A Bit Of A Rant [Sep. 4th, 2005|10:42 am]
Tony Grist
This person was put in place as a volunteer carer- to offer Ailz companionship and give me space to gad off on my own- but she never shows up without requests for favours. She gives us nothing- and certainly not the service we thought she was offering- and takes all she can.

She got Ailz to fix her computer (it took hours and hours). She got Ailz to type up her dissertation- it turned out to need editing and rewriting as well.

And when she talks, she talks about herself and herself and herself. Justifying herself, praising herself. We're good listeners, but this tape is on a loop...

I feel a deep sense of anger and betrayal.

Then she rings to request (actually more like demand) that we place bids on eBay for her. I tell her Ailz is feeling really rough. She goes on pestering.

In the morning her teenage son rings and pesters some more. Bid on these shoes for me. Up to £20.

And whose pocket is that £20 coming out of? When will it be repaid?

We've had it. That's enough. We tell her supervisor to pull her off our case.

She rings but I'm not answering the phone. If I did I would shout.

We did have an earlier run in with her- and the supervisor was involved and we talked it through and we thought we'd give her a second chance.

In some ways I'm glad we did. If we'd cut all links then I'd always have been unsure whether we'd done the right thing, whereas now I'm sure.

Yes, that was the right thing to do, I believe, but I sure hope you and your dear lady get somebody MUCH better and more compatible next time.

The supervisor has said she'll look for someone else. I guess I'm in favour, but "once bitten, twice shy."
