Just finished watching a very interesting show on the prison system. The speaker was explaining that there are two types of prisoners at most prisons that keep separate from each other and sometimes clash. CONVICT: These are the old timers who like to keep to themselves and just do their time. They don't complain but can TCB ( take care of business) when they have to. They are generally regarded as STAND UP GUYS. INMATE: These are generally newcomers. They file grievances on every litlle thing and whine alot. they don;t know much about the prison system and don't get along with the old timers. They are generally regarded as trouble makers. these are their words ( from my fading memory ) So Which One Are You? A Convict or a Inmate ??????????? Me? I started out as a Convict ( having worked for 25 years before joining UPS and 12 years as a driver for non -union companies. But now I would probably have to say that I am in between a Convict and an Inmate. i think I have been hearing so much whining and crying the last couple years, that it has become contagious !
