December 24, 1967 - Sunday
Christmas vacation began last
Friday and I've been working everyday since. This will include tomorrow as
well. Ho Ho - Merry Christmas.
I told you about the last
couple we had at work who were arrested for stealing drugs. Well they
hired a new couple who worked for six days until the husband was arrested
for bigamy. He also had a 16 year old daughter and was accused of molesting
her. It's a bit unbelievable but true. These people come to work one
day and the next they're being hauled off by the police. Now Ron and I
have to work the entire vacation without any help.
Before the vacation I spent
about as much time out of school as in. I've been able to fake excuses
but the office is starting to crack down.
December 28, 1967 - Thursday
I had a pretty exciting
Christmas at the vet hospital. Not real fun, but exciting. On
Christmas Eve, Ron and I climbed over the fence to the Culligan water
service next door. Every year they sell Christmas trees so we borrowed
one that hadn't sold. On Christmas day we dragged it inside to the main room
and mounted it in one of the floor drains. We must have had 60 dogs
and cats being boarded so we decorated it with fly swatters, dog toys
and squeaky toys. When Doctor Malone came in to do his rounds he acted
like it wasn't even there. During the next two days we borrowed six more
trees and placed them in every room of the hospital but still couldn't get a
rise out of Malone. On the third day we gave up and threw the trees into San
Out of a two week vacation,
Ron and I have only had two days off. We're kind of fed up with the
place and the Doctors don't seem to appreciate all the work we're doing.
They didn't even say Merry Christmas on Christmas day when we had to come in
at 5 A.M.
A girl started work at the
hospital and according to Bill, she's a lesbian who hangs around with
another homosexual at school. Suddenly Bill seems to be a big expert
on all the sexual behavior going on at school. According to him, two
teachers are queer along with quite a number of students. I know a lot of
the students quite well and this news has kind of shocked me.
In general, along with having
to work during vacations, no time off since last Easter, a bunch of my
co-workers dragged off to jail for drugs and bigamy, now Bill tells me half
my friends are queer. The world doesn't seem to be the place I thought and
I've become pretty disgusted. I feel alone more than ever and I get the idea
that I don't know what's going on around me.
P.S. My grandmother fell and
broke her hip again. My mother is flying out next Saturday..
