Sounds a bit like my uncle in fact – spent years (decades) as a Securicor driver/general security guard, putting up with more and more crap until one day he finally left and got a job helping at a local disabled school – a lot of which was driving the minibus. He loves it, loves the kids, and hasn’t been held up by a smackhead with a syringe in ages 😀
I won’t miss that crap that’s for sure!
I haven’t been held up at syringepoint but I’ve been threatened/approached with a hefty metal tube (baton came out) & had a telly launched at me from a landing above. Plus the daily barrage of personal abuse of course!
& I’ve been lucky compared to a lot of HMP staff.
Dunno what it’s like in prison service but everyone assumed you would back down at the last minute when I played the family card on a very important family funeral and had to come back from foreign climes leaving company in a sticky situation.
Only you and yours have your back be sure you have theirs.
Well done for seeing it through and not being one of the spineless.
She didn’t have a stoma straight after the initial operation, that was done on the 2nd op (3 days after the 1st) due to the join in the bowel giving way & peritonitis/sepsis/whatever it was taking hold. Then it was found her gall bladder had ruptured, causing a different infection again! So she had a 3rd operation to clean that out, 7 days after the 2nd one! Lordy my, what a **** year.
Anyway, if any old folk come at me with a full colostomy bag, I’ll be ready! 😆
(at least I’d be a good help in changing it for a new one)
