No good deed goes unpunished

So, I decided to stay with the department and continue on as an indentured servant, right? Since I made that decision, not one but two cases have flared up.

1. On Friday, I was informed that one of my kids was missing, having not been seen for 48 hours since her mother dropped her off at her father’s for a (prohibited) overnight visit.

2. Today, I am told by a confidential informant that one of my star clients has been faking her urine samples for her drug testing for months. This news is basically confirmed by the lab. Great. Wonderful. I am recommending that this child be returned home next freaking week.

I don’t really want to know what is going to happen tomorrow.

  1. Man, did you have a bad childhood or something? Maybe that’s why you’re having all these problems.

    Haha. Joking of course.

    Good luck! Wine and Kindle should help.



  2. OH NO! I’m worried about both kids, but especially the missing one. That is kind of scary. At least you can change your recommendation and keep the second kid safe, right?

    Well, where would all the “fun” (using the word sarcastically) be in your job if you didn’t have obstacles like these to overcome? Just remember that you are working towards making a difference in these kids lives and that’s why you’ll be stuck working there for a while longer now.

    And do what Brad says- drink some wine and distract yourself with other media. 🙂

    Keep us posted on what happens!
