Today, I was working my shift at our local nursing home. I was assisting a "sweet", "innocent" 100-year-old lady, and she had a bunch of used tissues balled up in her lap, so I offered to dispose of them in the waste-basket. She told me that if I touched them, she would kill everything I love. FML

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.

Well hey, not touching the tissues sounds a whole lot nicer than touching them. Maybe she exerted her aggression to spare you from the grossness of the tissues? Or maybe she has a weird tissue fetish, who knows?

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.

My grandmother just dragged me, the adopted grandchild who has vomited several times today, out of my warm bed to give her a bath so she didn't inconvenience the full-blood grandchild who lives with her. I'm the only grandchild treated like a servant.

I know that feel, work in a nursing home myself. she probably thought the used napkins had significant meaning to her, in her mind. fyl but I love when senile old people snap like that.
