JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't. Jim: Yeah my classification was not right so i was
with a diffent group of inmates then I was
supposed be with I really kept to myself Jerry: No, I am almost 50 years old so I had the common
sense to get along with the other inmates. Almost
every one of them were much younger than me.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates? Jim: I did not really talk to anybody Jerry: I had to ignore the rudeness of people screaming and
yelling after hours when the lights were out and it
was time to sleep. Breakfast is at 4:30 and lights
go out at 11 so that doesn't leave much time for
sleep. I just had to do my best to ignore the noise.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change? Jim: no Jerry: No, the cells were assigned. No one got to choose
who they shared a space with the I know of. You were
given a cell and that was the end of it.
