JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't. Patrick: There are always inmates that are hard to deal
with because there are so many different
personalites. People tend to stay with people who
are most like themselves in one way or another.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates? Patrick: I spent alot of time reading and did not involve
my self with the things that cause arguments like
card games, gambling and loaning out of store
items. I mostly hung out by myself except when the
occasional person would come through that I either
knew or could identify with.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change? Patrick: You dont really get to choose who is in the cell
with you which is another frustrating aspect of
jail life. In transit your cell mates changed
quite a bit. Once you are in the permenant block
They pretty much stayed the same until one or the
other was released.
