I wanted to record this conversation with Lizzy's new social worker that I had today.
Me: "Lizzy is sick, runny yellow snot and laying on the couch sick, do you still want me to bring her for her visit?"
Social Worker: "Yes, go ahead and bring her anyway. And if mom needs transportation she needs to call me herself"
Me: "Ok, now have you heard from dad about the visit today?"
Social Worker: "No, but I am going to assume he is coming so bring her anyway."
Me: "She is sick, his visit is in the middle of her nap. If you guys are not transporting him to the visit he isn't coming."
Social Worker: "Well, I was just going to assume he was coming."
Me: "So you are going to do the opposite of what we have done for the last 18 months, when she is sick and I would have to wake up a sick kid from her nap to bring her to a visit that isn't going to happen because he isn't coming."
Social Worker: "I am working on trying to get ahold of him. Let me talk to my supervisor and let you know what they say."
I then called Lizzy's mom and found out that she couldn't do the visit today so I called the social worker back.
Me: "Hi, it's me. Mom can't come at that time even if you guys were transporting her so I gave her all your information and told her that she needs to call you to set up something for next week."
Social Worker: "Ok, I put in a call to Dad, he didn't answer. Our transporter has to leave at 11:45 am to pick him up for the visit so I will let you know if they leave to go get him."
Last phone call of the day.
Social Worker: "Hi, dad never called back so the visit is cancelled."
Me: "Ok, so we are just planning on all this again for next Monday?"
Social Worker: "Yes."
Me: "Ok, and are you the official new worker on the case or the sub?"
Social Worker: "I am the sub, we are waiting for __________ to get out of training and then she will be taking over the case. That will be in about 3 weeks."
Me: "Ok, thanks for everything. Bye."
