Social Disservices

I don't understand how government employees who have no people skills, who are overpaid and employed to assist people have such a difficult time doing just that. How are you going to work for Social Services or NS Student Assistance and not want to serve or assist people? How can you be employed to help improve the quality of people's lives and be responsible for the betterment of the community and not give a shit? Completing the most mundane of tasks such as calling you back, responding to your emails or even opening your file requires every ounce of their energy. There are people who rely on these services to provide food and shelter for themselves and their children. These are people's lives we are talking about. Then these 'social workers' have the nerve to sound irritated when you call to follow up on the status of your application. I don't get it. —ERGH
