Okay, so I can clearly see that getting my foot in the door of the assisted-living facility I want to volunteer at is gonna be a redo of when I wanted to volunteer with babies with AIDS. Ugh! Looks like this ol' dude has to make an unscheduled appearance to their offices!!!!!!! And this I shall do! If these folks want a pissing match, that's precisely what I'll give 'em!!!
Update: Just got off the phone with the lady in charge of volunteers and she's booked me for an appointment tomorrow @ 4 PM! See! Perseverance is KING!!!!!
