Sometimes people are insane and you have to know how to talk to them nicely and calm them down

“My dad named me Hamlet because he read a lot of Shakespeare. I have worked as a security guard for 25 years. I am lucky to work in an area that has no problems. Sometimes people are insane and you have to know how to talk to them nicely and know how to calm them down. Everyone calls me Daddy. Today the world has changed and drugs dominate the world. My wife is sick and needs a kidney because hers has failed. She goes to the hospital three times a week. I am from British Gianna and want to go home, but we can’t leave because we have medical service for her here. I finish work and go home and take care of her. I grew up with 8 sisters and a brother and I got married young so I never learned how to cook. Now my wife who used to cook can’t cook so now go to the store and cook for her.”

“Are you a good cook?”

“Not really. I forget certain things but I get her everything she needs. I take her to the hospital and she takes the bus home. You are looking at a poor man. I live paycheck to paycheck. If that paycheck doesn’t come, you know what happens. Minimum wage here is $7 an hour and my small one bedroom house is $450 per month. The cost of food keeps going up and my salary is not moving. How do you live to the next month? But you have to. I used to work 12 hours a day with overtime but they tax so much of that. I am getting older and I can’t kill myself because I have to take care of my wife. Rules, regulations, and laws aren’t fair. Money talks and bullshit walks, and the poor people are at the bottom. What is important is how you are living.”

    This man has it tough. It is sad in many ways, he wants to go home but can’t. He doesn’t know how to cook, but he must. Still he has his head on straight …”What is important is how you are living.” I agree. May life get better for you soon.
