Am I On Candid Camera?

Nursing Home staff

Nursing Home staff

Is this a test?


Testing, testing, 1-2-3


Oh this is not a test?


This is real life?


You mean professionals


Really can be rude and obnoxious?


I didn’t know that…….


I thought in the Medical Field


People took an oath to treat


Others as they would


Like to be treated


To give the utmost respect


To have a compassionate heart


You mean this doesn’t happen everywhere?


I wonder how many others


Didn’t know as I did not


This is really a joke right?


Am I on Candid Camera?


Where is the hidden camera?


Did I pass? Can I be on the show?


Tears are falling from my eyes


Can you see them Administrator?


You have hurt my feelings


You have treated my blood brother


As though he were nothing special


Don’t you see how badly this hurts?


Can you not see my heart bleeding?


Spilling red onto your whitey-white shoes


Please understand one simple thing


I have been with him for 56 years


You have been with him 4 months


I know him better


I know what hurts him


What causes him pain


Please do me and yourself a favor


Go back to the school you came from


Go back to where it teaches


Etiquette and patient care


Take a second look at him


He is my brother, I am his sister……….

Liebster Blog Award

Aneesa nominated me for the beautiful award and also her mate, Faraaz.

This is a fantastic blog! Here is part of what each one says about themselves.


About me… Well I like to talk, to cook and to dine with others. I laugh too loudly (and sometimes inappropriately…) I like to eat peanut butter out of the jar with a teaspoon and I like sleeping with the covers over my head.  I am good at keeping secrets but bad at pretending to get on with people who I just don’t like. I love to drive, only if I have nowhere to go. I love kids (although I suspect they don’t feel the same way about me…)


I’m a man. People ask me about cars, computers, gadgets, sports, martial arts and  anime. Those questions I can answer. Questions about me? Not so sure I know what to say. I started off as an architect, in the bustling metropolis of Johannesburg, South Africa. How I ended up teaching English in Korea is a mystery.

Please go to their website to read even more !!!!
