Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “luck.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!
There is a saying that: If it weren’t for bad luck I would have no luck at all and that seems to sum up my life nicely. Just recently I have dealt with an agency that provides home health aides. For almost 3 months now I have put up with either no aide, nasty aides, stupid excuses as to why the aide didn’t come, etc. I am entitled to an aide for 20 hours a week and I am lucky if one shows up for an hour and nothing gets done. I am disabled. I can’t bathe or dress myself. I can’t do laundry or clean the house. I get my groceries delivered. So I don’t get bathed, I struggle into clothes and my apartment is filthy and that is not how it is supposed to be, but all I get is excuses from this agency and I know if I didn’t show up to work several days a week and told them I had a family emergency every day I would be fired from any job I had. This agency cares more about their employees than their clients.
I hope I have better luck with an assisted living facility than I have had with this agency. There are a lot of people for every opening so luck is a part of it. I have to wait and see what happens there. I am impatient and nervous as hell.
