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.
Carrie: No, most of the people in there were my age, we played cards or basketball most of the time, and we all just wanted the same thing, to go home and be free from the chaos, and bogus charges that the police were trying to get off on us. It is a shame that whatever they say, goes...there were times when I seen other people have differences, or and arguements, but I personally was not in the middle of all of the drama.
Michael: yes everyone is pissed off and dont want to make new friends
Mike: I only talked to one other person while I was there. He made a joke and I laughed.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Carrie: It all really comes down to minding your own business, dont run around talking crazy to people, keep your own business to yourself, telling everyone your business gives them room to talk about you or your situation. Gossip is a big problem starter. I mean, we are all grown adults, there is no reason for all of the drama, it is something that we create, it does not create itself.
Michael: mind my own buisness not talk shit
Mike: I slept the entire time that I was there other than to eat lunch. I must gotten admitted right after breakfast but they still didn't give me anything to eat. I had been there for atleast 5 hours and they didn't take that into consideration.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Carrie: No, you were given the cell and the bed that you were given. Whoever was in there was your cellmate. PERIOD.
Michael: no it was randomly assinged
Mike: No. I was alone for the entire 12 hours.
