Crashed13.....well I sure hope your life is all sunshine and roses!!!

Christina216.....Sorry to read of your Uncle's condition, but glad that he is in a place that understands and helps him in his day to day life.
Me myself and took the words right out of my mouth!!! Thank you!!!

To others who may want to post comments like the first two............Walk a mile in someone else's shoes and think before you speak!! Your perfect lives may end up in turmoil one day and you may require the help of professionals too!!

Today they call it mental illness, but back in the day, we called it PMS - I just think it was that time of the month and her worker just pissed her off, lol

I hope the judge who holds her fate remembers this...

I work in support field--i would never charge a client unless it was majorly serious. (you gotta expect this kind of thing in this field)

Wobbler you best be careful up their on that lofty Perch.

We sure wouldn't want to lose someone who can straighten us all out .

There are other sorts of group homes in this City besides CLA etc.

This client was already on probation,seems more like a detox or some such place.

As someone stated it would be a very rare thing for a resident in a group home , for mentally challenged to ever have charges brought against them by staff.

from what I recall; years ago the government cut funding on places like Riverview in the Sault and turned the people out in the street. It's all about money. All over Canada I understand that most of the homeless have mental issues.I guess it's more important to the powers that be to give our tax money to third world countries. Shouldn't charity begin in our back yard?

Wobbler... nice try, but too many people will offer comments on topics they know little about.
Dead End Kid 3/5/2014 11:53:49 AM Report

Wobbler you should change your name to god.
Powerwise 3/5/2014 1:13:08 PM Report

Oh my! Oh my! Screenname " WOBBLER "

I am wondering about your apparent MOTIVATION for claiming unfriendly CONDUCT?

SooBuddy 3/5/2014 1:35:36 PM Report

I know of the home mentioned, She is a troubled adult. They try their hardest but sometimes it’s too much.
I feel for her and the workers at the same time.
Maybe in some commenter’s situation it’s not PMS it’s just your stupidity that causes the issue.
Oh and please respond with your wittiness and your ever knowing wisdum.
Keep in mind any reply will be timed in accordance with your I.Q.
