Let The Beatings Commence

This probably isn't something I should joke about because it is a serious problem. However, I just couldn't resist.

The Baby Mama had peed her pants in the recreation room and she was soaked. An aide was trying to persuade her to go into the bathroom so she could change her undergarment. She's a fiesty old woman, though, and resists everything. I've seen her hit the aides in the chest — like Elaine on Seinfeld when she says her trademark "Get out!" — only Baby Mama says "No" and "Get away." She was making quite a scene.

Another aide came to help and each took an arm. They guided her to the bathroom with her complaining the whole way.

Mom: [Under her breath.] She's gonna get a beating.

I'm sure that isn't the case, but as soon as someone says something like that, even if they have dementia, it makes you wonder.
