December Rush

December is here, the busiest time of year for many. Those of us working in social services are certainly not exempt (it’s not as bad now as when I was working for the Salvation Army, but that’s a story for another day) so what a time for by Blackberry calendar to stop synching properly!

I’ve already been double booked once due to this technological fail, and as a result had to beg on hands and knees to get a taxi approved for my client so she can go to the food bank before Christmas.

Only 15 days until vacation…


  1. You used to work for SA? I put a FB status update about those bell ringers just yesterday. They judge you when you don't put money in the till.

  2. Yup. I was at one of their women's shelters though, so no bell ringing for me.
    My daughter always wants to put money in their pots, so I usually give her a few coins. So we get the "isn't that cute!" look instead of the judgemental stares.
