PLEASE don't do it! - page 5

Hi fellow correctional nurse's. I'm having a hard time convincing a coworker of mine to stop making contact with an inmate. I've tried to explain to her that they can be manipulative and that she can... Read More

    Prisonpenpal.net and prisonpenpals.org actually...lol. I saw this on a talk show once and had to see if for myself.

    :spin:
    OK, I had to go on this website to see it with my own two eyes.

    After reading some of the profiles I felt like I was at work. There was a lot of:

    "I have been convicted of a crime I didn't commit with absolutely no evidence" REEEEEALY

    "I did this when I was young and stupid and now I have changed" Murder? what?


    Geez. I can't believe some people fall for this.

    It also amazes me how many are asking for "real people" "no games".

    I also had to quote this one bc I nearly died laughing reading it:

    "I'm a man with the most highest pedigree."
    and at the end he says " I have little over 2 years, and I'll be free. I have a non violent bank robbery. Totally rehabilitated."

    I guess this is why I enjoy my job, being constantly entertained by the things that come out of the i/m's mouths

    AMEN!! to the things that come out of IM mouths. I can't COUNT the # of IM who arrive at the cell door, shaking, crying, "You can't put me in there with them, I'm INNOCENT!!!!" My standard reply? "Gentlemen in the tank!! Can I have a show of hands?? How many of you are innocent?? (22 out of 24 hands go up) "see, you ARE in the right place--they're innocent, too"

    Wow, what an eye-opener this thread is...I would have thought the kind of woman that would be stupid enough to fall into this, would be too flaky, dim-witted or emotionally unstable to become a nurse to begin with.

    The obvious theme here is that this NEVER ends well. Has anyone ever seen anyone marry or continue a relationship after she's fired and they live happily ever after? I'll eat my hat.
    Actually I have. I know a nurse that married an inmate after he was released. He had trouble finding decent paying jobs but he was very diligent. He was also frustrated. He worked a day labor place at this company and they liked him so much that the permament guys spoke highly to their boss and they hired him. It's a pretty good job and they have been together 7 years now (happily) and this is a guy who was in and out of prison for almost 10 years. But I tried to tell my friend that this is not the norm nor is it a standard.

    Well CST wannabe like I said it's not the norm. These relationships mostly end in a hot mess moreso for the nurse involved. I always tell newbies not to do this because it's not worth it.
