Dear Annie: I took a job at a local bookstore after my position as a special education teacher was downsized. Now I have a “special ed” problem at work.
A woman comes in here once a week with her son, a mentally challenged adult. The son is big and heavy, and his mother is tiny and fragile. Every time they are here, the son has a meltdown. Today, he threw himself on the floor, blocking the checkout area, and wouldn’t get up.
