Being Old (convicts)

Old-timers know the value of things inside. They do not ask for handouts they ask to trade. If they have nothing to trade food will suffice. A dinner desert=one cup of coffee. Sugar optional – strength will vary.

Being New (inmates)

Inmates freak out about their circumstances and they cry and yell on the phone. They don’t realize everyone has the same issues? Convicts just don’t bitch as much. They don’t know how to make up their racks so the sheets don’t come off. They ask a lot of ridiculous questions like, when will I go to court, as if a convict has a schedule in their head. They say ridiculous shit like – I’m not jail material.

– as if the rest of us are.
