The scene: It is 7:55 AM. I have just emerged from my car and I am walking across the parking lot to the entrance of my job. One of our clients, a man with a mild intellectual disability, has just gotten off the bus and is walking up toward me.
Me: Good morning, Rob [not his real name]! How you doin?
Rob: Good morning, I don’t want to be here today.
Me: I know how you feel, some days are like that.
Rob: I partied too much last night.
Rob: It was my birthday yesterday—
Me: Oh! Happy Birthday!
Rob: –yeah, so I drank a lot last night and then I passed out.
Me: Oh. …So… you probably don’t feel so well.
Rob: Yeah, we had some people over at the house and we was drinkin.
Me: Do you think you’re hung-over?
Rob: NO, NO – I just don’t want to BE here.
Well, that makes two of us. Hang in there, Rob.
