Interview with Mary

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Mary: well it is jail, and people are very tense, once I was moved out of confinement, and placed in the cell block with the other inmates its kind of like being sized up the first few days. best thing to do is not get buddy with ANYONE in there. understandable to talk with people and interact but sometimes you cant help but to tell them about whats going on with you.

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Mary: do not loan anything to anybody. do not give away anything. when the older inmates(been there the longest) want something or are being demanding.... stay out of it! have compassion towards others and be respectful, but DO NOT LET anyone run over you. It can get tense in tight quarters

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Mary: cannot choose you have to take the open bed that is given to you. when ever someone gets out (which you never know when) that could be a cellmate change... but it is jail and it is like a revolving door
