1. Social Worker? you mean you sit behind a desk and input data and make a determination about a person’s life from a predetermined list of rules and refuse service to someone begging to talk to someone about their depression over the loss of family members and how they feel their life is not worth living. I guess since you’re not actually trained in social work, the answer wasn’t readily available in your manual in your desk drawer. Riiiiiight, no you’re not social workers, you’re case workers, clerks, etc. But keep patting yourselves on the back and when someone commits suicide you get all high and mighty and ask, gee why didn’t they reach out for help? What a bunch of phoneys.
