Supervisor: “So why do you want to be a social worker?”
Me: “‘cos you all like, touch people’s lives. Just help them.”
Supervisor: “You have not seen the ugly side yet.”
At house visit #1.
Supervisor: “You eat already?”
Uncle: “No. I everyday just by with one meal. Nobody buy for me. If my children don’t buy for me, it’s okay, never mind.”
:( :( :( I think the uncle is damn nice please. Why did he get such unkind children. But then again, supervisor said that maybe he wasn’t a very good father in the past. Hmm.
I feel that 4 months will go buy in a flash and I have a damn awesome supervisor. 20% do the work he doesn’t want to do, 80% get exposed to what social workers do.
