Skarekrough: I spent a few months working for a company that handled the software, kiosks and maintenance of inmate orders in a number of for-profit institutions. On a daily basis I was troubleshooting why orders didn't get delivered to inmates, issues pertaining to items they were or were not allowed to get and dealing with staff at those facilities that absolutely boggled my mind as to how they weren't either inmates themselves or managed to hold down a regular job at all. More often than not complaints came down to "Well, the inmates probably lying and we made enough selling merch to the others at jacked-up enough prices so don't sweat it." In the office there were posters on the wall intended for the visiting rooms stating how much you could show you cared for "Daddy" by putting money in his account so he could buy Snickers bars and other snacks.I hated that job. I hated how these people were institutionalized and once again being victimized, for profit. It was the only place that I won't put on my resume because of ethical issues; there's no way of explaining what they do without making someone realize how god-awful the entire notion was. It's just easier that way.Oh, and before anyone gets on my case about it, none of the descriptions of the job nor in the interviews was the term "prison" ever used. Going in to it all I knew is that it was a kiosk-based system for food delivery.Not so much the CSB.

Fallout Boy: I dont know if you can understand the alien concepts of "friendship", "companionship" and "socialization", but friends usually tease each other and it is in good fun. The only exception when you can flip out like that is after you have repeatedly warned them to stop but they dont.
