Good morning from Florida!

VERO BEACH, Florida – A man who was arrested for trespassing at Filthy’s Bar in Vero Beach was causing a lot of problems for the officer on the way to jail.
Eric Eugene Cotter, of Vero Beach, was issued a trespassing from the bar by police Thursday morning at around 12:50 a.m.
However, Cotter returned to the bar again a few minutes later after Vero Beach police left the scene.
The officer arrested the 38-year-old but then realized Cotter urinated on himself, according to the report.

And then there’s this piece of shit:

A man was arrested after allegedly making his father sit in a seat covered in feces and urine.
According to police in Central Florida, they were called to Scott Winkler’s home, where Winkler was taking care of Jerry Winkler, his father.
Police said they were called to the scene after receiving reports of a sick elderly male.
Once police entered the home, they saw that Jerry was sitting in a chair covered in feces and urine.

    Man, the old guy on the toilet hit a nerve. My alcoholic ex wife left me with her mother who had a stroke. I promised my ex when we got married that I’d take care of her parents when push came to shove and over the decade of our marriage, sometimes it did. It culminated with her having a stroke and of course we took her in. I work from home so it was a lot easier for me to take care of her. YES, people who are dying can become verbally abusive. My Mother-in-law never did with me, but sometimes she’d need to get on the can every 15 minutes. And I had to lift her to put her on the can. I’m not a big dude, but she weighed about 80 pounds wet so it wasn’t that difficult. Sometimes, I would get back issues / arm issues (arthritis) and then I had to limit it to a trip to the can every hour just b/c it was the limit of what I could do. I also had to deal with bathing her and we did 2-3 baths / week. Taking care of the elderly is it’s own reward. Their family are of course grateful and thankful but that’s sincerely not important. Dying is a VERY scary experience even for those of us with strong faith. I don’t care how strong your faith is, when you face death one day you’re going to be hit hard with the prospect of it. The reward in caring for an elderly person is knowing that THEY got a decent hour of death. My Mother-in-law got to watch her grand children growing up a bit, got served meals that SHE wanted to eat, and didn’t have some psychotic relative insisting on shoving a feeding tube down her throat when death starts knocking and the desire to eat diminishes slowly from 800 calories / day down to about 100 calories / day. *I* was the one asking the hospice nurses for advice and I even kept a log of every single gram of food she ate b/c it was freaking me out. After a week’s worth of reassurances from the nurses that losing appetite was a normal part of the dying process I started to believe it and then I saw that not forcing her to eat was the kindest thing we could do. I still offered food about every hour 20 hours / day, got up at 3 am to get her on the toilet when she called for me, etc. The reward is not for the caregiver but for the elderly person who gets someone to hold their hand when they are taking their last breaths. I was lucky to be at her side when she took her last breath and to this day I’m carrying out her final wishes (she left 9.5 acres of land to me and my alcoholic ex wife and I’m paying the legal fees to get that land put in both of our names and I’m using my 50% rights to the property to keep the alcoholic & cocaine addicted ex from selling any portion of it so that our kids will get the land).

    People who do this shit to old people are getting a very special place in Hell.

    Caring for an elderly parent – completely physically disabled, legally blind, with dementia – IS hard work. I know. Without any siblings, shopping, feeding, paying her bills, moving her in a wheelchair in/out of dr offices, empty/sanitize bedside commode porta-potty, home maintenance, banking, legal stuff, etc. I was proud to take care of my mother when my father (Korea vet) died. I was lucky I was out of work at the time. Cause it’s a full-time job.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
