33. Why?
The people that work in that industry get paid little, work long hours, are prone to work-related injury, and aren't treated with respect. Our grandma is in an assisted living facility. I am amazed by the sheer amount of work involved in getting Grandma up and dressed for the day, for instance.

She had every right to leave that patient lying on the floor.

>Also, she could have shown the woman that even though she's a piece of sh*t a black person is still willing to help her.<

There's a point where human kindness and compassion is wasted. Let the bigot's family handle it.

Truthfully, I can't believe she was allowed to remain in the facility in the first place after making such a request. Our family had to work to get Grandma into the facility she's in; the staff works hard to make sure their patients are well-cared-for and treated with kindness and dignity. I wonder what the admittance criteria is for this particular facility.
