Ain't it Funny?


Ain't it funny how life works? People come into your life, some who you think won't make an impact on you, or who you won't get attached to, but miraculously they do. This became apparent to me when I put in my resignation at work. I work in a Group Home for the Developmentally Disabled and the company is complete shit. I'm going to another company to do the same work but I won't, unfortunately, be working with the same group guys. I didn't think I would get so attached the guys in the house that I work with (8 in all) but oddly enough I am. I am seriously dreading telling them that sunday will be my last day.

It's funny, I started that job wanting to have a job that will work well with my major, get a little experience, and try a different change of pace but I didn't think I would have so much fun working there. Through all the physical fights, arguments, whining, and complaining (damn it kinda sounds like a horrible place to work doesn't it?) I love working there. I don't know why I got so attached. I guess just seeing the progress that they have made with me since my first day gave me a since of accomplishment and a reason to be there.

Just last week, one of the guys who I didn't think gave two shits about me said that he likes me, that I'm a cool staff, and he doesn't want me to leave. I was kinda.. well not kinda... I was shocked. Very shocked because he usually comes to me to complain and when I try to rationalize he tries to argue with me (I mean neck-rolling, snappin fingers, the works!)ha ha it's pretty funny. They're the greatest group of people I've ever meet. But they're great and I'm gonna miss them dearly. Ain't it funny?

My first time here... and I like you My brother has been in group homes. Unfortunately, not everyone cares and has the heart you express here. I know that my brother gets pretty attached to the people who care about him in an honest way. They will miss you. I understand the need to move on... but you must have a wonderful heart. There is much to be proud of in what you have said here. Good luck.
