nice, other than the bitter person's response.
Usually those who go into social work have a desire to help people. Just like in other noble callings, such as medicine, teaching, etc..some see it as just a job. But thankfully there are those who actually CARE about the job they do, and how they do it. I've seen plenty of those there at the food stamp office. I've seen them go out of their way to help clients, by making phone calls, finding resources, etc. I've also seen them try not to become embittered themselves when they have files thicker than a shoebox, from generation after generation after generation of the same family who has no other desire than to live off the state. I've seen them have to receive and make note of warnings of possible violent people who may be coming into that office; people who may be armed.
I've seen it, because I've worked there also.
I've never known ANY of them to expect a pat on the back; they are more used to being cursed at and threatened.
Doesn't bother me a bit to tell someone who has done a good job, that I appreciate it. Doesn't cost me a dime. Makes ME feel good. Maybe, hmk, you should try it sometime.. might do wonders for your outlook :)

Social workers are the lowest form of scum on the face of the earth. The mess with other peoples business when they cannot even run their own lives. I had a neighbor once that was a social worker. I did everything in my power to insure that she was miserable.

And before you jump to stupid topix conclusions, I have no kids and have never spoken to a social worker about anything beyond that one trashy neighbor. I have read about them in papers though, and they, in my opinion, don't even deserve to have air to breath.

C'mon ladies, I donít know what is up with all the hate but the 2 previous posts are absurd! I am now drawing food stamps for the 1st time in my life due to unemployment after 18 years with same job. If you have never worked in an office you have no idea how the paperwork can pile up no matter how hard you work even with OT.
As for social perhaps you need professional help dealing with your anger since you had a neighbor whose profession was social work you did everything in your power to insure that she was miserable, WHY? Is this because you are jealous & miserable? Yes, folks misery does love company & Social is perfect example of whom you DON'T want to be YOUR neighbor.

Let's see...did you miss an appointment...did you let your cases discontinue for some reason? Maybe you're the one at fault here...if you had that attitude and I worked there I would make sure your case was worked the very latest it could...so ha

If you beat your kid or your wife or your husband or your mom if you sell your food stamps to buy drugs while your kids go hungry and dirty then yes i'll mess in your business.I certaintly didn't go into it for the money .I made more waiting tables.I'm sorry you feel that way about social workers sometimes we could all use one even the social workers.Social workers work a variety of jobs not just food stamps and social services.A lot of the people at those jobs don't have social work degrees .They just go in every day and try to do their best.Yes,of course there are some that don't even like people and do it just for a job.

For what it's worth. I have never met a social worker that I would help if I came across them dieing in the street. I am sorry, but they just are not worth the effort.

And for the record, like the other posters, I have never interacted with a social worker. But I have known a few.
Opinion

Well I think if social workers REALLY did their job to make sure that children are taken care of then they could help the world. However, I have not found any in Richmond that have even tried to help three beautiful little boys in my family. I have called, they go for a visit, and then on thier way. Thing is I know these kids are in a messed up situation w/ both parents on drugs, selling everything from their foodstamps to stuff right out of their house for drugs. The other day I found out that they had even put the youngest on whole milk and started to sell their wic cards at 7 months old. So, if there is a social worker out there that cares about the kids here in Richmond I would like to find out whom they are and give them thanks but like I said I haven't seen one yet.

Opinion?? You will never get a social worker to do anything. The Social Worker position is the welfare position of the work force. Let me explain.

If you want to hold down a job, but are too stupid to actually learn anything to do a constructive position like doctor, lawyer, factory, designer, just anything that requires any skills. The you get a Social Worker degree. That insures that the state will give you a check, just the same as other welfare people, but allow you the dignity of saying you work.

Don't get me wrong. It is a real job. Just not a good one, and the people that do it are actually trash, just the same as an actual welfare reciepient.

As for getting any help for your family. The self rightous scum claiming to be social workers are going to be of no help at all.

Jealousy =
1.When someone achieves something you've been wanting but havenít done so yet.

2.When someone you hate succeeds.

3.When someone manages to get something and you donít think they deserve to.

Root causes of jealousy.....
1.Lack of self confidence
2.Poor self image
3.Fear
4.Insecurity

When someone becomes jealous he may start to invade the private life of the person they are envious of and that seems to be what has happened here.

I think you need to re-read the posting. I read nothing about jealousy, just a general distaste in social workers. And who can blame the poster for that? They are useless you know.

Maby they are trying to tell you to get a job.
They are tired of giving people who get out and work their tax money to slime bags like you.
They are there to help the needy and if you have a computer and internet you don't need stamps.
You should pay your rent and bills out of your welfare check instead of buying a computer and internet.
That is something you don't need if you are living off. HARD WORKING PEOPLE'S TAX'S
Get a life and please get a job one where you can get up off your sorry but.
Being on topix running down the system because you did not get your stamps is no paying job.
YOU MUST HAVE TOLD A LITTLE LIE SHAME ON YOU.
