFE, YOU JUST CAN'T GET UP AND WALK OFF THE JOB...YOU HAVE RESPONSIBILITY, AND AS AN RN, YOU COULD  LOSE YOUR LICENSE, (FOR ABANDONEMENT OF PATIENTS),  AND YOU SHOULD HAVE SOME SORT OF WORK ETHIC ENGRAVED IN YOU, ANYHOW....MAYBE THAT'S WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD TODAY...NOBODY CARES FOR THEIR JOB...WELL, ONE SHOULD HAVE SOME SORT OF PRIDE AND HAPPINESS WHEN WORKING........WITH MY HUSBAND, THEY CALL HIM IN ON HIS DAY OFF, AND HE DROPS EVERYTHING, AND GOES RUNNING....JIMMY IS JUST MADE FOR A MANAGERIAL POSITION, AND THAT IS HIS STRENGTH........AND HE RUNS HIS STORE LIKE A SHIP........

JIMMY TOLD ME THESE FEW STORIES THE OTHER DAY, AND I'D LIKE TO SHARE THEM WITH YOU......

A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO, A MAN CAME INTO THE STORE AND WANTED TO RETURN SEVERAL PACKAGES OF FROZEN FISH, AND GET HIS MONEY BACK......THE PACKAGES WERE ALL UNFROZEN, AND THE BOXES DISHEVELED......THE MAN APPARENTLY WAS HIGH OR DRUNK, OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.......WHEN JIMMY REFUSED TO ACCEPT THEM BACK, THIS MAN THREW THE PACKAGES AT JIMMY'S HEAD..........WELL JIMMY PICKED UP THE PHONE, AND CALLED THE POLICE......THE POLICE CAME, HAND-CUFFED THIS INDIVIDUAL AND TOOK HIM AWAY........

THE FOODSTORE IN WHICH JIMMY WORKS IS A LARGE STORE, LOCATED IN THE HEART OF ATLANTIC CITY...THERE IS CRIME ALL AROUND, AS YOU CAN WELL IMAGINE......SO, THE NEXT DAY, THIS INCIDENT OCCURRED........A SLENDER, WELL-SHAPED WOMAN, WITH LONG BLOND HAIR COMES UP TO JIMMY, AS JIMMY IS STANDING OUTSDE THE STORE...SHE GIVES HIM SOME SOB STORY, ASKING HIM FOR MONEY...JIMMY REFUSES, TELLING HER, TO PLEASE GET OFF THE STORE'S PROPERTY....HE WENT INSIDE, AND LATER CAME BACK OUT...THERE WEE 4 OTHER WOMAN WITH HJER...THEY WERE ALL ASKING PEOPLE FOR MONEY...HE ASKED THEM TO LEAVE..THEY STARTED CALLING HIM NAMES....HE SAID I AM GOING TO CALL THE POLICE...SCARED, THEY RAN TO A BEAUTIFUL NEW SUV, DRIVEN BY THE ORIGINAL GIRL WITH LING BLONDE HAIR....THEY GOT IN., AND DROVE AWAY...I ASKED JIMMY IF HE CALLED THE POLICE...HE SAID NO...

TODAY'S LATEST STORY IS THIS....JIMMY'S BOSS HAD AN INDIFFERENCE WITH THE BOOK KEEPER...SHE LEFT THE JOB..AND WALKED AWAY..ANGRY.  A LITTLE WHILE LATER, THIS WOMAN'S BOYFRIEND, COMES TO THE STORE, AND WALKS OVER TO JIMMY, THINKING HE WAS THE ONE WHO HAD THE ARGUEMENT WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND...THE STORE SECURITY MEN RAN OVER TO JIMMY...AND HELD HIM BACK..SAYING  HE HAD THE WRONG PERSON............ JIMMY IS A BIG, MUSCULAR MAN, AND THE STORES SECURITY MEN ARE, TOO...AT NIGHT, WHEN JIMMY WALKS TO THE BUS STATION, THE SECURITY MEN WALK HIM THERE............

WELL, THIS IS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT.........AND AS FOR ME, WELL...LIFE GOES ON....................FRAN

Sorry you didn't get to see him and that is pretty crappy that his work puts him in those situations.
