It's not for mental illness it's for hungry people. :O And sorry but I feel sorta creeped out when these forty year old men call me things like sweetie pie, or cutie, or sweet thang, I know a lot of them don't know better but still gives me the willies. :/ I've never reported anyone I just sorta ignore it as best as I can. :/
Well it seems a large population of homeless/poverty people are suffering from mental illness. It's why they're in such dire circumstances (either, they can't get work for their behaviour or simply cannot comprehend work instruction) Soup kitchens in my experience are usually taken advantage of by people who suffer mental illness of varying degrees and types.
It would nonetheless be quite uncomfortable to be accosted as such. But what you are doing is valuable and ethical and moral and I envy you (only because our soup kitchen is opened M-F during times I'm in school)
Yea! I'm not gonna be scared away by them. :/ It is pretty sad. I always feel bad when I don't understand what someone is saying to me there, whether it's bad speech since some of them can barely talk, or sometimes it's just gibberish and I really don't know what to say. :/ I need better skills at this.
ON ANOTHER NOTE... that guy that was creeping my friend.. today he sat in front of us today, and put a note (we can only assume it's another love letter!) on the edge of her desk.. I passed her a note saying "whatever you do, don't take it don't touch it don't read it!"
After about 20 minutes he took it back.. tried again... she didn't take it..
Near the end of class, he throws it over his back, it hits her. Then he turns around and stares at her..
Oh my god, my friend stood up, threw it back at him, and was like "I DONT WANT THIS!"
o-o What a day.
