Looks can fool you.

If there is one thing I have learned from this job,it is NEVER let looks fool you.
There was one resident who when you would look at her appeared to be one of the most gentle kind hearted old grandma type ladies. Wrong!!!
Now do not get me wrong she could be so nice and fun.Her daughter had once told me in her day she was a very classy high society women.Always wore dresses and white gloves when she went out.
However over the years some of her sweet nature seemed to have been taken over by a rather unappealing nature.
When upset she would pinch and try spitting on you. At 100years old we were lucky her saliva glads were not working as well as years before.We would just say OHHHH, are you trying to blow me a kiss.I remember one particular day when she was being a real stinker and giving the gal who was bathing her a very hard time.This coworker called for help and being the knight in shinning armor I am to all my female coworker (whoo that bolt of lightning just missed me). Let me rephrase that,being a helpful coworker, (there that's better) I went to help.
Thinking I will just turn on the ole Brian charm and things will be OK, I went into action. With my kindest voice and flashing a huge smile I said whats the matter honey and gave her a kiss on the cheek.Thinking what lady could not be smitten by my actions I thought I would have her melting in my arms.WAS I EVER WRONG!!!!! She glared at me and said You darn fool if you think that is going to work you are wrong. Imagine my shock when she said that. Now granted to say I an no George Clooney but I was sure this lady would have softened up some.That was about 4 months after I started the job. I still try schmoozing my way with the old ladies some days it works other day it does not,you just never know.
Stay tuned there are many more Brian the women schmoozer stories yet to come.
