Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
I am going back to work after a week off.
Most of this time, I was ill, but now I am feeling better and able to clock in at the prison. Life can be that way.
I was mildly productive, but the most important thing is time was spent with my family.
In other news, I have been trying to be a local community resource. Like prison, if folks are unable to twist your arm to your will, they can become a little squirrely.
For instance, this user wanted me to adjust a birthday post about my daughter. She was persistent about it and wouldn’t go away. I told her to find something happy to do.
I may be a hypocrite. Not sure. I have never said I was a “nice guy.” I will be helpful, but I will also set clear boundaries and expectations.
In helpfulness, sometimes creepers come around. I was helping a young lady find local resources for some serious concerns and a man demanded that I give him her number. When I refused, he threatened to kill me.
I did online homework immediately and to his surprise found his personal information and private messaged it. He quickly apologized.
So, in mirthfulness, I made a spaghetti western style clip about it.
It is still being looked into, but it made me pretty angry. I am over it now.
Before the year is over, I will find better ways to be a community resource. This way just isn’t worth it.
