Chapter 3

Nice to Meet You...Again...and Again.

Fast forward about 2 years, I had gotten my first job through the Workforce Investment Act (WIA program for short) working as a janitor at the VA (Veterans Administration) medical center in Dublin, Georgia. Once in a while, my 2 coworkers and I were sent to clean up in the Alzheimer's ward, in which all the patients suffered from Alzheimer's Disease, a form of dementia.
We met a man whose room we were cleaning who was so far gone, he introduced himself to someone every time he saw them, as if he'd never met them before. He always told us his name and that he was 75 years old, but he was older than that, however much older he was than he claimed gave us an idea of how long he's had this illness, If I remember correctly, he was 76.
The first time we cleaned his room, he was talking to us, and he asked us our ages, I told him I was 16, another guy told him his age, and my other coworker, Jerwaski said that he was 21, the old man looked at him, shook his head, and said, "You aint right, boy."
