"Get the shallot out of your hair, that's just weird."

My coworker, Heather, was sharing her AMAZING leftovers with another coworker. This lovely gem was exclaimed right after a shallot fell into the other coworker's hair. Oh, the random awesomeness we witness at work...

"If this is what hate tastes like, I want to eat a Westboro Baptist!"

-Aaron Woodall

Aaron is an old friend of mine from when I lived in Maryland. He is now making his way as an awesome comedian. This quote is from a show he did that I got on DVD for Christmas 2014. He was talking about all the folks boycotting Chik-Fil-A because they have a stance about homosexuality and when he eats there, he has been asked things like, "So, what does hate taste like?"

"I want a different dentist; they're all Japanese! The Japanese are building a bomb to drop on Alaska.... They're all Japanese, those people. I want a different dentist!"

The client from the meeting mentioned below said this before having to leave her meeting.  Oh how I wish I could crawl in some of our clients' minds for just a short moment to see what's really going on up there.  

I had to hide my astonished and humored facial expressions until she left the room.  Then I politely busted up in very subdued laughter.  Come on, I'm only human.  Nobody complained.


I was in another client meeting yesterday that involved an entire treatment team.  The client lasted all of 10 minutes and then was redirected elsewhere outside the office; it was a 2 hour meeting.  Keep in mind that I work mostly with mentally ill adults; this happens more frequently than I wish.

The public appointed guardian was participating by speaker phone and the rest of us were physically there.

The client's case manager said to the team, "She wants a cat".  Immediately and very sternly blasted through the speaker phone was the above statement.

Never thought the word "no" could leave such an impact; it was scary and admittedly funny all at the same time.

"Only what I draw on paper."

One of the clinicians at work asked a client, "Do you ever see anything other people don't see?" and above is what the client calmly and exactly said in response.  Goosebumps... it gave me goosebumps.

"I don't hear voices... I listen to my CD player, that's the only voices I hear."

As said by one of my clients during a recent meeting.

"I don't want to go back there."

As said by one of my clients in a calm, reflective manner after sharing a little about his 3 years spent in jail; it touched my heart.
