Me: Well, I write a lot of things - grants, thank you notes, the occasional will (The Boss does most of those), college exams and legal documents for Mr. Democratic Party, desktop publishing, all sorts of legal sounding things for clients who want to get things notarized but come in with something scribbled on a small notepad. But my main job is a grant writer. I forgot, I also take care of clients and help people. And sometimes try not to choke them.
The Boss: She pays me. That's the most important part. Other than that, she handles all the finances and does more interacting with clients. She handles all the client records (on paper! and I have begged her to let me keep a database but she prefers it on paper so if the place burns down it's all on her). She does all the taxes (sorry folks, no electronic filing) and talks on the phone a lot. She does a great job, but she can be super moody. We get along great though.
Ms. Thrifty: She runs the thrift store and the food pantry and does a bangup job. It took me a long time to get past thinking she was a stone cold you know what but I realized it was just a personality quirk and that she is one of the most God fearing women I know and that she's actually pretty funny.

Welcome to Jaded Humanitarian...
... the blog of venting, laughing, ranting and raving thanks to my place of employment, The Charity. If you have ever heard of the Salvation Army (and if you are in the US you probably have), we are quite a bit like them. We assist low income people with things such as fuel for winter, food, clothing, household goods and furniture, electric and utility bills, medical needs, home repairs and Christmas programs, along with a variety of clerical and tax services. Like any other charity, most of those who come through our doors really do need our help, but we do get our share of crazies, drug addicts, system players, and con artists. These are my stories. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I have.
