What this social work grad student has heard so far ...
{please remember I'm interning in a counseling unit with the elderly ....}

"My!  You're an *attractive* woman!" {right.  to me.}

"When did that painting show up??" {between residents}
"It's always been there. You can't even remember that?  Good night!"

"No, no.  I don't want to visit with you today."  {right.  to me, again.}

"Can I go out on a limb here?"  {between someone who is not me and client}
"Sure.  Who's got the saw?"
