More on the social worker

This social worker needs a name. "Dumb Social Worker Lady"? Too unwieldy? Let's just call her Wilma. No offense intended to anyone actually named Wilma.

Wilma dropped Sabrina off after her visit with mom, just about 20 minutes ago. Now, I will be the first to admit that when I have lost patience, I have said some things in Sabrina's earshot that I shouldn't have said. But Wilma said the following to me, in Sabrina's presence, and I think that She Should Know Better: "Is this your first? Well, I hope this doesn't discourage you from taking other children."

(True, she didn't use Sabrina's name, and maybe it was too abstract for Sabrina to get the drift, but she's a smart cookie and Wilma should not have said it in front of her.)

Rant over. For now.
