This is nothing! Every single day that I work, I'm told a thousand times worse by my geriatric patients and some of them like to hit and throw things! You get used to it and learn how to handle them. There's some very sweet ones that will surprise you! Also, watch out for the pervy old men... I can't count the times I've been groped!
I share your pain. I have been knocked out, hospitalised on occasion and left bleeding and bruised daily. All for minimum wage. I work with vulnerable adults and children although previously with the elderly. I have been reduced to tears as a ninety year old frail women developed the grip of a MMA fighter and grabbed me on the inner thigh. It took two grown men to unpeel her vice like grip on my leg. I had bruises for weeks.
I thought that was going to go in a totally different direction but I guess it would only go in that direction if she were a guy. I just need to get my mind out of the gutter. Shake out the filth. Yep.
sweet and innocent. if there's one thing I've learnt its that old ladies are always the worst. they never want to learn anything and are always too full of themself.
