A tale from my past work history…..all names have been changed to protect privacy

alphabets-bear-2-864032I honestly do not remember any names to tell, so I’m really protecting privacy. I used to work for a local mental-health agency. I was part of the walk-in crisis team.

alphabets-bear-2-864032One bright sunny day, a woman walked in the front door, walked up to the desk an proceeded to take every stitch of her clothing off. Next she picked up a half-gallon container she had brought with her and proceeded to pour it all over herself and the front desk. She pulled a lighter from somewhere and lit it. She stated’ they are following me and if you do not get my some help, I’m gonna take you up with me.’

alphabets-bear-2-864032I walked over to the young woman, leaned in and blew her lighter out. I took it away from her, as well as the jug of liquid. I suggested to the woman to have a seat, I’d get yo her as quick ad I could. Needless to say, she was next.
