Being A Senior Does Not Give You Seniority

, , , | Right | May 1, 2019

(I work at a senior assisted living home. We have a schedule for our residents every day, with certain events at certain times.)

Resident: “So, is [event] at the front desk, then?”

Me: “It’s in the front lobby, at 9:30, near the front desk.”

Resident: “So, it’s now, then? Everybody’s ready.”

(No one else is around.)

Me: *looks up at the huge clock behind desk* “No, it’s only twenty after eight. You have an hour and ten minutes until it starts! You could go have some coffee in the dining room or—“

Resident: *cuts me off* “No, we’re ready now.”

Me: “That’s great, but it doesn’t start for an hour and ten minutes yet.”

Resident: “Well, it should start now, because we’re ready.”

(She continued on that way for a good ten minutes. It’s great that you’re excited for the event, but entitled much?! And no one else ever did show up to be part of the “we” that was supposedly ready.)
