Daily Prompt: Stubborn

Stubborn.

It was early morning and we needed to bee out the door in a specific time to make it to the Train station. Not many days we manage to do that, but today it was very special for us, when I say us I mean my little one and I.

Kids in a certain age can drive you up the wall at the best of time and this morning was one of them. It started off with a late night visit to the Hospital due to a sprained ankle my daughter received in kindergarten the day before and had coursed her a lot off grief doing the day.

I start early every day to be able to manage our day, that mean breakfast is a trail for the rest of the day, a stubborn kid does not go well and an ankle that hurt   make it even worse.for our start .

We manage to get to that special meeting, after all.

 

First Jail time.

Been in a Correction Center with lots of other strange looking people is very intimidating for any person that is a first offender of any crime,” you don’t have to be a murder to be in a place like a Correction Center, just a jonky can end up in there”. The look you get when you first step inside that place is scary from inmates that look at you as a future investment that’s the way the system works in here, they are all looking for a friend to use for they own survival as long as possible.
To bee alone is a terrible thing that can torture your brain and telling you that you are no good and that again can make things worse because you need that comfort to be able to survive this, you need that contact or feeling that you belong or somebody really care for you, but who can you trust in here we are all criminals. Who take the first step or eye contact.
The Correction Officer take you into a room where you have to shower and get other clothes so you look like the rest, we then go to the Center and it looks like a beehive where the inmates have been put into small cubical’s with bunks and a little space for your belonging. The first optical is where can I sleep and you have to negotiate and plead to get a place to call yours to lay your head down for the next many Month.
The first day is like a nightmare and things do not get any better, for breakfast you need to find a place to sit and eat and that part are more difficult than flying to the Moon, wherever you try to sit the seat is taken for som unknown reason, finally some person let you have a seat next to them and you gratefully accept the offer, I look at my trade of what is called breakfast and regretted I even got it, some foul smelling Oatmeal and a piece bread that looks like it has been attacked by a maggot and some funny looking butter that have the resemblance with an old cheese. My stomach turn over and I feel I have to be sick but luckily it stay down. I stand up and get told by a guard to sit again. To my surprise, everybody is eating peacefully this stuff they call breakfast.
After that first experience what was called breakfast the group are sorted out into working parties that have to join the rest of workers in different places to be rehabilitated, or more like it working for peanuts to make pocket money. One group go to the kitchen where jobs are sorted out and because you are the last in you get the worst job from that day and forth to you move up in the ranks of ass kissing inmate,” you look after my back and I am looking after yours”. Other groups are places where they are needed, the Laundry that is a busy place takes many more and here again you need to work your way up the latter of inmate that like to lean on you just to show you whom the is boss, that is the system in here and try to change it “I say good luck with that”
People in here are entrepreneurs in any way you can think off, contraband is a commodity and highly profitable for those who have and costly for those who haven’t. I owe you is common used and can all so be used as a thread or payment for a favor you got early on.
Days are very long in here people get restless and the feeling of not been able to see family or friends is starting to take its toll, you start to explore who could be a friend and forget where you are for a minute, but get a rude awakening by somebody that gets a beaten for not paying back on time because that’s the system in here.
In a place like this you always get people that are a bit weird and spaced out like they are on steroids talking to them selfs all day long and yes here are people that think they are good and don’t understand why there are here and let everybody know why, of course, we all got different idea about what you can and can not do in reality, but that is not in their vocabulary either.
Sleeping amongst strange people is not a thing I would recommend by a long shot, and sleeping together with criminals my self-included is a long shot for my liking. No one here are locked up so people tend to wander around in the night and looking for stuff, what kind of stuff I am not sure and nobody talks so you start to guessing what they are looking for, and that again makes your sleep very short, and suddenly it is time to get up and face another long day.
I am making my way into the washing facilities and find my self-standing in a row of half naked people waiting for my turn and to my surprise I find out the hot water is running out fast, when I finally get to the shower the water is cold, another lesson for me to learn “get here first next time” after a fast cold wash I get back to my bunk freezing all over and a lot of dirty looks from those who had hot water. Another day and one more lesson my way.
Breakfast is a repeat from yesterday, no better or worse I get a chair and I just sit there in my own little world totally lost, how am I going to get true this, the bed socks the shower socks the food is no better. No point been Phil Sof cult about it, life just sock and I deserve to be here but does it have to be like this all the time.
Suddenly I hear a voice saying ” what are you in here for ” I nearly jump out of my skin not expecting this and look to my left, I confront the person next to me and explain why I am here in a few words, and gets his version of the crime he did. He only took somebody else’s money and ran off whit it, but got court few days after trying again somewhere different, most be his lucky day. Life can be difficult if you like to be on the wrong side of the Law, it doesn’t get any better if you don’t learn from your mistake so you don’t get court again.
He then tells me where he comes from and I do the same out of courtesy. We finish the slimy Oatmeal and dump the rest in the food bin provided for trash, and make our different ways back to a designated place for work. Suddenly I get an all bow in my ribcage and a stern voice tells me I need to hurry up because something is going to happen very soon at this place where I am standing. Out of the blue two inmates confronts each other and a dirty fight starts taking place, kicking and pulling hair is the main target and soon blood is flowing from the two contenders faces. I whisper to the person next to me what the reason for the fight is all about, and get told to main my own business.
Things like fight go on constantly from disgruntled individual parties around the Correction Center all day long due to short fuses and power struggle, or simply for something to do if you are not a full box of chocolate and there a few of them around in here. Life inside is not always bad there are few things you can do to refresh your brain with, there is a library where you can spend time if you are that inclined and there is the meeting place where you can join in and comment about the State of the establishment in general, not sure if it helps.
This place got their fair share of Ethnic groups that a more wholetail than others and are very hostile when it com to tutorial rights and spend most of they time telling other inmates where to go and that can course a huge amount of anger, it is bad for everybody in here.
When you look like a nerd in a place like this you have a very good chance that somebody don’t like your looks and start to pick on you for the same reason, words get said you get knocked around and it doesn’t matter how bad people are there will always bee somebody that take your side but it com whit a hefty price that most be paid in full for it to work.
Some inmates make friends fast another take longer time to gel, the ones that make friends fast are the one that needs a friend for protection or for company further on all depends on off they sentence in here and need “as they say in here use the system or go and hang yourself there are two ways about it”.
If you are on the receiving end of it be smart, ve are not all built like a shit brick house, so you take advantage of the situation and talk to a person for protection if that is needed and negotiate a prize that suits that purpose. Sometimes that negotiating is not working out and you have to find another person for that job. In the meantime, you try to make your self-invisible and not to provoke any confrontations to often.
It looks like the ones with the longest sentences are the on that are most nasty and devious in nature and it shows in their attitude to everything they do or touch, they sounds like cages animals and take it out on inmate they can get hold on and put them in grave danger to be taken to the Infirmary for broken arms and another injury.
Life in here is a Correction of people that can not fit into a normal lifestyle outside and need to be corrected in a way so they can go back into a lifestyle that fit in whit the rest, but it looks like it could take longer for some to take control over the life they live and the life they could be living , because they are back soon after they have been released, and they are the hardcore of people in here that makes it difficult for others that just like to be left alone.
Months go by and you are looking forward to your release that can not come too soon, the weekend is a highlight for family to com and see how you are doing and tell you all about the life that did not stand still because you had to do time inside. Families fall apart because of this and life is more difficult for a solo mother or father to look after the kids, and they look for comfort or help what in many situations turn into another disaster and misery.
For some people whit a sentence on they record it can be very hard to go back into the community because they feel unsafe or insecure about life and what people think about them and to make matters worse you got mates that like to involve you in som shady business when you get out.

#PC /Staphylococcal.

The keyboard on your smartphone hides much unpleasant demise that in time will make you sick especial in the winter month. I am not talking about washing it under a running tap, but with a new Phone like Samsung or other Phones, it is possible to do.
It is more difficult with a PC and many people like to eat at the same time they do homework what is very bad for your health and for your PC.
To avoid making you sick, clean your PC ones a month with a soft cloth with a small amount of Window cleaner, if you own a small portable dust buster use that first.
Been into one of those Gaming places for a little splash out in a hope of gaining some money back, have you ever seen anybody clean them ever, so my advice would be lay off the machines especial in the winter time.
Internet Cafes has the higher count of Bacteria off them all. Staphylococcus and Pathogenic are rampant.

Smartphone or not smart

We are been exploited by big companies like Android and Apple to buy their brand new cell phone that according to plenty of reviews has not changed that much, so why get one if it does not make your life any better, your Bank account differently does not, it is a rather steep prize for keeping in contact with friends if that is so important to you or is it like the old saying keep your enemy closer still.
Whatever which way you look at id your privacy is lost for good no more you time. At work they can call when you go for lunch is no better going home is the same sad news again out of luck . Teen’s life get ruin because of bullying, pictures got taken and put on the net the wrong people find out and it com’s back to haunt you for a long time.
Texting or calling somebody when you are driving is a lethal cocktail, you get a fine or kill somebody, we just can’t help our self. Selfie is another thing that has taken off in a big way and you can kill yourself doing that.Smart Cellphone promote stupidity in a big way, taking pictures of yourself is a sure way of losing family or friends or maybe work.
Are we become puppets of those Companies ?
A cellphone call can make a good day into a disaster, a picture can turn your life upside down in an instant.
Technology makes the Whole World very small indeed and things can get out of hand fast. Reporters get hold of News or pictures , and we all know bad News are better than no News. It could also make teenagers more resilient to violent and of course adult to, but the impact would make a big different to som people that taken another persons life com to easy to do.
I wonder why the War is still going on in many Countries.

Love /Hate

Reporters from all News Papers are trying they best to keep up with all the bad things that happening around in the World today and especially what pictures concern about dead people that have been murdered in all kinds of ways. Reporters get hold of news and we all know bad news is better than good news, they have a sense of wanting to share all the details and pictures that goes with it, you can not watch TV or read a paper its all there for you to see, does it help the person that got brutally violated or beaten it does not.
It looks like it’s all too easy to take persons life and the criminals get away with it ewery time, they get time in jail and they are back out again doing the same thing. Some kids today don’t know what is right or wrong when they see the penalty that got handed down. We got a society of different people that have been brought up wrongly for many years of abuse and violent right true they childhood and now they are in a situation where abuse is the only thing they know how to use to get what they want.
Mentally scared people does not forget in a hurry and find it hard to relate to other people for help because they think they are not words helping they deserve what it coming to them and they stay in the relationship because they know if they live there is no return and there is nowhere to hide so they are stuck between love and hate, love for the guy they knew and hate for what he has become, loving someone that beat you is hard to do when it happening to often for no reason of yours.
Going to a shelter to bee safe is very devasting and if you are a private person that doesn’t need other people to pry into your private life would put any person of how bad your life is or was. Most women are home builders and dam proud of it so living home is another blow to their self-esteem.

Juvenile/Bootcamp

We are all born with a brain, what we do with it is up to us Einstein was not any different.
Back in childhood kid’s brain are ready to take it all in and learn from it. But some kid’s got parent’s that could not read or write them self and here is where the problem start’s.
The kid’s start going to school and get homework to do by them self and ask the parent’s for answer’s, but the parent could not help so the kid’s tell the teacher, that is too busy to help again they get no answer and become frustrated. In they frustration the kid’s can do nothing and because there is more than one kid with the same problem they got too much time on their hand and we all know what can happen to kid’s they get bored. They probably haven’t got fed and know dinner is long away, so stealing is the best thing to get food and this go’s on for some time and the parent’s are been kept in the dark to the Cops are at the front door asking for the kid.
Research studies on high-risk youth show that a system in which problematic youth are congregated increases the likelihood that youth will learn negative behaviors from one another by reinforcing each other’s deviant behaviors.
People that got nothing end up been looked after by the Government when they are been helped they fall into a mental lazy security mood. They daily routine change from been busy to lazy and the whole attitude to the World is like been on cloud nine.

What I don’t understand people that are doing nothing somehow think they can drive not walking around to lazy for walking make other hardworking people’s life into a miserable nightmare, the tax we pay to keep the criminal alive is a waste of time and money. The Court is too soft, the Lawers got no idea
You can not help people that do not think they got a problem

Juvenile/Rehabilitation

We are all born with a brain, what we do with it is up to us Einstein was not any different.
Back in childhood kid’s brain are ready to take it all in and learn from it. But some kid’s got parent’s that could not read or write them self and here is where the problem start’s.
The kid’s start going to school and get homework to do by them self and ask the parent’s for answer’s, but the parent could not help so the kid’s tell the teacher, that is too busy to help either, again they get no answer and become angry. In they frustration the kid’s can do nothing and because there is more than one kid with the same problem they got too much time on their hand and we all know what can happen to kid’s they get bored. They probably haven’t got fed and know dinner is long away, so stealing is the best thing to get food and this go’s on for some time and the parent’s are been kept in the dark to the Cops are at the front door asking for the kid.
Research studies on high-risk youth show that a system in which problematic youth are congregated increases the likelihood that youth will learn negative behaviors from one another, by reinforcing each other’s deviant behaviors
People that got nothing end up been looked after by the Government. when they are been helped they fall into a mental lazy security mood. They daily routine change from been busy to lazy and the whole attitude to the World is like been on cloud nine.
Conclusion.
What I don’t understand people that are doing nothing somehow think they can drive not walking around to lazy for walking make other hardworking people’s life into a miserable nightmare, the tax we pay to keep those animals alive for many years to com. Rehabilitation is not and answer for some criminals and short -term jail does not work.

You can not help people that do not think they got a problem

Recycling/Trash

All food today are in packaging that can keep for a long time, so long that we have to find a place to get rid of it and that place is normally in our trash what is very wrong. Plastic is the worst thing to decompose because it does not, so why not recycle it. Papers have a great source of uses it can bee made into Insulation, compost for your garden, starting a worm farm worm love paper. Your old glass jars you can take down to your local second-hand shop they will sell or give away. Old cars can bee crushed and reused, cardboard is another thing that can bee recycled. Tyres can bee used for dwelling for people that like living a bit different it is a great way of using all those millions of tyres that are sitting around.Plastic bottles can bee melted down and made into handbags. There are so many uses for recycled material it is just endless. We did not have this problem for many years ago where packaging was different or reused again, it was only when plastic extrusion was introduced to bee used as packaging everything went wrong. Bag then you could get a bread in a paper bag what was ideally the right way even eggs could make the travelling back to your home. I believe The Government have overstepped the idea about cleanliness and that way made it impossible to change the way we use packaging for our food.

Blood, sweat and tears

Excessive sweating
Sweating helps your body stay cool it is perfect natural we sweat more in warm weather than cold. When you exercise you sweat in some situations if you get angry nervous embarrassed or afraid.
Excessive sweating occur without any reason it can affect your hands, feet and armpit, it is called primary or focal Hyperhidrosis.
People that have overactive sweat glands suffer badly of it, emotional and physically.
The good news is it is treatable with injection into the armpit

Cremation/Buried

Back in the history people  died  a much younger age due to hard labor or poor health. Today Pharmaceutical keeps us alive  too long, we are eating too many pills that are slowly killing us the wrong way, when organs stop working properly to produce to much we take pills for it, many pills today have fillers to hold them together and we are getting too much.

Cremation was invented back in the Stone Age where it became the most common method of disposing of bodies. Cemeteries are overfilled with people and more people die and there is no place to bury them soon, cemeteries are a wasteland that can not bee used for anything else. Maybee we could forget religion and start thinking  about the future of the wasteland. Looking at Cremation compared to burial is a better investments in the long run, no headstone just some flowers and no looking after what could make life easy for the remaining family.
