Getting along with other inmates
Time off for good behavior
Food and Commissary
JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Carol: yes and no. Its hard to get along with alot of people who have been there long term-its a total different mentality. Example, one of my cell mates had been there for two years.. she slept during the day and would bang on the window and talk at the door all night.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Carol: i tried to stay out of all the drama. i pretty much kept to myself. A big thing with inmates not getting along is with store. someone would owe someone something and their would be an argument over it. I didnt lend nor ask for other peoples food. also alot of gay girlfriend drama. I am not gay so easy to stay out of it.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Carol: No we were not allowed to ask to be in a cell with someone you know. We changed cell mates about once a week. the guards would even joke that they did it just to mess with us.
