I'll Miss You Unnamed Resident

Why is it all the good ones who move away or die?

I'm left with the one, who waits until the last minute to go to dinner to yell at the kitchen staff about wanting to go home.

Or with the ones who think I'm here to serve them tea all shift long.

Or with the one who picks up a pastry eats half of it and then runs his chocolate stained hands across the wall.

I'll miss you sweetest resident I've ever met.  You provided me with great stories of your life and you gave me compliments whenever I was feeling sad or feeling like quitting, which really is whenever I get here.

----On another note a home care health aide stopped by, she can't find her resident, she just came by the desk.  I resisted the urge to ask, what the hell were you doing for a half hour?
