What is scary is that I can see this happening to my wife (this IS NOT a driveby snotty remark).
She has chronic health problems, and outweighs me by quite a bit. She uses her weight and health to not have to deal with the outside world, or do anything she doen’t want to do.
When I have been snotty, I’ve said to her that if anyone ever built a recliner with a refrigerator in one arm, a tv remote in the other, and a toilet underneath, I’d never see her walk again.
I have some real sympathy and empathy for whoever was caring for her. They’re going to be in a real bad spot, because it sounds like the cops and the prosecutor want to have some fun at their legal expense. In a situation like this, you have to feed and care for the person who in may cases doen’t want to do the right thing, which is get off their ass and lose the weight. If you kick them in the butt, you feel like a heel. If you walk away, then it’s endangerment. The caregiver can’t win, can’t break even, and can’t quit the game.
