me and my bf both work in a care home for disabled adults. one of our residents likes to call people 'taty head' and when me and my bf saw some mr potato head pyjamas and boxers we couldnt resist getting them for him. we asked the senior if he had enough money and she said yes and that he even had more tucked away in the managers safe. so we went and got them for him. the boxers were £12 and the pyjamas £25. when we took them in the senior started going on that if we dared spend that amount on boxers and jamas again then we wouldnt get the money. another carer started saying we had spent too much too.
now this resident has more than enough money and in my opinion they werent overly expensive, so why not let him have them. i cant see what harm it will have done. i know they are going to start on about it again tomorrow. im fuming that the senior said that when she was the one who said he had enough money. normally they buy stuff from primark for them and its ruined after a couple washes. at least these might last a bit longer
